Built for a couple who want to enjoy peace and luxurious comfort in the countryside. Play a little golf - putting green at your door; wander through our extensive gardens and rolling countryside. The cottage is a delightful retreat with full kitchen to create your gourmet feasts from the Wairarapa's best produce. Enjoy the very comfy bed, cosy fireside reading or courtyard with views. And all just a picturesque 15 minute drive to the restaurants of Greytown, Martinborough and Carterton.

The space

Much of the furniture is bespoke. Enjoy breakfast out in the courtyard with freshly laid eggs from our freerange hens. Over the years we have been planting trees - lots of trees - if you would like to help us in our gradual re-afforestation you can purchase a good quality eco-sourced native from Norfolk Road nursery - we would be delighted to plant it for you!

Guest access

Putting green, orchards, garden - often with produce you can harvest, private regenerating bush and wetland walks, paddocks with sheep and horses. The putting green is literally on your doorstep and is available (depending on ground conditions) for you to practice your short game, You can book a private short game lesson with Jeremy, an ex New Zealand representative golfer. Ping pong table in the woolshed great fun on rainy days.

A lovely little getaway, it’s the perfect place to escape the city for a weekend and enjoy the quiet and beautiful scenery. Jane’s place is perfectly situated between Greytown and Martinborough, a mere 10min drive from Carterton. Make sure you have a good wander of the property and see the animals and don’t forget to take full advantage of all of the fruit and veg growing right on your doorstep! The loveliest hosts you could wish for. Thanks for a great stay!

Absolutely beautiful farm, and the cottage is high-end and comfortable. We could've easily stayed a week. Enjoyed walking around the property and meeting the horses. We were greeted with a fire already warming the cottage, fresh eggs from their chickens, and local walnuts. Cannot praise the host and their accommodation enough-would recommend to everyone!

Dreamy! Completely picturesque settling overlooking the valley and paddocks below. Beautifully stylish Accom & lush comfy bed. Would recommend Balter Bar & Kitchen in Carterton for yummo tapas and Poppies Vineyard for tastings and platter - bookings a must. Thank you Jeremy & Jane
