Heritage cottage town centre. Close the gate, private garden with shady verandah, courtyard at rear. Beautiful winter or summer

High ceilings, cosy lounge lots of sofas a deep tub to soak away the day. Ambience of yesteryear

We have upgraded the space with larger dining table art works and various furniture to make it more homely and inviting. Our photos show new and old pics. I am sure our regular guests will enjoy the difference.
Sadly our wood stove replaced by gas so efficient in winter😁

The space
A quick note re these strange times.. . ...We will be doing extra precautionary cleaning. However we do recommend the prescribed individual health methods of washing hands frequently and taking the recommended social distancing advice.

Step back in time built when the pace of Iife was much slower . Just a note our house is a heritage cottage built prior to 1900 please check out the photos and if you need clarification please ask..if on the other hand you are into streamline new architecture or smick renovations this is not the cottage for you 🤔😎

We love the old cottage which is heritage listed and tried to keep it as authentic as possible. If on the other hand you are into the historical you will feel right at home . It is an Australian cultural experience totally unique to the time it was built and one to be cherished from a time long past.

There are two large bedrooms. Bed 1 is a queen four poster. Bedroom 2 also a heritage queen bed. Both beds are comfortable and cosy.

We can provide a porta cot and we do have a queen size sofa bed in the lounge. Just ask in advance we are happy to help with sleeping logistics to make your stay comfortable:) (Also happy to answer enquiries for single night stays depending on the season etc)

Nb the price quoted is for the is for two beds should you require extra linen for three beds or the sofa bed there will be an extra charge
All have duvees and plenty of cosy extras.

The lounge is large with very high 15 ft ceilings conveniently heated by an instant gas heater . It is extremely effective and heats the whole house. (We do not recommend it be left on whilst sleeping. There are oil heaters in the bedrooms as well as electric blankets). There is a large screen TV as well as books and games. The sitting room dining room has an extra sofa, the perfect place to curl up with a book.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all dishes utensils cutlery etc also has a coffee maker, toaster, microwave as well as a full electric stove complete with oven and four hotplates.

The back of the house has a private courtyard which is a lovely sunny spot. Beyond that is a large garden.
The front entrance to the house is straight off the main street but totally private. we have no stairs to the main entrance but a ramp.

The bathroom is original shower over the deep old fashioned bath. The sink in the bathtub has no hot water but the shower is wonderfully hot. There is a spare wash basin in the kitchen area with hot water.

A cottage garden and high hedge give you total privacy whilst being in the centre of town. If you choose you have no need to drive as everything in the town is steps away. Bakery next door supermarket steps away hotel across the road together with many fabulous cafes.

The front verandah is a comfortable place to sit and relax in the afternoon sun or indeed as it's covered a great place to watch storms or be outside on the inclement days . We have lots of throw rugs! curl up with a book and a hot cuppa.

Check us out on Facie 41 Hickory or destination Dorrigo.

Send us a message we are happy to answer any questions. If its a same day booking also enquire sometimes we will be able to organise that :)
Kind regards Maria

Guest access
We do not have WiFi! :)Sorry...but we do provide books a TV and a gas fire to relax.

We are next door to the bakery and across the road from several cafes/ RSL, pub etc

The local library have a free WiFi network if you require. Many cafes around town have delicious food plus wifi!

There is a public phone booth across the road a rarity these days.

If you are coming from another country have an unlocked phone and do not have roaming Australia has very reasonable rates for a non contract monthly weekly service. The international airports have phone companies that are very helpful Telstra and Optus ( I find particularly good)

Other things to note
Don't hesitate to ask a question! We are always happy to assist :)
One thing to note during Easter and Xmas we usually prefer minimum two night stays but ask away we may be able to help with that one night.
If you require the sofa bed please tell us at the time of booking..there is an extra charge for linen..
Just a note during the busy times usually school holidays we prefer to take 2 night bookings however we try to be fairly flexible. Any queries though don't hesitate to ask :)
Other points to note..We are a heritage cottage quite a few things are old fashioned as a result if you are looking for modern state of the art new house lol it's not the place .. bathroom sink has cold only. There is another washbasin located in the kitchen area which has hot and cold .
We love animals and have had many four legged friends stay. Unfortunately our rescue cat Frank E Puss has had some bad experiences in his past so we now sadly cannot take your much loved pet. Just a note Frank lives outside the house and is well taken care of by Tracy. If you love cats you are welcome to give him some love. The extra large storage tank has piping hot water but is not instant gas.
Added note re Frank he is currently missing we are hoping beyond hope he comes home..if you are staying and see him we would appreciate you making him welcome.
Bon voyage

Location

Dorrigo, New South Wales, Australia

We love the fact that you do not have to drive once you gave settled in.

When you open your front gate you have everything you could possibly require at your fingertips.

At the same time close the gate total privacy on the front verandah and in the private courtyard at the back of the property.


So many comfy nooks to sit read ponder have a cuppa or wine inside and out of the cottage. We never tire of the seasons in Dorrigo. We love the quirky furniture it is a one of a kind cottage. Many people comment it takes them back to their grandparents house/ time.

Easy drive to Dorrigo National World Heritage rain forest centre and Park. Other longer drives Ebor Falls and Cathedral Rock National Park. Dangar Falls also very close to town.
On another note we are in the main streets next to a bakery there is some traffic noise and the occasional baking pan crash
