THE COTTAGES

The gable-with-a-lid-on-top roof design allowed for temperature in the tobacco kilns to be controlled by opening and closing flaps. This feature has been retained so that guests can regulate temperature in the buildings in the same way, which makes it nice and cool on hot summer days. No need for air conditioning.

Your own village in the country

This village in the country side has become a favourite for groups of families and friends as we can accommodate up to 20 persons and you can spread out over 4 cottages and endless space outside to explore and play . Minimum stay is for 3 nights and minimum tariff is $900 per day during the year and $1,000 per day during long weekends, school holidays and between 20 December and 1 Feb. 

Each cottage has a wood stove, supplied with dry firewood, to make you feel warm and cosy on the cold nights.

All water is UV sterilised rain water.

All buildings have complete linen, cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery. They have a microwave in addition to gas hob and oven.

There is no TV reception. Bassett's cottage has a television and dvd player with a selection of DVDs for all ages. 

There is a gas fired BBQ in front of the Double Kiln building, which is for use by all the guests. 

Bringing your horse on holiday

 

The cottages give a clear view of the paddocks where you can graze your horses. Beyond the paddocks, you are surrounded by magnificent karri forest. 
There are several well fenced paddock with water troughs, surrounding the cottages.  There is ample parking for horse floats. You can enjoy many routes through the forest that go in a loop, so that you can starting and end at the cottages.

Bringing your dog on holiday

We are dog friendly and have organised a separate small dog enclosure with a kennel inside, which can be used by the occupants of any of the cottages, to make sure your dog cannot escape. Bassett's also has a fenced area and the verandah can be closed off, so this is the ideal cottage if you are bringing your dog. Please let us know what kind of dog you intend to bring when booking. Also be aware that you cannot leave your dog if they will bark constantly and annoy other guests while you are away. There are cows and sheep in the paddocks, surrounding the cottages, so you may have to keep your dogs on a lead if they are going to run into the paddock and chase the animals.

Special discount if you want a longer stay

Except during public and school holidays and between 15 December and the end of January, we can offer you a discount if you want to enjoy a longer stay.

VERY IMPORTANT: There is a total fire ban at our property between the 1st of November and 1st of May. No fires to be lit in the outside firepit between these dates. During the other months, you can use the firepit but you cannot use the wood that has been chopped for the indoor stoves. You can go around the side of the road and collect wood or bring your own. Sometimes we will put branches near the firepit, which you can then also use. If it is cold, you can light the stove inside and use the chopped firewood we have provided. Please be aware that it is a huge job to chop all the firewood, so use it with respect: keep doors closed to keep the heat in, use only the amount needed, etc.

You will have phone reception if you sit by a window or outside and if you are on a telstra based network or on vodaphone. Optus does not appear to provide you with reception .

We follow permaculture and organic principles and our desire is to make a small footprint on this earth and safeguard this little paradise. It is therefore important that you leave behind only that which will convert back into beautiful soil, with the help of worms and composting. Be mindful when shopping and select packaging that can be recycled. We need to preserve this land, so your children and grandchildren will still be able to enjoy it in the future. Therefore, we do not want this land to become a rubbish dump, so please take back what doesn’t belong here.
