Star Rock Cottage is a newly built, beautiful, peaceful coastal cottage. It is located just a few steps across our fields to the beach at White Sands , where you can walk to lovely secluded coves in either direction. The cottage is situated in a private spot on the owners small farm and is set among the paddocks of sheep and horses. In the morning collect your eggs from your own little hen house or pick them up from our century home where you also have access to our organic vegetable garden. Dig for delicious clams at low tide and buy fresh fish and lobster from local fishermen at the nearby harbours. Sit and watch the fox cubs play and the gannets diving from your comfortable screened deck, everyones favourite place.
The cottage comfortably sleeps up to four adults or two adults and two children. There is one bedroom that has a quality queen sized bed and the second bedroom has two new high end, comfortable single beds. A modern open plan kitchen/ living room plus a shower room, all rooms are decorated in country style with painted antique furniture, local handmade quilts, cozy braided wool rugs and artwork to give you a home from home feel along with a sense of peace and quiet. We have endeavoured to give the cottage a homely feel with little touches of luxury such as quality beds with 100% cotton linens, cozy bath robes, fluffy white towels and bath sheets.
New for 2017 is an outside shower for those beach days, great for washing off the sand from the wonderful local beach or any of those sandy shores that are within a easy drive.
