    Thoroughly enjoyed staying at the shearers quarters. Great rural location but not far from Martinborough and all the vineyards. Nice clean accommodation, comfortable beds.

  • Absolutely loved staying here

    Absolutely loved staying here. We have been here twice, with a large group. The facilities are extremely well set-up, with comfortable and clean bedding, extra towels, and the kitchen has everything you need down to the coffee plunger. The river is beautiful, the wood box well stocked for the fire, and has absolutely stunning scenery. This place is super handy to Martinborough, easy to find, and left us all super relaxed. We will absolutely be back again! It's a firm favourite.

  • Property is good value for the price

    Property is good value for the price. We didn't mind the separate toilet/shower block. Toilets and basins are modern/recent. Showers are older style with spout directly above head. Main room was open plan kitchen, lounge, dining room. Kitchen is well provided. Large 12 seat dining table. 6 lounge chairs. Wall-mounted fan heater, column heater and nice fire place with wood provided. We would be happy to come again.
