The Cottage enjoys a breathtaking position right on the banks of the Barrington River with an outlook over working river flats which change colour with the seasons. Sit on the verandah, listen to sounds of the river and overlook the magnificent Bucketts Mountain Range, all of which add to the unique atmosphere of the Cottage.

We both loved the few days spent at the cottage. We particularly appreciated the wide verandah with comfortable outdoor dining; the modern bathroom and good quality kitchen appliances and utensils. The sense of history has been maintained with the high ceilings, old wooden floorboards and original windows. There are lovely local walks, including down to the river that adjoins the property. We also visited and walked in Gloucester Tops and shopped in the charming village of Gloucester. We plan to return for a longer stay.
