This lovely cottage is set in 1/3rd acre of garden. It is in the countryside, 4 minutes drive from the shops, cafes and restaurants of Carterton. A peaceful haven to escape to and have a break from your busy life.
The house is comfortable and well-equipped. There is a cozy wood burner for cold spells and heaters in all the bedrooms and living areas. The kitchen/dining room has French doors which lead out onto the large deck with outdoor furniture - a lovely place for your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine surrounded by birdsong.
An ideal spot to base yourself and enjoy walks in the Tararua Forest Park, which is 30 minutes drive away with the Mount Holdsworth walk being one of New Zealand's finest walks. Waiohine Gorge is 20 minutes drive from us. Fensham Reserve is our local Forest and Bird Reserve.
The Wairarapa has so much to offer and is perfect for a short break. Enjoy wine tasting at the local vineyards or the Martinborough vineyards which are about 20 minutes drive away. Carterton has it's own golf course, a Brewpub - Regent 58 Brewery and Alehouse and swimming pools which are free of charge. Clareville Bakery (awarded best rural cafe in 2017) is 5 minutes drive away. Greytown, a beautifully preserved Victorian town is also 5 minutes drive away and has a myriad of shops and restaurants - a popular destination.
There are many events throughout the year, in fact far too many to name them all but they include:
The Wairarapa Balloon Festival held at Easter 2019
Cruise Martinborough - Classic Car Rally 24 January 2019
Masterton A and P Show 16 February 2019
