Description

Whaleback Cottage Anketell Forest

Whaleback Cottage is the perfect companion to our well-loved Tor Cottage. Perfect for couples or small families it features a separate bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a cosy lounge with amazing views and wood-fire, and a well equipped handmade cottage kitchen. Both the bedroom and kitchen have double sliding doors opening to the northern deck and another door from the kitchen leads to the eastern porch and down to the outdoor rock platform fireplace.

Like Tor Cottage, Whaleback Cottage is very private and secluded. Each cottages is hidden away at least 300m from the nearest building.

Walk behind the cottage onto the head of Whale Rock for your own private vista overlooking endangered wetlands and the rolling hills of the New England. Laze on the northern deck lounges and gaze up into the private boulder and forest valley. Catch the morning sun or watch the moonrise over Kissing Rock from the eastern deck or outdoor campfire. Relax indoors and view the world through stunning picture windows. There is something for the eye everywhere you look.

Almost all the furniture in Whaleback Cottage from the solid timber queen bed to the delightful kitchen, dining table and deck lounges are handmade by Steve on the property from local salvaged trees including stringy bark, cyprus pine and pin oak.

Camping:

Whaleback Cottage has its own private camping or van space for extra guests who bring their own. This campground is not available for normal hire, only with Whaleback Cottage booking. Can accommodate two large tents, vans or campers and is easy to access.

Dogs are welcome We do not have a fenced area but we do allow dogs inside with you. Please bring feed bowls and bedding for your canine friends. Please keep dogs on a leash when walking the property for the safety of wildlife and your animal and do not leave do not leave your dog alone in the cabin. Some dog sitting available if you wish to take in the local sights without Fido. Please enquire with your booking

Locality

Bolivia Hill and Deepwater are part of the northern New England Tablelands.

Only 25mins south of Tenterfield, 45mins north of Glen Innes or 2hrs west of Grafton, Anketell Forest is near dozens of vineyards, a number of national parks and nature reserves sub-tropical to sub-alpine and many historic and heritage areas.

Fishing, fossicking, food and wine and bush-walking are all nearby.

Property

Anketell Forest is managed as a wildlife refuge and is an integral part of the vital Deepwater/Bolivia Hill bio-region and wildlife corridor linking the north eastern coastal ranges with the western slopes. Its rugged and beautiful hills are home to a multitude of rare species including many listed as vulnerable or endangered.

Enjoy bush-walks, bird-watching and botany. Commission a piece of Anketell Forest furniture made by Steve from fallen hardwood salvaged from the property and milled on-site. And if Tor Cottage is booked when you want to stay, enquire about the availability of our other accommodation: Whaleback Cottage.
