Historical farm house with a character and recently reconditioned original wooden floors. The name of the house is 'The Shearers Quarters' and it's one of the oldest houses in the area. It's a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors all around. The beach is only 10 minutes drive away and offers good surfing, fishing etc.

The house is on the bottom of 'Battery Hill', also known as Kakahimakatea Hill, wich is one of the archaeological sites of Wairarapa Moana and offers spectacular views of the whole Wairarapa Valley.

  • Great place to stay if you are wanting solitude

    Great place to stay if you are wanting solitude. The house is full of character. Yet comfortable enough. Beach close, martinborough not far and the nice wee walk up the hill behind gave a stunning view. I'll be back.
