In the nostalgic village of Candelo, named after her Italian namesake, a cottage awaits. Circa 1870, Ellington Grove and it's prior occupants have seen many years pass, and so we would like to return her to you in her revived state reminiscent of the golden age of jazz and sweet cigars.

The space
Nestled in a grove of twisted willows and giant eucalyptus trees, this historic cottage, sitting on 5 acres of land will be all yours. With two queen bedrooms, the space is perfect for two couples, as a retreat with friends or have the whole place to yourself! Ellington Grove sleeps four adults very comfortably, so we would prefer nobody sleep on the couches, although they do make for an excellent afternoon nap. At the moment we do not have the facilities for extra guests.

Hardwood floors and slate tiles run the expanse of the house complimented with luscious rugs. Two functional fireplaces stocked with firewood for those winter nights and pure french linen bedding will give you the dreamiest night's sleep. Designed with the jazz age in mind, pressed metal walls and luxurious armchairs line the space, not to mention two gorgeous deep velvet lounges to sink into next to the fire.

Please note there is purposefully no television in Ellington Grove, perhaps try a break from your devices for a time and experience the full retreat. Feel free to delve into a book and please help yourself to the board games or perhaps learn a new card game while you sit in the cozy lounge or on the terrace.

Fitted with a brand new modern kitchen; stovetop, fridge and oven, coffee percolator/plunger and basic cookware, we provide your basic pantry needs such as oil, salt and pepper, coffee and tea. For any other supplies, Candelo General Store (hours may differ) is a ten minute stroll away and Bega Woolworths is about a twenty minute drive if you need to stock up on your way through. The local pub is less than 15 minutes walk and does excellent food and takeaway, their hours may change according to trade so it's best to get in early.

Merimbula airport is a half hour away from Ellington Grove where there is car rental available. You will need a car to get around and explore although Candelo village is a 10 minute stroll away. The surrounding area is definitely worth a visit. The coast is a half hour scenic drive away, pop into Merimbula, Pambula and the historical Tathra or a little bit further out there’s the beautiful beaches of Bermagui or take a walk back in time at Tilba Tilba. If adventure is your thing, there are numerous hiking trails and plenty of rolling hills for cyclists, scenic lookouts to explore including summit walks, rainforest tracks and coastline hikes around the Sapphire Coast.

Ellington Grove is not suitable for pets and will incur an extra cleaning fee, there are several precious antique objects that could easily be damaged. Also please be aware that the house is not appropriate for children.

Although our fireplaces are for the use of guests please make yourself familiar with the safety guidelines.

No parties at Ellington Grove please, as we would like to keep her well looked after for all guests and as our own luxury retreat.

Any questions please feel free to send us a message.
