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.

 Spectacular location and beautiful outlook across the vines to rolling hills. Lovely little cottage, great facilities and the best hosts that anyone could hope for. 

 Very lovely cottage, clean, tidy and well equipped. Highly recommend and lovely hosts who even gave us a lift to our friends house. Very enjoyable stay. Thanks Kristin 

 We have returned to Europe after a 3 month trip to New Zealand and this beautiful Cottage was one of the highlights of our whole trip. The kind and friendly hospitality, the very elegant accommodation, the settling 'in' the vines and the local advice that guided us to some great experiences, all made for a wonderful stay. If and when we can come back to NZ, we would love to stay again and enjoy a glass of wine sitting on the terrace with the two beautiful black Labs there for company. 

 Perfect setting in the vines and away from most of civilisation. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and had a well set up kitchen with plenty of breakfast provisions and other things that you may need if you are doing a bit of cooking. Only thing that would have helped is bug screens on the window to keep the nasties out when you don;t want to put the aircon on.

 Our travels around New Zealand (both North and South Islands) are now over and it is time to reflect on our wonderful holiday. Our short stay at Vigne Cottage was undoubtably the best location in which we stayed. Everything exceeded our expectations from the warm welcome from the owners through to the idyllic location and great comfort and facilities of the cottage. We especially appreciated the insights into the working of the vineyard and of course the tasting of some of the product !
