Our 8 rammed-earth cottages are fully self-contained, with each having 2 bedrooms (see note), fully-equipped kitchen, air-conditioned living / dining room and (shared) bathroom. Cottages are randomly scattered on our 20 hectare (50 acre) bush block and we're within easy driving (5kms) distance of Margaret River township, beaches, wineries, cafes, restaurants, shops and the region's best tourist features. All cottages have been completely refurbished and we're the equivalent of a 4-star rated property (4 gumnuts in our terminology). Free Wi-Fi is available in all cottages and (following a great deal of effort) can now support streaming. Note: Our lead-in tariffs are for 1 or 2 persons occupying 1 bedroom. If guests wish to use the 2nd bedroom, we charge an extra bed fee in order to cover the additional costs of linen and cleaning.

My Partner and I had 2 nights here and would thoroughly recommend it,. Accommodation is clean and has everything you need including a pot belly fire should the weather not be so great. It was a bit wet and windy while we were there but it didn’t ruin our stay as there is plenty to see and do to avoid the rain and wind. Accommodation is located a short 10 minute drive outside of Margaret River, but secluded enough that you really do feel like you are getting away from everything. Great little break from the city for a recharge.

My family and I have stayed in many places in the Margaret River region over the last 10 years. Wish we'd found this place sooner! The best we've stayed in. Close to town and in a beautiful bush location with good walking through the property and great views of surrounding farms and aninals. The managers were great and managed to amend some of our booking details with no hassles which was appreciated. Cottage was great, very well equipped for a winter stay and good standard of interior design. Would definitely recommend!

Many thanks Andrew. We have oodles of repeat guests who return for the privacy and the bush experience. It is particularly enjoyable in winter when guest can crank up the fire and live a simple, but comfortable, life.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Cost environment set amongst bush land, allowing you to wake up with the kangaroos and birds. Many great walking paths through the bush on the property, some leading to wonderful panoramics views of surrounding fields.

We came here with two children on a short walking holiday in the region. The cottage we stayed in was well appointed with a good kitchen and comfy beds. The wood burner was a lovely touch. We went for a short walk around the property and it was lovely. We saw a lot of kangaroos and the kids loved all the little camps scattered around. Because we were on a walking holiday we made use of their laundry facilities which were excellent. I'd definitely recommend this for a family or couple. It's quiet, close to Margaret River with beaches close by. The cottages themselves are rammed earth and really well designed. It was also spotlessly clean when we arrived.

What a fabulous place to stay. Quiet Bushland setting with the added bonus of kangaroos hopping past. The unit was amazing. Spotless, comfortable beds, most well equipped kitchen we’ve ever had, Large lounge, great water pressure in shower, wifi (sometimes a bit slow but you are in the bush and isn’t the idea of a holiday in the bush to get away and soak up the surrounds). Walking tracks to explore on property and only a few minutes drive from Margaret river town. Loved it so much we have booked a return stay.

Every year we hold a creative retreat for authors and illustrators. The wildlife at Bussells Bushland Cottages is amazing and we love this tranquil location just a short drive from shops, wineries and beaches. We get so much done and come away refreshed and bursting with inspiration.

We were a family group and had four cottages. Ange was ever so helpful in getting this organised for us at the booking time and then adding extra people just before our stay. The rooms are a great size, clean and comfortable. Everyone loved the wood fires too. The kids (and adults) in the group enjoyed spotting the kangaroos and joeys and we had fun walking around the property. It was a nice touch that different tree types on the property were labelled - we hadn't even heard of a Snottygobble tree! We would definitely come again.

With its cabins surrounded by bush, this place couldn't be more perfect. We loved staying here and go out for walking and then coming back to an evening of relaxing in front of the fire. Just perfect, it really is.

The cottages, the setting and peaceful surrounding are awesome in every way. It is no wonder it's hard to get a booking. One could easily live here because all needs are catered for. We will most definitely return and don't want to recommend it acutally because it makes booking harder again.
