Judge and Jury Cottage, Queenstown & Our Competition!!

We are just home from an amazing stay at the gorgeous Judge and Jury Cottage on Charm Farm Winery, just outside Queenstown, NZ.  What an amazing place to stay!

An exhilarating 2km drive up a windy dirt road, with sheer drops off to the Gorge below, this drive is not for those afraid of heights.  Surprisingly the drive did seem much shorter by the end of our stay!  The road is used by visitors to the lovely Charm Farm Vineyard which is open every day to the public.

The Judge and Jury cottage is perched above the estate overlooking the vineyard and winery, down to the Gorge and then over to the Crown Range and Coronet Peak, which provides stunning sunsets daily.

We have stayed in Queenstown many times over the last 8 years and I can say without a doubt that this is the best place we have stayed yet.  Quiet, peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle of Queenstown, yet only a short drive to both pretty Arrowtown and the centre of Queenstown.

3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with spacious living areas, your own private grassy yard and fabulous outdoor bbq/fireplace, perfect for roasting marshmellows on a cold winter's night.

The cottage provides all basic cooking ingredients, free wifi, great phone reception and the hosts were only a phone call away.   Heating was just perfect and beds were lovely and cosy!

You will also find a great reading selection, games and even wii to keep the children entertained.

We would highly recommend Judge and Jury to anyone thinking of visiting this amazing part of the world.

In fact we loved it so much, we have already booked to go back in August!
