History and internal layout
New Life Cottage owes it's name to the fact that the house was an old maternity hospital dating back to 1890, and was picked up and moved on a truck from the nearby suburb of St Johns Wood to it's present location. It is also located on a road which is a sacred Aboriginal path to Mount Cootha - called the place of the Honeybee Dreaming. So lots of history.
Accommodation is as follows:
1 Queen bed in the main bedroom
2 Queen bed in bedroom 2
3 Single beds in bedroom 3 plus trundle bed if necessary
4 Port-a-cot available free of charge for those with a little one on request
