This rustic little 1800's cottage is set on an 1800 acre sheep and beef station, 25mins east of Martinborough and only 16km from the Pahaoa Coast. It has a lawn tennis court and great sandpit for the children. Guests are welcome to enjoy a walk on the farm, where there are animals to feed especially around springtime. The river is nice and close complete with a lovely swimming hole. There is also seasonal fruit available, and our water is sourced from a natural spring.

We also offer guided hunts for both wild pigs and deer. Please enquire for more details.

We also have Aotea Homestead which sleeps 11. Please see our other listing.

  • I love staying in this simple cottage

    I love staying in this simple cottage. It's situated in the heart of beautiful countryside - a lovely, scenic drive from Martinborough. Very hospitable owners who are close by if you need them. Loved my walks across the farm and visiting Martinborough each day for an outing. No coverage - fantastic! I read two and a half books instead and slept heaps. Aotea Cottage is good value and I intend to visit again soon.

  • Great little rustic bach

    Great little rustic bach. We loved being away from it all, with no reception or internet. Loved the slightly wonky floors, and the feeling of living in a little slice of history. Comfy beds and cosy lounge area. A few little changes would be nice - some more relaxed outdoor seating for out the front, a lamp in the second bedroom. We had a great weekend away. Thanks very much!
