Myall Cottage Home Stay

The welcoming fires and cosy snugness of Myall Cottage begins a journey into a rural past. This unique 3-bedroom cottage is surrounded only by paddocks and provides a pastoral view from every window.
The complete absence of TV, Internet and phone coverage is a true escape but it is still only a short trip to Penola's 'Coonawarra Wineries' and Art Galleries, Mt Gambier's famous Blue Lake and its Jazz Festival and the historic township of Casterton with its rolling green hills.


Myall Cottage sits in the middle of farmland reached by a bumpy track and is framed by wide views of paddocks with grazing cows.

Aunt Daphne, born in 1909, was the last to live in the Cottage which saw it's heyday in the 1920's to 1930's. You will find that not much has changed since. This 100 year old cottage retains all its original furniture and historic fittings so expect some degree of quirkiness. The simple kitchen and bathroom are well equipped but there are fires to light, farm gates to open and shut and you will be awoken to the sound of chortling of magpies.

If you take the time to spend a few days, the Cottage will cast a spell as you live a slower pace of life in a different era.


Check-in is easy. I will be waiting in my car on the Penola-Casterton Rd for your arrival. Together, we will travel on to the Cottage so you become familiar with the farm gates, the farm track and the cottage's location in the middle of the farm. For this reason, it is important that you arrive in daylight hours.

I will be in touch, via email, the week of your arrival, to give you detailed directions as to where we will meet as there is no phone coverage once you leave the closest town.

Myall is a working farm, however you will have access not only to the Cottage but you are free to ramble and explore the farm paddocks and the range of farm buildings that still remain from a bygone era.
In winter months you may wish to find a spot under some red-gums, gather wood to light a fire and have a 'paddock picnic'.


It can feel that, as Host, I am leaving you in an isolated setting and what if something goes wrong?

For some, that is the essence of this adventure.
For others used to a city environment, it can seem daunting.

In reality, I am 10 minutes drive away and available at all times. Directions to get to us is provided in the Information Folder in the Cottage.
I will try to be guided by you, as I can visit you everyday of your stay or leave you to enjoy peace and quiet if that is what you need. Please let me know what makes you feel comfortable and I will fit in with your plans.


一般来说,农场季节决定了农场的进度,所以Myall小屋在布什火焰季节期间在12月下旬至3月中旬期间关闭。 6月至8月,有时候进入春天是我们最潮湿的月份,也是我们最忙碌的养牛时代。因此,从5月份开始,平房托管日历将逐月开放,具体取决于农村的平台通道,以及需要在牧场周围移动牲畜以及在牛场内与他们一起工作。 我们当然希望让您感到非常的欢迎,所以请继续浏览此房源,查看小屋的可用性。

In general, the Farming Season's dictates the progress of the farm year so Myall Cottage is closed during the Bush Fire Season in late December until mid March for our guests safety.

June to August and sometimes into Spring are our wettest months and our most hectic cattle husbandry times. For this reason, the Cottage Hosting Calendar will open up, month after month from May, depending on the farm track access to the Cottage and the need to move livestock in around the paddocks as well as working with them in the cattle yards.

We certainly wish to make you feel most welcome, so please keep visiting this Listing to check the Cottage's availability.

- Myall Cottage provides a homely atmosphere so we know you will treat it as you would your home. Please wash the dishes before departure.
- There is a well-equipped kitchen as it is essential that you bring your own food supplies. If needs be, I can provide anything additional that you may require. The closest shopping is a half hour trip to Casterton; a lovely town with its Kelpie Trails and rolling hills, 20 minutes to Penola with its Coonawarra Wine Region or 40 minutes to Mt Gambier and its famous Blue Lake and Generations in Jazz festival.
- The Cottage has an updated kitchen and bathroom but retains its old world charm with an open fire in the sitting room and a wood heater in the dining room. All wood, kindling and fire lighting beads are supplied as well as electric blankets on all the beds.
- There is plenty of room for pets to run however you will need to bring their bedding.
- As there is no Public Transport you will need your own car. Please be aware that the farm track to the cottage can get muddy in winter. There are gates to open to get to the cottage as it is through farm land so make sure you close these as you go.
- The Check-in time is before 5pm. It is important that we meet at the gate to the cottage lane in daylight as your GPS will not work in this location to take you to the cottage. I will be pleased to meet you on Sturms Rd and guide you in.
- There is no TV; Internet Connection or Mobile Phone coverage so we hope you will enjoy a glimpse into a simpler way of country life with its wide pastoral views and starry night skies.





这是一间奇妙而独立的房子!宽阔的大农场上,这个房子在孤独地守护着大片牛羊,它历史悠久,富有内涵,房子里的主厅仍然保留着古老的装饰,壁炉,钢琴,还有很多古典的茶具和富有历史的书本。虽然它的布置很老旧,但床铺却很温馨舒适,提供的浴巾和床单的质量都很赞,虽然外在和内在非常不搭,却是很棒的体验!远离电视,电脑和手机的夜晚,和家人朋友闲聊,是很难得的机会。o(^^)o 值得一提的是,由于离开小镇就没有手机信号,所以必须和屋主沟通清楚后才离开Penola或Casterton,否则互相联系不上的时候,只能求助路边的农场主帮忙联系了()

We absolutely loved our stay and highly recommend staying with Ree. We wished we could have stayed longer to continue exploring the amazing stash of Aunt Daphne's beautiful belongings. One regret was that we didn't discover the gramophone until leaving. We loved being off the grid and cooking by the fire in the cosy kitchen. Ree's warmth and thoughtfulness is evident in every inch of the property- you will have a wonderful time. Thank you Ree!
Thank you Nicola, for such a generous Review. It makes me laugh to think what Daphne would have made of her myriad of visitors. As she was a pragmatic country woman, I am sure she would be amused and delighted that her lifestyle is so highly considered. Unfortunately, our bumpy farm track has become slippery and slide-y so we will close Myall Cottage until the weather clears. Please keep an eye on the Calendar for any changes. Ree

Lovely farm stay, warm, comfortable and with lots of historic interest. Close to Coonawarra wineries too!

A fantastic place to getaway from it all. Spotlessly clean and great value. Lots of history to explore, wood to burn, books to read and perfect peace and quiet. What more could you want?

From the moment we followed Andrew through the gates, across the paddock and past the cows we knew we were in a special place. The welcoming fires and cozy snugness of Myall cottage began a journey into the past with every cupboard and shelf waiting to be discovered. We were two couples visiting on the June long weekend and loved this living museum. While it's a step back in time (totally off the grid) the cottage does have hot water, electricity, a bathroom with basin and shower and is spotlessly clean. It is central to Penola, Casterton and Mt Gambier, but care needs to be taken on the roads at night with kangaroos etc. Ree and Andrew have made it possible for guests to truly escape the rat race and I would recommend Myall cottage to couples and families looking for that escape. Thank you for having us.
