Tucked into the foothills of Mt Warning, near Murwillumbah, is this quaint country cottage which offers peace, privacy and mountain views. Set on 5 acres, adjacent to the Tweed River, the house accommodates up to six people in comfort, and is conveniently located just 4 minutes from Uki and 15 minutes from Murwillumbah.
The house is a two bedroom fully self-contained cottage with quality queen size beds. Visitors need only bring food supplies and the usual accessories for a stay in the country. We supply the linen, towels and some of the things you'll need for cooking (salt, pepper, oil, etc).
Consisting of two separate sections, the studio room has a very large living area, with one wall opening completely to catch the breezes in summer. It contains large, comfortable leather couches, the TV (including DVD and stereo) and one queen bed.
The main part of the house contains the kitchen (gas stove, microwave, fridge, all cutlery, pots, pans and utensils!), the lovely open fireplace (wood supplied too) and a mezzanine sleeping area with a single and a queen bed. This section also has a comfortable queen futon bed, if required. Please note that the stairs are very steep, so we don't recommend small children (under 5) being allowed upstairs.
The two parts of the house are adjacent but not connected, though they are covered by the pergola roof.
The cottage is just 4km from Uki Village, a warm and welcoming community of quirky characters. On Saturday morning, the Uki hall is busy with locals buying their weekly fresh produce, while the Uki Buttery Bazaar Markets take place on the third Sunday of the month. The cafe serves great food and coffee and there's a supermarket, fuel station and various other shops.
This is the ideal location if you want to climb Mt Warning, explore the Tweed Valley, Byron Bay and the Southern Gold Coast. In summer, the beaches from Kingscliff to Pottsville are within an easy half hour drive, though you may prefer to relax in the river and try to spot the local platypus, or wander through the shady grassland and gum trees on the property.
The property is fine as a romantic getaway for one couple but is just as ideal for two couples or a family. Maximum comfortable occupancy is 6 people.
