My mother booked me and six girlfriends in to spend my 40th birthday as a surprise. We spent most of the day on Friday at the spa; the staff were fabulous and very accommodating, not to mention entertaining. Mum had booked a two bedroom cottage and a four bedroom cottage; the cottages were really spacious and each one had a... More

We last visited in 2010. The cottages are well appointed with great facilities, friendly staff and very comfortable. It's located around 7 mins drive to Martinborough so a bit of a walk for dinner if you don't want to drive. But thoroughly recommended. We also visited the Spa...staff were lovely and the treatments were very good. Would definitely return.

Stayed for one night with the husband to extend our Martinborough trip by an extra day - we loved Brackenridge, rooms, heated floors, spa and the fireplace was fantastic! We will definitely be back and in the cottages to stay with our pooch next time!

Stayed 1 night in studio and really enjoyed my stay. Modern unit in very nice countryside setting. Didn't use other facilities as didn't have time during short stay but the indoor pool did look nice and inviting. Nothing to complain about during my stay wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place to everyone.

My partner and I stayed in a two bedroom cottage and it was perfect. Id go back in a second. The cottage was spacious, the beds were comfortably - loved the featherdown duvet. Our favourite was the fireplace with unlimited firewood which warmed the place up. A very romantic place to visit.

Whenever we need to escape the hustle and busy of Wellington we head over to Brackenridge Country Retreat. You can't beat the place, it has everything there, you just take food and drinks and sit back and relax. Being self catering keeps costs down and enable us to light the fire and enjoy our stay. BBQ is provided so when... More

In February, stayed with others in a 2 bed cottage at this resort making it reasonably priced. Close to the lovely village of Martinborough and all the wineries, the area was peaceful and lovely. Walks in the countryside one can acknowledge the cows and sheep making it a retreat with a great rural feel. The cottage was well equipped, clean,... More

We stumbled upon this lovely little spa just outside the town. From our unit we could see the cows grazing at the fence but had privacy from our neighbours. The unit was high end with lots of luxury items. Worth visiting the pool and spa. The eggs for breakfast were delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
