Travelling south along Bussell Highway and just prior to entering Margaret River township, turn right into Carters Road, travel 4.5 kms and (just beyond the junction with Burnside Road) and turn left into the tree-lined driveway. Proceed for 500 metres and the manager's residence is on the left hand side.

Located in the heart of the picturesque Margaret River wine appellation, Bussells Bushland Cottages is a gazetted “Land for Wildlife” and “Wildlife Land Trust” sanctuary. The rustic charm of these 8 well-appointed (self-contained) rammed-earth cottages is complemented by the natural (20 hectare) bush block, well treed with jarrah, marri, banksia and peppermint trees; and home to prolific birdlife, possums, brush-tailed phascogales (wambengers), bandicoots and kangaroos.
Bussells Bushland Cottages is a 20 hectare (50 acre) "Land for Wildlife" property, located 5kms north-west of Margaret River township. 

8 rammed-earth cottages set apart in order to preserve privacy and are self-contained with full kitchen, dining and living facilities, an outdoor BBQ, wood-fired potbelly stove in the living room and ceiling fans in all bedrooms (except those with double bunks). Each cottage shares 1 bathroom. 

Walk trails criss-cross the bush block which has wonderful stands of old-growth jarrah, marri, banksia and peppermint trees, as well as being home to a wide variety of bird life and mobs of kangaroos. A simple 'starter' breakfast is provided for the first morning, otherwise this is a self-catering property.  Wi-Fi is available free-of-charge. Although limited, it should be adequate for e-mails and streaming.

We stayed here three nights for a holiday trip. Very close to Margaret River township. The cottages are all in a bush setting which is nice and peaceful. You can also walk in the bushland surrounding the place. Everything inside were comfortable and full size kitchen. The wood burner was also great for those evening fires. Can definitely recommend.

This is the best place I've stayed in the Margaret River area. Close to town, and with awesome walk trails through the bush at the property and great views of the surrounding farms and area. The cottage was very well equipped for a winter stay and had great amenities and interior. Also wanted to give a thanks to the property managers, really responsive and were able to make changes to my booking with no hassles. Overall a great stay!

What a great find these cottages were. They are set in a beautiful secluded bush setting with kangaroos and other wildlife at your door, yet conveniently a short drive to town and other amenities. They are super well equipped and very clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back and recommend to others.

Great location. Neat and tidy! Breakfast sorted with orange juice, milk, cereal, toast. Cut fire wood ready to go for the fireplace. BBQ and fully contained kitchen. Loved the electric blanket and heating! Also loved waking up to kangaroos every where and kookaburra’s to say good morning to you! It’s beautiful. If you love your coffee BYO coffee beans they have a French coffee press no coffee machine, however you are only mins away from Margs! So relaxing will be back again
