Bantam Cottage is a lovely 100 year old, pet friendly cottage and is the ideal house to make your home for a few days. The cafes, restaurants and wonderful shops of Berry are only a leisurely two minute stroll around the corner.
The heart of the cottage is the sitting room which has a beautiful open fire, laid and just ready to light in winter. It is a cozy place to laze in front of with candles and a bottle of red wine or toast marshmallows with the kids.
There are beautiful polished timber floors throughout scattered with rugs for warmth. The kitchen has an oven, stove, all the utensils needed, and a range of basic pantry items are supplied.
The main front bedroom has a queen bed while the second bedroom has a double bed. Both beds are made up with fresh linen and bedding and have electric blankets. Soft fluffy towels are also supplied. A single inflatable mattress is available if required.
The toilet and bathroom are separate with the bathroom having an easily accessible shower but no bath.
The front verandah looks out over the town to the hills behind and is a lovely place to watch the world go by while at the rear of the house is a large deck overlooking farmland and a quiet rural scene. This catches the morning sun and is a peaceful place to enjoy a morning tea or coffee.
Pets are welcome in the house and the back yard is fully fenced and secure with large shade trees.
Directly across the road is the wonderful Berry Sourdough Bakery with its delicious food, coffee and wood fired breads.
The wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants are only around the corner and 2 minutes walk away.
Gabby's reception centre is also only a two minute stroll down the road.
A perfect family getaway - pets are welcome too.
The back yard is set with large trees and lawn and is securely fenced, and can be accessed from the deck or down the side of the house through gates. The front fence and gate are only a metre high and enclose a small cottage garden.
