Description

  • Colonial cottage with character features and wood burner set in private gardens
  • Relax in a pretty and fully renovated cottage in wine country
  • Close to vineyards, cafes and restaurants in Martinborougn

Colonial Cottage is believed to have been built in the 1880s and is reputedly the second-oldest house in Martinborough.

It's close to all the vineyards, cafes and restaurants of the village, the wine capital of south Wairarapa.

The character features, including two wooden ceilings, have been kept while the cottage has been renovated to offer a relaxing stay.

It is flooded with light with French doors leading out from the dining room to a private, rear garden.

The dining room features beautiful leadlight doors, a large period mirror and an old wooden table for entertaining.

For when you want to crack open a bottle of wine, the large living area opens up from the dining room, and has a wood burner when the cold nights hit, with all firewood supplied.

The kitchen is fully equipped if you feel like cooking or good for stocking the cheeses, dips and sourdough bread you've bought.

The pretty bathroom contains a shower, a bath and a toilet.

There's also another toilet in the adjoining laundry.

The cottage sleeps two couples or a small family.

There are two double bedrooms, one upstairs and one down, both with queen beds, and a smaller bedroom with two singles.

The narrow, steep stairs may mean the cottage is unsuitable for small children.

It is smokefree, and we prefer two night bookings at weekends. There is a minimum three night stay at long weekends or for special events, i.e. Toast Martinborough.

Whether you want to visit a number of wineries, all close by, take advantage of the cafes and restaurants, go shopping or go for long walks in the countryside, this cottage is a wonderful base to check out all that Martinborough has to offer.

  • Beautiful cottage and large private garden

    Beautiful cottage and large private garden. The fireplace is very good on a chilly night. We had a lovely restful holiday, and would love to return some day.

    Completely renovated cottage, very comfortable with loads of firewood to keep us warm. The heated floors in the bathroom and kitchen were a treat too. Loved it!

    Delightful property with a peaceful garden and easy walking distance to the village and cafe. Immaculately clean and well appointed. We had a fabulous relaxing time beside the wood fire with our two schnauzers. It was just what we need to get away from it all for a few days. Thanks
