Welcome to

Longbush Cottage


The Garden

Longbush Cottage is a modern cottage garden set in the beautiful Wairarapa, New Zealand.

The garden comprises a series of rooms each with a different but complementing theme radiating out from a classic 19th century cottage which leads the eye up an avenue of Totora to a large body of water.

Although the garden began in 2016 there is already 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.
