Red Rose Cottage
Tenterfield Accommodations White and Red Rose Cottages are superbly appointed to create a truly romantic atmosphere for couples to simply relax. Established for special occasions, romantic breaks, weddings, honeymoons, short or long stays this accommodation option will leave a lasting impression.
The beautifully restored, circa 1870 duplex workers cottages are constructed of local stone and presented to an unusually high standard for the most discerning of customers. The recent renovations have been sympathetically blended into the old world charm that is obvious as soon as you set foot in the door.
These stylish cottages have not lost any of their character only enhanced by the provision of luxury fixtures, fittings and amenities. One of the most photogenic places we have ever stayed, a pure delight. Everything in the cottage is of high standard.
Timeless and simplistic in design the local heritage listed stone walled building was built to stand the test of time and will remain this way for many decades to come. Red Rose Cottage is set romantically within a beautiful cold climate garden and surrounded by traditional iron bark post and rail fences.
On the doorstep of the cottage is a beautiful alfresco dining area under seasonal grape vines entangled around a gorgeous heavy iron bark pergola. A large dining table and iron chairs sit adjacent to the original 1800s cottage water well, garden and trees with views of the Post Office clock tower that chimes on the hour.
A cosy and private setting Red Rose Cottage is perfect for those romantic weekends or extended stays where it should just be the two of you. Wake up in a queen bed surrounded by European pillows and birds chirping out side. Enjoy breakfast in the alfresco dining area or the privacy of your own cottage.
Star gaze the big southern skies or relax with a local wine by the cast iron fire place. Enjoy dinner using the well equipped kitchen which includes a range of complimentary items including sugar, olive oil, herbs, tea, instant and ground coffee.
Your heritage accommodation is conveniently located within 600m stroll to Tenterfields Post Office, main historic shopping and business precinct. Why not visit one of Australias most charming movie theatres in the Sir Henry Parks School of Arts building for a truly memorable evening, you will think youre in Gold Class. A short drive can take you too many local restaurants, cafes, wineries, galleries, beautiful gardens, museums and golf course.
