Picture yourself returning home from a day tasting award-winning Pinot Noir, cooking up a gourmet pizza outdoors, or settling in for an evening next to the fire. Welcome to Balham Cottage, Martinborough.

Martinborough is packed with charm, and so is Balham Cottage. The external facade invites you in through the porch, a good place to enjoy a morning coffee. Step inside to a well-presented retreat, tastefully decorated with modern furnishings while still retaining pops of history.

Kept cosy and warm thanks to a wood burning fireplace, the living room has a relaxing feel. It is perfect for stretching out with a book or enjoying time with family and friends. A Smart TV offers entertainment options for everyone, and complimentary WIFI means you can stay connected all getaway long.

The well-equipped kitchen and dining area are perfect for entertaining. A large table and breakfast bar offer both formal and casual dining options, and there is good indoor/outdoor flow via the bifold doors to the back deck.

Three bedrooms and two modern bathrooms offer flexible options for your stay.

On a summer getaway, the large outdoor area might be where you spend most of your time, and the deck with its tranquil lounge setting is just the beginning. The spacious garden is great for lawn games and conversation around the outdoor fire. The focal point is the central patio with a BBQ, pizza oven, and ample alfresco dining space.

At Balham Cottage you’re just a 10-minute walk to the village square where you’ll find cafes, restaurants, shops and even a boutique cinema. Further afield you’ve got over 20 wineries to choose from, most within cycling and walking distance; just pick up a map from the local visitors centre and you’re off!

Balham Cottage offers the quintessential Martinborough experience. Make it your home away from home.

Great location and value for money.

Stayed July 2021

Nice clean house with everything we needed. It would be lovely in Summer too, with lots of all day sun. Good quality fittings, and a great wood burner. Very short walk to Martinborough square.

Stayed April 2021

Lovely property quiet ample parking off street and lovely garden area..

Stayed January 2021

A great property for a stay. We had 3 couples, plenty of room in the bedrooms and outside to sit had the weather been nice. We struck a rough few days unfortunately. It is only a 12 minute walk to the square and shops so very convenient. The fruit trees were great, especially the plums 🙂.

Stayed October 2020

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ballham Cottage. The beds were incredibly comfortable, and we loved the spacious bathrooms. The outside area was a great spot to relax with a platter and wine. We would definitely recommend to others.
