Description

Gull Cottage is situated in a quiet cul de sac on exclusive Camden Head, 10 mins to the nearby shops, restaurants and cinema in Laurieton and just 30 mins from Port Macquarie.
Gull Cottage is a casual stroll from a surf beach, the beautiful protected 'Pilot Beach' just inside a breakwall, the Camden Haven River, The 'Googleys' lake and Kattang National Park.
Gull Cottage has been recently renovated complete with a brand new kitchen, providing comfortable accommodation and an expansive deck with commanding views over the Lake and North Brother Mountain. Perfect for the al fresco bar-b-q.
A feature of Camden Head is the resident wildlife with koalas, wallabies, possums, native birdlife and dolphins all part of the day-to-day life. Walking trails in the Kattang national park give access to some of the most spectacular unspoilt coastal landscape and vegitation on the Mid North Coast.
Gull Cottage is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday for families, groups or couples wanting all the attractions of the Mid North Coast. Surf, swim, fish, bushwalking, catch a movie or pick up a bargain at the Riverside Markets, or just relax on the deck amongst the birdlife and magnificent views.

Camden Head

Just to the east of Dunbogan and Laurieton, Camden Head is an exclusive residential area with glorious views north to Port Macquarie and west to North Brother Mountain. The area features walking trails through Kattang nature reserve, and excellent views from Point Perpendicular along South Beach to Diamond Head in the Crowdy Bay National Park. A trail down to the sea allows you to discover deep water rock pools with a variety of sea life, excellent rock fishing, surfing and sun-baking.

For swimming, Pilot Beach is nestled next to the river breakwall with safe 'bay' swimming for the littlies. Wash House Beach is separated by the dummy breakwall and has good open beach surfing, rock fishing and exploring.

Camden Head Pilot Station is a rare surviving intact group of buildings at the mouth of the Camden Haven River. The site was used as a Pilot Station from 1890 -1975 with the original Pilot house built in 1907. The current building dates from 1950. It is currently the subject of a conservation redevelopment, funded in part by Hastings Council, the NSW Ministry of the Arts and the Department of Land and Water Conservation, which will make the facilities available for nature writing, environmental education and community activities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had the best time while we where there. The weather was perfect, the house was excellent, and everything we needed was there. It was just like home but more stylishly decorated. Gus the possum came to say hello, as did the Koala from across the road. The people in the area are so helpful and friendly. We will definitely be going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have just had the most lovely relaxing holiday at Gull Cottage. The house was perfect! Spacious and beautifully decorated, the kitchen was well stocked and we loved sitting on the deck watching the sunsets over the water. The area was fabulous also. There were so many different beaches and things to do and explore for all ages from swimming with the dolphins to kayaking.Mostly, it was a great house to do lots of not very much. The perfect family holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gull Cottage provided the perfect base from which to explore the wonderful surroundings of Dunbogan, Camden Head and North Haven. We spent days swimming at Pilot Beach, afternoons kayaking on the river and the early evenings exploring the rock pools of Washhouse Beach. It was a great place to enjoy the perfect Aussie beach holiday!
