Little River Cottage sits in the tranquil Huka Huka Toroa Reserve, the largest private covenant on banks peninsula. Sit on the verandah and lose yourself in the wonderful sound of the flowing stream and the sound of native birds in song.

Little river is the gateway to the peninsula, it's success lies in the secret valleys in its surrounds which entice people to come again and again, it's close proximity to the beautiful seaside town of Akaroa make it a great place to stay. The very popular little river rail trail finishes in the township and for the more adventurous the double fence line mountain bike trail is easily accessed from the little river cottage this means you can ride your heart out. Annual events like the Peninsula to Plate at the A&P show and the giant pumpkin festival draw people from all around the world. The township itself features an historic railway station home to the craft station cooperative which sells local produce, art and crafts there is also an internationally recognised art galley, cafe, store.

Special conditions: We love little river and expect our guests to fall in love with it too, our little slice of paradise is here to share and our expectation is that you will treat it with respect. Because we live in protected bushland we are always extremely cautious of fire, so please be vigilant. Absolutely no smoking inside the cabin. If you get out of hand I'll let you know.

    Very hard to rate as it is quite different to what you would expect, tranquil, set in bush next to running stream, peaceful, off the track yet 10 minutes away from local town, my wife & I loved it, the cottage was perfect & clean, wish I had ordered the breakfast, next time !
