Enjoy a peaceful stay in this spacious ( 130 sq m) and well appointed country cottage. End your day with a glass of Martinborough wine on the comfortable and very large front verandah while you watch the sun setting behind the Tararua mountains. Or take your morning coffee on the sun drenched back verandah with a fabulous view looking east.

Newly renovated, the charming cottage has retained beautiful character features but has all the contemporary facilities you could want. Two large french doors open on to the verandah from the large master bedroom (with ensuite) and from the lounge/dining room. The large main bathroom features a roll top bath and all rooms have polished wooden floors and stylish decor.

Plan a trip to the iconic fishing village of Ngawi and then on to the Cape Palliser lighthouse and seal colony - just 40 minutes away. Or try the famous fish and chips at Lake Ferry, a 20 minute drive away. Alternatively stick close to home and walk to the vineyards in Dry River Road for a wine tasting or lunch. Or you could bike to Martinborough to explore the town and try one of the many eateries and cafes - or a spot of shopping!

Other local activities include the cinema, an 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, gym, beauty spa and swimming pool, all just minutes away.
