A little piece of paradise.

In summer, you can be on the beach in 20 minutes and then come home to the seclusion and cooler mountain breezes on Cambewarra Mountain which overlooks most of Shoalhaven. Seven Mile Beach at Shoalhaven Heads is dog friendly, so your canine friend will be happy too!

You can enjoy the fantastic shops and award-winning restaurants of Berry and Kangaroo Valley and then wind down at sunset on your covered verandah with a refreshing glass of something cool while you spot our resident wombats and birdlife.

In winter you can snuggle up in front of the wood burning stove. After that, you can take time out to soak up the atmosphere in our spa baths or have a visit from our local massage therapist, before hitting the sack to recharge the batteries and awaken to the sound of native birdsong, welcoming in the next day.

About the holiday cottages

There are two cottages which each sleep four and are quite separate from each other for privacy. At the same time, together, they can provide great accommodation for a family of eight or a group of friends.

Both cottages have two bedrooms and are designed with a rustic feel to blend in with the tranquil rainforest setting. To complement this, each is furnished with an array of eclectic furniture providing all the creature comforts of home including a well-stocked kitchen.

The main bedrooms have ceiling fans and French doors opening up onto the verandah to catch the cool summer breezes. Whilst during the winter months you can enjoy the warmth of the wood burning stove in the cosy living room. Both cottages have spa baths.

Please note that we do not have secure fencing for your dog as we are on 18 acres of rural property.  The cottages are quite a way from the quiet road that we live on.  There is plenty of grass at the cottages for your dog to play and run around.
