A home away from home for friends and family to gather together for a landmark celebration, or a warm and luxurious weekend retreat.

For those seeking a countryside experience but aren’t prepared to compromise on urban luxuries...The Cattlestop is the answer.

The house has been thoughtfully furnished, the decor is bold and imaginative, and the opulent light fittings are a striking feature.

The kitchen is the hub of the house, with French doors opening into the library and out to the deck with a view across the lawn to the pool. The house is well equipped, with a generous supply of cookware, plate ware and stemware; you can wine and dine and have an unforgettable time.

The Cocktail Lounge offers a charming mix of vintage seating and modern art. It is perfect for relaxing or for entertaining your guests. Open the French doors to give the most gorgeous view across the neighbouring vineyard to the distant Tararua Ranges.

The bedrooms are beautifully presented with luxurious European style beds and French doors opening out to the deck or your very own private terrace. The twin room is light and bright, perfect for friends or children.

With expansive grounds and both a swimming pool and outdoor spa pool, there are plenty of ways to keep everyone entertained. The abundance of sheltered spaces and terraces provide the ideal setting for relaxing in the shade on a sunny day, or dining on those balmy Wairarapa evenings.

Ideally located; just 8 minutes’ drive SE of Martinborough. At The Cattlestop, the gourmet food and wine of the Wairarapa region are available only a short drive away at some of New Zealand’s most famous and award winning vineyards. In particular, some of Ata Rangi Vineyards grapes are grown just a stone’s throw away from The Cattlestop.

You will find the comforts of home here at Cattlestop. The inviting luxury and relaxed atmosphere will be sure to beg you back again.

    The secluded vineyard location was perfect for a winter weekend getaway but it would be great for all seasons. Great social and private spaces with enough to do for the whole family or group of friends. A bit cold on arrival but the three fireplaces quickly heated the whole house up. Can't wait to go back!

    We had a brilliant time at the Cattlestop and would highly recommend this house. Everything is well thought out - plenty of utensils in the kitchen, wood for the fire, eggs, chocolates and milk was a thoughtful touch, beautiful bedding and furniture, gorgeous gardens, and the spa just topped everything off!
