Description

Bantam Cottage is a lovely 100 year old, pet friendly cottage and is the ideal house to make your home for a few days. The cafes, restaurants and wonderful shops of Berry are only a leisurely two minute stroll around the corner and it is easy to have the luxury of not having to drive anywhere.

The heart of the cottage is the sitting room which has a beautiful open fire, laid and just ready to light in winter. It is a cozy place to laze in front of with candles and a bottle of red wine or toast marshmallows with the kids.

There are beautiful polished timber floors throughout scattered with rugs for warmth. The kitchen has an oven, stove, all the utensils needed, and a range of basic pantry items are supplied.

The two bedrooms have queen beds which are made up with fresh linen and bedding and have electric blankets. Soft fluffy towels are also supplied. A single inflatable mattress is available if required.

The toilet and bathroom are separate with the bathroom having an easily accessible shower but no bath.

The front verandah looks out over the town to the hills behind and is a lovely place to watch the world go by while at the rear of the house is a large deck overlooking farmland and a quiet rural scene. This catches the morning sun and is a peaceful place to enjoy a morning tea or coffee.

Pets are welcome in the house and the back yard is fully fenced and secure with large shade trees.

Directly across the road is the wonderful Berry Sourdough Bakery with its delicious food, coffee and wood fired breads.
The wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants are only around the corner and 2 minutes walk away.

Gabby's reception centre is also only a two minute stroll down the road.

Pet friendly

A perfect family getaway - pets are welcome too.

Bring your furry best friend on holiday with you and stay in our homely cottage. With our easy to clean timber floors pets are welcome in the house to be a part of the family, sitting infront of the open fire or begging for a treat at the dining table. The back yard is a securely fenced, dog safe area set with large trees and lawn for playing ball games.
Berry is a dog friendly town so you can take your pet to many cafes so he isn't left home alone. There are two off leash areas close to the house and many lovely streets to go for walks admiring the gardens and houses.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charming, so close to everything Lovely, quaint, 100 yr-old friendly spot for the two of us + our 3.6Kg Toy Maltese. Welcome pack had everything you could need: tea, coffee, milk, chocs, plus comfortable bed(s), opposite the Bakery, just around the corner from main street and all the shopping and eating and walks! (Shame about no off-street parking though). Thoroughly recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent This is a 100 year old cottage and yes there r things that could make it even better and mostly cosmetic - we loved it as it was warm and inviting. We had a wedding to attend and I am in a wheelchair so it was a couple of minutes away from Apex Park where wedding was held and the Reception was within walking distance or 'wheeling distance for me'. We enjoyed lunch on the lovely deck at the back of the house too - a big thank you so our visit to Berry was a huge success!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Getaway for a Short Stay We had a wonderful stay at Bantam Cottage. Everything was just as it was promised - and more! Stayed warm and dry during a horrendous storm and heavy downpour of rain on one night so this didn't daunt us at all. We will certainly be back for another sojourn at Bantam Cottage! Furthermore we recommend Bantam Cottage for any person with a disability as there are minimum steps within the property and it is located very close to the main street where all the shops and restaurants are located, with just a level walk to get there. No hassles!
