    Gorgeous little cabin, cosy and well equipped, in a quiet location but only a few minutes walk from the centre of Martinborough and walkable to a few vineyards if you're that way inclined! Would definitely return for a romantic break.

    Location is excellent and not far from all the amenities that Martinborough has to offer. The accommodation was very clean and homely. Very comfortable bed, excellent bathroom facilities and all the kitchen equipment you would need if you wanted to cook. Would highly recommend this property and when we return to Martinborough will definitely book again.
