Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have never claimed to be a 4.5 star property. We do have 7 different types of accommodation on the property, perhaps you would have enjoyed the Lavender cottage which is designed specifically for adults only.

A real gem! Close enough to Bridport to enjoy the coastal attractions but out of town enough to enjoy the delightful rural/bush setting. A quality, well run establishment AND pet friendly!PLUS, the opportunity to spend the twilight hours observing a platypus in the wild; just a short walk from our cottage.Just great, highly recommended!
