Contemporary Miner’s Cottage

The setting for Vigne Cottage is idyllic – it is in a superb, semi-rural location – with lovely views across our 25 acre home vineyard and valley landscape.

Vigne Cottage itself is a modern interpretation of the traditional NZ miner’s cottage from the late 1800’s – sourced from the 1880 Cottage Company in the Wairarapa. It complements the main residence on the vineyard, which is a beautiful early 1900’s villa.

Warm, sunny and private

The cottage is tastefully decorated – and is warm, sunny and private, with ample car parking. There are verandahs on which to sit and relax, and a private courtyard with BBQ to enjoy. It comes fully equipped – and provides 2 bedrooms – the main bedroom with a queen size bed and the second bedroom with two large single beds. It is ideal for up to 4 guests.

Other features of Vigne Cottage:

Fully equipped kitchen, with quality Fisher & Paykel appliances

Laundry facilities

Sky TV, DVD, Radio, CD player and a selection of magazines

Heat pump for those colder days and nights

Complimentary breakfast provisions provided for your first day of stay – as well as a bottle of wine from our award-winning vineyards


It is also very handily placed for guests to be able to enjoy all of the many varied activities that the Hawke’s Bay offers, being:

  • 5 minutes to the local store, country pub/restaurant and winery
  • 10 minutes to Taradale and the Mission Estate/Church Road wineries
  • 15 minutes from both Napier and Hastings

The cottage is close to the Tutaekuri River, which offers great trout fishing and scenic walks, and there are also many cycle trails nearby – including a section of the Hawke’s Bay Trails.
