Breathe country air, awaken to the native birdsong; feel the stresses of city life leave you when you arrive here.
The cute, two bedroom cottage offers a sanctuary in the country, set on 5 acres of gardens and paddocks containing some lifestyle block pets; a pony, a pig, chooks, goldfish pond, a cat and a dog as well as numerous native birds.

Kids can bounce on the netted, 14 foot trampoline or play in the sand pit. Guests are welcome to explore the various outbuildings being sure to leave gates open or closed as they find them please. There are various four legged friends here; Pesque the pig, George the pony, Nascha the dog, Cookie the cat and pond fish. Coming soon.....free range chooks so my guests may enjoy farm fresh eggs!!!!! There is a plastic ottoman on the deck of the main house labelled, "outdoor games gear" which has sandpit toys, petanque sets, croquet gear etc and guests are invited to use these. Please take due care around water and animals here.
I live in a house about 60 feet from the cottage with my young children, a tiny dog and a friendly tabby cat. We are out and about most days and like to let guests enjoy privacy. We are happy to help when asked. We love to see guests wandering round, soaking up the ambience, discovering garden artworks and looking at the fish in the pond.
The cottage is on rainwater supply. Please conserve water.
The property is home to many ancient trees, native birds, skinks and more. As well as this there are domestic pets and livestock on the property. Please treat all with care and respect during your stay.
Please be respectful to the nature here and the animals whether it be birdlife, skinks, livestock, pets or plants.
