Amazing location

  • 4 of 5

Very cute little cottage, great location, awesome views. Had everything that we needed to relax. There a couple of little additions, which was a lovely touch. (eg. Christmas tree and decorations)

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

An excellent cottage that is beautifully presented and maintained by the owners. I've been travelling across Australia for quite a few months and this cottage rates among the highest I've stayed in. The extra light touches make this a very homely option for short stays to explore the Ballarat region.

Relaxing dog friendly getaway

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed my stay at Durham View Cottage! Beautiful relaxed setting and comfortable accommodation. Very dog-friendly with a fully fenced yard. Reading previous reviews about supplies at the house, I dropped the hosts an email to advise not to leave anything for me due to my dietary restrictions. Upon arrival I met Ian as he was leaving the cottage - he had arranged hot cross buns and soy milk for me, which was completely unexpected and so thoughtful! Buninyong is a beautiful little town with the closest Coles only 10 minutes away, or 15 minutes to Ballarat. Unfortunately my stay was cut short, so I left the evening prior, and to my horror when I arrived home I noticed the cottage keys on my car keys! Ian was so understanding and was happy for me to post them back as opposed to driving 2 hours back to drop them off. All in all a wonderful experience and will definitely be back soon! Thanks!

Clean place, thoughtful owners

  • 4 of 5

We reached on Boxing Day and no shops was open. Very glad that the kitchen is fully equipped and basic food was provided such as bread, eggs, biscuits, cereals etc. Got a surprise Christmas gift as well. Very clean and cosy place to stay with Christmas decorations. Love it!

About Joanne and Ian Crosbie

We are a family of five, Ian and myself have 3 kids, and have all our married life lived in Buninyong, we love the town and would not want to move any where else

We hope you enjoy our town

Joanne and Ian Crosbie purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Joanne and Ian Crosbie chose Buninyong

Durham view cottage is in a quiet street, over looking the Durham. The cottage was transported to our block of which is family land, Ian's family have owned the land for approx. 100 years and more, and from the outlook of the cottage you can see where Ians grandfather and grandmother brought his mum up. The house is still standing and has artists come and draw and take pictures of this house

We hope you enjoy the serenity of the cottage and enjoy the view
