  • A true getaway from hectic everyday life

Just 30 minutes east of Martinborough - the wine centre of the Wairarapa, Longspur Eco Cottage is surrounded by bush in a secluded and peaceful spot. You're guaranteed privacy with no dusty road or nosy neighbours nearby.

Recently renovated with sustainable principles in mind our eco friendly cottage ensures a holiday in comfort with minimal impact on the environment. We create our own power via solar, collect rain water and supply hot water instantly heated by gas. Cooking is easy in the fully self contained kitchen using gas hobs/oven or the hooded BBQ outside on the deck.

Native bush walks throughout the property are available for the more energetic to be rewarded with stunning panoramic rural views rolling out to the sea in the distance. Enjoy the many unique species of birds - Tui's flittering past, the different calls of the Bell Bird, and Moreporks at night. Take advantage of the many photo opportunities or simply chill out on the deck with a drink of your choice on hand.

A perfect retreat for a couple in need of special time together - honeymoon/anniversary.

Well suited to a family that wishes to get back to basics - without technology creates the time to talk and laugh. Play a board game, flick through the wide range of magazines and books or colour in together.

Comfortably sleeps up to eight people if you don't mind a close and cosy stay with your mates.

Special conditions: No telephone or cellphone reception or internet access. Sorry no hunting available Pets no longer welcome

  • What a fantastic little cottage that oozed charm and character

    What a fantastic little cottage that oozed charm and character. Simple with everything we needed, surrounded with views and walks and streams, with honey bees to add a little excitement.

  • Our weekend away at Longspur Eco Cottage was exactly what we needed,...

    Our weekend away at Longspur Eco Cottage was exactly what we needed, being cut off from the constant buzz of the city left us feeling refreshed and wishing we had stayed a few extra days longer. The hike up to Rocky Knob is well worth the view (we even saw a deer). Plenty of rarely seen native birds around. Be aware that there is no cell phone coverage and that there are no shops after you leave Martinborough to pick up food etc. Bring Ice for the icebox to keep your beer/wine cold.

    This place was a fantastic little find! The cabin is wonderfully fitted out. It was the perfect mix of bush and luxury! We had a fantastic time exploring the area, and can't wait to get back :)
