About the property

The cottage overlooks paddocks with dairy cattle, sheep, wild kangaroos and emus. There is fantastic bird watching - 45 species of birds have been identified including blue wrens and robins. Sorry but we do not accept dogs.

It is a peaceful retreat while still close to Margaret River and Witchcliffe and located on the same property as Swallows Welcome Art Studio. It is just a 500m walk from the cottage to visit Patricia Negus' working Art Studio/Gallery or just wander around the lovely cottage gardens and have a look inside the unique mud brick Chapel of the Flowers to view Patricia's paintings of the wildflowers of the south-west.

Beautiful country hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this beautiful cottage. It is set in farmland with a fantastic view. The cottage was very homely and everything we needed was there. The kids enjoyed the whole experience and we had a very relaxing time.

Fantastic country retreat

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 nights at Swallows Cottage on a family get away. The children were very excited when we pulled into the farm. The Cottage is adorable. It was clean and comfortable with a lovely fire and plenty of extra blankets for the cold nights. Everything we needed was provided and we were only a short drive from town. I would highly recommend this quaint little escape.

Pleasantly Surprised

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful two night stay here. The fire place was a delight. Very clean, good beds and shower with a symphony of birds as an alarm clock.

The only down side for us was - it was too far out to walk into town for dinner or drinks. If that is not an issue, it's the perfect little hide away

lovely old cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was comfortable with plenty of room for us all. The boys had a wonderful time and the dogs and cows were a great success. Beautiful and peaceful, it was lovely to spend time there together.

wonderful rustic homey country charm

  • 4 of 5

This is just the most wonderful rambly older house, right away from the business of Margaret River but very accessible. Ideal for families, thoughtful touches abound and charmingly decorated.
