Hanigan’s Cottage


Special - Book 2 nights and stay a 3rd night free! *Conditions apply.
Nestled between the Cambewarra Range and the Pacific Ocean lies Hanigan's Cottage, an historic 1920s farmhouse that has been upgraded to a luxury standard whilst remaining soaked in character. Surrounded by dairy farms and with a stunning view out over the lush pastures to the mountains, you can feel the stress melt away as you take in the clean country air.
Just over 2hrs drive from Sydney and 2hrs 45 from Canberra, Hanigan's Cottage suits couples and families alike. The cottage sleeps up to six in three luxury appointed bedrooms, with a spacious living area with wood burning heater, and a bath with a view to die for, whilst outside a full acre of lush green pasture provides space to relax and spread out.
The kitchen has been set up for the country gourmet, including a high-end Nespresso machine, all the equipment you need to use the abundance of local produce to create a simple meal or why not try that recipe you have been planning for ages? The eat-in kitchen with it's glass-fronted fireplace (firewood provided May-September) is at the heart of the house and comes equipped with everything you need.
The bathroom has an oversized tub and is perfectly positioned to capture the view and every ounce of colour and light from the region's glorious sunsets - a glass of champagne or your favourite beverage is all that's needed to turn this from an ordinary bath into a luxury experience.
The living area provides the space to sit and relax, with a modern LCD screen to watch free-to-air TV, Netflix, and a host of streaming services, all supported by high-speed NBN access.
The rear deck is the perfect outdoor location for al fresco cooking and dining, complete with a barbeque with hood and all the equipment needed to create outstanding pizzas (including a simple and wonderful recipe for pizza bases and topping suggestions). Enjoy your meal on the outdoor dining set or grab a chair and drink and enjoy gorgeous sunsets around the large firepit – complete with grill, if you want to try cooking with fire. Stay as long as you like with outdoor lighting allowing you to stay outdoors beyond sunset.
Exploring the farm paddock, you’ll find Hanigan’s Shed, complete with Hanigan’s Sundowners Bar, along with a table tennis table, dart board and other great games for all ages to enjoy in the paddock.
The local area is also rich with potential experiences, including wineries such as The Silos, Coolangatta Estate, and Two Figs all within a few minutes drive. Shoalhaven Heads provides a patrolled beach at the southern end of world-famous Seven Mile Beach. The beautiful villages of Berry, Gerroa, and Gerringong are close by, whilst further afield lies the stunning Kangaroo Valley and the natural beauty and wonder of Jervis Bay. Nowra provides a solid base for shopping, provisions, and restaurants.
Hanigan's Cottage is pet-friendly, with a fully-fenced yard to keep your fur babies safe. We're happy for you to bring your dogs and cats as long as you clean up after them and keep them off the furniture. (An additional $50 cleaning fee applies).

Great farm stay!


A delightful stay

Brandon - 18th June 2024

We had a delightful 3-night stay at this charming farm cottage. The scenery was absolutely stunning, with rolling hills and beautiful landscapes providing a perfect backdrop for a peaceful getaway. The tranquility of the location made it an ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cottage itself was incredibly well-appointed, with all the amenities we could have possibly needed. It was clean, cozy, and beautifully decorated, making us feel right at home. The attention to detail was evident in every aspect, from the comfortable furnishings to the fully equipped kitchen. Our host was exceptionally responsive and accommodating, ensuring that our stay was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Any questions or requests we had were promptly addressed, making our experience even more pleasant. We highly recommend this farm cottage for anyone looking for a serene and well-equipped getaway in a breathtaking location. We can't wait to return!


We fell in love with the house, so did our dogs!

Erin - 25th August 2023

We fell in love with the house as soon as we walked in and so did our dogs who could explore the property safely. We didn’t want to leave and will definitely be back.


Highly recommend!

Kylie - 1st August 2023

From the moment we arrived this quaint little cottage had us hooked! We were looking for a getaway to recharge the batteries, where we didn't have to go anywhere, just enjoy the beautiful space and relax in peaceful surroundings! The bedrooms with their luxurious and comfortable beds were amazing! The kitchen, the heart of the home provided everything we needed to cook up a storm! The lounge was a comfortable, sunlit space to relax and enjoy some movie marathons! The bathroom was first class with the generous bath and a sensational view! I could not fault this historically charming property! We had a wonderful stay! Highly recommend!


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay..!

Anne - 27th July 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming and rustic cottage which is located in peaceful surroundings with wonderful views. It was the most relaxing holiday we have had for some time and we will definitely be back again.


Great for small family getaway!

Carol - 27th July 2023

Great for small family getaway. Well equipped kitchen. Quiet location but close to local attractions.


A wonderful weekend with friends!

Linda - 23rd April 2023

We had a wonderful weekend with friends at Hanigan's. The location was peaceful and private yet so close to Berry, only a 10 min drive away. The cottage itself is beautifully appointed and has everything you need for your stay and the beds were the best I've ever slept on. So comfortable. The huge "shed" was a great place to hang out for afternoon drinks with friends while watching the sunset and listening to birds and the nearby cows. Very relaxing. I'm already looking forward to our next stay.
