Friends are important to us, together we fully renovated the little river cottage and with that comes an appreciation of interaction between people.


To us it doesn't matter if you stay one night or seven, the important thing is that you enjoy every moment.


Our commitment to conservation

Little river cottage is based at the start of the Huka Huka Toroa reserve, we are part of one of the largest private covenants on Banks Peninsula. We are proud of this and it's also the reason why we built LRCottage, you will have the opportunity to stay with us and experience the wonderful native bush and wildlife which is quite literally on your door step.

Conservation Covenants

Conservation Covenants are a voluntary method to maintain and protect landscape values, biodiversity and sustainable land management on Banks Peninsula. They are a legal agreement that protects a piece of land for a fixed term or in perpetuity.

A Conservation Covenant is offered to landowners who wish to protect special areas on Banks Peninsula. The Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust can assist landowners in voluntary covenanting by applying on their behalf to funding agencies to secure finances for fencing, surveying and other costs.

The Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust has been covenanting land on Banks Peninsula since 2001. The Trust has an excellent working relationship with landowners who wish to protect biodiversity and leave a legacy for future generations. To date the Trust has 50 registered covenants totalling 540ha.

A Covenant enables a landowner to protect special areas on their property into the future. Fencing these natural areas allows for appropriate management of grazing animals and for the covenant to naturally regenerate.
