Heaven in the bush
My husband and I have just had a wonderful 5 day stay at Bussells Bushland Cottages at Margaret River. It was so relaxing and after exploring the area it was always wonderful to come home to our little haven in the bush. Being rammed earth the temperature was always comfortable even though some of the days were pretty hot and a couple of the nights quite cool. There is reverse cycle air conditioning and ceiling fans and a wood heater if any of these are needed. The cottage was so well appointed and had everything we needed. I was very surprised to hear that the cottages were refurbished 9 years ago. They are so well maintained that I assumed it was far more recent than that. I love that they are well separated from neighboring cottages so you felt as if you were the only ones there. We never heard any other people even though they were pretty much booked out most nights. Due to being mid-summer there wasn’t quite as many birds as would be seen in the cooler months. But there were quite a few to be seen and heard - especially the red-tailed black cockatoos which are stunning birds. There are quite a few kangaroos in the adjoining farms. There are numerous tracks through the property so it is nice to wander around and enjoy the bush. The coast isn’t too far away and the Margaret River town is just 7kms away so you are pretty handy to all that is on offer in that part of the South West.
