The Tathra Cottage property was once dairy country but since the cows have gone and the privet, lantana and blackberry have been cleared, the original rainforest is regenerating. The cottage is now surrounded by both native and exotic trees and shrubs with a very active bird population.

The dam below the cottage is home to hundreds of frogs, dozens of wild ducks which fly in at dawn, and a resident tortoise which floats in the middle of the water on the hottest of days.

Echidnas bumble about during the day and at night wombats explore around the house, invariably leaving their spoor on the top of rocks or logs.

Private and quiet

The design of Tathra Cottage took its inspiration from Arthur Boyd's Music Room at Bundanon on the Shoalhaven, 40 minutes south through Cambewarra. The vertical timber lining boards and high ceilings create a sense of space, reinforced by the views to the outside. French doors open to the verandas. There is a wood fire to keep you warm during winter.

The cottage is fully self contained, comfortably furnished and complemented with fine linen and towels. The setting is very private and, because the property is up the end of a closed valley, there is no traffic. One falls asleep listening to the croaking of frogs and wakes to the calls of the birds.

Fresh linen and towels, video and sound system are provided.

Easy access to the south coast and the southern highlands.

If Tathra Cottage is booked please look at The Old Barn which may be available and is also featured on Ozstays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jewell in the valley We were looking for the "Berry" country experience and found Tathra Cottage on line and booked ourselves in. We had the most amazing stay!. The charm and country atmosphere colluded with the amazing landscape setting to give my wife and I the most memorable weekend. Private, seclude and intimately charming. Love the antique blue washand basin and farm style sink. Spotlessly clean and filled with interesting pieces. The Arthur Boyd references also added to the charm. Thank you Annie for making our stay memorable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet Beautiful secluded cottage. We had a lovely time at Tathra Cottage. We were blessed with beautiful weather; we went swimming at Seven Mile Beach, had a lovely drive through Kangaroo Valley and enjoyed lots of quiet time listening to the birds. Saw lyre boards and wombats as we arrived. Ate at the great cafes on the South Coast -- Kiama and Berry & enjoyed meals from the Southern Providores kitchen in Berry. Cottage is on the escarpment leading up to Kangaroo Valley, and its perfect for a romantic weekend for 2. Lovely detail in the cottage & really well stocked kitchen with a press coffee maker, tea coffee muesli and milk supplied. We built a fire and it works so well we only stoked it for a while and it kept us warm all night. We will come again! Thanks Annie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A unique experience... Our stay at Tathra Cottage was amazing, it is a perfect getaway that allows you to feel far away from the day to day hustle and bustle but still close enough to enjoy some of Berry's great restaurants, we recommend The Hungry Duck for excellent Asian cuisine. As for Tathra Cottage, it is very private and it's surrounds are pristine. My fondest memory is waking up early in the morning to hear the vast array of bush creature sounds and watching the glorious sunrise. The cottage is quaint and extremely well kept with a true feel of yester year, we hope to go back some time in the future.
