We stayed at the cottages with 2 other families. Everything was perfect....from the standard of the accommodation, local tourist information provided, nature trail within the property, local wildlife and Gayle/Gail on reception. We loved it and wish we'd booked for longer.

We have stayed many times at the rammed earth cottages and have never been disappointed the setting is idyllic in the middle of a beautiful wooded bush block which brings in the birds and wildlife. The cottages are spaced out well so your privacy is not an issue at any time. The cottages themselves are cosy and we especially like...

We had a very relaxing time in these well equipped cottages very close to the township of Margaret River. Quiet with only the kangaroos and birds to disturb us. Friendly staff, but not imposing. Recommended

Thanks Terry. It seems the possums left you in peace. Oh, the joys of this "Land for Wildlife" property, where the wildlife is the only thing that disturbs one's tranquillity.

I highly recommend the cottage for families with children to experience life in the bush but still have all the modern amenities for a comfortable stay. There is aircon in the living room and fan in the room except for the room with the bunk beds (for safety reason). Get to wake up to birds chirping and kangaroos greeting us...

Thank you Maureen for your recommendation. Our cottages are 40 years old, but have been completely renovated so that they present in a more modern context. Those who have visited for more than 10 years will have seen the significant improvements we've undertaken - because we love this property. If it's of interest, Bussells Bushland Cottages is part of a...

I can't say enough good things about this place. Beautiful grounds- make you feel like you are tucked away in the country but you are so close to town and all the fun activities. Full kitchen and house. Perfect for a family getaway. Friendly staff and lots of nature and fantastic smelling forest. Will definitely be back!

Thanks Natalie. It's nice to know that our forest does more than just provide a canopy and an impediment to our Wi-Fi. Just kidding of course. We look forward to having you return in the near future.

My girlfriends and I stayed in the Small Family Cottage (cottage 4) for 2 nights in March 2017. It was our first time in Margaret River and we found this accommodation to be suitable for our needs. The location was great - very quiet, dark and private. About 5-8 minute drive into the main town. There were 2 bedrooms, one...

Hi Celine Being a true rural retreat, water is pumped from our soak, treated, stored then gravity-fed to the cottages. There will, therefore, be some tricky moments. A small price to pay for holidaying in a bushland setting. I'm delighted that you and your friends enjoyed your stay and we look forward to your return.

Had a great 3 days staying here. Our two kids, 3 and 1, loved the outdoors and being able to go outside to spot birds and kangaroos. Great location close to Margaret River and local attractions, cottages have all the basic amenities needed to make the holidays enjoyable, they are really clean and well maintained, as well as being nicely...

Our complimentary "starter" breakfast is suited to adults and children, it's true; and we have an expectation that parents will cater to the needs of infants. Great to hear you enjoyed your stay.

Thank you very much for organising such a private cottage for us. We were very impressed with such a comfortable, modern and clean cottage. We appreciated the quality kitchen and the beautiful bathroom. We loved every single moment in the cottage. The welcome breakfast pack and wine were deeply appreciated. We stayed at cottage 8.

Is it any wonder that our guests return over and over again when their experiences are as you've described. Too few of our guests take the opportunity to get our after dark, to enjoy the walk trails and the star-lit skies. Maybe more will if they read of your experience. Thank you and we look forward to receiving you and...

We had our 3rd visit here and found the same peaceful cottages (8 in all) each set in its own little bit of bush for privacy. Well appointed with everything you could possible need for a comfortable stay. We walked in the bush and saw many kangaroos and a ring neck parrot pair came to our veranda for a quick...

Many thanks for your kind comments and I'm delightful to hear that you are returning guests. We do get many, of course, because they love the natural experience and look forward to seeing the improvements that we've made since the last time. You have noted that we've installed air-conditioning, which could only be undertaken after an upgrade to power supplies...

We spent 6 nights here and it was not enough. This was a return visit having stayed here 6 years ago on our last visit to Australia.

Thank you very much Beryl and I'm sure Gail will be thrilled to hear such positive comments. In fact, I'm sure you would have been very surprised on entering the property and cottages as we've done a huge amount since your visit 6 years ago. We've improved signage, sealed the 600 metre entry driveway, completely gutted and refitted the cottages...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our 8 rammed-earth cottages are fully self-contained, with each having 2 bedrooms (see note), fully-equipped kitchen, living room and shared bathroom. Cottages are randomly scattered on our 20 hectare (50 acre) bush block and we're within easy driving (5kms) distance of Margaret River township, beaches, wineries, cafes, restaurants, shops and the region's best tourist features. All cottages have been completely refurbished in recent years, following which we were awarded a 4-star rating by AAA. Note: Our lead-in tariffs are for 1 or 2 persons occupying 1 bedroom. If guests wish to use the 2nd bedroom, we charge an extra bed fee in order to cover the additional costs of linen and cleaning. ... more   less
