Description

The Spinney is a beautiful 1940s Bowral cottage renovated with luxury, warmth & stylishly decorated with eclectic touches. Set on over half an acre and nestled into the western side of Mt Gibraltar half way between Mittagong and Bowral, this North facing cottage, bathed in sunlight is an enchanting property, perfect for weekends away or longer stays. Half an acre of lush Highlands gardens with over 35 Camellia species, mostly in bloom all year round. The drive way id greeted with a silver birch grove, a magnificent old Magnolia tree and if your lucky enough to stay over summer - a beautiful Jackaranda tree - always full of purple bloom over Christmas. The Spinney has 3 double bedrooms - 2 queens, one king that can be two singles - each bedroom has its own bathroom, one of which has a bath - so 3 Bathrooms

The Spinney is an overflow of Yolk Interiors, situated in Dirty Janes antique emporium & market place in Bowral, with over 60 stall holders & collectors. Yolk specialises in rustic decorator furniture & nic nacs with our main focus being vintage lamps and custom made lamp shades. Just about everything in The Spinney is available for purchase, so if you fall in love with it, it can be yours to take home with a phone call.

The cottage is furnished in an eclectic country style, with formal dining, sitting and living rooms in addition to the three bedrooms. The ducted heating system ensures even warmth throughout the house. The half acre cool climate garden features an array of mature trees, Camellia collection and colourful shrubs at every turn.

Cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen, relax, fall asleep reading a book on the lounge in front of the fire; or stay busy visiting the many cafes, antique stores and wineries dotted throughout the region.

The property is best suited to the appreciative types, perfect for the girls getaway weekend, great for wedding weekends, or for a few couples to escape the city and soak up the beauty that is the The Spinney in all is quirky beauty & the Highlands - all year round, enjoy our seasons. Not particularly child friendly due to all the decorator items that are not for small hands. Not suggested for pets due to location and gates onto road - apologies

Up to six guests can be accommodated, Main queen bed has attached ensuite, second Queen bed with its own bathroom & bath to soak in & third bedroom can be 2 singles or a king with a third bathroom.

The Spinney is like visiting your quirky best friends house in the country - relaxed, casual, comfy & pleasing on the eye. We love white bed linen, duck down pillows & fluffy white towels. We love a warm fire, a walk in the country & a meander through town shopping & finishing up with a nice meal & good company

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait to return We stayed at The Spinney for two nights as we were in Bowral for a wedding. There were four adults and two kids and we all fit comfortably into the gorgeous house. Everything about this property is deliberate and thoughtful, from each carefully appointed piece of furniture to the plush cotton bedding and towels, and the lovely Sukin body products. The house was spotlessly clean. It really is a decorators delight, and I wanted to buy every lamp in there. The house has so many windows, so the abundant greenery outside can be seen from every room, making the house feel light and airy. There is garden all around, so the house feels private and quiet, despite being conveniently close to a main road. I absolutely loved this house, and while we were there in spring, I definitely hope to visit again in winter and light the fire and sit on the couch with a glass of red. I would add, that this house probably isn't the right choice if you've got kids who like to run around and pull things off shelves. The beautiful pieces of art and decor are for "looking and not touching" as I had to repeatedly remind my 3 year old. However, the garden is absolutely perfect for looking for Fairies. This house would be perfect for a few friends heading to Bowral for a long weekend, with a fabulous kitchen so you can stay in and cook, or a short drive away to fabulous cafes. Sal was amazing, she even lets us have an early check in so we could get ready for the wedding without being rushed. I could speak more highly of the Spinney experience. Stay here... I will definitely be returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cosy Cottage My 2 daughters, my son-in-law and I stayed 2 nights at this very well located and comfortably styled cottage. Prior to our visit, Sal had provided us with a detailed email of the property and neighborhood which made finding the cottage very easy. From the moment we walked in I knew I had made the right choice with this property and we didn't want to leave the cottage.The best features of the cottage were the fire place and the 3 bathrooms. Getting dressed for the wedding was seamless as we all had separate bathrooms.Thanks Sal will definitely be back!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Absolutely beautiful - highly recommend The Spinney is gorgeous! It has been decorated so beautifully. We had lovely soaps, fresh towels, linen and plenty of bits and pieces in the fridge and cupboards on arrival. I would highly recommend staying here. It had central heating and a lovely fire place in the lounge room. The road is a little busy but the house definitely makes up for it. What a wonderful stay and fantastic property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous place to stay. The Spinney is an ideal place to spend a couple of days while exploring the Southern Highlands. The house was everything we could have wished for. Beds were so comfortable ,lots of fluffy towels . Kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed plus more. Although there were 2 log fires , it was not the weather to light them. The perfect solution was the central heating. To come in from our adventures to a lovely warm house was great. Overall feel of the Spinney is welcoming. homely and relaxed.
