Lovely contained 1 bedroom house on a large section with a cute garden.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely contained 1 bedroom house on a large section with a cute garden. We enjoyed the outdoor patio/living space. The house itself had all the things needed for a weekend getaway - even a stocked kitchen! The only downside to the living space/lounge is the blinds don't block out view/sunlight from the outside in; the bedroom ones do. An easy 5-10 minute walk into the centre of Martinborough, so the location is also very convenient.

Would happily recommend and stay in again!
