"Shirley" Cottage Retreat Accommodation

The cottage at "Shirley" between Bombala & Nimmitabel in Southern NSW has been luxuriously renovated and is available for holiday rentals.  The house is located on a stunning property that features a Paul Bangay designed garden.


The perfect retreat for those looking to truly get away from it all, "Shirley" is located near Nimmitabel in Southern NSW.  The original overseers cottage at Shirley has been fully restored and offers secluded privacy with stunning garden and rural surrounds that create an ideal environment to restore and rejuvenate.

A true home away from home, the retreat features a generously sized kitchen with European appliances – perfect for creating that gourmet meal.

The living room centres around a slow-burning wood fire, while the bathroom includes a large rain shower and separate bath.  The master bedroom looks over the lake and the stunning rural landscape, and the second bedroom has it's own private courtyard , making this the perfect retreat for up to two couples.

Purposely designed to create a feeling of tranquility, the cottage has minimal technology. It does however have DVD facilities. Mobile phone reception is available, however coverage is limited…..allowing you to get away from it all.

And for those balmy summer or soft autumn days there is the outdoor dining area with its gas BBQ and sun lounges under the trees overlooking the lake.
