We are normally put off staying where the owners house is on the property, just because if we go away we want to be able to relax and spend time by ourselves. At the Wine Drinkers Cottage we understand this totally. We are happy to leave a key out for you and make sure that you are left in peace. Of course, should you require a sober driver for a trip around the wineries, or advice about the best place to find fresh olives, we can help.

We really do want our guests to enjoy themselves and hope that you will spread the word.

The Cottage is tucked away down a long drive. It's exactly four minutes drive to Carterton shopping area and four minutes the other way to Greytown. There are special things on every day in the Wairarapa, its a vibrant area and only an hour from Wellington city should you want to head to the bright lights. The train service both North and South is great, you don't have to drive if you would prefer not to. We also have some stunning Coastline, Light houses, seals lying around on the rocks and whitebait fritters at Lake Ferry.

Our Cottage is not posh or fancy, however, its got everything you need with Sky TV, great wine glasses, good linen, heaps of books with a reading nook, warmth and plenty of light. We have tried to get that "charming" feeling with a mixture of old and new. Yes we do have jigsaws if it rains. There is plenty of room to park, a semi rural outlook with a pony or two in the paddock next door. We have an acre of land for the kids to run around on.

The Cottage has a deck, just right for sitting on in the evenings, glass of wine in hand and views to the hills. We would love to be able to make our place your favourite "go to" for all your holidays and short breaks.

Sadly we do not have wheelchair access, we are working on it.

  • Lovely wee cottage, very clean and tidy

    Lovely wee cottage, very clean and tidy. Owners went above and beyond and supplied us with a lovely cheese platter, wine, bacon, eggs, bottled water, orange juice etc. We stayed here with a toddler and a baby, and it was ideal. I would recommend to anyone and will probably stay here again. 5 Stars!

  • What a fantastic cottage

    What a fantastic cottage. The hospitality of the hosts is unbelievable. We have been to other holiday baches and cottages but never have been welcomed in this grand style. The cottage is exceptionally clean with all the bells as whistles of a modern 5 star hotel. Clean linen and clean everything else. we certainly will be back to spend at least a week.
