Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Floyd our beautiful retriever has won another heart!  Keira fell in love with the family dog who visited the Drok family at their cottage each day. Although Keira liked Edith the donkey, Max and Kalypso the alpacas, Floyd is still the firm favourite!

Rivers, Water and Fishing

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

Wow! Just love all this rain! The Warren River is looking energised and, of course, beautiful!
Makes fishing in the river a little challenging with the fast flow, but ideal in the lakes around Clover Cottage. Paul has recently stocked out the lakes again with trout.

Hear from our guests

What a beautiful location.  So peaceful and such a great place to get away from civilisation for a few days.  Managed to catch a couple of trout which was fun.  A few places to check out while you are down this way: The Wine and Truffle Company.   Food was amazing .   Also Jarrah Jacks in PEmberton.  Top notch beers, food and service.  Nothing better than being able to fish throughout the the morning.  Visit wineries/restaurant throughout the day and then getting cosy by the fireside with a bottle of shiraz.  Sensational place.

Clover Cottage we will be back!!
