The space
COVID 19
We are thoroughly cleaning and sanitising the house and all linens between every guest stay.

THE COTTAGE:
Offers the very best of creature comforts with luxury touches. The main bedroom features a king size bed (as pictured) while the second bedroom features three singles or can be configured into a king bed and single upon your request. There is an additional single bed in the curtained living area for a 6th guest. Please note there is an additional $50 fee for a 6th guest.

WEDDING ACCOMMODATION:
The cottage and gardens are available to book for wedding parties to stay the evening before your wedding, to prepare the morning of your wedding and to stay your wedding night. You are welcome to use the award winning gardens for photography. There is an additional fee of $500 for wedding accommodation. This covers the use of consumables by extra people onsite involved in your wedding preparations and our time to be onhand to assist with parking and any queries. There is also a cap on the number of vehicles that can park in our carpark and strict parking arrangements for onstreet parking. Message the host to enquire.

THE HOBBY FARM:
2 x small citrus orchards, 1 x veggie patch, several chicken coops & a paddock. If you'd like a tour of the hobby farm, just ask as we will need to accompany you when in these areas of the property.

RELAX & soak in the cast iron bath, snuggle up to someone special in front of the fireplace (only available during Winter months), enjoy a BBQ in the Mediterranean courtyard or wander through the expansive award-winning gardens set against beautiful rainforest teaming with birdlife. When you've explored the cottage, enjoy a walk through Wambina Nature Reserve 50m up the road, catch some waves at Terrigal Beach, watch a film at the Historic Avoca Beach Cinema, shop till you drop at Erina Fair Shopping Centre or simply enjoy this private get-away to relax, recharge & rejuvenate.

LOCATION:
The beautiful hidden suburb of Matcham is only 10 minutes drive to some of the Coast's most pristine beaches. Surrounded by acreage properties and lush bushland and wildlife, you'd never know you're in the heart of the Central Coast. Within a short drive you can enjoy countless activities which will appeal to the whole family. Erina Fair is home to all your shopping needs and Hoyts Cinemas. Patrolled Terrigal beach is perfect for children & offers fine dining restaurants, cafes, ice creameries, boutique shopping, surf lessons, diving, fishing charters, bars & beer gardens.
