Had a fantastic time at Whistle Stopover Cottage. Fantastic surroundings, great location - easy to just admire the view of outside or jump in the car to see the many great things within a short drive. Biscuits on arrival were delicious :-) Thanks Leslie!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We booked for an overnight stay to attend a wedding in Cockatoo and were super impressed with Whistle Stopover Cottage. Warm & cosy, comfortable and lovely little exta touches as well like a cheese platter, port & chocolates and nestled in such a scenic spot. Our only regret is that we only had the one night booked....we'll be back for an extended stay again soon.
