About this cottage

Purpose-built in August 2020, this modern cottage combines warmth, comfort and coziness with a stunning rural setting. Set on 8.5 acres of rolling farmland with large mature trees for privacy. With only a few friendly sheep as neighbours, this is your chance to unwind and relax and enjoy the seclusion.

Peaceful and cozy. Wildberry is a Scandinavian-inspired cottage. Nestled under a tree on the top of a hill, large windows and a spacious deck give you views overlooking the surrounding farm. The sunsets are amazing and the afternoon sun will bathe you in warmth. At night you can look down on the city lights of Rotorua.

Wildberry is the ultimate year-round rural escape for couples. Choose to hunker down and get some much-needed rest and relaxation or get out and about to explore the region. Indulge in a romantic retreat with fluffy towels, crisp sheets on a plush king bed, relaxing together with long soaks in the outdoor bath as the stars come out.

The cottage has a wood fire for extra warmth and coziness and a heatpump. Everything is new, bright and clean. There is a TV and Internet/WiFi. The modern kitchen is well stocked with most cooking essentials including an oven, microwave, stove top, fridge and freezer. There is an espresso maker, tea kettle, various coffee pots, coffee bean grinder, dishes, pots and pans. Scattered throughout are items we picked up in Finland, Sweden and Norway.

Brand-new bed linens, blankets and towels are provided for the Sleepyhead king-sized bed. The bathroom features a spacious tiled shower, hairdryer and underfloor heating. There is a laundry with washer and drier.

The Farm

Feel free to walk around the farm. You can feed the sheep and cattle by hand – they love apples. They are friendly and curious. Let us now if you'd like to collect farm-fresh eggs for yourself. There are fruit trees galore surrounding the cabin feel free to pick your own berries, apples, plums, pears and citrus when they are in season.

Arriving and Guest Access

You can drive right up to the cabin so no walking is required. The key is in a lockbox, so you can arrive anytime. We are available by text/email or phone during your stay if there are any questions.


Wildberry Cottage is nestled in the hills above Hamurana with small farms around. Rotorua is a short 12 minute trip. The village of Ngongotaha is 8 minutes drive away and has a small grocery store, liquor store and takeaways. Tauranga and Mt Maunganui beaches are only 40 minutes away and you can go underground in Hobbiton - just 50 minutes away.


One of NZ's most popular destinations, Rotorua is a region rich with beautiful landscapes, lakes, forests and geothermal wonderlands. Whether you choose to relax and unwind at one of Rotorua’s spas, seek thrilling adventure activities, or experience and learn about Maori Culture, you will be spoilt for choice in Rotorua.

Other things to note

We have two farm dogs - who simply love people. They may come and visit you. Hazel loves people and is happy to have cuddles. Ruby is obsessed with her tennis ball and she may turn up begging for you to play with her. Please let us know if you are not comfortable with dogs.

The hens are free range and they may come and visit Wildberry Cottage – please do not let them inside.
