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 A slice of heaven, with blissful solitude We often stay in the Southern Highland area, as our favourite location. This stay at Morton Cottage was among the very best we have encountered so far. Extremely clean, well appointed and excellent romantic hideaway. Juanita and Brian were the perfect (and friendly) hosts, ensuring that we were happy. Highly recommended. Rog
