Bidstone Cottages

Camping in the true wilderness, next to a stream with only an eco toilet.

The Bidstone Cottages Campsite
If you are a Self Sufficient Camper who likes Camping in "true wilderness" then we have the spot for YOU!
No shower (bring Your own ) Only a river and an Eco toilet.

Good things take time... we are slowly but surely increasing our range of farm produce to include free range meats and organically grown vegetables.

The 1 acre garden, Trout dam and pristine setting offer peace and tranquility, whether sitting under the brilliant stars enjoying a pizza from our outdoor wood fired oven or swinging in a hammock bird watching the Weavers nesting over the water. We welcome children and encourage them to feed the free range pigs, ride our miniature pony and pick veggies from the garden. We are also Pet Friendly.

Bidstone Cottages are a welcome beacon after a day of Adventure Biking, Skiing or 4x4 touring the surrounding 8 Passes and taking in the natural beauty of Rhodes, Tiffindell Ski Resort and The Wartrail. Your host Allan Isted offers Rock Art Tours to the surrounding sites and is knowledgeable and engaging on the history of Bushman paintings.

Allan is also the head guide for the local Wartrail Slackpacking Hike.
