Discover family-friendly hotels in South Wairarapa District, New Zealand

Named after its lake and translating from Maori as Glistening Waters, it’s in the grape department that the Wairarapa really shines. Pinot noir and a postcard-inspiring village green draw you to Martinborough’s eateries and pubs, while beautifully restored Victorian buildings make boutiquey Greytown beguiling. Featherston and Carterton exude country charm and hardware shops and farm supplies in Masterton exemplify the region’s heritage. Surrender to the laid-back pace of this south-eastern stretch of the North Island and explore world-class wineries and history-steeped towns as unhurriedly as you like.
