You will fall in love with this charming heritage gatehouse, completely modernised and ideal for three couples ... but can comfortably sleep up to ten people. Set in sunny private gardens on the picturesque Eridge Park Road in Burradoo just 5 minutes drive from Bowral township, Eridge Lodge combines the quiet and peace of the countryside with the convenience of local shops and villages.
Like many of the historical buildings in Bowral, the Lodge dates back to around the 1880’s when the area had become a retreat for prominent Sydney families and is regarded as one of the finest Australian examples of Gothic gate lodges. The original cottage has been doubled in size and now comfortably sleeps 10 guests with spacious living and cooking areas in the new section. Quaint details like the undersized door, the window seat and the tiny lighting alcove remain, but it now has the functionality of a modern home. Nestled between the renowned Moidart Gardens and the historic grounds of Hartzer Park Monastery, your outlook is both picturesque and peaceful.
The cottage accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms (2 king and 1 queen bed) and three ensuite bathrooms. With its old world charm and warm natural colours, the cottage is instantly welcoming and relaxing. And in winter the wood burning fireplace creates a cosy escape from the outside world.
The modern kitchen has gas oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge, walk-in pantry and all the necessary appliances for an easy, relaxed visit. There is also a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board available. Entertainment options include a large plasma television and a DVD/CD player along with an iPod connector.
The three bedrooms consist of 2 king bedrooms each with wardrobes, sitting areas and ensuite. Each of the sitting areas includes a sofa bed for extra guests. The third bedroom is made up with a queen sized bed and wardrobe. Two of the bedrooms have flat screen televisions. Modern bathrooms offer all conveniences, two with full baths. The upstairs area features reverse cycle air conditioning and in the cooler months the cottage has the choice of wood fire or electric heating. All linen is supplied. Under cover parking is available for 4 cars.
Please note that the cottage is non-smoking.
