Butterscotch Cottage is a completely self-contained three bedroom character cottage situated within an easy walk to restaurants, shops and the local cinema right in the heart of Martinborough in South Wairarapa.
Spacious and sunny, with wrap around verandas, Butterscotch Cottage offers comfortable accommodation for up to six guests. It is also a perfect romantic retreat for a couple. It is quiet, private and comfortable.
The master bedroom features a four poster bed and has an ensuite with a clawfoot bath with shower, handbasin and toilet. The other queen bedroom has french doors opening onto the veranda, with views to the garden. The third bedroom has twin beds. The bathroom has a wet floor shower and there is a separate toilet.
The woodburner is very efficient and the cottage is warm in winter.
Continental breakfast is supplied, with a choice of cereals, toast, milk, a range of teas and plunger coffee. The pantry is stocked with basic condiments and toast spreads, including home-made jam, sauces and chutney, made from organic/spray-free produce when available, for our guests to enjoy during their stay.
Seasonally we have homemade crab-apple jelly, lemon curd, quince jelly, tamarillo chutney, feijoa and date chutney, nectarine chutney (made from Butterscotch Cottage's nectarine tree), crab-apple and chilli jelly (great with cheese) and a cranberry relish (lovely with brie cheese, chicken or ham).
There are fresh herbs including rosemary, sage, mint, lemon bergamot (use the leaves to make a refreshing tea), hyssop and lemon thyme, and in summer you may find raspberries and wild strawberries to pick in the cottage garden.
The well appointed kitchen is modern and includes a dishwasher, and microwave.
