  • Close to vineyards
  • set in an Olive Grove
  • Clawfoot bath and wood burner

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.

  • We loved our stay at the general store

    We loved our stay at the general store. We’ve seen feedback that hasn’t been as favourable for the property and we couldnt disagree more! This gorgeous converted shop is rustic and charming! It is a little further out from the square (probably a 20-30 minute walk) but that just added to the peace and tranquility, it truly felt like a rural escape! We can’t speak highly enough about the general store and can’t wait to come back!

  • windows dirty, ants in power sockets, no soap

    windows dirty, ants in power sockets, no soap. property not well presented which was a shame as in all other ways a great character accommodation in the country.

  • A wonderfully cute and cosy cottage

    A wonderfully cute and cosy cottage. It was very well presented, clean and good amenities. Plenty of linen and kitchen supplies. The fire was delightful and there was plenty of wood (although some was a little wet). The location - about 5 mins out of Martinborough was fantastic - very close to wineries.

  • The property was just what we were hoping for

    The property was just what we were hoping for. It is a quaint, picturesque bach that was perfect for our needs. The birds that visit in the morning and evening were a delight to see and the sound of the sheep was a joy to wake up to. Our daughter enjoyed the clawfoot bath and the beds were comfortable. It could do with a big spring clean and a place to store rubbish would be helpful on a long stay. The General Store is a beautiful place to stay and we highly recommend it.
