The space
If you want somewhere special, your search is over. Your cottage is nestled at the end of a Riverside Lane at Nelligen. The accommodation is clean, spacious and just a little bit quirky. Lots of features that will want to make you go "Wow!"

The Cottage is located immediately behind the main house so you are not directly on the waterfront. It is extremely close to the riverfront jetty area though.

Ideal for couples and travellers looking for a quiet getaway yet close to all that Batemans Bay has to offer.

★ Kitchenette
Past guests reckon we have thought of everything if you want to dine in. Features include a full size fridge/freezer, convection microwave, Espresso coffee with locally roasted coffee pods, electric frying pans, toaster and much more. A comprehensive list of kitchen items is further below.

★ Lounge area
Reverse cycle air-conditioning. Laz-E-Boy recliners. Flat screen television and DVD. Bose sound system. Free Netflix. Small dining table.

★ Bedroom
The bedroom is a huge 17 square metres. Relax on a Queen size bed with a super comfortable Sealy Posturepedic mattress. Feather quilt. Electric blanket. Quality linen. Wardrobe. Iron and ironing board. Hair dryer.

★ Bathroom
Modern bathroom with walk in shower. Washing machine. Towels. Bath mats. Soap. Even a large fish???

★ Outdoor area
If your cottage is not enough to make you go "wow", then walk a few steps to our private jetty on the Clyde River. Grab a comfortable chair, sit back and relax. It is a busy river though. Pelicans soar past. Teals paddle nearby. Fish jump from the water. Or just wave to the occasional fishing or houseboat as they cruise past.

Around dusk is the perfect time for a plate of Clyde River Oysters washed down with your favourite wine or ale. If it gets a little chilly, enjoy your own campfire or even have a barbecue.

Guest access
Your accommodation is fully self contained. Your own bathroom. Your own space. We want you to enjoy the serenity of the Clyde River as much as we do so you are welcome to sit by the jetty, have a barbecue or even a campfire.

Other things to note
INTERNET AND FREE BROADBAND WIFI
Yes. Great for checking your emails and planning your adventures. The wifi extends to the jetty as well.

MOBILE PHONE:
Mobile reception for Telstra is now available.

MUSIC
A small but powerful Bose Portable sound system is ready for you to just plug in your smart phone or ipod. Maybe take it down by the River for some mood music!

TELEVISION AND DVD
Free Netflix! Plenty of movies there to chill out to. We also get most of the commercial TV channels. Or kick back and watch a movie from our DVD collection if you prefer.

TOILETRIES
Toilet paper. Soap provided.

HEATING AND COOLING
An energy efficient and super quiet reverse cycle air-conditioner is provided. Keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. Just don't leave it on all day please.

BRING YOUR BOAT OR KAYAK
If you want to bring your boat, there are two boat ramps nearby and plenty of space on the property to park your boat and trailer.

CAN WE FISH OFF THE JETTY?
Absolutely. Flathead, bream, mulloway and the odd snag! You will probably need a licence though. If you don't have one, we can help you arrange on online.

CAN YOU SWIM IN THE RIVER?
The property is right on the Clyde River. Though you can swim in the river, the tidal influence can be strong. So we do ask you use your common sense and be water safe in general. If you do bring your own boat or kayak, we can offer you lots of advice, but you may be unable to tie up at the Jetty depending upon your boat size.

Though we live on site, it doesn't always mean we will be here. We like to travel a lot - either overseas or maybe just going for a kayak paddle down the Clyde!

Location

Nelligen, New South Wales, Australia

We are located right on the Clyde River less than a kilometre downstream from the historic village of Nelligen. Being in a dead end laneway means no traffic. Only a couple of dozen houses on this side of the river.

At Nelligen, there is just one shop - ideal for a coffee or fish and chips.

Just another kilometre past the village is the Steampacket Hotel with a bistro and excellent wood fired Pizza. (Pizzas only available on Friday and Saturday nights.)

Batemans Bay is just a 7 minute drive away with all the amenities you would expect to find in a large regional centre.

Canberra is 140kms away. Under a 2 hour drive. Sydney is 330kms away and takes between 3.5 to 4 hours.

We are both keen independent travellers. When travelling, we look for places in great locations that reflect the local area. Apart from travel, we enjoy going kayaking on the Clyde River - right at our doorstep. Bushwalking in the surrounding National Parks or searching for the perfect cappuccino are other local pursuits. Peter is also a licensed microlight and ultralight pilot. He can occasionally be seen flying over the Clyde River Cottage. For several years, he was involved in the management of one of the worlds largest adventure travel companies which enabled him to see the world quite differently from the average traveller. White water rafting, sea kayaking, sailing, trekking and cycling were all part of the job. Peter was also a commercial hot air balloon pilot. His latest adventure involved driving an auto-rickshaw 3500 kilometres across India. Wendy is an enthusiastic traveller. She has ridden camels in the deserts of the Sinai and India. Trekked in Nepal. Ballooned over Australia. Other countries visited include Indonesia, Poland, France, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Italy, Cambodia, Albania, Ireland, Greece, Myanmar, Cuba, Japan, Hungary, Georgia, Sri Lanka and many many more. France is her favourite though and she loves any opportunity to exchange a few sentences with like minded French travellers. They are both distance runners. Peter has 25 marathons under his belt. Wendy completed her first marathon in Medellin, Colombia, 2019. We look forward to having you stay with us and giving us the opportunity to share why love this part of Australia so much. It has taken us a lifetime to get here. Our search is over. Let us help you on your search for the perfect Airbnb. Oh. Nearly forgot. We have a mini Schnauzer - Ellie. Very friendly and always keen for a walk.
