Historic Cottage on the Doorstep of Swan Valley and Guildford

Enjoy a relaxing stay in a historic house right on the doorstep of Perth's Wine and Food region, The Swan Valley.

Moultons Cottage is a Guildford landmark, built in 1841 and part of the Guildford Heritage Trail, staying here is to experience a little slice of history.

With a substantial outdoor deck overlooking the magnificent fields and Swan River, you can sit back and enjoy a fabulous local wine while watching the boats pass by.

Boasting a large family French provincial style kitchen/ dinning with features including an ice maker, coffee machine modern appliances and gas fireplace.

The house also has a large lounge room with open fire place, a sitting room with a pot belly stove and double French doors opening onto the large outdoor deck and gardens with ponds.

The open fireplaces are perfect to snuggle up to if the weather turns chilly with a glass of the local red or port and makes this an ideal winter getaway as well.

Step out of your door to experience the best of historic Guildford. A short walk to the Rose and Crown pub perfect for a Sunday afternoon with great food and live music. Stroll across Stirling Square to visit the Guildford Hotel which has been fully refurbished, restaurants, cafes and Antique Shops.

The Swan Valley Tourist office located less than 300m away in the old court house, can fill you in on all the latest and greatest the Swan valley has to offer.

Some of our favourites:

Ride out to Elmars brew house and have a nice cold pint and a basket of hots chips, then on the way back stop at The Ugly Duckling Winery for a fantastic platter and Rose.

Sample the Verdelho at Upper Reach and stay for lunch, then pop next door to pick up a bottle of Mann Champs.

Breakfast at Mandoon winery and Homestead Brewery on a Sunday morning, better just jump in the kayak and paddle up.

Enjoy Swan River, Perth and Surrounds

Keen to sight see around Perth City and Fremantle? But like the idea of being in a historic village of Perth? One of the great things about Guildford is that it is only 16kms from the city centre. The train station is a short 10min walk and the train runs directly into Perth city in about 20mins.

Stay on the same line and head straight down to Fremantle.

Perth is coming of age with the opening of Elizabeth Quay, small lane way bars and plenty of fantastic places to eat. From Guildford you can enjoy what Perth City has to offer with only a short train journey, or even take a taxi.

House Configuration

The house is a full four bedroom house, there is no linen cupboard pretending to be a bedroom in this house, and is as follows.

Bedroom 1 has a king size four poster bed and ensuite

Bedroom 2 upstairs has a queen size bed

Bedroom 3 downstairs has a pull out double sofa bed

Bedroom 4 has a king single, and a single bed

The lounge room sofa is a king single or double bed size, however I don't usually have linen for that so that would incur an extra charge.

There is a main bathroom with claw foot bath, shower and toilet. An ensuite bathroom with toilet and shower, and a separate toilet located on the deck.

All the rooms in the house open to either the verandah or deck and most through double french doors as was characteristic of the period. It is one of my most favourite things about the house.

Please Note: as this is an old house the oldest continual residence in WA and as such has been added to and joined onto over the years there is internal stairs some only one or two and two staircases.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Beautiful historic cottage sadly lacking love,overall cleanliness was rather poor and some furnishings badly need replacing.The sofa bed was extremely uncomfortable and the single bed moved on the floor.Location was great right in the heart of guildford.Fire wood only supplied from June so if its cold in May you wont be able to have a cosy fire as promised.The owner made us feel like we were an inconvenience when we contacted her about a few problems.Such a shame could be a lovely cottage with some TLC and a more personable owner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous character home. This was my second visit to Moulton's cottage. It's a bit like stepping back in time. The house is large and historic but homely and welcoming. Fully equipped with everything you could need. Friendly neighbours. Fabulous location, just a 2 minute stroll to the Rose and Crown for a pub lunch and a cold drink. Would like to stay again in winter to take advantage of the open fire.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful home to enjoy the region Truly enjoyed our stay and as we were over for a wedding had the bridal shower here as well. The furnishings also help to transport you back in time. Peaceful but close to public transport. Our family was able to relax and not be in each other's way. Needs a little tlc but owners will be there in Feb. loved every minute and especially love the back deck for breakfast. Thank you
