Location + Surroundings

This cottage is located in the countryside of Martinborough in the South Wairarapa District of the North Island's Wellington Region. It is situated on a working farm, where it is surrounded by a bucolic landscape of rolling fields, vineyards, and copses. Around the five-hectare (12-acre) property, guests will find a regenerating forest, a pond, and an orchard. Ducks can be seen swimming about the pond, while the orchard attracts a variety of birdlife.

Just to the north of Martinborough, the Ruamahanga River and Huangarua River fork off from each other, the former providing opportunities for fishing, the latter for canoeing in a scenic setting. To explore the countryside on land, guests can take a stroll on the Rapaki Walk, a one-to-two-hour loop trail that takes guests through farmland and provides breathtaking views of the Wairarapa Valley and the area's vineyards.

Scattered around Martinborough, guests will find more than 20 vineyards that can be reached by foot or bike from the town's main square, which is about an eight-minute drive away from the cottage. Here, guests will also find a restaurant (Martinborough Restaurant and Bar), a pub (The Pukemanu Bar and Eatery), a cafe (Cafe Medici), a coffee shop (In the Neighbourhood), a brewery (Martinborough Brewery), and a cinema with a restaurant and a bar (Circus Cinema).

With its picturesque country roads and more than 20 vineyards set alongside them, Martinborough is an ideal location for biking, wine tasting, or a combination of the two. The roads are hilly, so guests may want to consider using electric assist bikes, which are available to rent from Green Jersey Cycle Tours.

For a scenic walk through the countryside, guests can go on the Rapaki Walk. To explore their surroundings by water, guests can go canoeing on the Ruamahanga River with Kahutara Canoes.

To see the operations of one of the area's farms up-close and enjoy opportunities to feed and pet farm animals, guests can take a tour of the Martinborough Manner farm. For golfing, guests can hit the links at the Martinborough Golf Club.

For dining and entertainment, guests can head into the town center of Martinborough, where they will find a variety of options, including the Martinborough Restaurant and Bar, The Pukemanu Bar and Eatery, Cafe Medici, In the Neighbourhood, Martinborough Brewery, and Circus Cinema.
