Why April McFadden chose Bathurst
I was drawn to Bathurst for the great country and community feel of the town. I fell in love with this house when I first walked in and bought it immediately. I intend to retire to this beautiful, character filled home and love the convenience of its location.
What makes this House unique
I love the high ceilings with the ceiling roses, the double brick walls that help keep the house warm in winter and cool in summer, and the character of this house built around 1890. The location is ideal, walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the town centre.

Great location but ..
Great location, but the property is a bit dated with cracked walls and old carpets. It should be listed as a 1.5 bathroom home rather than 2 bathrooms.
Hi Arnab, thank you for your feedback. I’m trusting the edits I made to the HomeAway site now indicate 1.5 bathrooms.
The home is 130 years old and renovated. There is always a bit of movement in this type of house in this area so small cracks open and close. The carpets were laid four years ago and are professionally steam cleaned every six months.
Fantastic Little Cottage
Fantastic little cottage. Very central to everything in Bathurst. walking distance to great coffee shops and pubs.
Thank you Bec for your review. I’m very pleased you enjoyed your stay in our Charming Central Cottage and it’s great location.
Comfort and convenience in the CBD
The property is warm and comfortable and within walking distance of parks, shops and cafes. Good value for money.
We had work around Bathurst and needed somewhere to stay for 2 weeks.
The availability was excellent got in straight away and the house was awesome. Always kept the fire stoked so kept the place plenty warm. Would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for your review James. Yes, the fireplace really makes the house cozy and inviting. Please come back any time.
Property was ok. Very misleading photos.
Photos shown were deliberately misleading. The owner was not particularly interested in this and entered into a texting conversation rather than just calling to solve the problem. It all worked ‘ok’ In The end, but overall was extremely mislead by the pics (which she said she’d amend) and by the rather inhospitable manner of the owner.
Hi Damian, I was surprised to receive your review as the last contact we had you texted everything was “great, thank you”. In regards to misleading photos I took down the extra photo of the master bedroom where the bed was styled with the throw blanket on the end which you assumed was a different bed. All photos on the site are a very accurate portrayal of how the property looks.
The description of the cottage clearly explains that there are 2 QS beds, with the option of a third QS bed with advance notice and an additional fee. You didn’t request the extra bed until you arrived, which I provided at no extra cost.
I respond to guests via their referred method of communication. If a guest texts, I respond via text. If a guest requests a phone call, I call. I would have happily phoned you or answered a call from you if you felt we needed to speak in person.
I also don’t normally accept pets but allowed you to bring your 2 dogs with you, so I am surprised you describe me as inhospitable. I think I went the extra mile to provide you with everything you wanted.
Great little cottage
Cosy little cottage, within walking distance of everything we needed in town. Friendly and responsive host. We’ll definitely be back.
Thank you Rebecca, I’m very pleased you enjoyed your stay and the ideal location of our Charming Central Cottage. I look forward to having you stay again.
