Garden Cottage: From £67 per person per night
Little more than an hour by road from Wellington, over rolling hills and past scenic vineyard vistas, is the grand estate of Peppers Parehua Martinborough on the outskirts of this historic village. Stay as ‘guests of the estate’ in uniquely appointed cottages and villas overlooking the willow-fringed lake; each individually designed and loved. Idle over a good book in the Pavilion with its comfy sofas or take pre-dinner drinks in the open bar and be seated for dinner in the Pavillion restaurant, showcasing the finest wines and produce of the region. Alternatively you can step out to sample the eateries and boutiques of Martinborough, a delightful 10-minute stroll from your door.
