Cottesmore House is a bit of history amongst the gumtrees and oaks. It has a beautiful story to tell. We have tried to capture the history by restoring the little treasures in the home. You truly feel as though you have walked back in time with all the modern cons. You have to experience the beauty in the unique antique parts of the house or the old established trees and gardens due to one of the previous owners in the 60's being a botanist. Its like a mini botanical gardens. We wanted to bring it back to life and share it with our guests.
