Berta's Cottage Berry

Family-friendly holiday home in Berry
Located on a quiet country lane 4 minutes from the quaint township of Berry and the iconic Seven Mile Beach, this well-appointed, comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage overlooks a dairy farm with rolling green pastures and distant hills.

Berta's cottage sleeps up to 6 people. Quality linen and towels are included, and many extra touches to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The fully-enclosed garden features a wisteria covered gazebo with wood burning BBQ, lawn, a herb garden, fruit trees and fragrant flowers.

Berry is a vibrant village with a diverse range of cafes & boutiques and is close to many activities including walks, swimming and surfing, fishing, canoeing, wine tasting, markets, great restaurants and stunning rural scenery.

The two double bedrooms open on to the north-facing verandah at the front of the house with outdoor furniture - the perfect spot to enjoy the peace and quiet and spectacular rural views while enjoying a freshly brewed coffee or glass of wine. The third bedroom with 2 single beds overlooks the farm next door.

The well equipped modern kitchen boasts a country pantry equipped with a coffee machine and pantry essentials including oil, specialty tea and coffee.

The lounge room offers comfortable lounges, recycled and eclectic furniture with a cozy combustion fire perfect for cool Winter evenings, and air conditioning for the warmer months.

Two bathrooms are offered with luxurious toiletries, one with a walk in shower, the other you may enjoy a leisurely bath looking out the large picture window.

Berry is a delightful popular holiday destination with wonderful cafes and shopping. Don't forget a visit to the Berry Markets (4th Sunday of the month), there are other markets each week in nearby towns. Take a drive to nearby attractions including Kiama, Jervis Bay, the Kangaroo Valley, Cambewarra Mountain lookout, or for the more adventurous, the Coast walk from Gerringong to Kiama - the views will take your breath away.

Wineries and restaurants abound in this beautiful region. In Berry enjoy casual meals at the Il Locale Gelato cafe, Milkwood cafe or the Garden, and dinners at the Hungry Monkey, South on Albany, or Bussola. In Gerroa we love seafood at the Blue Swimmer Restaurant, in Gerringong at the Italian Bambinos or Sea Vista, and in Milton we love the local fresh produce served at St Isidore restaurant.

Another great stay at Berta’s
Really glad we returned to Berta’s as it was as good as we remembered. Excellent rural location just a short drive to Berry. Comfy and cosy. Our dog’s favourite holiday destination. We will return.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful semi-rural home
We had a midweek break here, two weeknights. The property is close to Berry, ample parking and space, a nice fireplace for winter, and a lot of living space in the house. Well equipped kitchen, too. A nice quiet area.

5/5 Excellent

Berta's is Better
4 great friends stayed for the weekend. It was so lovely to have a 3 bed, 2 bath cottage that was not compact. It was spacious, not cluttered and most importantly warm. Beds were super comfy too. 4 min drive to Berry Central so it was quite convenient too. Would stay again

4/5 Good

Betha's Cottage is a great base from which to explore the Illawarra ... lots to see and do
The cottage was near perfect for our needs during a three night stay with our dog. It's only a short drive to Berry with its wonderful variety of cafes and restaurants. The lovely view across to the mountains from the bedrooms was one of the reasons for renting, along with the Cottage being dog friendly, and having received lots of good reviews from previous renters. There was a slight negative for us in that the property is not in a totally rural setting as we'd expected. If you're sitting on the front verandah to enjoy a bbq there's a background hum of the traffic on the main highway some distance away.) The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms spacious; the bathrooms are modern with good water pressure and hot water; and the kitchen is well equipped, complete with a proper expresso machine. :) The backyard is a good size with a medium height fence. During our stay the Cottage was in need of a little extra TLC as the windows were definitely overdue for a clean inside and out, along with the cobwebs. Overall a very relaxing few days holiday. Thank you. :)

5/5 Excellent

Peace and comfort
3rd or 4th time at Berta’s and it never disappoints.
