About this Holiday House

NEWLY REFURBISHED. Originally a Woolshed in Martinborough's picturesque Dry River Valley, it has been converted with a modern contemporary feel inside while retaining its original façade outside. Open plan living, beautiful views and three gorgeous bedrooms, there is a feeling of space and tranquility all while enjoying the warmth of a cosy woodburner fire. Dry River Retreat is a relaxing getaway - offering the best of both worlds, it is a uniquely serene and tranquil retreat with the feeling of being a world away and yet less than 10 minutes drive to the Martinborough village. The open plan space has a full kitchen, dining and lounge with French Doors and windows bringing the outside in. Bedroom 1 and 2 have King beds and Bedroom 3 is on the lovely Mezzanine floor with a SuperKing split (it is made up as 2 singles unless requested). There is a full bathroom and laundry. Outside you can take advantage of the beautiful gardens, relax in the fabulous Spa with stunning views down the valley and the spectacular surrounding countryside. Please note that there is no cell phone coverage.

Absolutely beautiful home. Spotless and beautifully decorated. Jenny left us milk, bread, juice and biscuits which was a lovely surprise. The view from the back of the house looking from the garden to the fields beyond make you feel you are in the middle of nowhere. Yet Martinborough is only a 10 min drive away. I hope to return soon!
We loved how relaxing the location was, the rural setting and garden were so peaceful. The outdoor bath was great - a perfect spot to enjoy a late evening glass of wine while listening to the call of the moreporks. The kitchen was well equipped and we also cooked outdoors on the bbq and dined al fresco under the leafy trees in the garden. Beds were really comfortable with beautiful linen bedding. It's only a short drive from Martinborough and a few wineries are just down the road. The Woolshed would make a great getaway location in either summer or winter and we definitely plan to return. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful week in this quiet barn. It is fantastic furnished an we felt really at home. We loved the fantastic garden around. One of the best was to observe the kingfishers in front of the terrace. Thank you Jenny and Nigel. Cheers, Carolin and Matthias Braunschweig, Germany
