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.

Wifi is available but it can be little patchy at times. Cellular data works 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.

Special conditions: Breakfast supplies supplied for first morning, including fresh free range eggs. Stays of 2 nights include a bottle of StoneCutter Wine. Special event weekends (eg Toast Martinborough, Fair weekends, Round the Vines race, garden tour and long weekends such as Queen's Birthday) are a two night stay minimum. Dara Cottage and Dara Vineyard is a non-smoking property both inside and out.

    We've taken your feedback about wifi onboard and have since improved the range and reliability in the cottage. However, speed is still an issue.

    The property is a 25 minute walk to town but in the heart of vineyard country and is, in itself, a beautiful setting. The cottage is well kitted out with everything you need and is truly 'home away from home'. We highly recommend it for 1-3 couples or families.

  • The cottage was incredible

    The cottage was incredible. From the moment I arrived, the place was bright, fresh, clean, exciting, inviting but natural at the same time. With a wooden and cream interior, it felt like it was in tune with its surroundings, whilst still feeling modern and luxurious. The bach had everything I could possibly need and more. There was a spacious garden with fruit trees, and the cottage was perfectly private. Highly recommended. The beds were so comfy and everything was spotless when I arrived.
