Stay among the vines!

Dara Cottage is a fully equipped holiday home in the middle of a pinot noir vineyard, and next to some great winery experiences.

The home is a colonial style cottage with wood features inside. It has a west facing deck for afternoon drinks and BBQ, as well as a large private garden. A north facing sheltered porch is just the place for morning coffee while taking in the view.

The cottage is perfect for that weekend get away on a vineyard and has beautiful views over our vineyard to the hills beyond.

Complimentary breakfast supplies consisting of our own free range eggs, bacon, bread, milk, butter, jam, plunger coffee, and Twinnings teas are supplied for your first morning.

Freeview TV and a chromecast will provide evening entertainment as well as the odd jigsaw puzzle and board game. The kitchen is well equipped for six people and there is also a cozy wood burner for winter.

Free wifi and great cellular coverage.

"A private and peaceful location amongst the vines and orchard, when we visited over Easter. One of the cleanest, best presented, and equiped stays we have had and highly recommended." - 5/5 Don - April 2023

"A truly wonderful spot to stay - peaceful, calm, yet only a few minutes walk to vineyards and a less than thirty mins into the village. We loved the thoughtful touches throughout our time staying, and look forward to coming back!" 5/5 Christy - January 2023

"What an ideal place for 3 ladies to enjoy. Spacious rooms, clean and so well equipped. We did not want for anything. The owner provided us with bacon, fresh eggs, toast, milk and most importantly, ice! Lovely location close to many wineries. Owner personally welcomed us with information on the area plus his dog Moko visited us nightly. Loved it. Highly recommend." 5/5 - Judi January 2023
