Shortlands Shed, Nobbler Creek

Naseby, Central Otago

** Note for bookings during June/July/August. You must have your own 4WD ute or truck to access Shortland Station (SUVs or Subaru type cars are not adequate). There can be snow on the property and in the region affecting access**

Shortlands Station is a 15,000-acre working high country sheep station, less than 2 hours from Dunedin and just under 2 1/2 hours from Queenstown.

'Nobbler's Creek' is the second glamping shed on Shortlands Station, along with sister shed, 'Manuka Views'. 

Nobbler's Creek shed sits on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the creek with stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding hill country. It's fully enclosed - with large glass doors that open wide in the summer or provide welcome shelter for snug winter days and nights.

The interior is stylish, moody, and oozing with atmosphere. Both rooms - a luxurious double bedroom, and a separate living/kitchen area are perfectly positioned to maximise the views.

Outside, comfortable outdoor furniture and a cedar wood-fired hot tub are the perfect places to take in the high country vibe and stargaze 

Shortlands Station is the ultimate, peaceful glamping location. Enjoy the tranquil sounds of the creek, the birds, and the unbelievable quiet - with the only interruption being the comforting sound of the odd sheep baaaing nearby.

FROM $310 p/n

  • Sleeps 2

Note: in June/July/August you MUST have your own 4WD truck or ute (SUVs or Subaru style not adequate) to access Shortland Station.
