The Shearer's Quarters is a fully equipped, modern, funky holiday home in the fabulous vineyard setting of StoneCutter Winery and Vineyard. The house can be rented as a holiday home, or for a small events, birthdays, weddings, or a combination of both.
If renting as a holiday home, complimentary breakfast supplies consisting of our own free range eggs, bacon, bread, milk, butter, jam, nespresso coffee, and Twinnings teas are supplied for your first morning. A complimentary bottle of StoneCutter Wine is waiting for you and your first evening.

The home has the charm of yester-year, and is fully equipped for a comfortable, relaxing stay. The bi-fold doors open wide from the house towards the views, sun and the gorgeous, super-sized deck and the expansive grassy garden beyond - plenty of space for the children to play.

Free WIFI, SKY TV and surround sound DVD system should keep your evenings entertained after a dinner in one of the local Martinborough restaurants. Inside the native wooden floors and white walls provide a Scandinavian/Kiwi feel with a new granite bench top kitchen, with all the kitchen mod cons. There is also a cozy wood burner. Three comfortable queen sized bedrooms with one double sofa bed are at your disposal. The bathroom has an old claw-foot bath and shower for that long awaited soak.

The home gives your family and friends a chance to relax and unwind in a vineyard setting with stunning views to the mountains and hills beyond. Step out onto the deck to enjoy a morning coffee, then later in the day, a glass of StoneCutter Pinot Noir or Pinot Gris.

We also own Dara Cottage (sleeps 6 people), across the road, so if you need a second property to meet your groups needs, contact me.
