Lovers of the Margaret River region & environment will delight in Old Dairy Cottage, situated just 600 metres from the heart of Margaret River. The single bedroom residence offers contemporary styling and ample living space, the lovely native gardens bring in the bird life and the fruit trees will (in time) be available for guests to plunder.
To welcome our guests, we provide a simple “starter” breakfast, sachets of tea, coffee and sugar and a complimentary bottle of Margaret River wine. Regrettably, we can’t cater to dietary needs or individual tastes.
And we discount rates by 10% for stays of 4 and more nights, making it even more affordable to stay.
The open-plan living room has AC and a slim-line wood fire, the Wi-Fi’s free and there’s a 140cm UHD LED LCD “Smart” TV (incorporating Netflix) and a Blu-Ray player.
Please note that Old Dairy Cottage is strictly adults only and that the owners do not permit children, or pets, to stay.

Historic Old Dairy
We've taken licence here. The property, which we've subdivided, was once part of an old dairy farm. In fact, when we purchased the land, the old "homestead" was still standing, but had become a shelter for squatters. The neighbours were elated when we demolished it and even more delighted when we started to develop.
Old Dairy Cottage has been constructed on the southern-most third of the block and was completed mid-December 2016.
Gumnuts is our own rating system, being more in keeping with our style of property than stars.
