History of Cotswold Gardens
“Cotswold” was built in the late 1800’s by William Curtis who was born in “The Cotswolds” England in 1859. He set sail for Australia with five shillings in his pocket, and arrived with two shillings, having donated the other half to a fund taken up for the ship’s cook. In 1893 he opened a small drapery shop in Armidale. William Curtis’s Store grew to become one of the most successful stores in Armidale with branches in Uralla and Hillgrove. In those days “Cotswold” occupied the entire block of land running between Marsh, Faulkner, Jeffrey and Newton Streets and was a showplace of beautiful garden beds and trees, requiring two full-time gardeners to maintain them. Mr. Curtis was a devoted flower lover, traveling miles to judge the flower exhibits of country shows. The camphor laurels to the south of the house and the willows along Dumaresq Creek were part of the civic tree plantings he initiated in Armidale. After Mr. Curtis’ death “Cotswold” passed through a number of hands until in 1966 it was developed as a motel and the house was converted into a restaurant and motel reception area.
In November 2011 New Owners John & Denise purchased the business, and are embarking on further refurbishments of the motel and restaurant, ensuring that their guests enjoy superb dining and accommodation combined with a more personal style of service and warm hospitality that is only found in boutique establishments.
