TOWELS & LINEN
The Bootmakers Cottage sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms: 2 Queen bedrooms and a third bedroom with 2 King single beds. It offers a small lounge and small kitchen, but makes up living space with the workshop and stage.
There is a small indoor rustic bathroom with a handmade corrugated iron shower. Throughout the house you can see the builders craftsmanship with the wood panelled walls and other ornate carpentry. Colonial windows overlook a sun-kissed rear courtyard with an iron bathtub to let you bathe al fresco. While the living space inside is fairly compact, the courtyard space is expansive.
Set on a quarter of an acre, it feels spacious out back, but if you step out the front door, it’s a bit of a surprise to be right in the historic main street, complete with bakery, cafe’s, antiques and local wine and produce stores.
Four separate buildings frame a paved quadrangle and fire pit that demands outdoor living by day, stargazing and chilling ghost stories after dark.
There is even an outdoor toilet block to revive the tradition of the outdoor dunny………just no red back spiders hiding behind the cistern. It includes a second shower.
Enjoy an outdoor bubble bath. Or simply lay back in the hammock under the dappled light of the oak tree.
Kick off your shoes. Crack open a cold one at the bar.
From the bar, push through to a second lounge room complete with games and a projector for movies. Challenge the kids to a game of fuzz ball.
The roofed bandstand is available for functions.
The rest of the time it’s a third lounge, even if it’s raining.
The Bootmakers Cottage is available for functions up to 150 people. Contact us for more info.
