Shortlands Tinyhouse

Naseby, Central Otago

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.

Shortlands Tinyhouse is the latest glamping accommodation on Shortlands Station, following original 'sheds' Manuka View and Nobbler Creek which are on a different part of the large station property.

Shortlands Tinyhouse is located on the site of the original Mowat Homestead and looks straight towards Mt. Kyeburn in the Danseys Pass. In the winter these dramatic peaks are covered in snow. To the left of the tiny house are the beautiful Kyeburn Diggings Clay Cliffs.

The tiny house is perfect for a family of four, with cosy indoor sleeping and a small seating area. Outside is an outdoor, semi-covered kitchen and comfortable seating area - a great way to connect with the stunning Central Otago countryside.

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

A cedar wood-fired hot tub sits in a prime position to take in the spectacular views - and serene atmosphere of nearby sheep grazing the surrounding countryside. At night, the view of the night sky and stars is amazing.

Shortlands Station is the ultimate, restful glamping location. Enjoy the unbelievable peace and tranquillity - with the only interruption being the comforting sound of the odd sheep baaaing nearby.
