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 super friendly owners, the peacefulness of the area, everything about the inside from the gorgeous high thread count sheets to the fresh eggs left for us by the owners. Everything has been thought out so carefully and professionally.

    The cottage was perfect for our requirements. Clean, comfortable and well equipped, in a delightful location. Neal and Suzanna were very welcoming and offered useful recommendations for our visit to Hawkes Bay. We would love to return again.

    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.

    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!
