  • Wake to the laughter of the kookaburras and the warble of magpies.
  • Cook your breakfast on the gazebo BBQ just outside your cottage.
  • Dine al fresco on your patio and take in the view.
  • Walking distance to wineries and 2 leading restaurants.

Couples wishing to book the Coach House, please note: the amenities in Fettler’s cottage and The Pavilion are the same as The Coach House (two bedroom cottage).
