Looking for a charming cottage stay? Then I think we’ve found just the ticket. The Cottage at Dunmore Farm was built in the 1870s from river red gums on the property. Thoughtfully renovated, the owners have preserved the character of the cottage whilst carefully blending the old with new.
The home is the passion project of hosts and owners, Bec and Angus. Originally a weekender the home soon became a full-time project. Angus always had a passion for the land whilst Bec was looking to ignite her creative pursuits – the cottage provided the perfect canvas.
At The Cottage, you’ll find character and memory, with handpicked furnishings that tell a story. There are three well-appointed bedrooms – two with queen beds and the third with king-single bunks.
Though we must say, two aspects we love are the tastefully renovated bathroom and the cosy lounge with its wood fire. The bathroom features an antique French chandelier bought from a dealer in South Australia and the original Victorian clawfoot bath which makes it the perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon soak!
The cottage’s kitchen features an original wood stove (as well an electric oven and convection stove for you modern folk). Outside there’s also a gas Weber for a relaxed summer bbq.
The working cattle farm is peaceful and bucolic, and a stay here feels like an escape to a simpler time. We recommended spending summers in the garden enjoying long-lunches or cooler days in the lounge, snuggled up by the fire with a book from the library.
Dunmore is located on the foothills of the Victorian Alps and only 30 minutes from the King Valley wine region. Making it the perfect base to venture out and sample some of the regional delights. Bliss!
