About the property

***PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT ACCEPT SO CALLED "ONLINE BOOKINGS" - DIRECT INQUIRIES RECEIVE A DISCOUNT.

TO BOOK OR SEND A REQUEST, SIMPLY CONTACT US VIA STAYZ. THANK YOU.

THE COTTAGE: This one of a kind private holiday cottage furnished with special things like our European antiques to enjoy a special ambience. Open fireplace, books, CDs, TV/DVDs, complete cooking facilities incl. BBQ, spacious timber deck, a hot bath and ensuite; all these we trust will make your stay unforgettable!

HORTICULTURAL: Norala Garden is a BRIGHT OPEN GARDEN icon and was highly recommended on 3AW Big Backyard in 2014. Garden lovers will delight in the splendid renowned garden, established by Norma McGown and Alma Stanhope in the 1960s. Their landscaping story is local lore and the garden is a testament to their love of beautiful European landscaping with extensive English-style dry stone walling and terracing.

LOCATION-LOCATION-LOCATION: At 77 Gavan St, you have Bright's center at your doorstep, and can try award-winning restaurants like Simone's (98 Gavan St) or Tanis (100 Gavan St) without having to drive!

FLY FISHING: Personally crafted maps with up to date information about fishing hot spots and fly-patterns are provided. A sure-fire way, to catch a local, naturally spawned trout!

PEDALLING: A healthy and refreshing way to tour the region. This means you can sample the local wines and the region's best produce in style.

HOME GODDESS/KITCHEN KING: Hate having to buy the good oils and spices for dressing your meals on your weekend away? Our kitchen supply of olive oils will complete your gourmet meals, the oils you choose for cooking we leave up to you!

LUXURY COMFORTS: You can enjoy the creature comforts of an open fireplace with wood supplied. It will keep the cottage extra warm during those cool High Country nights.

Due to heritage status of Norala Garden STRICTLY NO PARTIES

Mrs Simpson at Norala Garden is Non Smoking.

Unfortunately won't accept families with children under 8, and children have to be supervised by an adult along the creek at all times. This is because Norala Garden has direct and unfenced access to Baker's Gully, which is a seasonal creek that can flow strongly at times, and contains a few deeper pools.
