Our cottages are set in stunning subtropical gardens with views across Norfolk’s famous green pastures towards Mount Pitt, the highest point of the island.
Trade Winds is an ideal place to escape for that romantic getaway. Or, if you prefer, with four self-contained cottages, each with two huge bedrooms both with ensuites, our cottages are also the perfect place for small groups, or extended family holidays.
We are a family-owned and operated business so you can be certain we will go that extra mile to ensure your comfort during your stay.
The cottage names
The cottages are named after some of the Pitcairn descendants who arrived on Norfolk Island on 8 June 1856. This day is now celebrated each year as Anniversary Day, or Bounty Day.
Thirty-year-old Samuel McCoy, son of Daniel McCoy and Sarah Quintal, left Pitcairn in 1856, disembarking the Morayshire at Norfolk Island on 8 June.
Like other Pitcairn settlers, he was granted 50 acres of land. Part of his holding makes up the flat area directly in front of the Trade Winds Country Cottages.
Samuel McCoy struck farming gold, with this area of the island highly regarded for its rich, deep loam soil, allowing him and his descendants to become successful farmers.
Phoebe Adams, a sickly baby, was the oldest of the five babies born on Pitcairn Island in 1856. Her parents were reluctant to leave their island home with the rest of the Pitcairn settlers, worried that she may die on the long voyage. However, eventually they changed their minds with the Adams family setting sail on the Morayshire on 2 May 1956. After an arduous five weeks at sea, with everyone suffering from sea sickness, they arrived at Norfolk Island. Phoebe, just a tiny baby, survived the trip, but sadly died six days after landing.
Dinah Quintal was born to John Adams, the last surviving mutineer from the Bounty, and his Tahitian wife, Vahineatua. Dinah married Edward Quintal and together they had five children. Along with Betsy Young, she was one of the elders to arrive on Norfolk Island in 1856.
Betsy Young was the first female born on Pitcairn Island. She married Matthew Quintal II and gave birth to two boys before she was widowed. Betsy then married William Young. Sadly, they lost their first son. She was the oldest person out of the 194 passengers travelling to Norfolk Island aboard the Morayshire. She missed her Pitcairn Island home so much that she returned there to live in 1863, some seven years later.
