A warm and comfortable stay
We stayed overnight while on a road trip from the Sunshine Coast, Qld to Canberra. The cottage was very comfortable and warm plus the electric blankets on the beds were really appreciated as the night was cold.
Thank you for a great stay and for providing accommodation for people travelling with pets.
Perrott St Cottage is set on a huge block, so despite being in what seems like normal suburban Armidale, it feels like you're out in the country! The baby alpacas in the front paddock increased the farm-like feel. My dog loves it because she can run around freely in a nice big and safe yard! The cottage is quirky and homely; in Armidale's mid winter nights you need to snuggle up tight in the comfy bed. And in the morning the glass patio doors let the glorious winter sunshine stream in and it's very hard to pack up and leave!
The cottage was neat and had all the facilities we needed.
Cute, cosy and comfortable
This was an excellent pet-friendly place to stay. The cottage is small but perfectly equipped with all you need to be self contained. It provided a warm and cosy haven from the Armidale winter. Good location for getting to the university - was there for intensive school - and had a well-fenced yard which kept the puppies safe and happy. I appreciated the lovely decorating details with reference to a 60's aesthetic and country comfort. Really charming. The vase of fresh daisies and lavender on the bathroom sill was lovely. Would definitely recommend and will hope to stay again for the next intensive school trip to Armidale.
Staying at Perrott St Cottage feels like being on a farm, but it's only a few minutes from the centre of town. It's quirky and homely. On a frosty and sunny winter's morning it's an absolute delight.
So happy to hear you appreciated our winter mornings. They are certainly unique. We are lucky to have the space around us and love sharing it with others. Thanks.
Great dog friendly place
Thank you for having me and my two dogs a couple of weeks ago. the property was so cosy and relaxing that I wished I could stay for longer. My dogs had ample space in the lounge room to set up their crates and I appreciated the small fenced area out the back. Will recommend to others travelling with dogs.
We love providing a relaxing environment for pooches and their owners. So glad you enjoyed it. Thanks in advance for the future recommendations to pet owners.
