A beautifully presented and stylish cottage situated on a 25 acre working vineyard in the picturesque Dartmoor Valley. Lovely views across the vineyard and valley landscape.
Close to the Tutaekuri River, which offers great trout fishing and scenic walks. There are also many cycle trails nearby - most of which are flat, easy and perfect for families.
Superb semi-rural location, which is ideally placed for guests to be able to enjoy all of the many varied activities that the Hawke's Bay offers!

A quiet, warm and restful cottage - with private courtyard, sunny verandahs and ample car parking. Just the perfect place to come back to after a day of exploring.
Complimentary breakfast provisions are provided for your first day of stay - as well as a bottle of wine from our award-winning vineyards. There is also free Wi-Fi.

Minimum stay 2 nights. Rate is negotiable for longer stays.

 The cottage is set in a glorious location among the vines. The Dartmoor valley offers a sense of spaciousness. It is far enough away from city and suburb to feel rural, but not so far that the travel was a chore. The cottage itself is warm, welcoming and private. The decor is very tastefully done. It was very easy to feel like we were coming home at end of each day. 

 Good quiet location, very tidy and well maintained cottage. 

 What a great place to stay and wonderful hosts / family. We felt very welcome and they did everything to make our stay even better. The local tips for family outings were a succes and the dogs and the trampoline a big hit with our 2 year old. And the cottage is just wonderful and has everything you need - reality is even better than the pictures. And of course I have to mention the delicious wine and the beautiful views and location. I hope we're able to return some day! 

 The cottage was absolutely perfect for both our requirements, and the location for our recent trip to Hawkes Bay. The personal touches in the cottage were awesome, and very much appreciated. We will certainly rebook if we are back in the area again. 

 Very comfortable and immaculately kept cottage in the middle of a working vineyard. Tranquil and pretty - highly recommended.
