Located just 700 metres to the west of the town centre, in the heart of the picturesque Margaret River wine appellation, Peppermint Brook Cottages offers convenience, comfort and affordability.
Our 8 well-appointed (self-contained) brick and iron cottages surround a central lawned area and gas-fired BBQs are available for outdoor living. Each cottage has a covered verandah with an outdoor setting, and guests are often seen relaxing outside while watching the birds and the resident free-range chickens.
We’re just a leisurely stroll from the Visitors’ Centre, shops, bars and restaurants.
Affordable & Family Friendly
With its affordability, easy accessibility and convenience to all of the region’s delights, Peppermint Brook Cottages is highly regarded by many visitors who return again and again.
Why Gumnuts? Star Rating Australia cut inspections to every 3 years, but want to charge an annual fee. We believe this to be out of order and have resigned from the scheme.
In the heart of Margaret River
Located just 700 metres from the centre of Margaret River, yet in a semi-rural environment, Peppermint Brook Cottages is a pleasant 5-minute stroll from the visitor’s centre, art galleries, boutiques, gourmet shops, supermarket, cafes, restaurants and bars.
