Wonderful breakfasts include a large selection of fresh and poached fruits, yoghurt, freshly squeezed orange juice as well as a full cooked breakfast. The bread is home baked and the jams are made from the fruit trees in the garden. Breakfast may be served during the warmer weather in the garden under the canopy of the fruit trees, and to the music of birdcall. Children may enjoy feeding the pet animals and collecting eggs from the hens. All the farm animals are very friendly. Coki, the cheeky miniature is loved by all.

Happy New year to you and Maureen!
Poppy and Jake are very kind, and they make a wonderful breakfast.
The sky was littered with stars, the garden filled with flowers...and roses with such intense fragrance! What a treat to have Poppy’s Cottage available to us...a better way to stay and a very comfortable, memorable experience. Ooooh....and the breakfast made by Poppy and Jake was absolutely delicious- we felt very welcome and nurtured. What a treat. Thank you.
Thank you Brigitte for your very kind review. It was so enjoyable having you and Cath here for your reunion and fun to share the joy with you both. I am so pleased that Poppy's Cottage was all that you had hoped for, and perhaps we may have the opportunity to offer this experience again for you one day. All the best to you both now that you have each returned to your families. I hope you were able to arrive home relaxed and refreshed after enjoying the peace in our blossoming garden.
A relaxing experience with delightful people in unique surroundings!
This is my second stay with Poppy and Jake. I can’t endorse it enough. This is a truely relaxing experience with some delightful people in unique surroundings. Breakfast is scrumdiddlyumptious! Served in uniquely Australian surroundings. The cottage is well stocked with tea, coffee and treats. There were plenty of books for reading and relaxing. We stayed for three nights on this occassion and left feeling completely relaxed and grounded. Thanks for a marvellous stay. We will be back again!
