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!

Hear from our guests

For our honeymoon we had a truly relaxing week here at Clover Cottage.  We enjoyed the tranquil setting, happy donkeys and goats, cute little blue wrens, sheep etc.  Eggs from the chickens were tasty on the bread baked fresh in our cottage.  We loved the smell of the bread baking on our arrival.  Myself being a keen angler, I flicked all manner of lures in search of trout and refin.  Red or black spinners worked the best on the redfin and blades and lipless crankbaits also got me a few ferals.  After a week of casting in the mid 30s weather I finally got a couple of trout DEEP in the bottom lake.

We had a lovely time
