What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday with family and friends in the orchard with local country food,  local wine and  good company!   We all gathered together in Clover Cottage’s  orchard  to celebrate  the Cherry Festival and just being together!!

Guests, friends and family all enjoyed the festivities of the 2010 Manjimup Cherry Festival, with the taste of the Southern  Forest Foods being the highlight!    The famous Long Table Lunch in Newtons Orchard was also well supported this year with up 200 people also enjoying local food and wines.

Cherry Festival in the Southern Forest

The weekend of December 11th and 12th means a celebration of the harvesting of cherries and the  gathering of friends and family at Clover Cottage to coincide with the Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival 2010.

Although our cherry trees at Clover Cottage are not as fruitful as  other Manjimup and Pemberton  orchards, we are still going to have a special celebration for  good friends and family with a long table lunch in our  historic orchard.

Leading up to the lunch everyone will be kept entertained with foodstalls, cooking demonstrations during the day on Saturday followed by a family concert and picnic at the Timber Park on Saturday night.

If you too would like to experience a long table lunch  among  magnificent cherry orchard in The Newton Brothers Orchard,  visit the official website for more details http://www.cherryfestival.com.au/LongTableLunch.htm

A Country Wedding

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Congratulations to the newlyweds!

Sarah and Shane  recently  tied the knot down at Clover Cottage in the small  historic church close by.

At the church

The  church was built with handfired bricks  in 1880 by the same builder who built Clover Cottage in 1875 and  is nestled down in the forest valley  not far from Clover Cottage which is near Pemberton  in the South west of  WA.

Fishing is still important
What a beautiful day it was, with the celebrations  and photos taking place at Clover Cottage Country Retreat!  We know  Shane loves his fishing and he certainly hooked a  beauty with his beautiful bride,  Sarah.
Wedding photos were taken around the lakes and river and the reception was held in cottage one

Hear from our guests

What a beautiful place- the peace, the silence, the 2 dear donkeys, warm fire at night, the smell of fresh bread to welcome us when we arrived, the bird life, balm to the soul.  A wonderful spot for two weary grandparents, to recharge their batteries.
