Settler's Rest - Cosy romantic cottage

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Settler's Rest is a cozy 2 bedroom cottage set in a peaceful rural location a few kilometers from town, perfect for a couple or 2 couples to have some time away from city life. Wood fire for cold winter nights, where you can sit and enjoy a glass of wine or 2 from the local region. The cottage is set on a 250 acre property with amazing walking tracks or for you to take your dog on a run, yes Settler’s Rest is pet friendly.

Denmark marks the spot where forests of towering trees give way to white sandy beaches. Take a drive or walk among ancient karri tree giants, relax by the emerald waters of William Bay, feast on local wine and gourmet produce, or fish one of the largest inlets on the south coast.

You can escape to this romantic old timber milling town within a day, taking the 4 hour drive south from Perth or the 45 minute drive west from Albany.

Guided wine and forest tours are available, or you can hit the scenic Scotsdale Tourist Drive. Along the way, get close to nature in the Harewood Forest, stop for a tasting at a cellar door, berry and herb farm, cheese or chocolate and toffee factory, and perhaps allow a little time to indulge the senses at the Sandalwood Factory.

At the coast, the picturesque Wilson Inlet beckons you to swim, fish, sail, water ski, surf or windsurf. The gentler waters of the river invite you to hire a canoe. While Lights Beach lures you with the promise of hooking herring, salmon and bream.

Venture east and you'll find yourself in the stunning seascapes of William Bay National Park. Here, the calm, clear shallows of Greens Pool tempt you to bathe, snorkel, dive and take a walk to the curious Elephant Rocks. Look out for migrating whales along the coast from July to October. Or take the short drive to The Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk, taking you 40 metres above the forest floor for a bird's eye view of Western Australia's 400 year old tingle tree giants.

Back in town, there are reminders of Denmark's humble beginnings at the historic fire station, school, hotel and the Old Butter Factory.

Cottage was clean and very well equiped. Beautiful grounds. Plenty of wood for the fire to keep you nice and warm. Thank goodness there are places such as these to go on holiday and be able to take you dog as well.

Cosy clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 4 nights. What a fantastic place. Wonderfully equiped with everything you would need. Cosy warm wood fire with split system too. Very clean and well maintained. Property has wonderful walks. And to top it off we were able to bring out dog with us. We would definitely recommend it and will definitely be returning.

Property was well equiped with lovely furnishings

  • 4 of 5

Property was suppose to be dog proof but we had to secure the property - gaps under gates and fences and stairs - which we closed off with wood...Was a little small I have to say but beautifully equiped and maintained. Was a nice stay -
