RELAX & UNWIND in our self-contained, well-appointed cottage in the serene and beautiful Bega Valley.
Stroudover Cottage is a contemporary, two-bedroom, purpose-built guest house in a quiet setting, providing self-catering holiday accommodation to discerning guests who expect the comforts of home, while enjoying a relaxing holiday in the beautiful countryside of the Bega Valley. The cottage is located on a fully fenced six acre property and offers spectacular pastoral views to the surrounding mountains.
Stroudover Cottage is located near Bemboka at the foot of Brown Mountain, two hours drive from Canberra and about 40-50 minutes drive to the dog-friendly beaches of the Sapphire Coast making it an ideal base to explore the local attractions...and then escape from the hubbub to the tranquility of the property.
Stroudover Cottage is a dog-friendly property and you are welcome to bring along your well-trained companion dogs, but we ask that you bring your dog's own bedding and that flea/tick treatments and vaccinations are current. Dogs are allowed inside the cottage, if they are allowed in your own home. However, regardless of their home 'rights', they are not allowed on the furniture, or in the bedrooms of the cottage.
The gardens of Stroudover Cottage and the whole 6 acre property of Stroudover are fully fenced, providing you with peace of mind if your dog is an escape artist.
Please note that dogs must be supervised at all times.
This means, so that there are no misunderstandings, dogs are not left alone in the cottage whilst the owner pops out for the day, nor are they left alone, either for the day or just generally loose, in either the cottage gardens or 2 acres of paddock surrounding the cottage.
While staying at the cottage, you can also indulge in a multi-course gourmet meal or take part in special cooking events. These are arranged through correspondence prior to arrival. For more details contact the owner.
For your comfort, smoking is not allowed in the cottage, but you may smoke on the verandah, if you wish.
Our style at Stroudover Cottage is luxury rural country and as such our accommodation is not suited for children under 12 years of age.

There is also a radio/CD player, a TV and DVD player, and numerous books and games for our guests' entertainment.
Large north-facing windows, one with a glass sliding door out to the verandah, provide stunning views of the mountains. When the sun shines, a 5kW solar power generation system supplies clean, green electricity to the cottage; and solar panels on the roof provide your hot water from the 20,000 litre rainwater tank.
