Station Masters Cottage- train spotters paradise

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

While the railway’s backdrop of country trains occasionally rumbling by, may not be for everyone, it adds a certain nostalgic feel of days gone by and there is much history associated with the railway siding which you can read all about in the guest compendium at the property. You or some of your guests may even like to consider arriving for your stay by train – practically stepping off the platform and a short stone’s throw onto the front verandah!

This extremely interesting property has seen various upgrades over the years making it a superb and quaint place to stay. It is a classic weatherboard cottage retaining a lot of its original features; high ceilings, internal lining boards and timber flooring, updated (but not new or modern) bath room with separate toilet and electric kitchen. Construction is Western Red Cedar with an iron roof and wide Jarrah and Kauri Pine floor boards. The furnishing and decorating is all very sympathetic and comfortable. The house is warm and cosy in winter.

This is an ideal location to stay at for visiting local wineries, Brigadoon is Bundanoon, Highlands Fling, attending weddings at Montrose Berry Farm, Southern Highlands Winery, Eling Forest, and all the Highlands have to offer including the Glow Worm Glen, Solar Springs, Morton National Park. We are across the road from Exeter Antiques, and Gallery Ecosse, a contemporary art gallery situated in The Halcyon Cottage, circa 1869

• 3 x Reverse cycle Daiken air con/heaters

• Fantastic stable style door in master bedroom – great in summer!

The biggest surprise is out the back – a large wood lined shed with polished concrete floors set up as a games room and additional comfortable lounge area. It has a northern wall of glass-sliding doors, creating a beautiful warm sun-trap for breakfast or morning tea and providing a great outlook over a large fully fenced garden and beyond to the beautiful trees of the village as the occasional train rumbles by.

This area includes:-

• Slow combustion wood stove and heater

"Jane and the team at The Holiday Rental Specialists have been fantastic in getting us set up and under way in the rental of our cottage at Exeter. Every detail has been looked after; the booking process, cleaning and presentation of the cottage, monthly statements and payments, and feedback and follow-up have all been first class and has meant it has been an entirely stress-free exercise for us. We're grateful for the highly professional and efficient service we have received and look forward to an ongoing successful arrangement with Jane and the team."
