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. A complimentary bottle of StoneCutter Wine is waiting for you and your first evening for stays of 2 nights or more.

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.

We also own The Shearer's Quarters (across the road), which if rented in conjunction with Dara Cottage could be the perfect solution to your large group requirements.

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.

  • This was a great location for us

    This was a great location for us. We had a function further down Todds Road and it was perfect for what we wanted

  • Lovely cottage and very peaceful location

    Lovely cottage and very peaceful location. The cottage has every amenity you could want and there was an extra touch with a bottle of wine from their own vineyard. Above all was very clean and tidy. We would love to return.

  • Dara is cosy, comfortable and warm, nestled among the vines at Stonecutter

    Dara is cosy, comfortable and warm, nestled among the vines at Stonecutter. Everything you could need is provided, and the village is close enough for all the delicacies this region has to offer. This is the best antidote to the city, and waking up to birdsong and nature in a working vineyard is very special, even on the wettest weekend of the year! Highly recommended :)

  • Great location

    Great location. The bikes were great to get around the vineyards on. Suggest they could add baskets to the bikes to put any purchased wine in! The cottage kitchen is fully kitted out including a dishwasher. Beware however the smoke alarm above the gas hobs are very sensitive. Cooking our complemtary free range eggs and bacon they did keep going off. The bottle of wine from their own vineyard was a nice touch.
