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.

    Lovely, spacious and warm home! Was such a great space to have a group of friends celebrate a couple of birthdays and attend Toast. Very handy for walking to the Square and added bonus of being able to bring my dog as well. Would definitely stay again!

    This is a beautiful house, very well equipped, large and spacious, comfortable and convenient to everything. The only downside was the TV had no arial and we did not realise we needed to bring our own sky decoder. There were plenty of DVD's. It just meant more time to relax in front of the fire with a glass of Martinboroughs best.

    Nice cozy place on the outskirts of town, fully equiped with everything you'd need. We had a fantastic 2 days here and would happily book it again in the future.
