|Located in the heart of the historic mining town of St. Bathans, the Police Camp was first established in the 1860s. The Constable’s Cottage and St. Bathans Jail were completed in 1884. Now restored with modern facilities, these offer separate, self-contained accommodation in a beautiful garden setting overlooking the Blue Lake.
Constables Cottage offers full kitchen; dining and two living areas; three bedrooms (two queen beds and 2 singles); Freeview TV; gas bbq; elegant, sunny verandah overlooking the Blue Lake.
Jail: queen bed and ensuite; kitchen with microwave, single hob; gas bbq; Freeview TV; located on a courtyard terrace above cottage; lake view.
St Bathans dates from the early 1860s when gold was discovered; evidence of this can be seen in the spectacular Blue Lake, formed by mining processes, and the town’s historic buildings and ruins. Visitors can explore the town’s heritage by walking the DoC track around the lake and visiting the town’s historic ruins, or use St. Bathans as a base to explore other parts of the region’s features.
The mud-brick Vulcan Hotel, built in the 1890s, is a two-minute walk up the street and offers excellent dining, cooked breakfasts and good coffees as well as interesting local company in its cozy bar.
