Patterson Cottage BNB Naracoorte


Old but modern Circa 1890s

Discover the Charm of an 1890s cottage in central Naracoorte

Patterson Cottage  

Patterson Cottage is a much loved Circa 1890s stone cottage located in central Naracoorte near the Coonawarra wine district, where wineries are plentiful. It is also home to the World Heritage listed Naracoorte Caves, once a predator-den, containing the skeletons of Australian megafauna dating back 500,000 years.

The Cottage Renovations 

The Cottage was purchased in June 2021 and required a lot of love and attention in order to preserve this beautiful home that is full of charm and character. The cottage is now fitted out as a 3 bedroom home with 2 living areas plus library and office. 

All reservation income goes back into  further restoration and improvements of this lovely old home.

Red Flowering Gum

The front yard has an enormous red flowering gum that we have been advised is the 2nd most renowned of its species in South Australia. You may be lucky enough to see it in full flower.

The Cottage

Our understanding is the cottage was built in at least 3 stages with the original dwelling being only the 2 front rooms (Now the main bedroom and library) with its pre-sash windows and obscure glass. The family room, kitchen and other bedrooms added either late 1890s or early 1900s.
