Description
Clonmara is a rare and special blend of country style boutique accommodation that is located just moments to heritage listed Port Fairy township and stunning coastal beaches and walks. The main house or Country House as we like to refer to it and the Clonmara Stone Cottage were built in circa 1855 and exudes all the warmth and charm of a by gone era. They are beautifully presented, have all the creature comforts of modern day life plus more and we are so excited to be offering them for guests to enjoy. The outbuildings that we also offer consist of four separate cottages that co-exist within the beautiful gardens and four acres. At Clonmara we want to say that your stay and experience is our priority. We are on hand nearby for any assistance and to offer our laid back country lifestyle we enjoy so much...but we also respect your privacy and each guests preferences and will work to accommodate you in whatever way is best for you. Please come, stay and enjoy this special place.
