On the shores of Lake Alexandrina, Nanda Farm Holiday Cottage is a great escape from city life. Full of varying birdlife at different times of the year, and with changes of weather, the view of the vast lake is incredible. Very peaceful, the only noise is from the birds and cows. Relax and enjoy the ever-changing lake views from the front porch. Pat a cow, read a book, paint, indulge in photography.... whatever takes your fancy. Or you can try your luck fishing from the jetty BYO fishing rods. You can even launch your own small tinny or kayak and explore the lake. The lake is shallow and great for a dip - just bring some reef shoes to protect your feet. Or do nothing and just enjoy the peace and quiet.
Accommodation is in the original stone cottage built in 1855 but recently refurbished. This sleeps up to 6, with 2 Queen size beds in 2 large separate bedrooms and 2 king single beds in the games room. Bed linen and bath towels are supplied, but please bring your own pillows. When booking, please indicate how many beds you would like us to make up for you.
The bathroom is newly refurbished and has a shower over the bathtub.
The cottage has great character, with original timber floorboards and stone walls. The living room has a new combustion fire with free firewood supplied and comfortable sofas to lounge around on. There's also a large flat screen TV and DVD player. The living rooms have air conditioners, there are pedestal fans in the bedrooms and additional electric heaters are also supplied.
For a bit of fun, the games room has a small pool table which converts into an air hockey table. The country style kitchen has a new stove and microwave, so you don't ever have to leave the cottage if you don't want to.
If you don't feel like cooking, there are a few options in the area: Clayton Bay has Sails, for good takeaway and eat-in meals, the town of Milang has a bakery, a takeaway food shop and the Milang Hotel, and there are restaurants at some of the wineries in Langhorne Creek as well as a great pub. The wineries at Langhorne Creek and Currency Creek are about a 20 minute drive from Point Sturt in different directions.
Point Sturt projects into Lake Alexandrina, which is a large fresh water lake of around 650 square kilometres in size. With Lake Albert it forms part of the Lower Lakes system at the end of the River Murray, located just north of the Coorong. It's a beautiful part of South Australia for you to explore.
The townships of Strathalbyn and Goolwa are each about 25 minutes away from Nanda Farm. Spend some time fossicking through the shops in these towns and discovering the surrounding countryside.
Point Sturt is just over an hour's drive from the Tollgate at the bottom of the SE Freeway. Turn off at Mt Barker, go through Strathalbyn and Milang then drive south by the lake toward Clayton Bay. When you get to Point Sturt Rd turn left - it's the only road before Clayton Bay. Nanda Farm is 7 km down Point Sturt Rd, on the left, number 1035.
Your pet can join you on your holiday, but must be kept under effective control at all times as Nanda is a working farm with stock. A maximum of 2 dogs is allowed. Please bring everything you need for your dog, including towels. Dogs are not allowed on the furniture or beds and must not be left on the property unattended. Local eateries, such as Sails at Clayton Bay, the Pier Hotel at Milang and the Bridge Hotel at Langhorne Creek, allow dogs on leads in their outside dining areas. Please contact us by email if you would like to bring your pet with you.
Please note: Any additional guests added after the initial booking is made will be charged a minimum of 2 nights' stay.
