About this Holiday House

If the idea of no ringing phones, no email alerts and no constant knocks on the door appeals to you, then this is sure to take your fancy... Just a 35 minute drive from Martinborough - the wine centre of the Wairarapa, 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 create our own power via solar and plenty of instant hot water is supplied by gas. Cooking is easy in the self contained kitchen using the gas hobs/oven or hooded BBQ outside on the deck. 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 your choice of drink on hand. A perfect retreat for a couple in need of special time together - honeymoon/anniversaries. Well suited to a family 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 king 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, unflexible guests oh and drunk guests Tucked in a corner of the main room is a double fold out sofa bed. We take pride in our high cleaning standard but due to COVID-19 we've enhanced our cleaning routine and avoiding back to back bookings to keep you safe.

Great bush walks and 5 mins to beach
Leah Mcneil
A great wee cabin in the heart of the bush for some time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The house was clean and comfy and had all we needed for our weekend away. We did the loop walk up behind the house and were rewarded with superb views! Highly recommend.
Super cute cosy cottage in the bush with heaps of character! Really comfortable bedding and beds. Everything was spotless and the bathroom was well stocked. We loved all the thoughtful touches like books, magazines, games and puzzles. The walk up to Rocky Knob is a great activity to do, especially for the amazing views. Only 5 minutes drive down to the Tora Coast. Great communication! Loved it and will definitely be back.
