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

Bonnieux Cottage is a lovely place to stay, just home after 3 lovely nights in Martinborough, the cottage is full of old world charm with all the mod cons you require for a wonderful relaxing stay. Owner was great with communication and very helpful with any questions about things to do and see. Hope to come back real soon :)

We had a wonderful time at Bonnieux Cottage. The house itself is gorgeous and quaint with a lovely fireplace and everything you need. Matthew was an incredible host - he kindly organised a bottle of bubbly for us to have on arrival, and the plentiful stocks of breakfast food was really appreciated. I look forward to returning in the summer so that we can use the lovely outside area!
