Acre of Roses

Stay in a 19th-century cottage on a micro flower farm.

Take a trip back in time at this impossibly cute miner's cottage, built in the 1860s. When you're not soaking in your cedar hot tub filled with steaming hot rainwater or snuggling up in front of the fire, you can explore the fragrant surrounds or watch an old black-and-white film in the openair theatre room.

Outside of the cottage, you'll discover that you're actually at a working biodynamic micro-farm. Dozens of heritage roses are grown here with as little interference as possible. They're powered instead by natural elements: sunshine, water, bees and compost. And during your stay, if you're keen to cook up a storm, you can help yourself to whatever produce you find.

The property also hosts events throughout the year, including horticultural workshops and days when guests can pick their own roses.
