Situated two minutes off the Princes Highway (half way between Nowra to the north, and the charming village of Milton to the south) and convenient to many of the Shoalhaven region's most beautiful beaches.. Finchley B&B offers 2 acres of lightly treed rural land with delightful views including wallabies and kangaroos sometimes grazing nearby.
We have a dog-proof fenced yard connected to the rear of the cottage, and an acre of secure open space where dogs or children can have a good run around to let off steam after a long trip in the car.
The Shoalhaven region has become famous for many quality wineries, some with their own restaurants, and some offering jazz events, local exhibitions etc, as well as many quality restaurants and cafes including the world renowned Rick Stein's at Bannisters, in Mollymook, and weekend markets, galleries and museums.
Finchley B and B is very conveniently situated within 20-30 minutes' driving distance of many beautiful Shoalhaven/Jervis Bay beaches, National Parks and bushwalking trails, waterfalls and lookouts, such as George Boyd Lookout and Granite Falls. The Shoalhaven and Jervis Bay coast offers many popular fishing spots, surfing beaches and bays (many, dog-friendly), walking trails, dolphin-and whale-watching cruises and more. You are also within a very pleasant day's outing through Kangaroo Valley to the Southern Highlands area behind us.
The cottage features some original works by a local artist, showing Jervis Bay area views, and we have beach bags with a choice of three of these views, all available to purchase as a souvenir of your visit or perhaps a gift.
Located at the centre of the Shoalhaven, Wandandian village was first established as a postal district in 1860, and has a rich history.
