Devenport Estate was built after Alasdair's grandparents house in Scotland. The original Blaracha is in Roy Bridge not far from Fort William built in 1905. Devenport Estate was also built at the turn of the century, in 2000, in Korokoro, Petone in New Zealand.

We have several hundred Pinot Gris grapevines and make our own wine when we can, and also make our own cider. Sometimes we buy in commercial fruit to make wine or cider. We have free range hens providing fresh eggs for breakfast.

"Staying at the Devonport was one of the best experiences we had during our stay in NZ. The accomodations were outstanding and the setting couldn't have been more beautiful. Alasdair and Christopher went out of their way to make us feel at home while suggesting restaurants and points of interest. They also covered all of the small details - internet access, laundry assistance and a wonderful continental breakfast spread. When we go back to NZ our first stop will be the Devonport Estate!"

"This elegant B&B with it's own vineyard, was our favourite B&B in NZ. The view from our room was spectacular, and the homestead was filled with old-world charm and interesting 'antique' touches, although it was built in 2000."

"A beautiful home, lovely en-suite room, stunning views and a friendly welcome from Chris. A free washing service was very much appreciated. Highly recommended"
