Overview

About the property

The Spinney is a beautiful 1940s Bowral cottage renovated with luxury, warmth & stylishly decorated with eclectic touches. Set on over half an acre and nestled into the western side of Mt Gibraltar half way between Mittagong and Bowral, this North facing cottage, bathed in sunlight is an enchanting property, perfect for weekends away or longer stays. Half an acre of lush Highlands gardens with over 35 Camellia species, mostly in bloom all year round. The drive way id greeted with a silver birch grove, a magnificent old Magnolia tree and if your lucky enough to stay over summer - a beautiful Jackaranda tree - always full of purple bloom over Christmas. The Spinney has 3 double bedrooms - 2 queens, one king that can be two singles - each bedroom has its own bathroom, one of which has a bath - so 3 Bathrooms!!!!

The Spinney is an overflow of Yolk Interiors, situated in Dirty Janes antique emporium & market place in Bowral, with over 60 stall holders & collectors. Yolk specialises in rustic decorator furniture & nic nacs with our main focus being vintage lamps and custom made lamp shades. Just about everything in The Spinney is available for purchase, so if you fall in love with it, it can be yours to take home with a phone call.

The cottage is furnished in an eclectic country style, with formal dining, sitting and living rooms in addition to the three bedrooms. The ducted heating system ensures even warmth throughout the house. The half acre cool climate garden features an array of mature trees, Camellia collection and colourful shrubs at every turn.

Cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen, relax, fall asleep reading a book on the lounge in front of the fire; or stay busy visiting the many cafes, antique stores and wineries dotted throughout the region.

The property is best suited to the appreciative types, perfect for the girls getaway weekend, great for wedding weekends, or for a few couples to escape the city and soak up the beauty that is the The Spinney in all is quirky beauty & the Highlands - all year round, enjoy our seasons. Not particularly child friendly due to all the decorator items that are not for small hands. Not suggested for pets due to location and gates onto road - apologies!

Up to six guests can be accommodated, Main queen bed has attached ensuite, second Queen bed with its own bathroom & bath to soak in & third bedroom can be 2 singles or a king with a third bathroom.

The Spinney is like visiting your quirky best friends house in the country - relaxed, casual, comfy & pleasing on the eye. We love white bed linen, duck down pillows & fluffy white towels. We love a warm fire, a walk in the country & a meander through town shopping & finishing up with a nice meal & good company

A fabulous place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The Spinney is an ideal place to spend a couple of days while exploring the Southern Highlands. The house was everything we could have wished for. Beds were so comfortable ,lots of fluffy towels . Kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed plus more. Although there were 2 log fires , it was not the weather to light them. The perfect solution was the central heating. To come in from our adventures to a lovely warm house was great. Overall feel of the Spinney is welcoming. homely and relaxed.

Beautifully Decorated Sunny Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cosy cottage with ample room for us, 5 adults and a little one. Sal went out of her way to provide a cot for our little one with beautiful attention to detail including some great advice on the best spots in town. The house has some unique pieces of art and home wares you can purchase - which I certainly took advantage of. We stayed for a wedding and were the envy of all the guests paying twice as much for tiny hotel rooms. Highly recommend for a weekend away in the highlands.

Stunning find!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage in a fantastic spot near Bowral. We had a fabulous weekend of eating, drinking and relaxing and The Spinney was the perfect base. Sal, the host, is fantastic and sent us lots of information on Bowral and the surrounding area which was really helpful. We just needed to stay longer as we ran out of time and only scratched the surface!

Thanks again Sal for a wonderful stay. Highly recommended and we'll be back!

Great property

  • 4 of 5

All four of us enjoyed our stay at The Spinney. It was comfortable and warm, especially as it was chilly outside. Liked the fact that there were plenty of provisions available for our stay, eg: toilet paper, dishwasher tablets etc.

Eclectic and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A great little find. Surprisingly quiet considering it backed on to a busy road.

Beds comfortable, showers hot and very good heating for a winters stay.
