About the property

Bantam Cottage is a cosy, cute, 100 year old, pet friendly cottage and is the ideal house to make your home for a few days. The cafes, restaurants and wonderful shops of Berry are only a leisurely two minute stroll around the corner so just park and have a day or two car free.

The heart of the cottage is the sitting room which has a beautiful open fire, laid and just ready to light in winter. It is a cozy place to laze in front of with candles and a bottle of red wine or toast marshmallows with the kids.

There are beautiful polished timber floors throughout scattered with rugs for warmth. The kitchen has an oven, stove, microwave, all the utensils needed, and a range of basic pantry items are supplied.

The two bedrooms have queen beds which are made up with fresh linen and bedding and have electric blankets. Soft fluffy towels are also supplied.

The toilet and bathroom are separate with the bathroom having an easily accessible shower but no bath.

The front verandah looks out over the town to the hills behind and is a lovely place to watch the world go by while at the rear of the house is a large deck overlooking farmland and a quiet rural scene. This catches the morning sun and is a peaceful place to enjoy a morning tea or coffee.

Pets are welcome in the house and the back yard is fully fenced and secure with large shade trees.

Directly across the road is the wonderful Berry Sourdough Bakery with its delicious food, coffee and wood fired breads.

The wonderful shops, cafes and restaurants are only around the corner and 2 minutes walk away.

Gabby's reception centre is also only a two minute stroll down the road.

Pet friendly

A perfect family getaway - pets are welcome too.

Bring your furry best friend on holiday with you and stay in our homely cottage. With our easy to clean timber floors pets are welcome in the house to be a part of the family, sitting infront of the open fire or begging for a treat at the dining table. The back yard is a securely fenced, dog safe area set with large trees and lawn for playing ball games.

Berry is a dog friendly town so you can take your pet to many cafes so he isn't left home alone. There are two off leash areas close to the house and many lovely streets to go for walks admiring the gardens and houses.

Why Janet Walker chose Berry

We fell in love with the simplicity and history of this cottage when we first saw it. We lived here for several years with our young daughters enjoying the friendliness and intimacy of Berry before moving to a country property and intend to return to live here eventually.

Quaint and gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I stayed at Bantam Cottage in August for a weekend. We took our dogs and had a beautiful time there. It isn't just gorgeous, it's homely. I felt so comfortable.

The location was perfect. Nice and central to everything (including the amazing gelato shop il Locale). I will definitely be back to stay again. I cannot say enough nice things about Bantam Cottage. It truly was a perfect stay.
