PINKERTON HILL at 40 Pinkerton Road is a large, country-style house on the eastern edge of Naracoorte. With five bedrooms and three bathrooms, it offers space and privacy to singles, couples, families and groups – including corporate guests.
It’s a self-contained Bed and Breakfast, private for one guest group at a time, whether for one guest or eight, so you don’t share with anyone you don’t know. Tariffs are based on the number of guests and the number of nights; and include full breakfast provisions.
The location is very popular with guests who like the peace and quiet of a secluded rural setting which is still within the town.
A feature is the huge open living area comprising a modern kitchen and adjoining family room, dining room and sitting room – coolly air conditioned in summer or cosily heated by two combustion heaters in winter.
Pinkerton Hill is set back from a residential street and is surrounded by an acre of lawn and native trees. There’s undercover parking for two vehicles, ample driveway parking and a sheltered back verandah which is ideal for a barbecue overlooking the back lawn.
The kitchen and family room are great for casual eating and chatting over meals, drinks and snacks. There’s a cooktop, double oven, microwave, dishwasher, cookware, cutlery, crockery and glasses.
The family room has a TV and DVD player, as well as cable TV; and the sitting room has a TV and DVD player.
Pinkerton Hill’s main bathroom has a full-sized bath, shower and vanity; and the WC is in a separate adjoining room. There’s also a two-person spa bathroom with vanity; and an ensuite bathroom with shower, vanity and WC. A third WC adjoins the laundry, which has a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.
The house has ducted reverse cycle air conditioning so you can adjust the heating or cooling to suit your comfort level. The wood-burning combustion heaters are very effective in winter.
A barbecue is available on the back verandah which overlooks the extensive lawn and native trees and shrubs.
The 3.5-star rated Pinkerton Hill is one of four properties owned and run by Naracoorte Cottages. (The others are MacDonnell House, Limestone View and Smith Street Villa.) Richard Peake and Judy Barton established this “people friendly” Bed and Breakfast business in 1995 and have welcomed thousands of satisfied guests from South Australia, interstate and overseas.
Naracoorte Cottages offers comfort, convenience and cleanliness with all modern amenities. The B&Bs are ideal for singles, couples, families and groups – as well as corporate guests – for one overnight stopover or a longer stay. They are private for one guest group at a time – even if there’s only one guest.
The houses have plasma TVs, DVD players, free local call telephones, free access to wireless broadband (BYO laptop or desktop computer) and reverse cycle air conditioning.
Bed linen, towels and toiletries are provided.
