Step back in time and appreciate how generations of the past lived.

The space

Dalgety Cottage is an original 1900's old worker's cottage. All furnishings are from 1900's until 1950's, including the wrought iron/brass double bed,a claw-foot wrought iron bath (with shower). Wandoo and Jarrah flooring. Cooking facilities are basic. We've added a gas stove-top, so cooking easier now.

You'll find a lot of different birds around the house: honey eaters, willy wagtail, fantail, occasionally you'll see pelicans and whistling kites. We also have a family of bandicoots!

There is a big number 62 on the gate and parking opposite the cottage

We stayed at Gerry’s place for a wedding in the Swan Valley & it was an excellent base for the region. Gerry was very helpful & quick to respond to messages, while giving us our privacy during our stay. The quirky cottage has clearly had a lot of love poured into it - as evidenced by the photo album showing how it was constructed.

Gerry's Dalgety Cottage was immaculate on arrival + in a very private peaceful location in her lush garden. Really appreciated the eggs and milk in fridge on arrival. Loved the bike ride to Taylor's. Lovely linen and towels. The birdsong at dawn magical.Looking forward to next visit. Thankyou Gerry(URL HIDDEN)Love Chrissie

Quaint old time feel with modern amenities. Great location with wonderful seclusion but close to Swan Valley amenities. We loved it.

The cottage is very nice. It is set back from the road, nestled amongst trees. It is very quiet, peaceful and private. It is near several wineries, cafes, art galleries and a chocolate shop so there is plenty to explore in the local area. I enjoyed staying there and certainly will plan to stay there again if I'm back in Perth.

The cottage is adorable and well-equipped. Perfect for a couple for a weekend getaway - it has everything you need to hole up in winter, and visit wineries/eateries. There are also some day hikes not far away (we weren't organised enough to do them though.) You do need a car to get anywhere, and there isn't much of interest in the immediate surrounds, but it's great access to Swan Valley and airport (20 mins).

About Gerry

I'm from Dutch descent, my husband Pieter is originally from South-Africa and we've lived in WA since 1988. We've live in the Swan Valley since 1991 and love working around the house and in the garden. We also run the Antique Restoration Centre in Wembley. As I'm momentarily very busy, my oldest daughter Yara is helping me out. Whenever possible I will try and say hi, and you can always contact me with any issues.
