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.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my family. We enjoyed this place very much. It’s quite far in, amongst the forest but you will be treated with some wildlife ie. Kangaroos at your door step. The place is very quiet and peaceful and you will have a good sleep. Very well equipped cottage, each bedroom comes with heated mattress and it’s exceptionally helpful during winter. Easy check in and check out. One thing that can be improved is the wifi. It’s really slow.

This is a fantastic, private and rustic, bushland accommodation location. 8 cosy cabins, nestled amongst wildlife filled bush, far enough apart for privacy, yet not far enough to feel isolated. Full kitchens, wood fire and reverse cycle air-conditioning, this family run property is a real gem in Margaret River. We're so glad we chose it for our recent stay and would return again if opportunity presented.

We had an absolutely incredible experience staying at this accommodation. It felt like a hidden gem nestled in the wilderness, providing us with a serene and peaceful atmosphere. The highlight was undoubtedly spotting Kangaroos right in our backyard, adding a touch of enchantment to our stay. The kitchenware is clean, washroom is clean and the heated bed is awesome. If we ever have the opportunity to visit Margaret River again, we will definitely choose to return to this wonderful place.

Amazing place. Amongst the bush. Plenty wildlife. All you need to have a great few days feeling like you are far away but actually so close to everything!
