I find that great places to stay often offer new, self-contained universes, extensions of the people that live there. The Gallery is just such a place.....

.... You are given the entire cottage, a labyrinth of staircases, decks and unexpected alcoves which reflect the character and charm of this 1860s building. After hours, you have the actual gallery to yourselves too. The cottage is awash with flowers. The cosy, atticky bedroom has a huge bed piled with white pillows, a fireplace and a giant pane of glass that allows magnificent views down over the Clyde River. The river is the focus of the house, stretching away between dense eucalypt forests with no development for 108 kilometres upstream. You can sit mesmerised on the verandah alongside the local wildlife or admire it all from the comfort of fireside or bed. You are surrounded by national parks, there are magnificent beaches close by and Canberra is just an hour and a half away. Book as far in advance as you can as Kay and Brian can take only one couple here, although they also have a self-catering cottage 5 km away on the farm, overlooking a tidal pool.
