Peppers Parehua Martinborough is set within a beautiful environment framed by a stunning backdrop of rural landscape distinctive of the South Wairarapa. Native trees & flaxes have been planted throughout the estate and established Willows and flora surround our private lake – which is home to our resident duck family above and eel family below.
