We have a dog-proof fenced yard connected to the rear of the cottage, and at the front, 2 acres of secure open space where dogs or children can have a good run around to let off steam after a long trip in the car.
An additional QS bedroom and full bathroom (shower over bath) can be made available for larger groups, or used as a small separate unit with separate entrance (sub to negotiation).
The Shoalhaven region has become famous for many quality wineries, some with their own restaurants, and some offering jazz events, local exhibitions etc, as well as many quality restaurants and cafes including the world renowned Rick Stein's at Bannisters, in Mollymook, and weekend markets, galleries and museums.
Very conveniently situated within 20 minutes' driving distance of many beautiful Shoalhaven/Jervis Bay beaches, National Parks and bushwalking trails, also Wandandian rainforest and Wandandian Creek, waterfalls and lookouts, such as George Boyd Lookout and Granite Falls.

Located at the centre of the Shoalhaven, Wandandian village was first established as a postal district in 1860, and has a rich history. The village takes its name from the Wandandian people, the traditional owners of much of the region. The Aboriginal meaning of 'Wandandian' (originally Wandrawandian) is 'home of lost lovers'.
