Cute little cottage in a semi rural setting

Family-friendly cottage in Carterton

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.
Our Cottage is not posh or fancy, however, its got everything you need with Sky TV, great wine glasses, good linen, heaps of books with a reading nook, warmth and plenty of light. We have tried to get that "charming" feeling with a mixture of old and new. Yes we do have jigsaws if it rains. There is plenty of room to park, a semi rural outlook with a pony or two in the paddock next door. We have an acre of land for the kids to run around on.
The Cottage has a deck, just right for sitting on in the evenings, glass of wine in hand and views to the hills. We would love to be able to make our place your favourite "go to" for all your holidays and short breaks.
Special conditions:
Sadly we do not have wheelchair access, we are working on it.

Air-conditioned accommodation at this cottage offers DVD players and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas. Additionally, rooms include a hairdryer and an iron/ironing board.

5/5 Excellent

A fabulous location for a break away
We had a fabulous weekend and throughly recommend the Wine Drinkers Cottage to all. We loved sitting on the deck enjoying the complimentary platter and wine/beer and will definitely be back. Amazing hosts and an amazing venue.

4/5 Good

A warm cosy cottage
The owner went out of their way to be helpful and hospitable. Heaters were turned on so the cottage was warm and inviting on arrival. Many delightful offerings in the kitchen, thank you. A couple of possibilities for upgrading would be higher quality linen and more comfortable lounge furniture, but the cottage is priced appropriately for what is there.

5/5 Excellent

Highly recommend
Wish we could have stayed longer. Homemade treats and wine that the hosts left for us was such a nice touch. The cottage is so well set up, with everything we could possibly have needed and more. It exceeded expectations. We'll be back :)

5/5 Excellent

Lovely homely cottage
All round lovely stay - quiet, private, warm, comfy, semi-rural but super close drive to things you might want to do or see in Wairarapa. Hosts have incorporated lovely touches (kitchen, bathroom supplies!) & champion their local area. Recommend!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cottage
Lovely, clean, quiet little cottage with everything we ( 2 couples) needed and more. Wonderful hospitality with many very appreciated extras like freshly made bread and a tray of cold meats, cheese, pesto and more. We did make use of one of the homemade meals in the freezer, a very nice chilli con carne. We enjoyed our stay.
