Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
When you drive through the gates of 'Tara' you immediately relax taking in the beautiful garden and country side. 'The Cottage' is self contained with a country feel outside and a contemporary design indoors. The historical village of Rockley was established in 1850 and delightful to explore just 5 mins down the road offering a cafe and heritage pub for refreshments.

The space
The cottage was one of the original fixtures when we took over the property in 1993. For many years is was used as a mechanics workshop, hence the original Ampol fuel bowser. It then became the gardening shed until 2017 when we converted it into a self contained unit. A large side patio and one at the front of the cottage gives extra comfort in the warmer months. We also offer undercover parking next to the cottage. Kitchenette available with microwave, crockery cultery, condiments, tea & coffee. Homemade cake tea/coffee complimentary on arrival.

Guest access
The garden around the 'Tara Homestead' and the 'The Cottage' are available to guests to walk around. If gates to the farm are closed that means no access.

Other things to note
The nights from Spring through to Autumn can be chilly and if you enjoy the cold, winter is the time to stay. The four seasons of weather brings many changes in the garden, each with its own beauty. We are situated on the tablelands sitting at 950 to 1,000 metres. We have snow through the winter months which is magical. We also have adequate heating in 'The Cottage' for our guests with throw rugs to snuggle up in.
One other reason to stay is the night sky which lights up like a chandelier on a clear night. The stillness of the night twinkling with zillions of stars is memorable.

During your stay
Hello my name is Janelle! Along with my husband Peter we love making guests feel relaxed and their stay memorable. The cottage is set on 2 acres of garden with the cottage seperate and private from the main house. Relax in the garden with a book or snuggle up and watch netflix if rain or snow has set in. Guests have the option to order and pay separately for a continental or scrumptious hot breakfast using eggs from our chickens with seasonal produce and herbs from our own garden. Bon appetite...!
