Lorraine and Stu, Alison and Graeme Duncan welcome you to Wedderburn Cottages' accommodation based in the Maniototo, in the heart of Central Otago. We have a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets, with the quality and standard of our service recognised to be at the top level.
The Duncan family, a fourth generation Central Otago farming family, welcomes you to Wedderburn Cottages. Come and enjoy our rural farming lifestyle and experience this amazing part of New Zealand. This is where rural landscapes and historic villages are part of your Rail Trail experience.
Wedderburn is steeped in history; your stay at Wedderburn Cottages provides a chance to explore our heritage and the rural farming lifestyle of Central Otago.
Wedderburn Cottages have been operating since the inception of the Rail Trail, and are perfectly placed at the exact halfway point, with the actual Rail Trail going through the centre of the complex.
We provide accommodation for individuals and groups riding the Rail Trail as well as tourists or families driving through this wonderful landscape.
Wedderburn Cottages offers Rail Trail accommodation and hospitality at its best, ranging from the comfortable 1928 farm homestead lodge to attractive self-contained cottages, both ideal for homestay or farmstay type accommodation.
We have recently been featured on Hyundai Country Calendar and can provide farm excursions by request if you are part of a tour. These excursions include a 20km bus trip to see the workings of a sheep and cattle farm. You will see a sophisticated irrigation system, farm vehicles, livestock and afternoon tea in a working woolshed.
We are situated right on the Central Otago Rail Trail with direct access from the trail itself. Nestled under the Hawkdun Range and surrounded by stunning landscape of farmland and tussock country, Wedderburn Cottages is a must-stay after a long day.
We offer accommodation to groups of all sizes whether Rail Trail related or not. We look forward to hearing from you. We have our very own dedicated webcam and weather station right here at the Red Shed. Check out conditions on the trail and view different angles up and down the valley.
Rooms start from as low as $40pp for a miner's cabin, $60pp for the lodge or $85pp for a self-contained cottage. Call us now on 03 444 9194 or 027 268 9194 for more information or book online.
