Carcoar – a beautiful historic town classified by the NSW National Trust,
where the Belubula River runs through, the time of day is still tolled by bell, roosters crow faintly in the distance, and time just tends to stand still.
Situated in the heart of town is Arisaig – a c1840s heritage listed characterful cottage.
Believed to originally have been the town’s Barber shop and later the printing office for the Carcoar Chronicle newspaper, it’s been some years since the last beard was trimmed and an advert was placed in the local paper
Over 170 years later, Arisaig is now a charming and comfortable self-contained cottage.
The house is generously sized and features four bedrooms 3 double beds and 2 large single beds, a large living room, dining room, and a contemporary bathroom and kitchen. Whether you book for two or for more, you are guaranteed the whole house to yourself.
Making your self-catering getaway stress-free, the kitchen features a dishwasher, electric oven / gas stovetop, large fridge and utensils. The bathroom features a toilet, shower and bath, with an additional outdoor shower and toilet – perfect for rinsing off after stepping out of a refreshing dip in the private pool on a hot summers day.
Arisaig is Gaelic, meaning ‘safe place’, and is perfectly suited for your family holiday, a getaway with good friends or just to retreat with your significant other half.
With complimentary Wi-Fi access to the NBN, air conditioning, an open fireplace and wood heater, you are sure to find what you need to be comfortable.
Spend time playing with the kids in the generously sized yard, relax with a drink in hand by the pool, share a meal together around the large dining table, get engrossed in a good book sitting in the courtyard garden, play a board game by the fire, take in the fresh country air on an early morning walk or unwind on an evening stroll, marvel at the appeal of the many 19th century buildings, take a daring walk through the old train tunnel – whatever takes your fancy, there is much to make your stay enjoyable and memorable.
