The space
The Lion Cottage is a cosy one bedroom heritage cottage in the heart of cosmopolitan North Adelaide. Walking distance to most of the Adelaide sights, including Tour Down Under, it is on a FREE bus route for more distant adventures. We are also more than willing to discuss you bringing your pet: a cleaning fee might apply. Breakfast starter supplies of a healthy cereal, milk, coffee-pod machine and coffee pods, Twinings tea, potted fruit and muesli bars are included in your accommodation.

The Lion Cottage comfortably accommodates 1-2 adults and sometimes a pet (please discuss with Karen). The new kitchen and bathroom truly compliment the comfort provided by this classic accommodation. Located around the corner from Melbourne Street, and only 1.5km from the Adelaide CBD, you will enjoy the cosiness of staying in a cottage, while enjoying a perfect location for sightseeing and enjoying the many restaurants and cafes Adelaide has to offer. Stays less than 2 nights are at the discretion of Karen, and worth making contact to ask about, as the location is superb.

Bed and bathroom linen is provided, as are many common home items such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, DVDs and CDs, books, games, etc. Included in the price is a breakfast starter pack which includes tea, coffee (pods), milk, muesli bars, and potted fruit. Look for your welcome chocolates on the mantelpiece.

We also have a parking permit which enables you to park for extended periods in the immediate vicinity. It is $15 per week. Let me know if you are interested, and I will talk you through the council directions.

I live with my husband of 25 years and 4 boys. I have worked/studied in North Adelaide for 30 years. Born in Papua New Guinea, I grew up in England, and spent teenage time in Tokyo and Denver. Now with 4 growing boys, our holidays involve 4WD and camping in the Outback with mountain bikes. I enjoy The Lion Cottage as a way to meet new and interesting people who come our way. Stay at our cottage, and I expect you'll meet at least one of our 4 boys helping you with an errand. Let us share it with you.

During your stay

If it is appropriate, I meet you at the cottage when you arrive. Then you may call me if you have any questions during the stay, and I am happy to help. We live just up the road, and work across the road, so we are easily available to assist should you need.
