The Miners Cottage

First built in the early 1860s, our three bedroomed Miner’s Cottage has been restored and extended with every modern convenience in 2018. Bullnose verandahs wrap around the entrance and bedrooms offering intimate spaces from which to enjoy garden views. Two bedrooms (with a third including a large  ensuite “Verdure” coming online in Spring 2018), the Chinoiserie and Fornasetti, each with Cultiver linen, woollen Bemboka blankets, feather down Duvets and a pillow menu, offer accommodation for up to four guests (six guests in total). The guest bathroom features a claw foot bath, double basins, separate shower and a European laundry.

There is a snug with wood-burning fire, cosy armchairs and sofas in which to curl up and relax. A theatre room with projector, screen, surround sound and a wood burning stove opens out to the cedar hot tub and outdoor shower.  There are two dining areas and a chef’s kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need including a fully stocked pantry and commercial coffee machine. A complimentary bottle of sparkling wine, port and chocolates are provided on arrival along with other provisions including organic bacon, local farm eggs, milk, orange juice, seasonal fruit, seasonal vegetables and herbs from the garden, artisanal bread, butter, jams, yoghurt, probiotic kefir; goats cheese, granola, croissants and raw honey from our beehives. Supreme Coffee, breakfast tea, chai and herbal teas and Antipodes sparkling water are also included.
