The space
This State Heritage listed cottage resonates with the spirit of a bygone age. Unwind in our 5-Diamond rated B&B with double candlelit spa, reverse cycle air conditioning, cosy wood fire and panoramic sea views. There's no better place to spend a lazy weekend; it is the perfect romantic getaway for two, a charming self-contained cottage with four main rooms, surrounded by superb landscaped gardens. Facilities include a well-appointed kitchen, TV/DVD and games and BBQ. The bedroom has a four-poster queen-size bed. Slate floors throughout add to the charm and appeal. It lies on the south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, an hour’s drive from Adelaide. Nestled in 65 acres of farmland, it has ocean views between Port Elliot and Victor Harbor.
Brooklands is one of the earliest stone cottages on the south coast of the South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula, a little over an hour south of Adelaide. It lies in the foothills overlooking the historic resort of Port Elliot and the rocky coastline and pristine beaches of the Great Southern Ocean. A gentle stroll up the hill behind the cottage provides a sweeping panorama from the World Heritage Coorong National Park to Victor Harbor and Encounter Bay, a sparkling playground for summer holidaymakers, seals and dolphins, and a breeding ground in the winter for the Southern Right whale.
Stone for the cottage and main homestead was from the property. The quarry is just a 5-minute walk along a gully lined with ancient almond trees, olives and thorny acacia. If you inhabit the silence of this magical place for a while, you will gradually become aware of small birds such as blue wrens, silvereyes and red-browed finches flitting from bush to bush. Kangaroos live there too and you may see an echidna busily foraging amongst the grasses.
The cottage is surrounded by private gardens, landscaped by Sophie Thomson (ABC Gardening Australia and 891 Radio Adelaide). They contain native plants, and plants which were popular in 19th century cottage gardens, such as lavender, rosemary and Rugosa roses. Plants have been selected for their scent and a guiding principle has been to establish a garden having colour throughout the year, yet one that requires little water.
