Morris Cottage in Garden Wonderland

Morris Cottage is the collection of 2 beautifully restored and renovated Victorian cottages surrounded by a stunning landscaped English/Australian-style cottage garden. Built in 1896 by William and Lucy Morris, both the main cottage and the Garden Guest Cottage (once William’s gold mining tool shed) sit together as idyllic havens. Providing flexible accommodation as a cosy permanent home or country weekender with guest cottage, or as lucrative short stay accommodation, right in the heart of historic Trentham village.

Morris Cottage has been thoroughly restored to convey a stylish country vibe. A sheltered front verandah is the perfect vantage point for capturing stunning sunsets. Featuring a dark and moody lounge room with wood fire heater and built-in-bookshelves, showcasing lush green garden vistas framed by white timber windows. At the rear is a spacious country-style kitchen with an additional Nectar wood burning stove, plus a mud room and bathroom. There are 2 bedrooms, the main featuring built-in storage and window seating.

The Garden Guest Cottage has been similarly renovated and sits apart from the main house with separate access via a shared carport containing ample storage. This cosy cottage comfortably sleeps 2 people and is well-appointed for a country getaway with a kitchenette/living room and bathroom.

A romantic feeling of nostalgia pervades the traditional English/Australian style country garden, meticulously designed by Kaz Krasovskis Landscape Design to perfectly compliment the Victorian cottages. The cooler climate of Trentham allows a uniquely stunning selection of plants to prosper, as demonstrated by many of the traditional plants grown at Morris Cottage. Mature deciduous trees provide shade in summer over manicured lawns.

Additional features include boxed vegetable beds surrounded by a white picket fence, fruiting berries, espalier apple trees, a chook pen, and potting shed. Both cottages are fully double glazed and insulated with 14 solar panels.

In prime position within a serene and peaceful part of Trentham, directly opposite the Stony Creek Reserve where you can immerse yourself spotting kookaburras and kangaroos whilst meandering along the Wombat trail. Wonderfully secluded yet only a few minutes’ walk to into town to enjoy boutique shopping and eateries, Annie Smither’s renowned Du Fermier restaurant, and the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
