THE COTTAGE is a 2 bedroom 1930's recently refurbished cottage with a lounge/dining room,
comfortably and cosily appointed. It is well sound-proofed, allowing
for privacy and a good sleep-in despite all the farm noises that go on
from dawn. It contains a large master bedroom with a queen sized bed, and
a second bedroom with a bunk bed and trundle. The sofa in the lounge
room also serves as a double foldaway bed, thus comfortably catering for
The dining room, kitchen and lounge are surprisingly spacious and
open out onto a shady sun porch. The kitchen is adequately appointed and the building is easily
warmed with a slow combustion stove. Stove top and microwave is
available but no oven. All linen is supplied. The cottage stays
relatively cool in summer but there is a reverse cycle air conditioner
in the lounge room
for those occasional very hot days. There
is a TV/DVD facility.

a large American style wooden barn, recently clad interiorly. It has
a spacious new kitchen and bathroom, comfortable and large lounge, dining
for 12 people, slow combustion heater, and a piano. The large
downstairs area maintains a steady temperature in summer except in a long
hot spell. The kitchen has a gas stove top, microwave and a benchtop oven.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor with 2-3 single beds each.
The upstairs area which has a reverse cycle air conditioner has 3
curtained rooms with a queen-sized bed, a double bed and a single bed/lounge.
