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 property is stunning. The cottage is situated in a beautiful vineyard and perfectly manicured gardens. We can't wait to come back! 

 Beautiful cottage in fabulous location. The views from every window are lovely and the gardens looked like a stately home! The cottage was beautifully decorated and in excellent condition. It was very comfortable and cosy and had everything you could need. The outdoor areas were great, seating on every side in order to catch the sun. The owners were really friendly and helpful, offering advice on vineyards, bike hire etc. Max the dog made it a perfect stay! p.s - wine was great too! :) 

 Lovely cottage in beautiful surroundings, grape vines and lovely gardens surround you, deck on two sides to sit and listen to the vines grow. We have visited a number of times and this cottage is always our first option for accommodation. We will be back.... 

 Vigne Cottage is outstanding, we could not have asked for more. The cottage is such a fantastic place to stay, quiet, warm and very comfortable. Neal and Suzanna have set the cottage up so well and it is just a delight to have stayed. The location is fantastic, from the meal at the local Puketapu pub and just over the hill to both Napier and Hastings and the wineries and great cafes. Look forward to returning again. 

 What didn't I like! Everything was awesome. It was clean, modern and was in a beautiful vineyard. The owners were a joy to deal with, giving use tips on where to go in the surrounding areas. Not to mention the complementary breakfast and bottle of wine. I most definitely stay here again if in the Hawkes bay area.
