Enjoy the fire place during winter as you relax on the chesterfield or sit looking out from the bay window at the elm or sitting on the veranda just like old times telling stories and watching the world go by.

The spacious garden is filled a beautiful shady elm in summer, Australia gums, cypress trees and palms so you could be anywhere in the world. A lot of natural fauna to attract the birds and you will see an occasional kangaroo grazing in the back yard or in the paddocks nearby.

Just bliss
Loved my 2 nights here. Nearly everything you could ask for. Big huge comfy 4 poster bed, fire place. Bedrooms are set up great for families or couples. Not the worlds most comfiest bath but it did the trick and was fabulous to soak in. Lovely part of the world. Kind and thoughtful hostess.

5/5 Excellent

Ambience Plus
We absolutely loved Pearls, cottage. The ambience was a pleasant surprise. Beautiful equipped but with timeless furniture and the log fire was a lovely touch, which was ready to go when we arrive. Complimentary breakfast fruit and chocolate, coffee and milk supplied. We can’t wait to rebook for another weekend getaway. Thanks Halina.

4/5 Good

Bit of a pearl
Lovely old cottage beautifully furnished. Beds amazingly comfortable. Beautiful surrounds. Did think a B&B provided breakfast each day but Pearl only provides breakfast kit on arrival. Cereal only enough for half our stay. However this is what fine print says. So we can't complain. Only had bikes for two. Would certainly consider another stay. Thanks.
