Immediately past the bridge there is a crossroads with the General store and Service Station on your right. Turn left here into Jayes Road. Travel up Jayes Road for approx 300m, passing the Town Hall on your right. Take the first turn left into Walter Street and go back over the Balingup Brook on a one-lane bridge. Immediately over this bridge, turn right into Brook Street (gravel road). Follow Brook Street to the very end and the street will run directly into our driveway. A sign above the right hand gate post says “Chestnut Brook”.

If you are arriving from other directions eg. from Bridgetown or Nannup, drive through Balingup until you reach the General Store (on your left). At the crossroads here, turn right into Jayes Road and proceed as above.

Prepare to be enchanted when you stay at Chestnut Brook Cottage, and enjoy quality accommodation at an affordable price. Fully self contained, there are two bedrooms, an open plan living/dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. Nestled into a hillside, windows extending the full length of the living areas provide sweeping views. Sleeping up to four, it is suitable for either a romantic getaway for two, or a comfortable holiday for a family.

Relax on the verandahs with a BBQ or a glass of wine, watch the birds and soak up the view. Have a casual lunch in your very own cottage garden, or just read a book in the shade of the trees. Enjoy the cosy wood fire on misty winter mornings and the cool air-conditioning in summer. Everything is provided for your comfort, and the cottage is spotlessly clean.

The Cottage is superbly appointed, with all quality linen provided. All you need to bring is your food. It was originally built as a private house, so is more spacious than the usual holiday chalet and is set well away from any other dwellings, so is very private and quiet.

The main bedroom has a Queen sized bed and the second bedroom contains two single beds. The bathroom has a separate bath and shower and the toilet is separate from the bathroom.

Two verandahs provide extra areas for relaxation, and there is a gas BBQ for your exclusive use. The back verandah is gated and safe as a playing area for young children. Outdoor settings are provided on both verandahs and also in the garden. The Cottage is equipped with a TV and DVD as well as a CD player, and selections of CDs and DVDs are available. There are also board games and a small library.

If you wish to go walking on the Bibbulmun Track, we are happy to drop you off so you can walk back. Children are very welcome.

Cancellation Policy

When you book with us, we hold the cottage for you exclusively. Therefore, although we understand that unexpected events can arise, unfortunately if you cancel we may have to charge you. While we endeavour to be as flexible as possible, when it comes to booking changes, our standard policy is as follows: In the event that you cancel your booking, we are happy on most occasions to hold your deposit over for you to come and stay at a later date. If you wish a refund of your deposit, then a small administration charge of $20 will be deducted to cover our costs. However, if less than fourteen days notice is given, the deposit is non-refundable unless we can re-let the cottage for the entire period of the cancellation with a booking of equal value. Changes to confirmed bookings after arrival are subject to a cancellation fee equal to the full tariff of all days cancelled. We suggest you consider travel insurance to cover any losses incurred if unforeseen circumstances force you to alter your travel plans.
