Stay at the Clyde River Cottage to find your serenity

A one bedroom Cottage with the use of a private jetty

Nestled at the end of a Riverside Lane in Nelligen, the Clyde River Cottage is clean, spacious and a little bit quirky. Packed full of features to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Your own private jetty right on the Clyde River. A perfect place to fish, read, practice yoga or just enjoy the solitude. A riverside barbecue and fireplace are provided so you can dine by the river or have twilight drinks at sunset.

The Steampacket Hotel is located just out of the Nelligen Village. It is a short drive. Though it is possible to walk there, it is not recommended. The hotel has a bistro and wood fired pizzas. However you will need to check to see if these facilities are operational.
