About Bussells Bushland Cottages


Located just five kilometers northwest of the Margaret River township and set in a historic dairy farming country, Bussells Bushland Cottages occupies 50 acres of pristine forest and is a Land for Wildlife property. The eight rammed-earth cottages were fully refitted between 2011 and 2013 and are spaced apart in order to provide privacy and tranquility. Walking trails crisscross the property and visitors can view kangaroos among other small animals and many bird varieties as they stroll amongst the forest and around the perimeter. The bush block has many examples of towering jarrah and marri as well as two varieties of banksia, peppermint, western woody pear, and “snotty gobble”. It’s particularly attractive from late September to early November when wildflowers are out in profusion. Bussells Bushland Cottages is just a five-minute drive from Margaret River township’s three supermarkets, variety of shops, bars, and restaurants, and it is within easy driving distance of beaches, chocolate and cheese factories, numerous wineries, superb coastal scenery, and all the major attractions of this wonderful region. It’s a self-catering property, and apart from a simple starter breakfast which is provided for the first morning, guests need to self-cater or eat out at one of many restaurants. For those seeking peaceful surroundings in a tranquil bushland setting, Bussells Bushland Cottages is a good choice.

Unique Experience
Peace and Serenity, nature all around, comfortable accommodation.
A truly unique experience that I have had had before. Each cottage is secluded, you cannot hear or see any neighbours. The entire facility allows you to walk around the forest trials that surround the cottages. Kangaroos hopping around. Silence and peace. Dont expect any facilities or services. You stay at Bushland simply for the ambience and the back to nature experience. The Bussells is not for everyone but for those looking for a return to nature.I am not a nature person but I enjoyed myself. Manager was wonderful, helpful and made the holiday even more special.

Great cottage in the woods!
The cottage is spacious and clean, located in the quiet woods with wild kangaroos spotted behind the cottage.
The stay was very pleasant and our kid enjoyed picking firewood from the forest and chopping them with axe followed by setting up fire in the fireplace.

Homely and amazing location
The peaceful location, the homely cabin and the ease of access to all the surrounding areas in Margaret River
This is the second time we have stayed at the cottages and we were yet again blown away by the location of the accommodation. If you like the wildness you will love it here with Kangaroos coming right up to your door and parrots and Kookaburras making the occasional visit. The cottages are also fully equipped and are fitted with a lovely wood burner which is great to use in the cooler months.

Lovely cottage! Wish I had stayed longer!
Very clean, spacious and fully equipped kitchen
It was nice to be able to park our car right at the door step. Once u enter the cottage, u will feel how homely it is and despite it being cold, it gives u a warm feeling. The cottage is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. There is instruction manuals to everything in the cottage from fireplace to television. Very helpful indeed especially cos we have never set a fire for fireplace before. The kitchen was very well equipped and has everything we need. I think it might be hot during summer since there is no air conditioning in the cottage. But it was a joy during winter when we were there. It was cold so the fireplace is just what we need. We see kangeroos around the cottages and it was a refreshing experience. The starter breakfast was thoughtful as well. Thanks for the awesome stay and experience!

Calm stay
Kangaroos sightings, serene environment, sky full of stars
Great 2 bed room bungalows which offered everything needed for an extended stay. Very helpful manager. Great surroundings with frequent sightings of friendly kangaroos. The accomodation is clean, and we appreciated the fact that the bungalows were not too near to each other. Recommended stay away from the bussle of the city. Amazing views at night of the stars in the sky.
