About the neighbourhood
Walnut Tree Cottage is located in the quiet tranquility of one of the first farming settlements of Canterbury, Greendale. While traffic noise is usually limited to harvesting times there are roosters, laying chooks, demanding pet sheep, possums stealing walnuts and the dawn chorus; however on a clear night the view of the milky way is second to none!
