Morton Cottage is set in the stunning gardens of "Netherhall" c.1903. The cottage used to be an artist studio, and prior to that, a barn. The garden has been lovingly preserved in the style of the era in the planting selection and 'Edna Walling-esque' design.

Themes are classic comfort and modern rustic, with quality linen, furnishings and decor, exposed beams in the cathedral ceiling, and French doors opening on to your verandah.

There is a slow combustion wood fire heater in the lounge, with all wood supplied. Laze on the rug and melt the stress away as you stare into the flames. Or curl up on the couch in front of the fire and pour yourself a good local drop. Read that book. Write that song.

The bedroom is a mezzanine loft overlooking the generously-proportioned lounge. The cosy queen bed has very comfy electric blankets. The bedroom has a bird's eye view over the garden.

The bathroom also has a garden view. There is a full-size clawfoot bath and a range of bubbles and salts to try while you soak out your stress. The floor is of Himalayan sandstone, with fossils visible. There is an instant heater in the bathroom for your comfort on colder nights.

Wander the gardens, listen to the birdsong. The cottage has DVDs, CDs and many paperbacks if you start one, you are welcome to take it home, jigsaw puzzles and games.

There are many birds about. Watch for the King Parrots. The male is red and green and the female mostly green with orange belly. Crimson rosellas, bowerbirds, whipbirds, and eastern spinebills are also frequent visitors.

In the warmer months, sit out on the verandah and watch the sunset. In the evening, take a walk to Glow Worm Glen torches supplied then come home and soak in the full-length claw-foot bath. Of course, all towels and linens provided, as well as a choice of aromatic or bubbly additions to your bathwater.

Bundanoon village and the oval where Brigadoon is held is only a short stroll away, with many treats and treasures to be discovered. There is a choice of good local cafes, pizza and Chinese within short walking distance, and if you'd prefer to stay in, the cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen with a gas cooktop and microwave oven. Some condiments are provided and there is an IGA on the next block.

Hire bikes to explore Morton National Park at Ye Olde Bicycle Shoppe or explore one of the many trails, such as 'Fairy Bower', on foot maps provided or enquire with your hosts as to availability for a guided walk.

There is a fully-equipped picnic backpack and also a picnic rug in the cottage and plenty of places in nearby Berrima, Bowral, Fitzroy Falls, Robertson and Mittagong to lay the rug under a tree and watch some kangaroos and maybe even spot a wombat there are many around. The autumn colours in the Southern Highlands are quite spectacular.

Your hosts, Brian and Juanita, live in the residence at the top of the garden, but the cottage is quite private with its own separate access off Victoria St. Complimentary parking on-site. Bundanoon Station is a short walk away, but your hosts will happily transport you and your luggage to/from the station or to the National Park walks.

Your baby is welcome BYO cot. Please note that the property is not suitable for mobile toddlers or children. There are open stairs, a fireplace which could cause serious burns, and a garden pond.

Please note that we have a minimum 2-night stay, but we are happy to accept a one-night stay at short notice 3 days or less. One night stays are $250 per night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, cosy and comfy We loved our stay and thank you Juanita for making us feel so welcome. Everything was so lovely and clean and so warm and cosy. There was even some port and chocolates to have in the evening. We enjoyed playing with puppies Enzo and Rupert too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible hosts, accommodation and stay Everything about our stay was perfect. I couldn't recommend this stayz more. My partner and I have used bnb's all over Europe and Australia and this was our favourite so far. Our hosts were very welcoming and even gave us a tour of the area. Beautiful accomodation with a fireplace and everything you could need. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish accommodation in Southern Highlands Morton Cottage ticks all the boxes for a relaxing break! From the initial contact it was clear that the emphasis was on making your stay as comfortable as possible. Host Juanita was on hand to offer help and advice re. places to visit, eating out, wine tasting etc. Having just spent a week here we can truly say that it was a lovely experience which will be remembered for a long time. However if you only have a few days here Do Not miss the glow worms- perhaps the most magical experience we have ever had- the wombat on the return wasn't bad either!! Lewis and Jeanne Freeman
