Special Amenities

Private standalone cottage with own access and plenty of parking. Beautiful views over the native reserve valley with a bush walk to the rocky bottom stream and picnic area. Quiet surroundings, two private side-by-side outdoor baths, with lots of fruit trees and an option to add a basket of hand-picked local breakfast or picnic provisions for $30 (enough for two people). PETS: We are generally happy to host well behaved dogs at the Orchard Cottage, please provide details at the time of booking and wait for confirmation. Please note the property is not fully fenced and it is expected that pets stay close to the cottage. If walking the bush track, dogs must stay on the track provided or on a lead. Inside the Cottage we ask that they stay off the furniture and out of the bedroom. It is expected they will also have their own bed or crate to sleep in. Please clean up after your dog, a separate dog bin is provided. Ben is our resident Border Collie X, he is very accustomed to receiving visiting dogs and will generally leave guests and their owners to enjoy their stay.

Margarita Godman
The cottage is cosy and beautifully decorated with a nice view over the bush from the lounge. It was such a peaceful weekend away. We are also very appreciative that Justine allowed us to bring our precious four legged family member with us. Such a bonus for us dogs lovers.
