The Mot House is a charming, light and airy 3 bedroom 1940s bungalow.  Suitable for couples, friends, families and  groups.
Accommodates up to 7 people
.   Linen and towels provided.

The house is pitched at a mid-price range to fit between lower priced backpacker accommodation and other options such as motels.

You get a comfortable low-key home away from home - your own Mot-based "bach"  - with all bedding, towels, fresh herbs from the garden, a fully fenced private garden, a deck with views - and  just a leisurely stroll away from the attractions of main street in Mot, and a short bike ride or drive to all the other offerings of our region.

Special thank you to our visitors
It was lovely to meet you, and we hope you enjoyed yourSeafood and Wine time in the area and The Mot House as a relaxed and comfortable base in a lovely part of town - your local "bach" in Mot

Congratulations to Matthias and Yvonne on your marriage
Special Thanx to the young artists who were here for the final booking at the end of January.

We loved your chalk drawings all over the footpaths and warnings to "keep out" of the secret hideaway down the side of the house writtten in big chalk letters on the fence.
They have only just been washed away (10 Feb) with our first rains in a few weeks.
Life moves on!
But we'll remember!
We're definitely "keeping out".

Hope to see you again next time you are in town!
