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 grounds are gorgeous and so well manicured. We loved that even though the cottage is relatively close to the main house, you felt totally privacy nestled in the vines. The cottage is very well appointed and has everything you can think of for your stay. Can't wait to come back!

    Fantastic location amongst the vines. My family's second time staying at this very beautiful property over the Christmas, New Year break. Thank you to Neal, Suzanna, Sam, Alex and the two most friendliest Labs (Max and Ted) for sharing this very special place with us. The wines are also outstanding.

    Very peaceful among the vines. Easy to find and get to. Accommodation itself was very comfortable. I would use it again.

    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.
