    Charlie Bates Cottage is an iconic part of Penneshaw's history. The cottage has proudly stood watch over the beautiful shores of Hog's Bay for more than 110 years.

Both father and son with their extended families made an amazing and very colourful contribution to the early settlement of the East End of Kangaroo Island.
