If you are looking for an escape from busy everyday life to a tranquil and private retreat, this is the perfect place for you.
Chestnut Cottage is a remarkably beautiful place to visit. We understand very well the importance of having a nourishing space, and to be able to feel relaxed when away from one’s own home. We have a large certified organic garden and share vegetables and eggs with our guests when available.
The one bedroom accommodation is set in gardens away from the main house and provides privacy and a relaxed atmosphere. There is a fully equipped kitchen as part of a large and spacious open plan lounge/dining area, the bedroom has a king size bed, and the bathroom has a walk-in shower space. The lounge and bedroom both open out onto a deck area with outdoor furniture. Quality linen is provided. Guest AccessThe entire cottage and deck is for guest use, and you are welcome to walk around the orchard and enjoy the short bush walk on the property. Talk to us about where you can see glow worms at night. Interaction with GuestsTrish and Gijs live 50m away from the cottage allowing privacy (visual and auditory) for guests but are available if assistance is needed. The NeighborhoodBeautiful native forest and bushland, abundance of birds, glow worms and our animals. Incredible dawn chorus. A safe and peaceful neighbourhood for living, doing, being, creating.
