This was the kitchen and living area for Sarah, Samuel and their four children in the mid 1880s. It would have been furnished with a table which was used to prepare food, do sewing repairs, serve dinner and may have served as a bed for the younger children.
Today two comfortable single beds are draped with pre-loved heritage quilts and crisp white linen, electric blanket, doona with wool or cotton blankets in the wardrobe
Timber floors are painted with black japan and finished by hand with wax. Walls are painted with a traditional non allergenic distemper giving them a soft velvet finish. Joinery colours are those used in the house around the 1880s.
A large traditional bathroom, with shower over the tub, and a separate toilet are shared with one other room. Complimentary toiletries are included. Our solar hot water uses renewable energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 40%.
Our Samuel Bendall room has a queen size bed
