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 is a lovely location in the midst of vineyards and with a lovely garden and decks that look out on both. It's comfortable and well-equipped, and made a fantastic venue for a special weekend for a group of six.

    Rented this lovely place for Toast Martinborough, it's about a half hour walk away from the Square and was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The breakfast supply of bacon and eggs were also much appreciated! Look forward to coming back again :)
