Devon Cottage - Private & fully self-contained accommodation in Bowral – for 2-3 people

Devon Cottage is located in the 6 acre grounds of historic “Southdown” at Burradoo/Bowral- an original Southern Highlands property dating back to 1857.

A very private self-contained accommodation with a uniquely decorated interior in a sylvan setting of trees, hedges, parterres and garden rooms. A romantic hideaway only a few minutes from Bowral's many restaurants, cafes and boutique shops.

The cottage, originally a fruit pickers' hut (c.1880) was reconstructed on site and an extra storey added, using recycled timbers and materials. The final appearance resembles an old cottage from Devon or Cornwall - hence 'Devon Cottage' - set in English style gardens. The original slab & tin walls are complemented by an eclectic collection of country style Victorian furniture and bric a brac to provide a rustic interior.

Upstairs has a queen bedroom/TV lounge area with windows overlooking the gardens and ponds. Downstairs has a cosy living area with lounge, dining corner and a wood fire (in winter). An old fashioned kitchenette provides all cooking facilities. The period bathroom has a hip bath with shower over and there is an enclosed veranda sitting room with an additional single bed.

Full linen and a 2 day complementary basket breakfast are provided.

Curl up with a book or sit and enjoy the 6 acre park-like estate, where the seasons offer displays of colour.

Devon Cottage is accommodation for 2-3 people.
Not suitable for children or the elderly or infirm.
Sorry no pets.


Customer Comments...


We loved staying at Devon Cottage. It was wonderful. We will be recommending (and already have been!) staying there to friends and relatives.

Thanks for the hospitality. The little touches went a long way. We wish we could have stayed for longer.

Luke & Mia.


Hi Margaret,

Just letting you know I had a lovely couple of days at the cottage and I hope to come back for another visit next year.

Thanks for everything,



Hi Margaret,

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful stay in Devon Cottage. It was recommended to us by friends, Laura Hopes and Jamie Kristian, and it definitely lived up to their rave reviews. I have been recommending it to everyone I come across so far today!

Thank you again,



Dear Margaret,

It was quite nice feeling as if we were hidden away from the world anyway.

We loved our stay and the cottage was just gorgeous.

Thank you,



Hi Margaret,

We had a wonderful stay!

The cottage is so well planned and had everything we could have possibly needed (even umbrellas).

It was great to have a wander around the garden and get some inspiration for own own.

Hopefully we will see you again soon .

Thanks again,



Hi Margaret,

Thanks so much for the stay, the property is amazing. Love the attention to detail and care taken, grounds are breathtaking, we were fortunate enough to experience a visit by the hens and a peacock!

I left a shirt behind, but was thinking of staying there again this weekend, although this time I'd like to bring my three children along.

I'll have a look on the website for availability.

Thanks again,



Good morning Margaret,

Our time at Devon Cottage was absolutely perfect! The cottage was decorated so well with all the mod-cons without sacrificing it's heritage charm!

I will make sure to leave a very positive review on Stayz (apologies for not doing so earlier).

Thank you kindly,



Hi Margaret,

I'm sorry we missed you! We wanted to ensure you had time to prepare the beautiful cozy cottage for the next set of awed visitors.

As I scrawled in your visitor's book, we had a lovely time and truly enjoyed your hospitality - thank you so much for the extra eggs. They were such a treat. We've begun planning our next trip and will look forward to relaxing in the Long Barn next time.

Thank you!



Hi Margaret,

Apologies I didn't get to see you when I left but thank you so much for the most wonderful stay. I have already recommended Devon Cottage to a number of friends as it was everything I imagined.

Thank you for making the wedding weekend so brilliant.



Hi Margaret,

Both Ben and I just wanted to give you some feedback on our fabulous weekend away in Devon Cottage.

Both of us have done quite a lot of travel over the past few years and we can safely say the weekend away transported us not only to another place, but also to another era.

We both came back so relaxed and rejuvenated that we will certainly be back again in the near future.

We've also been boasting about the place to others since the moment we got back to Sydney.

We'd just like to thank you for a lovely weekend and to let you know you've done a stunning job on creating such a lovely place with a fantastic environment.

FromSally and Ben.


Dear Margaret,

Just to let you know we have just checked out of Devon Cottage.

Thank you for the beautiful stay. We will have to come back with sunny weather to enjoy the gardens, but we enjoyed the warm feel of the cottage regardless.
