This is a small and very comfy house. Well fitted out and perfect for a couple. The owners have thought of everything you'd need and it's all there. The garden around the house is perfect and the view is amazing!

Amazing country house

  • 5 of 5

We did expect a quiet stay in a nice country house, but the place completely exceeded our expectations! We enjoyed every minute we spent indoors and outdoors. Rustic details and decorations made it feel like it was sweet home, while cosy fireplace helped to survive the night frost. Saw wombats and kangaroos in the snow, and farm animals were super friendly as well.

Beautiful, peaceful location, fun outdoor trips

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is well equipped and wonderfully cosy. Easy to cook for yourself in the kitchen or on the BBQ. Owner kindly had left free range eggs / bread / lots of food basics there to help for home cooks - as well as home made biscuits/fruit. Aircon cool/heat and a lovely wood stove. Large enclosed garden with wonderful district views. We had our cavalier spaniel with us who loved the walks around the property and running about the yard and was safe there when we did National Parks walks. Highly recc for couples with dog who want to time out or see Jenolan Caves ( allow 1 hr drive time if you have booked a specific tour) or do some bushwalks in the area - highly recc the Gloworm tunnel walk (National Park) from Wolgan Valley Road side ( 3.5hr walk , take a torch). A comfortable and peaceful rural retreat close to country activities

Owner's Response: thankyou very much for your lovely review. So glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. Yes it does take around 35 - 40 minutes to drive to caves but you do need the extra time to park and pick up the tickets as it is a bit of a walk from the parking area to office and it can take a bit longer if you are not sure of the road which is narrow has lots of bends. We dont normally provide eggs but the previous guest had left them in the fridge - just so others who book don't get upset if they don't get any but we do have all the basics as you mentioned. thanks again you were great guests too!
