After taking mandatory shots of the oldest operating bridge in Australia we returned to the cottage. The house had all modern facilities and equipment but was very old. I was surprised to find an information booklet which contained copies of deeds since its construction in 19th century. Walking around the cottage we found two bedrooms, a lounge room and dine-in kitchen. The lounge had a functional fireplace, which we didn't use since it was pretty warm, and complimentary port and chocolates, which we did use despite it being pretty warm. One bedroom was apparently reserved for kids, as there were teddy bears on beds. I wonder how many children didn't want to let go of a teddy bear when they left the cottage. Laurel Cottage would be just right for a family with kids but was an overkill for a couple; it felt a bit desolate with the empty second bedroom.
