    The Potager is an historic 1870's sandstone cottage in the heart of the central victorian goldfields.
    Added to and restored over the years the cottage revolves around a superb living area with exposed stone walls, huge open fireplace, slate floors, floor to ceiling glass doors that open out onto a terrace and a 20m swimming pool beyond which lies The Potager Garden. The garden was originally laid out in a semi formal design with stone walls, winding paths and raised beds full of roses, herbs and perrenials. The whole rich and fragrant tapestry is lined on each side by espaliered apple and pear trees.

Our weekend stay at The Potager was perfect. The tree lined driveway was our first impression and numerous "wow" moments followed. On entering the house the aura is one of homeliness and comfort.

The property is lovely and private, in a delightful garden setting with lots of native birds, rabbits grazing at dusk, and even a kangaroo a few metres from our bedroom window one night. Lots of secluded spots to sit, relax, read a... more
