Emily, Charlotte and Anne have some fierce competition at Wuthering Heights in the Clare valley. The 19th century literary trio grew up traipsing over the remote Yorkshire moors dreaming up their tragic tales – Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
A century and a half later, the three Nettelton sisters – Beverley, Tanika and Penny – gained inspiration of various kinds, tramping over the rolling hills and across dry creek beds at Wuthering Heights.
Some of it was literary. Beverley (who writes historical romance laced with scandal and intrigue as Beverley Eikli and Beverley Oakley) concocted many of her wicked plots during midnight walks on the beautiful Clare Valley property.
Other inspiration that fuelled the fires of creativity led to the building of the mud brick house and cottage.
