Description

The Blacksmith's Cottage has seen a number of incarnations, including many years as a saw mill owners cottage. Now carefully restored and renovated it provides superb holiday accommodation for couples looking to enjoy all the attractions of the lower Fleurieu Peninsula.

Completely self contained including bath towels and bed linen beach towels not provided all you need to bring are your personal requirements. No need even to bring much in the way of food if you don't feel like cooking as there are several excellent places to dine in the nearby villages of Yankalilla and Normanville.

Tea, coffee and toiletries are not provided.

Please note: Weekend rates are the same as weekday rates.

Locality

The Fleurieu Peninsula region of South Australia is home to a wide range of attractions from premier food and wines to remote and rugged coast line. Accessible picnic areas and safe beaches make this area ideal for relaxing holidays while the more adventurous can enjoy top class bushwalking, diving and fishing activities.

The Blacksmith's Cottage is in one of the peninsula's premium locations at Second Valley. Quiet and secluded Gamlen Place is a small cul de sac in the original Randalsea section of the valley. Home to only two other restored cottages no.2 exudes charm and tranquillity.

Surrounded by desirable holiday attractions the cottage is a 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk to what has been described as South Australia's best beach.

Property

Built around 1860 the former blacksmith's cottage is the perfect place to enjoy a break. This exceptional four room stone cottage has all the charm of solid timber ceilings, polished hardwood floors, solid slate flagstones and antique claw foot bath,. Heating is by wood fired heater, and ducted reverse cycling airconditioning ensures you will never be too hot or cold. Dine alfresco on the verandah and soak up the ambience of the cottage style gardens. Enjoy the views over farmland down to the waters of St Vincent's Gulf as you cook up a feast on the barbecue patio or in the well equipped kitchen. Or wander 100 metres over to the award winning Leonard's Mill restaurant for superb fare.

Due to a deep steep sided creek running through the grounds this property is not suitable for children and we unfortunately cannot accept pets, much as we do love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quaint Cottage My Partner and I loved every bit of this Quaint old stone little cottage! It was private nestled in amongest English gardens. All the little touches of antiques made you feel at home! Fire was preset for arrival, which was just lovely! Definitely coming back to this hidden treasure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful property What I expected when booking this was a lovely old and rustic cottage that made me feel warm and cosy. What I got was so much more. The attention to detail was exemplary and the history and heritage was superb. Loved every expect of it and will make it a regular thing to spend a night or two there. If I was to complain about one thing it would be that the fire place doesn't have glass doors so you can't see the fire.
