Room Descriptions

OLD SCHOOL
Constructed of stone blocks and dark stained timber floors, the original ceiling still exists of packing case detail. The artificial wood-grained architraves have been rejuvenated as at Martindale stately mansion. The shingle roof was replaced with iron in the 1880 drought, to form a common roof with the adjoining Settlers Cottage. The cellar beneath the school was originally the cottage kitchen. Today the two classrooms comprise a double bedroom with modern ensuite and sitting room with kitchenette facilities. The School House is decorated and furnished in early Victorian style with artefacts from Mintaro School. The School House provides all the required linen, television, electric blankets, abundant breakfast provisions and wood for the open-hearth fireplace.

Furnished appropriately, it includes an 18th century dresser and drop-side table, which are enhanced by the stone-faced interior walls. The left wing livery has been converted to a fully equipped, compact, country-style kitchen. The Coach House is set amongst a superb cottage garden. All linen, television, electric blankets and abundant breakfast provisions are supplied.

CHAPEL
The Chapel became known locally as the Honeymoon Cottage, as several young married couples lived there until they could establish their own homes. The quaint, humble building features a vaulted ceiling and slate floors. Still furnished ecclesiastically, a kitchen and traditional bathroom have been incorporated without detracting from the chapel's colonial integrity. All linen, television, electric blankets, abundant breakfast provisions and firewood for the open fireplace are supplied.

Settlers Cottage
Constructed of pug and stone, with 400 millimetre thick walls, slab slate floors and open hearth fireplaces. In the colonial era, it was common for the kitchen to be separate from the main building and often half underground. The current cellar was originally the kitchen (scullery and smokehouse root cellar). The cottage retains its original fittings and colours. The soft blue in the two main rooms was originally a slurry of washing blue and whitewash. Colonial furnishings complete the ambience. More recent kitchen updates with laundry provide essential conveniences. The cottage is positioned amidst evergreen lawns and lavender hedgerows alongside the pear-tree lined drive. It contains all linen, television, electric blankets, abundant breakfast provisions as well as fire-wood for the parlour fireplace.
