This little cottage gives more than you expect from the description. It is warm cozy and plenty big enough for four adults to spend a weekend away without tripping over each other. There are even home cooked frozen meals for those who arrive too late or too tired to go out to a restaurant. Comfy beds. Lovely peaceful rural outlook yet only minutes to the centre of the township. Every appliance you need in the kitchen from coffee machine to full size gas oven! Seriously recommend Winedrinkers Cottage to anyone.

Truly above and beyond with the extra touches. The cottage itself is spacious, well equipped, stylish, etc. but all the extras set it apart. Wine, cheese and spreads platter, fresh eggs, bacon, other breakfast items, candy dishes all around, and even fresh veggies from the garden! I had scolded my daughter for picking some gorgeous swiss chard, thinking that couldn't possibly be ok, but in fact it is encouraged! Great stay and I highly recommend!

About your host, Barry

Barry's Photo

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.

There is a team behind The Cottage, we live in the Main House which is situated on the corner of a one acre block. Plenty of privacy. Personally, I love to restore Mini cars, drink red wine, eat different foods and spend time with my family.

We are in a semi rural location, the closest neighbour are the horses in the paddock next door. We have some great walks in the Wairarapa, along with stunning vineyards, a car racing track, and aviators galore. The whole region makes sure that there are interesting and fun things on every day. No one sits around bored in this area.
