Trewins built in 1860s is still original and rustic, basic facilities, kitchenette, fire, quarter acre

A charming and truly authentic miner’s cottage, Trewins was built around the 1860’s after the land was first sold by the Government, and Trewins has been both permanent and holiday rental accommodation for over 150 years. Step into the cottage and step back in time. With very little change to the footprint, the cottage has maintained its originality for the most part, offering a rustic and simple stay for guests wanting to experience a bygone era.

The kitchenette is basic with a hot plate and microwave, kettle and toaster so fine for simple fare but not for 3 course meals.  The bathroom has an old fashioned shower, a toilet and vanity but there is a hairdryer – still some modern necessities sitting comfortably alongside old fashioned charm.

The living room is warmed by the open fire (there are also heaters) and the two bedrooms include a queen bed and a double bed.  There are no doors on the bedrooms, simply a curtain for privacy.  You can curl up on the sofa in the sunroom and pick a book or a board game from the library or sit outside on the brick patio and enjoy the sunshine and the cottage garden.

Trewins sits on half an acre of land covered in grass, wild flowers, rambling vines and bushes.  Your well behaved pet is welcome and is allowed inside and outside, however, it is not allowed on the furniture including the beds.  Please note this property is not fenced and it is your responsibility to look after your pet at all times.

Get yourself a coffee or a glass of wine and watch the trotters who regularly practice their paces in the next door paddock.  There is lots of wildlife and birds as well as peace and tranquility.  You are 5 minutes drive into town and there is off street parking.

We provide complimentary tea, coffee, milk and sugar. Also provided are wood and kindling for the fire and linen for bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. All you need to bring are your personal belongings, food and beverages.
