The welcoming fires and cosy snugness of Myall Cottage begins a journey into a rural past. This unique 3-bedroom cottage is surrounded by paddocks, red gums and a pastoral view from every window.

The complete absence of TV and Internet is a true escape. Ideal for families and couples who enjoy open fires, starry nights, and a rural location in a peaceful setting near Casterton and the Glenelg River.

The space
Myall Cottage sits in the middle of a Western District property reached only by a farm track and is framed by wide views of paddocks with grazing cows.

If you take the time to spend a few days, the Cottage will cast a spell as you live a slower pace of life in a different era.
It certainly suits couples but is even more ideal for families.
A rambling garden, paddocks to roam, games to play including musical instruments, paddock picnics to be had and if you wish to bring bikes, a well made 1 km track for safe riding all the way to the front gate and back.

Aunt Daphne, born in 1909, was the last to live in the Cottage which saw it's heyday in the 1920's to 1930's. You will find that not much has changed since. This 100 year old cottage retains all its original furniture and historic fittings so expect some degree of quirkiness. The simple kitchen and bathroom are well equipped but there are fires to light, farm gates to open and shut and you will be awoken to the sound of chortling of magpies.
The Cottage surrounds includes the Shearers Kitchen; the Old Orchard with fruiting trees; Shearers Huts; the Blacksmith Shop; the Gig Shed and the Woolshed, all dating from the 1900's.

You are free to explore this space as there will be no-one there but yourselves and of course, the cows and calves looking on curiously.

I do need to add that we feel the Cottage can only manage 4 guests at one time. We will always make an exception for families with a Grandparent so please ask!

During your stay

It can feel that, as Host, I am leaving you in an isolated setting and what if something goes wrong?

For some, that is the essence of this adventure.
For others used to a city environment, it can seem daunting.

In reality, I am 10 minutes drive away and available at all times. There is good Mobile Phone coverage at the Cottage and I can be contacted at all times. As well, there are directions as to how to get to us provided in the Information Folder in the Cottage.

I will try to be guided by you, as I can visit you everyday of your stay or leave you to enjoy peace and quiet if that is what you need.
Please let me know what makes you feel comfortable and I will fit in with your plans.
