Welcome to New Zealand at its Best

“Congratulations on publishing the 2015-16 edition of Organic Explorer. 

The book is a terrific collection of New Zealand eco travel experiences ranging from well-known major operators to hidden gems throughout the country.

It’ll be a great travel companion for anyone exploring New Zealand and wanting to hunt out the best eco experiences on offer. 

I wish you every success with your book”.

View the picturesque scenes of the Taieri Plains and surrounding hills from your covered verandah; enjoy a “country quiet” nights sleep in our deliciously comfortable beds.  Being only four kms from the restaurants and cafes, you could dine out in a different place every night.  Or as each cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, you could create your own favourites and dine on the deck enjoying a fine Otago wine as you watch the sun slip slowly behind the hills.

Barbecues and picnics are always a family favourite at the Lodge, along with outdoor chess, chequers and petanque.  We are dog friendly, and "Willow Meadow" has been created especially for dogs to run around the trees safely in a full fenced area.

At Longbourne Lodge we like to think globally and act locally, so each cottage is passive solar designed, and features double glazing and solar hot water.  We offer rain collected filtered drinking water and the waste water is reticulated for the gardens.

So why not spoil yourself and experience genuine rural NZ hospitality at a genuinely affordable Kiwi price?  We’d love to meet you.
