This winemaker’s cottage has the charm of yesteryear with the fusion of comforts you would wish for to create a very special and memorable rural escape. Casual, charming in style and deeply comfortable, staying at Scarborough Cottage is an opportunity to relax, take a breath and feel at ease as you and your guests enjoy the beauty that only nature and the wide-open space can give.
