This cottage was constructed as a single men’s quarters known as the “Men’s Kitchen”. It contained bunkroom style accommodation for the single station hands, as well as a large dining room, kitchen and the cook’s quarters. In later years it became a home for various members of the Hawker family, including Lady Hawker.
Today this cottage offers accommodation for up to 10 people – perfect for a group of friends or large families. It contains four bedrooms (2 bedrooms x 1 Queen, 2 bedrooms x 1 Queen with 1 Single each), 2 bathrooms, kitchen and large sitting/dining room. The sitting room has a wood fire, air conditioning and TV/DVD player for quiet nights in, while the large garden is perfect for games and BBQs. All bedding and towels are provided, along with provisions for a full country breakfast (e.g. eggs, bacon, juice, cereal). A floorplan of this cottage can be found below.
For larger groups, additional accommodation is available in other heritage cottages located a short walk up the hill.
