Description

  • Fully renovated and large private garden ideal for balmy nights
  • Lovely warm cottage that accommodates up to 6 adults
  • Close to vineyards, cafes and restaurants in Martinborough

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.

  • We all loved the house which was spacious and well appointed, equipped...

    We all loved the house which was spacious and well appointed, equipped with everything we needed including stacks of books and movies and use of bikes although the town was a very easy walk away. Most of all we enjoyed the garden with its big flat lawn for games and outdoor furniture and cushions for outside dining and general lounging. Everything about the house was generous and welcoming for the four of us and our 2 dogs.

  • 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!
