About this Holiday House

Bonnieux Cottage (pronounced “bon yur”) Historic early Wairarapa cottage built in about 1878. Five minutes walk from Martinborough's Square and opposite one of the village’s earliest wooden churches. Three minutes walk from the town swimming pool. Fully self contained with three bedrooms and two bathrooms (one ensuite). Sleeps 5 in two queen bedrooms and a single bedroom. Wood panelled lounge and two attic rooms to explore and relax in. The cottage was added to in the early 1900s with a large open plan kitchen and dining room, plus a second sitting area and large bathroom. The cottage contains many original features including old totara and matai floors, wood paneling in the lounge and hallway, exposed wooden feature walls in the front bedrooms and a narrow, hand carved totara staircase. Decor and furnishings are all of high quality and add to the feeling of being in a beautifully restored, early New Zealand home. The kitchen includes microwave and a full range of crockery, cutlery, glassware, cookware, serving dishes and an espresso coffee machine. The dining table seats six. The lounge, kitchen and the main bedroom have widescreen TVs with Freeview and Sky TV, including movies and sport. The lounge also has a blu-ray DVD and an inbuilt woodburner. A heat pump looks after the temperature in the open plan kitchen-dining room. There's a CD player with bluetooth and radio in the dining room and bedside radios in the two queen bedrooms. The main bathroom has a clawfoot bath, toilet and separate shower. The ensuite bathroom has a shower and toilet. Other facilities include a washing machine, ironing board and iron, and heaters in every room. All beds have electric blankets and Egyptian cotton sheets. French doors from the dining room open onto a private sheltered deck with outside table, seating for six and a gas BBQ. This area is surrounded by jasmine and wisteria and is perfect for outdoor entertaining at most times of the year. Further outdoor areas include seats on the front verandah and a seating area at the back of the house with table and chairs. The gardens at the front and the back of the house are full of flowers and climbing roses. There is also a petanque court and a set of boules. Off-street parking. Smokefree. Continental breakfast supplies are included. Free Wi-FI is available throughout the cottage The narrow, steep stairs to the attic and the historic nature of the cottage might mean it is unsuitable for small children. Usual check-in and check-out times are 1.00 p.m. and 11.00 a.m. respectively. We prefer two night bookings at weekends. If Bonnieux Cottage is not available you can also stay next door at Lacoste Cottage. See HolidayHouses Ref # 11449

Anne Rayner
Great place to stay. Very roomy, bigger than we thought. Had all the comforts of home including proper tea, coffee and breakfast spreads. Along with books , dvds and puzzles made it very comfortable and easy to stay at. So handy to town a short stroll.
Cindy Cornelius
Absolutely gorgeous place to stay. So much bigger than it looks, very spacious. Every provision you could think of was there and all the little extra details were fantastic. It was an absolute delight to stay in. All four of us ladies wanted to live in it. A short walk to the town square, just perfect. Matthew was amazing with all his helpful hints and advice regarding the cottage and our stay in Martinborough. Would recommend to anyone.
Rick Hopkinson
One of the best stocked holiday homes we've ever stayed in. Great communication from owner and a perfect position to explore the wonderful Martinborough region. Some lovely authentic touches. Photos do not do this home justice.
