First up, the Clyde River Cottage is not absolute waterfront. It is just a 30 metre walk to the jetty/waterfront area which is for your use during your stay. In between your Cottage and the River is our house. Though we may meet you upon arrival, we remain as unobtrusive as possible. On many occasions, you may not even see us during your stay.
We are located on the Clyde River less than a kilometre downstream from the historic village of Nelligen. Being in a dead end laneway means no traffic. Only a couple of dozen houses on this side of the river.
At Nelligen, there is just one shop – ideal for a coffee or fish and chips.
Batemans Bay is just a 7 minute drive away with all the amenities you would expect to find in a large regional centre.
Canberra is 140kms away. Under a 2 hour drive.
Sydney is 330kms away and takes between 3.5 to 4 hours.
