SHOWGROUNDS COTTAGE at 198 Smith Street is opposite the Showgrounds, a popular events venue, and close to the centre of Naracoorte.

It’s a self-contained Bed and Breakfast, private for one guest group at a time, whether for one guest or four, 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 1900 timber cottage has two bedrooms and one bathroom. There is a queen-sized bedroom and a twin bedroom with two king single beds.

The sitting/dining room has a comfortable leather sofa and two recliners, a wood-burning combustion heater, TV and DVD player.

In the bathroom are a spa bath, a separate shower and vanity. Next door is a separate WC. The laundry area has a washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board.

The galley kitchen has a cooktop, oven, microwave, rainwater tap, cookware, cutlery, crockery and glasses.

Showgrounds Cottage has reverse cycle air conditioners in the sitting/dining room and bedrooms; and a wood-burning combustion heater in the sitting/dining room.

A feature is a modern back verandah with decking and a barbecue and outdoor setting – ideal for casual meals, drinks and snacks.

Showgrounds Cottage is one of five properties owned and run by Naracoorte Cottages.

(The others are MacDonnell House, Limestone View, Smith Street Villa and Pinkerton Hill.) 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. Tariffs are value for money and include generous full breakfast provisions (eggs, bacon, tomatoes, fruit juice, boxed cereals, bread, jams and spreads, tea, instant coffee, coffee grounds and milk); and a complimentary 750ml bottle of wine with every booking.

Families and children are welcome (cot, high chair and change table can be provided if needed). Note that MacDonnell House does not have any single ensemble beds, but a fold-up bed for a child can be provided.

Naracoorte Cottages has a 3-night minimum at Easter, a 3-night minimum when weekends coincide with 2 public holidays and a 2-night minimum on other public holiday long weekends. Acceptance of bookings of our larger houses for small groups may be declined, depending on the availability of smaller houses and the demand at different times of year, such as peak holiday periods.
