Chanticleer Gardens oozes romance and that weekend “getaway to the country” feel and is ideal for a group of friends to escape the city or a family stay. 

This country retreat offers a two bedroom cottage with two bathrooms, an open plan kitchen, dinning and a large cathedral ceiling lounge-room with a fireplace to snuggle around in winter. It is fully airconditioned.

Café style windows and French doors open onto an expansive covered verandah with views of a magnificent garden and rural acreage. 

It is separated and secluded from the main residence, by a long avenue of Golden Elm trees. The pool, although not completely private, is share only with the property owners. Rarely do they swim!

The rural cottage garden is just abuzz with birds and bees, so right for that “love is in the air” occasion, blending the romantic with the slightly worn look of an old farm gate and stylish clipped hedging. Barn doors complete the "Cameo" picture for the wedding day.

It is the perfect setting for a small romantic wedding celebration, intimate dinner party for special friends or even just for the wedding photos. 

The imagery of white banquet tables blending with the green of the overhead canopy of the spreading pear trees, sunlight sparkling through the leaves, creates that feel of a Mediterranean vineyard on a warm summers day.

What about a long picnic table under an avenue of golden elm trees.

Wanting a picnic setting or high tea for your birthday party or bridal shower with low Moroccan tables, rugs and cushions spread under umbrellas on one of the lawn areas?

There are so many different romantic styles that can be designed within one of the many garden rooms and the changing seasons of the garden all lends to the beauty and ambience of the day.

Any social gatherings will be priced to include a two day hire of accommodation for 6 guests, otherwise the Barn cottage can be hired for accommodation only.


Summer Hours 10am to 7.30pm. Winter Hours 10am -5pm.



We offer a continental breakfast of croissants, fresh pod coffee, and cereals. Complimentary cheese and crackers are also provided.

“I had booked the one bedroom apartment for my birthday weekend at Chanticleer and found ourselves upgraded to the house which was fantastic. The décor was delightful and we could see the beautiful gardens from every window.”
