Jellore Cottage - Berrima, NSW

As you walk to the front door of Jellore Cottage from the gate in the old grey picket fence you have to brush past the English lavender that lines each side of the path. The perfume of the flowers clings to your clothes and starts the relaxation process.

I think that the thing that appeals to me most about the cottage is its simplicty. There is no television and the radio is only a new addition since our last visit - no carpets, basic kitchen, no Internet or telephone and no piles of books and papers to be dealt with.

The first place that I always head for is the back garden, to sit and watch the sun setting behind the trees in the orchard. The post and rail fence that seperates it from the main body of the garden must have been there for a hundred years or more.
