Longbush Cottage

Longbush Cottage

Longbush Cottage is a modern cottage garden, comprising a series of rooms each with a different but complementing theme radiating out from a classic 19th century cottage, that leads the eye up an avenue of Totara to a large body of water. Longbush Cottage has been awarded a prestigious four-star Garden of Significance rating from the NZ Gardens Trust, acknowledging the quality of the garden and the visitor experience when visiting there.  

The Longbush Cottage garden tour, open by appointment from September to April, begins with the white garden which is a mass of white flowers and silver foliage, in front of the cottage. This leads on to the cottage garden which is a riot of pinks and purples. There is a dedicated cutting garden and large vegetable plot.

They also have a selection of their favourite plants for sale in the small nursery

Although the garden began in 2016 there is already so much to see and inspire. New areas are continuously in development, meaning you can see them in their early years and then watch them grow in the years to come.

Longbush cottage is open by appointment from September to April at a cost of $10 per person for a self-guided tour or $15 per person for a guided tour.
