Bussells Bushland Cottages

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.

This was the best accommodation I stayed at during my Australian holiday. The cottages are modern and everything looks brand new. Immaculately next level clean. Spacious, lofted ceilings, lovely surroundings all add up to a good stay. You can tell that the owners take care of the place with nice additional touches like heated mattresses. Will definitely book this again next time I’m in the area.

Absolutely LOVED staying here for 9 nights. The land is beautiful and the walks so peaceful. You're an 8minute drive into Margaret River town so even though you feel secluded, you aren't. The accommodation was clean and well presented with everything you need and the hosts are very friendly and on site if needed. We'll definitely be back and recommending to friends.

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.
