A beautiful getaway,
in the heart of the South West
Historic Clover Cottage Country Retreat, built in 1875, is a pioneer homestead of the Southern Forests region between Pemberton and Manjimup, Western Australia. The farm is nestled on the banks of the magnificent Warren River.
The charm of Clover Cottage, with its cottage gardens, gnarled old trees and misty river valley setting provide an aura of romance and tranquillity of a bygone era. The superbly built and appointed limestone chalets look down onto the trout filled lake and the Warren River forest valley.
The cosy wood fire and private spa make it the perfect place for a romantic getaway. On the large verandah you can relax in a hammock, enjoy a barbecue or dine out, while enjoying the theatre of the bush. Just bring your clothes, food, bottle of wine, favourite CD’s, walking shoes and a good book.
For the energetic, there’s the grass tennis court, or go bush walking down the original pioneer road and discover the historic schoolhouse/church tucked away in the forest valley. For the kids it's a great farmstay, with friendly donkeys, goats, sheep and chooks to feed.
The trout lake at the foot of your chalet offers the ultimate fishing experience. Down on the river you can paddle upstream in a canoe over long tranquil, tree-lined pools or try your luck with a lure. For the experienced Fly Fisherman there is the trophy lake in an exclusive location off the property. Fly fishing tuition is also available by prior arrangement.

Welcome to the real world. This is a wonderful place. So many birds- you usually only see them in books. Some great fishing- honest. You just need luck. Ruby (my wife) caught nothing, Gerald (my son ) caught three. I caught 1 and lots of bites.
Last night tonight and a little blue tail wren flittered around our feet on the balcony as we watched the lakes just in case the trout started rising again. All quiet, so I have a glass of nice red. Brilliant place, we will definitely come again and I will be recommending it to a couple of my stressed out mates who need a good break.
