The Tannery Mudgee Self-contained

Bedrooms 2
Property type house


About the property

Catering on an exclusive use basis for up to two couples, with open fires, a fabulous dining room, modern kitchen, claw-foot bathroom, delightful rear garden and comfortable beds - all complimenting the simple style of the early Victorian era.

Enjoy the peace and quiet, luxury setting and handy location for a very special Mudgee getaway.

Exquisite country accommodation in the heart of Mudgee

In 1858 a saddler by trade, James Dixon Little was operating the Australian Tannery at the rear of this site and it is believed that the present cottage was built by Little in the late 1850's as accommodation for workers at the tannery.

The cottage, though now renovated, has retained much of its natural charm. Catering for one or two couples, there is a comfortable lounge with open fire, two bedrooms with luxurious linen, comfortable beds (one queen and one double), a superbly finished bathroom with enormous claw foot bath, fabulous dining room and large well-equipped industrial stainless steel kitchen, with second fireplace, all complimenting the simple style of the early Victorian era.

Enjoy the enclosed garden with covered verandah to sit and read the papers, sip a cup of tea or coffee, before strolling down the quiet Lawson Street to the town centre, the local markets, one of the many cafes, Roths Wine Bar, or the nearby Oriental Hotel. Country living in the heart of town - the best of both worlds.

With off street parking, TV/DVD/CD

The Tannery is set up for adults however children are welcome. Note though that the bedding comprises one queen and one double bed that are unable to be split to singles. Small (non-shedding) pets are welcome with BYO bedding and the rear yard is well fenced.

Gorgeous cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous cottage in a quiet street but close enough to walk into town. We were really impressed with the supplies provided such a nice touch after a long drive. There was plenty of wood for the fire places & Darren's suggestions for places to visit was spot on. Mudgee is lovely we will definitely be back to stay at The Tannery.

Fabulous Property

  • 5 of 5

We visited Mudgee for the first time and were so pleased we did, so much to see and do and what a spectacular find "The Tannery" was. Rustic but so well appointed, loads of charm and appeal. The provisions that greeted us are virtually unheard of anymore and so another fabulous and much appreciated surprise, wine, strawberries, fresh bread just to name a few. Darren the host is so helpful with information regarding the town and surrounds it made our stay even better knowing the good coffee, breakfast, dinner and provisions establishments. We seriously can't fault it and having 2 glorious fireplaces when it was just a tad on the chilly side -3 in the morning was again just what was required. Fabulous,fabulous, fabulous!!!!

Spacious, character property

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very quiet yet conveniently situated to be able to stroll around town, even out of town, walked home from Simon Gilbert Cellar Door one evening. Kitchen and bathroom and main bedroom were great. If I had to be very critical I would say that its time for a new lounge suite in the living room it's looking tired and isn't so comfortable. Saying that it would not stop me from going back.
