The Bradshaw Cottage

Adults-only cottage with free breakfast and spa tub

I have taken to cleaning the cottage after every stay extensively cleaning all surfaces and ammenities using sterilising agents for your security and covid safety.

Once the Gardeners Quarters of a farming family, this cottage has been lovingly restored to accommodate 2 people looking for a romantic private getaway with all the comforts you could need.
The exterior has the influence of a Miners Cottage with its own private deck with covered HEATED OUTDOOR SPA.
In contrast, the interior is modern but maintaining an Old World charm.
The cottage is fully self-contained with provisions for a continental breakfast including free range eggs, country style bread or muffins and fresh plunger coffee. The Cottage has a beautiful character WOOD HEATER, queen size wrought iron bed, plush quilt and plenty of comfy blankets, relaxing couch and arm chair, plasma/TV, DVD's/CD's to choose from,a CD player with ipod dock, USB and card mode. Radio, magazines, local historical books and games.
Kitchen table set for 2, fridge/freezer, microwave, stove/oven, toaster, a selection of tea/coffee/hot chocolate provided.
Walk in shower, luxurious towels, hair dryer, guests toiletries. Reverse cycle air-conditioner/heater.
Outside garden area with table to enjoy the morning sun & private back patio to enjoy the afternoon quiet.

Off street parking.
Walking distance (460 metres) to local wineries/restaurants, shops, bakery.

This is a wonderful private cottage which will have you wanting to come back for more of the Bradshaw cottage experience.

Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Not up to scratch for the price charged
The cottage was lovely, great location and attention to detail for some smaller items was great, however given the price that was charged, it was disappointing. The amenities listed stated their was wifi, however no instructions for the wifi and password were left in the cottage. I messaged the host and never got a reply until we were checking out 2 days later. We then resorted to watching DVDs instead, however there wasn’t even a remote for the DVD player to fast forward or rewind as necessary. The spa jets wouldn’t work, and the amenities listed also said there would be a hairdryer available which there was not. I don’t think this property is worth the price being charged by the host.

5/5 Excellent

Home away from home
Relly nice hosts, very homey, very comfortable.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Beautiful property in ideal location but sadly cleaning doesn’t seem to include dusting at all. The entire property had dust everywhere resulting in up having to dose up on antihistamines. The property also hasn’t been maintained overly well, we arrived to the toilet tap turned off only to realise when we turned on that it continually leaked. Shower sprayed in several different directions due to poor attachment fitting & spa jets did not work. We would have contacted the owner about the spa if it hadn’t have been for the fact when we arrived he mentioned he was heading away for a few days so we felt there would be no local support anyway. Could be a gorgeous property if only it was well maintained and cleaned thoroughly.

5/5 Excellent

Cute cottage walking distance to shops
A very cute cottage perfect for a couples getaway. Walking distance to shops, restaurants etc.

2/5 Poor

Dated property not worth the cost
We always have a good time and are not that fussy but this place lacked care and attention. There was some stuff left for us but it seemed to be based on provisions left by previous guests including rotting fruit. There was no milk and no matches even though the gas stove required it. The wifi was a mystery and it was only that the owner was next door that we learned the passcode which never worked anyway. The spa was luke warm, slimey and the air pump obviously needed replacing as it was very weak. There was no messages or instructions how to use things and it was very hard to contact the owners. (The phone number was to someone else). The bathroom needs re-doing. It was obviously originally nicely decorated but needs a makeover.
