The North Cottage is situated in a lovely country setting. Hosts David & Jackie are very welcoming, and helpful. The cottage retains it's rustic charm, but has a convenient kitchen, and spacious modern bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped, and when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to find the refrigerator stocked with basic grocery items, plus a good selection of extras. This is a very nice touch.
The Stone Edge is situated in a rural setting, but it's a pleasant, and relatively easy walk through the Botanic Gardens, to town. From our perspective, it was the best of "country and town", because town isn't far away. The rural property offered the chance to see bunnies, kangaroos, and even an occasional wallaby from the porch, or on the grounds.
It's obvious that hosts David and Jackie have a passion for hospitality.
Our stay at Campbell's Creek was exactly what we needed. We were after privacy, peace and quiet and this was all part of our stay! The gorgeous location just outside Castlemaine is perfect, with a very picturesque natural environment surrounding it. The house is open planned, so there is lots of space and high ceilings, and the amenities cater to all domestic needs. If wanting a break from cooking, the township is 5 minutes away, with lots of choice for meals. The property itself is clean, well maintained and very child friendly. The hotwater was excellent, and it was great to have a change table and highchair available to use. Our baby boy got lots of time to cruise around safely, no low sharp edges anywhere for a pre-walker to hit his head! The safety gate on the stairs and the toy box were God send. As was the awesome air-con during that hot weekend!
I received prompt, friendly customer service throughout the entire process - booking to checkout - as well as helpful follow up afterwards. Many thanks to you, Laura!
Such a delightful and enjoyable experience, I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends, children or couples, specially the time poor and those just needing to "get away from it all"! The property is a short drive from Melbourne and there's LOTS of space, peace and quiet! Castlemaine has some fantastic antique and brick a brac shops, as well as farmers and artist markets to while away your Sunday too.
