ON THE SPOT DECISION… one of the best!

May 14, 2019

Needed to break the journey, called on the off-chance there was a vacancy. So glad we did. Did not expect to find this little gem: cottage ambience, furniture with a story, generously stocked, best sleep ever. Just hope there’s a VACANCY next time we are this way. Thanks, Mary and Terry!

We came, we stayed, we re-charged

May 11, 2019

It’s been a challenging year. We needed ‘a bit of country’ to soothe the edges of the heart and our 4 day stay here was just that. It has been a haven to come back to each day after venturing out to enjoy the natural beauty of this part of Queensland.
Thank You. Nerida and Glen BRISBANE May 2019

Seasonal, local produce…. wow!

May 10, 2019

The Childers Bundaberg Area with its rich volcanic soil supplies 25% of Australia’s fresh produce and sweet potatoes, capsicum, tomatoes and avocados are just a sample of what you can pick up from roadside stalls and on-farm sheds. This is a glorious time of the year, with the stinging heat of summer banished to the back blocs for a few months, so why not do what guests in the past few weeks have done and use MANGO HILL BNB COTTAGES as a baser 3 or 4 days and head off on day trips, picking up fresh local food gems along the way. The Little Cellar Rat is only too happy to roast a panful for you to enjoy here and there is always a supply of jars for you to take the rest home… if they last that long!

Rich red soil….beautiful produce

May 8, 2019

Living in a rural area with rich and diverse seasonal produce provides a yardstick to gauge the progress of the year and the seasons. Avocados, those wonderful green packages of flavour, creaminess and goodness and are on offer at roadside stalls in the Childers-Bundaberg area. So too are capsicum and eggplant…. and who can forget our Sweet Potatoes. If you are staying here for a few days, the Little Cellar Rat will pan roast them for you.
They are the basis for an easy-peasy lunch or add them to a pasta, along with a little pesto and you have a meal!!
Enjoy with our HILL OF PROMISE BLACKBIRD SHIRAZ 2013…. a meal made in heaven.

buon appetito! buona cucina!

IT’S BACK…. GINGER CRUSH THAT IS.

April 30, 2019

I promised to let you know and here’s the heads up…. GINGER CRUSH, our devilishly popular ginger liqueur has been made, bottled and is back on the shelves.
Still $25 for that tropical, spicy and refreshingly tropical delight.
Pour over ice, ice-cream or drizzle over any fruit such as pawpaw, pineapple, pear even. buon appetito!

APRIL SHOWERS…

April 23, 2019

Weather this week definitely keeps you on your toes but the sound of rain on the roof and the song of a pair of spangled Blackbirds in the garden bring joy to the heart!

BUONA PASQUA!

April 23, 2019

Bring something for lunch on the verandah…. cheese platter or quiche.

Enjoy wine by the glass or bottle and finish with our great VITTORIA PLUNGER COFFEE.
GIVE MARIA THE LITTLE CELLAR RAT A CALL if you are making a special trip.

We don’t like to disappoint! 0408 875 305 4126 3470

Not far to drive but quite an escape

April 14, 2019

This region is one of contrasts as we discovered staying at Mango Hill Cottages. White sandy beach a comfortable 40 drive away (Woodgate … Shhhh! Locals want to keep it under wraps) Historic township of Childers so neat, tidy and full of well preserved history. Busy regional town of Bundaberg well worth spending a day or two and the drive over and back opens up some interesting landscape. Can definitely recommend, and one night is not enough!
