Glenfern Sanctuary

Both Fitzroy House and Glenfern Cottage are available for holiday rental accommodation, weddings and corporate functions. The historic buildings are positioned overlooking Pt FitzRoy and are set among mature gardens and lawns. They are located within Glenfern Sanctuary which is a fenced, pest controlled restoration project. Access is via the main road or by boat.
Fitzroy House and Glenfern Cottage are ideal holiday homes for those with a boat for fishing and exploring the harbour and coastline, as a base from which to explore the island on foot or by vehicle, or simply as a place to get away from it all and experience life at a slower pace.

Glenfern Cottage...

Glenfern Cottage was built adjacent to the main house in 1923, and has been completely renovated to offer clean, comfortable accommodation for up to six people.
The Cottage is a self-contained, 3 bedroom separate entity. There are 3 bedrooms (one queen, two single beds, and one bunk bed) 
There's 1 bathroom (with shower, basin and toilet) and a kitchen/living area and several/entertainment areas.
The kitchen/lounge is well-equipped and comfortable, with French-doors opening onto two porches, both having marvellous views out over the Port and set against Barrier's native-bush-covered hills.
A Logaire fireplace in the lounge makes the cottage cosy and warm in the winter. The self-contained domestic facilities include all linen, towels, cutlery, crockery, pots, pans and the basic condiments.
The Cottage has a full-size fridge/freezer and a gas stove.
