Renewed History for Clover Cottage

Historic Clover Cottage (built in 1875) is having a face lift!  After restoring the original rooms back their former glory with new jarrah polished floor boards and revamped ceilings, Paul is now on the homerun with  kitchen and bathroom extensions. 

Using hand fired bricks (similiar date to Clover Cottage), which were salvaged many years ago, the  bathroom and kitchen now boast views of the tennis court, trout lakes and the old garden.  Traditionally Clover Cottage was built with local timber, hand fired bricks and hand crafted doors and windows.  In keeping with the history, Paul has also  hand crafted  the french doors, windows and built  the bathroom ceiling using the local timbers, which were milled locally and  part of the  ’stillstanding’   135 year old Cypress pine from the farm driveway.   At this moment he is laying the blackbutt floor in the kitchen. Stay posted for more photos!   There are plans to make the cottage available in the future for those extra special romantic nights for our special guests!

This was by far the best holiday resort down south I have ever been to in Western Australia. It was so peaceful and I caught 2 things- a stick and a tree! WOOHOO But we fed the donkeys some apples…they are so cute. We had the fire going the entire time. The cottages were so cosy and comfortable….The views from the verandah was amazing and we could always see the donkeys. And they followed my sisiter for her sandwich. We hope to be back here soon.
