2018 was a year of growth and great things here at the Old Schoolhouse Milton. A year of surprises and discoveries and connections with the wonderful South Coast community.
A huge amount of love has been lavished on the property in the last year. The homestead was modernised and renovated with special care taken to retain its authentic charms and some added new ones!
We have uncovered forgotten history of the property including buried pottery shards and beautiful brickwork underneath the old kitchen fireplace which is now lovingly restored and leads you into the original front sitting room and bedroom.
We have connected with members of the local community in Milton who have carefully preserved moments in time and that has been an absolute highlight. Our team are looking forward to discovering more of the Old School House history. Sharing the stories of the people who lived and learned here in years gone by and images of the Little Croobyar School.
A major highlight for 2018 was winning the Milton Ulladulla Shire Business of the Year award! We are still so proud and a little shocked to have won not only the Best Tourism and Hospitality business but also Business of Year.
Community is at the core of what makes Old Schoolhouse Milton a real home away from home for our guests. Being an active part of a community like Milton and the South Coast at large, supporting other local businesses is such a privilege and joy.
2019 at Old Schoolhouse Milton is shaping up to be even better than 2018! It started with the summer rituals of long salty swims, happy wet dogs, mugs of hot tea and coffee. We will continue with the rituals of salt and tea, reflections and renewal well into the year………cant wait to share the journey with you all!
