Fossickers Foley is a comfy, clean, cheap unit that sleeps 2 in a Queen bed. The tin shed gives an idea of what life was like for the miners of yesteryear. We provide shower/toilet facilities along with fridge, bbq, tea/coffee, toaster etc. Continental Breakfast supplies are provided. Its a fun thing with modern conveniences.

Thank you Angela I like quirky. It really is an old miners shed which is a bit of fun as you found. Lovely to hear you will be back to try your luck at finding gold and gems. The area is certainly rich with them. Look forward to seeing you again.

Fossichers Folly is a chance to stay in conditions like the fossichers did in times past. It's not a 5 star facility and it is not pretending to be but it's a bit of fun that we enjoyed. It's located behind the Gem shop.
