With its scalloped, shingled cladding, detailed timber work, leadlights and beautifully appointed, intimate rooms, Polo Cottage offers a charming, authentic Southern Highlands experience.
Fully self-contained, this storybook cottage accommodates up to four guests in two spacious bedrooms, making it ideal for couples seeking a romantic getaway or families craving a relaxing break from routine. The cottage is perfect also for honeymooners or wedding guests.
Built in 1897 as one of the original cottages for the Burradoo Polo Club, Polo Cottage’s exterior has, except for aesthetic touches, remained unaltered for over a hundred years. Inside, though, it’s has been beautifully restored; it’s now stylishly appointed and deliciously heated.
The light-filled modern kitchen contains everything you need to cook breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. You can dine casually at the small table in the kitchen or in the atmospheric separate dining room. Or, on a clear, sunny day, guests can set up on the generous-sized sandstone table in the garden.
In winter, the snug sitting room with its comfortable chairs, books, magazines and real-flame gas heater, set in the cavity of the original brick fireplace, is an inviting place to unwind. Come spring, the two sun-drenched verandas, looking over the vast grounds of Chevalier College, provide lovely nooks for enjoying a glass of wine or cup of tea.
Both bedrooms feature immaculately presented king-sized beds, which can be converted to king-sized singles. Guests will appreciate the cosy doonas, electric blankets and throws on chilly nights. Like the bedrooms, the cottage’s elegant bathroom is large, yet cosy and inviting.
While the minimum stay is two nights, not surprisingly, most guests find it difficult to leave Polo Cottage and extend their stay.
If you’re thinking of relocating to the Highlands and want to trial the area, or renovating an existing home or between properties, we offer great rates for weekly or monthly bookings.
