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 30 minute drive from 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 close by. 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 and plenty of instant hot water is supplied by gas. Cooking is easy in the fully 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 to witness 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 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 creates the 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. Tucked in a corner of the main room is a comfy and large fold out sofa bed.

Quiet and secluded with an amazing outlook. Did the Tora explorer - a tramp not for the faint hearted but glad we conquered as it gave great views of the area. If you want a sneak away with your partner for peace or take your kids away from wifi, this is the place you need to go!
Fabulous couple of days spent at Longspur. Completed the Tora Challenge! Highly recommend to those who want to get away from the city and enjoy nature at its best. Look forward to returning in the future.
We had an awesome weekend over at Tora staying at Longspur. All the facilities you need, very well set-up - nice and cosy. Great location as close to the water but still nice and private. The owners were most helpful with clear communication and information which was most appreciated. We'll be back! :)
