Cosy Winter Cottage
Well we had a fantastic time here, I think I may be a convert to winter holidays!! There was plenty of snow and cold weather during our stay but the roads are always cleared and the cottage is lovely and warm. It's quiet too which is how we like it. It would be nice to see the same place in the summer and we certainly do plan to return to Slovenia, what a lovely country.
The cottage was wonderful - it had everything you could need for a great stay. The kids loved sleeping in the alcove, the log burner kept us warm in the evening and it was a great adventure staying in the woods.
I am so pleased you and your family had a great stay...it is a great place for children to have adventures safely in the woods!
So pleased you enjoyed the cottage
Wonderful property in relaxing setting
We had a great time in the cottage. Jackie, the host, was really nice and helpful. She gave us great advice on where to go for food and all the places she recommended were great. The cottage itself is down a small trail with one other house nearby it. It is really quiet, has no wifi and mobile signal isn't very good which is exactly what we wanted as meant we could totally switch off from work. The cottage has everything you need; we particularly enjoyed the log burner in the evenings! Thank you!
Tranquil, cosy with stunning surroundings
The cottage is tucked up in the woods in the stunning peace and quiet of the Slovene countryside but only 45 min or so from the main airport. It has everything you could need from a rental property and was homely and inviting. The children ADORED sleeping in the nook and romping around in the garden and fields. It is just like living in The Sound of Music with the cowbells and fantastic scenery! There is tonnes to do in the vicinity and you are only a 10 minute drive to a great supermarket and lovely restaurants. We kayaked, rowed, swum, cycled, walked, went paragliding (well not all of us!) and most of all relaxed. We would highly recommend Woodland Cottage (and Villa Maria which we stayed in last year from the same website - in the same village but a bigger property). We can't wait to come back and try it for skiing!
(Thanks also to Jackie who manages the property for looking after us so well.)

Hi Clare and Keri
I am so pleased you had a wonderful holiday in Woodlands. I also love the sound of the cowbells. We look forward to welcoming you in the winter, when it is just as beautiful!
Small, cozy and well equiped house in remote location
As the title says the cottage is small, cozy and well equiped. It is good for two adults (+ children). The bedroom is spacious and has a large bed. The bathroom is rather small but clean and everything you need is there. There is another double bed in the hallway. Downstairs there is a decent kitchen and a living room with a cozy wood stove. The cottage is located in Gorjuše which is on top of the Pokljuka plateau. From Bohinjska Bistrica is about a half hour drive to the cottage. This road has quite a few hairpins an Bohinjska Bistrica is the closest location with shops. When we arrived in Gorjuše we couldn't find the cottage very easily. A map with the location could be useful. We had to cross a muddy road which was quite a challenge since it had been raining a lot, but we succeeded! If you are looking for a quiet location to relax, this is the perfect house. Especially when the sun is shining.
I am pleased you had a great holiday and enjoyed the cottage. I am sorry about the small section of muddy road..the tractors had been pulling wood out of the forest and with the rain it had got churned up a bit! They have now repaired it.
We are getting some wooden signs prepared to put up from the main road to direct you more clearly to the cottage
All the best
Luxe en rust in een zeer gastvrij land
Zeer compleet uitgerust vakantiehuis in de Sloveense Alpen. Prima geschikt voor ouders met kinderen die even weg willen uit de drukte van de grote toeristische trekpleisters. We voelden ons zeer welkom en de beheerster was uitermate behulpzaam. Het huisje ligt op 1.100 meter hoogte, de eerste buren bevinden zich 100 meter verderop en kinderen kunnen er heerlijk in het privé bos struinen, reeën kijken, vuurtje stoken en op "vossenjacht". Dat alles aan de rand van schitterende wandelgebieden en op 20 minuten rijden van Bled aan de oostkant en Bohinj aan de westkant. We hebben genoten.
Woodlands cottage is situated down a private lane within the The Bohinj / Triglav National Park area. It is surrounded with the beauty,nature and peace of the park! The Triglav National Park is the only national park in Slovenia. It is named after the highest mountain in Slovenia which is situated in the heart of the park (2864m). Within the park is various levels of hiking so something to suit everybody. Lake Bohinj is a truly beautiful lake, with crystal clear water, full of fish and lovely bays, surrounded by the Juian Alps which literally rise up out of the lake making a spectacular yet tranquil setting with lots to do including boating, fishing, bathing, climbing, hiking, biking or simply feeding the ducks! There are so many places to visit The Gorenjska region The Gorenjska region is one of the most popular tourist regions in Slovenia. It is an alpine region characterized by spectacular high peaks, sharp ridges, deep gorges, the gushing sound of waterfalls and lovely peaceful lakes making an ideal setting for sightseeing and outdoor pursuits. The weather is generally hot and sunny in summertime with plenty of snow in winter for winter sports. For day trips the beautiful capital of Ljubljana is just over an hour's drive with it's lovely old town and endless bistros. The Skocjan Caves (a UNESCO world heritage site) are under two hours drive. The breathtaking Soca Valley is also a very scenic two hour drive (or a 60 minute train ride through the mountain). Austria and Italy are within easy reach with day trips to Venice a possibility.
