We went for my sons wedding the staff were very friendly and helpful. The retreat was better than we could have hoped for and close to Matinborough. We shared a four bedroom cottage with other family members they are large and inviting, even better with the sheep just at your back fence. The cottage was well looked after with plenty... More

Ww had the pleasure of staying over the weekend as a family group of 7 in a four bedroom cottage, WOW, just lovely, so relaxing, open fire, underfloor heating in bathrooms, and thee most gorgeous comfy beds. So cool looking out the back door to the cows in the paddock! Cathy is the perfect hostess and nothing is any trouble,... More

Offers a variety of size and style of accommodation. The cottage (where we stayed) was well-maintained and very well-equipped, cleaned and restocked daily. The staff are friendly and helpful (arranging a birthday cake for one of us who celebrated a birthday while staying there). The spa pool, lap pool and gym are excellent facilities, although under 16s not permitted to... More

I have stayed at Brackenridge several times - it is to date my favourite weekend getaway. We have also stayed here over Christmas and the whole extended family loved the experience so much that we now plan to spend every second Christmas here! Every time we drive through the entrance gates I feel like I'm back where I belong -... More

I got taken there for a surprise birthday weekend with my son, daughter in law and toddler, husband and sister in law - wow what a place. The cottages are beautifully set out in the country atmosphere with sheep over the back fence. There were two bedrooms and bathrooms with a fully equipped kitchen, grill and best of all -... More

Beautiful cottages, warm cosy and quiet. Wedding here at the same time but rarely new as we were put further away. Everything here you need too with Martinbourough only two min drive away and vineyards too. The open fire was a treat with wood box and cottage cleaned and restocked the next morning

I spent a week conducting seminars at Brackenridge. The location is very convenient for Wellington. The setting is just beautiful. The people could not be nicer. When I checked in, the receptionist said she knew I would be busy that week so, if I had any laundry to be done, she would get one of their employees to do it... More

This is a lovely venue and the accommodation is very nice with nice touches which make it very welcoming. We felt the prices were too high raising our expectations for a little more than we got. Breakfast was included but it was food in the fridge so very basic. The one comment we both made was an expectation of nice... More

We, a family of four, decided to go on a last minute day/night trip to Martinborough, on something of an impulse in the school holidays. First plus: we were offered a generous last-minute discount over the phone without asking for one! Second plus: each cottage is immaculate and very welcoming with heaters as well as a pre-stocked wood fire, which... More
