It's the comment that we "will definitely be back again" which fills us with the greatest pleasure. The property has been operating for around 30 years and we know that those young people who came and stayed in the 1980s and 1990s are now returning with their children and grandchildren. We are only the 2nd owners, having purchased Bussells Bushland...

The cottage was extremely clean and comfortable. Set in the midst of bushland, there are several walking trails to explore. In the morning, we had visits from the native birds and kangaroos just outside the cottage. The reception is only open for a few hours in the morning. So when we arrived in the afternoon, the cottage key was prepared...

What a perfect place, peaceful, romantic, beautiful, warm and cosy. We intended to stay two nights and ended up staying for four nights! It is situated close to town but is so quiet and away from it all, it's ridiculous. Gail the manager was amazing. She greeted us with warmth, was extremely helpful and went the extra mile to accomodate...

Many thanks for your very kind comments, particularly in respect of the services of Gail and our cleaning staff (who do a fantastic job). I'm particularly pleased that you made the decision to extend your stay as 2 nights is never enough. The bush in winter is delightful and the opportunity to relax with a fire while the rain beats...

Had the most gorgeous stay at Bussells Cottages. The cottages are well equipped for an effortless experience. The kitchen: everything you need for cooking up a storm and clean with modern appliances. The bedroom: comfy beds with crisp white sheets and plenty of storage/hanging space. The bathroom: again well equipped with hairdryers, white towels and soaps/basic toiletries. The living areas:...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write in such detail.

Wow! What an amazing property and for so many reasons - the bush, the walk trails, the cottage, the comfy bed, and the lovely winter fire to warm us up.

We stayed at Bussells cottages 2 weeks ago for the first time and loved it! The cottage was very clean, cosy and functional. Everything we needed was in the cottage. As it is winter the wood fire oven was just perfect, it provided enough heat for the whole cottage and there was plenty of wood. It was such a quaint...

Fantastic location close to all that the Margaret River region has to offer!!!! Birds, kangaroos and other wildlife at your front door really enjoyed our stay here. Wood heater was great for the chilly nights and the kids loved the bush trails to explore

We're delighted to hear that you and your family enjoyed a few days of rest and recuperation. I agree that strolling along the bush trails during the winter months is a very special experience. So good for the kids and so good for us too!

Thank you for your very kind comments which will be greatly appreciated by Gail. As you know, we leave guests to enjoy themselves and only interact via the office during set business hours.

A late review as we stayed from 4 May to 7 May 2016. It was a second honeymoon - 20 years later - and SENSATIONAL! So peaceful and romantic.

Hi ho Janette I'm delighted to hear you enjoyed your recent visit at our "Land for Wildlife" property. Speaking of wildlife, when I visited a few days ago, there were around 100 kangaroos lolling in the pasture alongside our 600 metre driveway. I also disturbed around 50 while strolling through our 20 hectares of bush. Thank you for your appraisal...

Glamorous camping ! Actually it's much more luxurious than camping . The service was top notch and the manager even let us use her dryer when the rental one broke down. For a family of 4 the size is just right ! We had Cottage 3 , which has wonderful views of the kangaroos roaming just outside Highly recommend

Many thanks Francis Cath and I have just returned to Perth after staying 2 nights in Cottage 3. There are hundreds of kangaroos around at present, including 1 crazy one which was sprinting back and forth as if training for the Olympics. Thanks again and please pass the word amongst your friends and relatives.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our 8 rammed-earth cottages are fully self-contained, with each having 2 bedrooms (see note), fully-equipped kitchen, living 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 in recent years, following which we were awarded a 4-star rating by AAA. 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. ... more   less
