Gables Cottage - quiet country retreat

About the property

Gables Cottage is a great place for a country escape for all the family!

Stay in a period timber cottage full of character set in a beautiful cottage garden on two acres of rural land in the tiny village of Wingello, 15 minutes from Bundanoon.

There are two charming bedrooms with queen beds and one with a double and a single in the cottage, and a cabin with ensuite in the garden which is the forth bedroom. The cabin is available when the booking is for 6 or more guests.

Sit around a camp fire under a brilliant starry night (May - August) cooking marshmallows and sharing yarns. Or have a cozy night in around the fire enjoying a glass of wine, a tall story or just delving into a book.

Visit the many local attractions including the Morton National Park, Southern Highland villages and wineries or farmers markets.

Get active mountain bike riding in the famous Wingello State Forrest or bush walking in the National Parks.

Or do nothing but enjoy the peaceful country atmosphere while children run free.

Perfect seclusion yet only a short walk to the general store/cafe.

Pets are strictly only allowed if prior permission has been granted. No pets allowed in bedrooms.

So come and enjoy the many pleasures of Gables Cottage!

4. Please contact me if you have any special requests not included in the above.

A wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was gorgeous! The bedrooms were spotlessly clean and well appointed. The bed linen was crisp and clean, and the heaters and electric blankets made the experience even more enjoyable. The wood fire made us all feel warm and toasty and cosy, and all we wanted to do was hang out in the spacious lounge-room. All the modern conveniences were available. Our family bonding weekend was made even more special by the quiet surroundings, wild life viewing, and excellent service from Jeanette across the road. We'll definitely be back! A great place to stay!

Richard the owner was very accomodating with an early check in for us as we were attending a wedding nearby.

Cosy, comfortable and charming

  • 5 of 5

A perfect country cottage for a weekend getaway.

It was freezing cold but the wood fire quickly warmed us, the electric blankets were welcoming and the kitchen functioned superbly.

Walks round the property revealed fence leaping kangaroos, evidence of wombats but unsighted, a tranquil dam and a total feeling of rural peace.

We walked the Long point and Badgery's tracks near Tallong, lunched on wholesome soups at Penrose cafe, played golf at nearby Sylvan Glen and popped into Exeter cafe for coffees and muffins prior to heading home.

A wonderfully happy family weekend!

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful few days. Very comfortable, warm and relaxing stay. Just what we needed. Would love to visit the property again in Spring. Very peaceful in a quaint village setting. Loved the village store which was a leisurely stroll away with a lovely cafe and wonderfully friendly staff.

A Sweet Surprise

  • 5 of 5

I'm a little reticent to say how great this place is, as we'd love to keep it a secret, but the host is so very nice and helpful, that it would be unfair not to oblige.

It's better than the photos and description would have you thinking; they don't do it justice. Very spacious, comfortable and cosy, it gets the afternoon sun, and has ample internal heating. The best thing is that this is really a home, and is set up as such, with condiments (salt, pepper, oil, tea, coffee - and a coffee machine - and many other little items in the kitchen, to save you bringing everything) and is extremely well equipped for cooking and eating etc., in fact, one of the best equipped places we've stayed at (though I should have learned by now to ALWAYS take my own peeler! Always my bugbear).

The other best thing (there were a few 'best' things), was the land; the kids were just off and running, and also cycling up and down the quiet lanes... The dog was on their heels... They were just out most of the time. Plus the bonfire (I know it says May onwards, but there had been a lot of rain that day, and no wind, and the kids had never toasted marshmallows); that was great. And the stars!!!

No negatives, but it is a little off the beaten track/isolated if you are planning on doing all the gardens etc., but everything else makes up for that. Also, small children would need to be supervised much of the time, both due to the dam, but also the fireplace, and bonfire, and there are quite a lot of antiques and nick-nacks. Our boys are 8 &10, and can completely run free, but the 8 year old still managed to burn himself. The place was also immaculate (aside from some mould in bathroom sink, and around back of kitchen sink; but I have an issue with mould), and housekeeper does a great job.

Would like to go back for a week...
