About this Holiday House

A scenic 35 minute drive from Martinborough, Longspur Eco Cottage is surrounded by regenerating native bush in a secluded and peaceful spot. You're guaranteed privacy with no dusty road or neighbours close by. Renovated with sustainable principles in mind our eco friendly cottage ensures a holiday in comfort with minimal impact on the environment. We source our power via solar and plenty of instant hot water is supplied by gas. Cooking is simple in the self contained kitchen using a full gas oven and hobs. Native bush walks throughout the property are available for the more energetic, up to see 360 degree 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 Morepork's at night. Take advantage of the endless photo opportunities or simply relax on the deck with a good book and favourite beverage. A perfect retreat for a couple looking for privacy to celebrate a meaningful time together. And suited to families that wishes to get back to basics - without technology leaves time to talk and laugh. Play a board game, flick through the wide range of magazines and books or colour in together. Sleeping arrangements are... One bedroom containing a queen size bed - at the end of this a single divan bed and above this the option of a fold down bunk style bed. Climb up the ladder into a small, light and airy loft which contains 2 foam mattresses which you can arrange as you need. Please note the loft isn’t suitable for small children, guests with a fear of heights, inflexible guests oh and after a few alcoholic drinks.

Our third memorable stay. Stew has done a great job of tending the trail! A relaxing, private and wonderful way to escape urban life! Will be back for another stay.

Great little spot for a quiet weekend away. Very clean, tidy, and well stocked with everything you need. A couple of walking tracks on the property and only a few minutes from Tora beach, there is lots to do should you need to get out and stretch your legs.
