Wake up to the sound of birds and the whispering wind in this romantic hideaway set amidst 30ha of trees, fields and vineyards at "Wuthering Heights" 6 kilometres north of Clare.

Many a wonderful evening has been spent at Cathy's Cottage sampling the local vintages while enjoying a BBQ - gas in summer or wood-fired in winter.

Restful views of trees and grassy hills will soothe the soul.

When you’re tired of exploring the meandering paths, visiting the alpacas or the dam, or taking the dog for a run, you can reach for the port decanter and curl up in front of the combustion heater, or watch your favourite Foxtel program.

Open Fire Pit

On a clear night, it's lovely to sit around an open fire, outside, toasting marshmallows or cooking sausages.  The Clare Wood Yard (108 Blyth Rd) can provide you with some chunks of long-burning firewood, so why not pick some up on your way in? They're open Mon to Fri: 9-12 & 1-5; Sat: 9-12; Sun-closed.
If you just want a small amount of additional wood, please call us in the morning - on 0418 859 592 - before midday and we will deliver 15 pieces for a fee of $20 in the evening. (While we'd love to be able to provide more, there's a high labour cost in felling the tree and chopping the wood.)
Please note, however, that fire wood will not be provided between November 1st and April 30th as there is a total Fire Ban in the Mid North which includes the Clare Valley.)

Of course, you'll stay warm, regardless, as Cathy's Cottage has a reverse cycle air conditioner and, at bedtime, cosy electric blankets will stave off the winter chill.

The silent nights, and mornings filled with birdsong, are among treasured memories to take away.

There is a minimum three-night stay on all Public Holiday weekends and a four-night minimum stay over Christmas and Easter.
A "Fur Fee" of $20 is charged per dog for the duration of stay.
Please enquire for discounted rates for longer stays.
