Definitely something to crow about…. release of two: latest dry red and sparkling

August 12, 2019
There is always a great sense of excitement and anticipation with a new release and in the past few weeks its been E and A X 2 with: : the bottling of our latest dry red 3 MEN AND THE MOON 2017, a medium bodied blend of Cab/Sav and Shiraz. Terranzo and the Little Cellar Rat have been taste-testing it with a variety of dishes from home-made pizza to slow cooked Country Hot Pot of lamb chops, to a full Lamb roast to Pasta alla Bolognese. The LCR has picked up a flavour profile of dark cherry, plum and a hint of cedar box. and the disgorging and release of the latest 3 Marys SPARKLING and in this case it’s back to the original MUSCAT and no, it is not sweet, it’s a delicious just off dry with flavours of white peach, rose petal and finishing with dried orange rind. You are welcome to disagree with these completely …. but you’ll have to try it to know! more details…. go to OUR WINES PAGE

Hmmm…. why stay at a BNB?

August 11, 2019

You stay for the little things you can’t buy.
Birds in all shapes and sizes gravitate towards a place that provides shelter, food, variety in foliage, corridors of plantings.
We are privileged to be surrounded by birdsong – Rufous Whistlers, Grey Shrike Thrushes, Spangled Drongoes, Mr Willy Wagtail, all freely offered in joy.

Why stay at a bnb? Here’s another reason why.

‘Cosiness’ is one of those evocative words that can mean different things to different people. If it means a ‘little place and space’ where you can leave aside the hassles of the day to day world of dead-lines, decision-making, time-tables then timber in all its nuances certainly helps create an ambience of cosiness that nurtures.

It’s what we like to offer our guests.
Another reason to choose BNB.

Our feather friends -2

July 9, 2019

IF YOU PROVIDE IT, THEY WILL COME.
A bit of a scrub, an empty out and refill with fresh water.

Within minutes,they arrive. In for a dip, hop on a rock, shake those tail feathers and off they go.
Such a reward for just a little effort.

Our feathered friends -1

July 9, 2019

We so love our trees (even if they do involve pruning, raking leaves…. but of course, that makes fabulous compost and mulch)
Apart from the shade, flowers and assorted other beauty, trees and shrubs bring our feathered friends.
The Spangled Drongo is such a show off and don’t we love those ‘show-offy’ ways of his. If he’s not swooping and whooping and diving, he’s sharing his vocal talents with all and sundry. He’s a fabulous mimic.
Thank you Mr SPANGLED DRONGO with your shiny-green black coat and fish-tail.

Local, seasonal, roasted…. DELISH!!!

July 6, 2019

The Little Cellar Rat likes to use sweet potato, English potato, eggplant, capsicum and carrot as a basis then depending on availability, $$ etc, add in parsnip, swede and even zucchini.
For potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, swede: Scrub and leave the skin on OR peel, (depending on how they look) and cut into large chunks or ‘fat fingers’. Microwave or steam for 4-5 minutes then throw into a deepish pan with chunks of capsicum, eggplant and zucchini. Massage everything with just little olive oil and roast in a VERY HOT OVEN, checking occasionally, until you get a chargrilled look.
Cool a little and put into a large bowl with torn basil leaves, de-seeded large green olives and a sprinkling of fresh lemon thyme if you have some.
buon appetito!!

It is the small touches that make a difference, touches such as some local Fortified Red (yes… we used to say PORT but that, joins the likes of CHAMPAGNE) When it’s chilly and damp outside, a nip of THREE RIGHT HANDS fits the bill nicely.
THREE RIGHT HANDS FORTIFIED RED – Made on site by hosts MARY AND TERRY BYRNE. Lipsmackingly good!

A country morning blessed by sunrise

June 12, 2019

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift… that’s why it’s called ‘the present’.
It might sound a little corny but hey, corny’s good, just like the gift of a country sunrise, unfettered and available to all.
The Little Cellar Rat is really a lark, bathed by the sun each morning.
