PET FRIENDLY (our Kelpie Gus just loves to have playmates)
Gum Paddock Country Cottage is situated approximately 9 km from the GPO in the main shopping precinct of Broken Hill and features 1 x Double Bedroom, open Living room with an ornate Fireplace, fully equipped kitchenette and private bathroom.
The Cottage was originally The Silverton Tramway Billiard Hall and has many a story to tell. It was transported to Gum Paddock in 1996 providing a great getaway and is quaintly decorated by a "step back in time" feel but with all the modern conveniences to make your stay relaxing and comfortable.
The Cottage also has a double fold out lounge in the open plan living area so it can accommodate up to 4 people if needed.
Relax in the front cottage garden and enjoy our friendly native Sulphur Crested Cockies who like to visit us regularly or BBQ in your very own private creek.
Take a stroll through the beautiful dry creek bed and down to the Old Railway Bridge, you might be lucky enough to spot some wild Sturt Desert Peas or catch a glimpse of an emu or a kangaroo or two.
Fresh eggs are provided from our free-range chickens and Gus the Kelpie would love to show you where they live in and around the large fruit orchard - whilst you're there, your welcome to pick the oranges and lemons. You might even be in time for ripe quandongs.
Gum Paddock Country Cottage is just the perfect way to get back to nature. Come and relax with us for a while.
Complimentary, fresh eggs are provided on arrival from our free-range chickens.
PETS ARE VERY WELCOME! ($50 per pet, per stay)
Your friendly hosts are Chuck & Gail Cresswell.
