In a peaceful setting, just a moment’s walk through the gardens to the river, Summer Cottage is the perfect getaway for winter and summer with cosy wood fire and private sun-deck with BBQ. Unwind to the soundtrack of native birdlife or help yourself to a kayak from the boatshed and head down the river to the stunning and deserted white sands of Takou Bay.
Summer Cottage guests enjoy the exclusive use of their very own private Summer House hidden away in the gardens. The Summer House is tucked away in a secluded spot in the gardens just a few minutes walk from the cottage, and with its beautiful alfresco claw foot bath, pot belly stove, gas bbq, tables and chairs, it's the perfect place for a romantic evening soaking under the stars, or a relaxing bbq with family and friends.
Similar in design and layout to River Cottage and with one adjoining wall, Summer Cottage is ideal for a couple or up to 4 people looking for a peaceful getaway.

Luxuriate in the king bed with cosy linen, feather duvets and blankets; snuggle into the comfy furniture and enjoy the perfectly appointed kitchen and bathroom with eco-friendly toiletries; and wake up to dappled sunlight through the trees, the sound of birds and absolute peace and tranquility.
