Stay and experience this piece of living history

Englishwoman Antoinette Pignon Powle built this charming cottage in the 1860s, making it one of Bruny Island's oldest homes. A single Christian lady with a literary streak, she would ride out from the house to her jobs as governess for the children of North Bruny's late 19th century gentry.

Originally named Oakchester, the house is known to locals as Mr Wisby's Cottage - when Antoinette made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, she asked her neighbour to look after the house. She never returned. Her grave is in Jerusalem's Protestant cemetery.

The previous owners have lovingly restored the cottage, inside and out. Looking down on the house today, little has changed from the view Miss Powle would have seen, riding back from her day's work at Dennes Point or Barnes Bay. The cottage nestles in its valley, cleared land running up the slope to Killora Road and away to the creek that flows down to Shelter Cove.

Ten acres of cleared land surrounds the cottage and is complete with wallabies and a menagerie of associated wildlife.

With its fascinating history, attractive rural atmosphere and painstaking, sensitive restoration, this unique North Bruny property is a wonderful retreat for a romantic couple, artist or writer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning cottage ! We had a wonderful stay in this authentic 1800's cottage. Very peaceful surroundings and stunning sunsets. The interior of this cottage is just gorgeous. As we visited in June it was quite cold however the cottage has free standing heaters and electric blanket but do bring warm clothes with you !! My husband and I loved it and plan to return. Edwin was pleasant and easy to correspond with. Highly recommend this property.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely old cottage in a pretty location This is a warm, cosy, beautifully restored English cottage with an interesting history, which has everything you need to be comfy. It's a short drive to Dennes Point which has a beautiful beach and gorgeous gallery/cafe. It's in North Bruny and handy to the ferry terminal. Bruny is so small it doesn't take long to get anywhere you'd want to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bruny Island Cottage We loved our stay at Bruny Island Cottage -it was warm and cosy inside - and the dogs enjoyed rolling in the sheep poo outside ( without the sheep present!). Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property! What a lovely and cosy place, my partner and I stayed at this lovely property for 2 nights. It was our first visit to Bruny and we were not disappointed at all with this beautiful place. We were especially most impressed with our accommodation, it is a beautiful clean English style character cottage located in a secluded paddock. Especially, the comfort factor in this cottage is outstanding. The bed is super comfy, the house is spotlessly clean and the owners go the extra mile with high quality linen and appliances. We would love to stay there again!
