Martinborough's world famous vineyards are all around us. Just next door is Olivo; you can hop over the fence and taste some of their fabulous olive oil. The Martinborough Golf Course is a leisurely stroll down the road, and Martinborough Square, with its bustling shops, cafés and restaurants is an easy 3 km walk or cycle along country roads.

The General Store has been renovated with your comfort in mind. Fully insulated and beautifully appointed, a world away from city stress you can cocoon yourself in peace and warmth, luxuriate in the clawfoot bath or simply relax by the woodburner with a good book.

Take time out from cooking and eat at one of Martinborough's many restaurant's and cafe's. We love Cool Change and Micro Bar for their great food, wines and craft beer's. A BBQ is provided for casual dining at home.

Relocated from Eastbourne and tastefully renovated and refurbished, our elegant two bedroom cottage, 3 km from Martinborough Square, is nestled between vineyards and our own olive grove.

Special conditions: Min stays for peak weekends such as Toast Martinborough Holiday weekends & fairs.

    Fabulous place! Great location within walking distance to some wineries and quick drive or relatively easy walk into town. Wonderful house with everything you could need - especially loved the porch and surrounding olive orchard. My family and I had an amazing, relaxing stay. We'll definitely be back again! Highly recommended.

  • Truly enjoyable

    Truly enjoyable. Has everything you need in a wonderful rural setting. I enjoyed this because it was not surrounded by other B&Bs - and the stars were beautiful at night. Not 'fancy' but clean, terrific rustic style and extremely comfortable. I would recommend it for sure.

    Lovely country location, very comfortable, with an excellent and well-equipped kitchen. It was lovely to sit on the deck and look out into the olive grove. We really enjoyed our weekend here

  • Lovely cottage set in a private setting

    Lovely cottage set in a private setting. All the amenities we required however if we had been staying longer than 3 nights I would have missed having a washing machine as I've got small kids. Also would be enhanced by a few more board games and some second hands books for guests to enjoy whilst relaxing. This would not put me off staying again, I would just take my own ! So nice to be able to take our dog with us too.
