York Cottage, built around 1936, was originally a grand gate house for a larger property. Since being subdivided it still retains 2 acres of beautiful, landscaped gardens overlooking glorious farming pastures framed with rolling green hills behind. The house features the Tudor Rose architectural motif, William Morris decor and amazing period features such as decorative doors, high ceilings, original wood panelling, intricate friezes and an impressive slow-combustion fireplace. All this and only a 5-minute drive to Bowral CBD and 10-minute drive to Centennial Vineyards.
The garden features a tennis court, croquet lawn, a pond, a miniature railway, small orchard, pavilion, peaceful nooks and beautiful rural views.
The Great Southern Railway line runs by the house, making it a train spotter's paradise. The occasional passage of the XPT and a few rambling freight trains add excitement and an air of romance to the country atmosphere.

We rented York Cottage for two nights as we had a family wedding in Bowral. It was fabulous to feel comfortable with the space in the house and to be able to walk around the grounds it was wonderful as a family group to feel like we were in our own family homes. We would like to have been able to stay longer.

A beautiful stay at York Cottage, the property was peaceful and relaxing. The kids loved the trains. A very big thankyou to the staff at Holiday Rental Specialists, each time I rang to speak with someone the staff were friendly and extremely helpful.
