Description

  • Rural setting in a boutique vineyard yet within easy reach of the village
  • Secluded, quiet, with private garden area
  • Walking or cycling distance to many of Martinborough's best known vineyards

Dara Cottage is a fully equipped, colonial styled, yet modern built holiday home in the lovely vineyard setting of Dara Vineyard.

Complimentary breakfast supplies consisting of our own free range eggs, bacon, bread, milk, butter, jam, plunger coffee, and Twinnings teas are supplied for your first morning.

The home is a colonial cottage with wood features inside, yet it was built about 8 years ago by a Greytown replica cottage building company. There is cozy west facing deck for afternoon drinks and a large private back garden where the kids can safely kick a ball around. A North facing sheltered porch provides solace for your morning coffee routine whilst over looking the vineyard.

Freeview TV will provide evening entertainment as well as a DVD player.The kitchen is functional and well equipped and there is also a cozy wood burner.

The cottage is perfect for that weekend get away on a vineyard and has beautiful views over our Dara vineyard to the hills beyond.

Free wifi is available and cellular coverage is great.

In the vicinity:

A short stroll to other Martinborough vineyards, the 18-hole golf course and less than a five-minute drive or cycle ride to the Village Square and cafes, restaurants and shops. Explore the local vineyards - there are at least eight within walking distance and others less than 10 minutes by car.

Within easy reach are the iconic fishing village of Ngawi and the Cape Palliser lighthouse and adjacent seal colony, an hour's drive away. Lake Ferry, 30 minutes away, offers its famous fish and chips with amazing sunsets over the western hills.

Other local activities include the cinema, library, beauty spa, swimming pool, horse riding, all very close by.

  • This was the perfect place for our visit to Martinborough

    This was the perfect place for our visit to Martinborough. The setting in the middle of the vineyard and the wonderfully appointed cottage were absolutely fantastic. The picrues do not do it justice.So quite and peaceful with all the birdsongs. The wonderful breakfast makings, including the fresh eggs from the onsite chooks were a real bonus. I can't imagine there could be a better place to stay if you come to Martinborough.

  • Great cottage with excellent location

    Great cottage with excellent location. We usually stay closer to the Village centre, but it was nice to try somewhere different which was closer to some of the vineyards. The fire was much appreciated with the freezing weather and the facilities were good. Couldn't get the Freeview to work, but that may have been my lack of electronic expertise.
