Laurella Cottage is a luxuriously appointed and fully self contained, guest cottage, nestled into the nationally recognised, private gardens of Upton Oaks.
With a botanical interior theme throughout, fitting for its garden location, with attention to detail at every turn, this is the perfect place to just relax and enjoy the ambience or to use as a base to explore nearby attractions.
Situated right in the heart of Marlborough's wine region, only 10 minutes to the airport, town and wineries.
Laurella is the only restored and refurbished historic cottage in Marlborough, situated in a Garden of National Significance, each room has garden views to enjoy.
Provided is a BBQ for guests use with outdoor dining furniture in the private courtyard, the perfect place for alfresco dining.
We encourage our guests to take a wander and explore the gardens, or maybe enjoy some relaxation in a hammock, in the rustic olive grove. Or perhaps a glass of local wine into one of the many seats in the garden or watching the white fantail pigeons.
Guests have their own private driveway, parking and access with private gardens to enjoy.
We always greet our guests on arrival and are then available if needed for any advice, recommendations or to help with any issues that may arise.
We are both avid gardeners and love living in sunny Marlborough.
With a love for historic character homes, and with Daves passion for restoration and furniture design, and Sues passion for garden design and all things interior, we have relished doing the full refurbishment of Laurella Cottage, which we have now opened for guests to enjoy.
We host visitors to the gardens from all over the world and look forward to welcoming guests to the enjoy the ambience of the cottage, in its own special place in the gardens.
