Ideal if you are working away from home, holidaying for any length of time or an overnight stay on the way through to your destination.
This cottage accommodation is unique in Broken Hill - it has an in-ground pool. If you don't always enjoy a dip, you can relax inside. It's welcoming, light, airy and comfortable. It's the perfect place to relax after walking in the dust and heat around the local attractions that include Pro-Hart Gallery 2 streets away, The Sculptures and Silverton. Put your feet up and watch an assortment of DVDs.
The cottage was built in the 1930s - a 'Tinny' made from timber and corrugated iron. The floors are timber and the kitchen bluestone tiles. The cottage is self contained has 2 main bedrooms a third single room is also available. The main bedroom with mirrored built in robes has a queen size bed, the other bedroom has a double bed. Each bedroom is comfortably appointed with superior blankets, doonas and fresh linen. It's on a main road, however the trucks en-route from Adelaide to Sydney do not drive past the cottage - their route is a block away. Local traffic is not busy.
The Pool House has a fully appointed kitchen including an electric stove and oven, George Foreman grill, sandwich maker, deep electric fry pan, round electric skillet, sauce pans, nutri bullet blender, baking trays and small and large utensils.

The laundry has ironing facilities and a washing machine.
The iron and timber bathroom has a roll top, claw foot bath with overhead shower and separate toilet. The toilet is also accessible from the outside pool area.
You will be comfortable with evaporative air conditioning to cope with the dry heat. A split system is installed in the OPEN plan area to cope with humidity during summer and provide warmth in winter. A wood combustion heater you can buy wood locally is in the lounge room, and a secure yard with off street parking.
Adjacent to the secure pool is a pergola area with large Outback plate and grill gas BBQ with a 9kg gas bottle. The gas is free but you must clean the BBQ after use.
There is a table and chairs for your outside dining or a grassed area for your relaxation with 2 comfy Adirondack chairs.
Oh and pets can stay too - enquire with owner. An additional $10 charge per night will apply for short term stays. No furry friends are allowed on the furniture or beds.
