Beautiful Cottage

We had a very comfortable stay at Dunalan. The heater was on in preparation for our arrival, the bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. We will definitely stay again!

Great place to stay ...

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Dunalan Cottage. It was so peaceful and a great spot to stop on the way to Melbourne. Our dogs loved the space and smells! It was great that they are allowed inside the cottage. The hosts are lovely and welcoming. We were able to freely use the grounds and we were provided with delicious home made goods and fresh breakfast items. Our son enjoyed feeding the chickens and meeting the friendly farm dogs and cat. The surrounding area provided lots of space for walking and great photo opportunities. We would have loved to have stayed longer and will do next time. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Anna what a lovely review, thank you! We enjoyed your stay and love it when guests make the most of our property. Would love to see you photos, feel free to upload them on our Facebook page. Future guests will enjoy your Mexican hats, which I have left in the dining room for some dress ups at dinner time. Otherwise, they are there if you return.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely overnight stay at Dunalan, everything was presented beautifully. The kitchen especially is great, and the afternoon tea on arrival was a nice touch. It's a real working farm, with farm dogs to play with (tied up, don't worry!), chickens, sheep, and huge fields to wander. A very memorable stopover!
