Contemplated sleeping in the car.
Prior to arriving at the property we had called and emailed. We had not heard from the owners upon our arrival. Once there, we were unsure how to access the cottage and there was no one around to ask. After wandering arould the farm we found the cottage was left open. The first night wasn't too bad, the cottage was cosy and we enjoyed the peace and quiet, there were a few bugs here and there but we just thought ownerd may not had time to vaccum. The next day we set out on a couple of hike on the property. The land is beautiful. The tracks are conveniently labelled and there is plenty to see. We got to see all the animals & smell the fresh air. The second night of our stay we were terrorised by bugs. Our room was filled with bugs & i wish i was exaggerating when i say the ceilings were completely black with bugs (there is photographic & video evidence). Our bed was spotted with tiny fruit flies & we had to deal with 4 huntsmans. It got so bad that we contemplated sleeping in the car. We were hesitant to douse the cottage with bug spray since the cottage is small and the kitchen is connected to the lounge and we were cooking dinner and we couldn't open the windows for fresh air in fear of more bugs getting in. After dinner, we spray the bugs and a lot of them had died, such a shame since they pride themselves on their fresh air, we were left smelling bug spray. We ripped the blankets off the bed and slept under sheets, and woke up to yet another huntsman crawling around above us.There was a thick pile of black bugs on the floor that we had swept up. In the morning we couldn't believe the experience we had. We would have spoken to someone if there was someone there to speak to! Iwas such a shame because the property is so beautiful and the cottage appeared cosy. I would have recommended this place but the amount of bugs were surrounded by, i wouldnt recommend that to anyone. Also, the lack of communication from property owners on instructions of how to access the property was lacking.
We enjoyed our stay at the Shearers cottage very much. It was warm, cozy and peaceful and relaxing. The decor is beautiful. Open fires and views of the countryside and animals. Feeding the donkeys was fun !!! loved staying here so much . Wonderful hosts.
A beautiful, rustic little cottage. A perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Such a great place to relax and unwind. Cosy fire, comfy bed, amazing little stove, a home away from home. Will definitely return in the future.
A fabulous little spell in the country under clear skies
Really lovely spot. Deb and Rob are very welcoming hosts. It's good to just switch off and you can do that here. The walks on the property are nice bring your fishing rods. No phone reception so you have to pre book activities or restaurants.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the farm and in the cottage.
The open fire kept us warm and cosy. We woke up in the morning surrounded by fog and a flock of sheep out side the window. Just magical. We enjoyed the bush walks on the property and saw a wombat and en echidna. No mobile phone service meant we were really able to relax. We would return to the farm again and would recommend it for a weekend away
