It features a large deck, open plan living and a well equipped kitchen. We can accommodate six guests in two bedrooms (1 room with a queensize bed and 1 room with a queensize and a bunk bed). Fresh breakfast ingredients are provided. There is one bathroom. The forest and native garden setting provides home for many birds, lizards, pademelons and other wildlife and ensures privacy in a relaxing environment.

                                                        Cottage was very clean. Kitchen was very well equipped and a generous breakfast of bread,eggs,milk, butter, jam, cereal ,fruit and juice was left in the cottage. Lots of games,toys and DVDs for the children. Beautiful garden with pademelons to watch. Very close to Hastings caves and convenient base for the air walk, Hartz mountain and national park. Very comfortable and we would stay here again.
