A peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Stoneycroft Cottage - very peaceful and surrounded wonderful natural beauty. The cottage was cosy and very well appointed with a great kitchen. It was very wintery and cold during our stay but the abundance of heaters, an open fire place and electric blankets on all the beds kept us toasty!

We look forward to another family holiday at Stoneycroft.

Interesting property with great hosts

  • 5 of 5

A quaint, clean cottage on a working farm. Our hosts were very welcoming and extremely responsive to requests. Our dog had an amazing time with walks and sheep viewing. Great central, yet quiet, base of operations when visiting the Grampians, Dunkeld, Great Ocean Rd.

Lovely cottage and property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights with our small dog. The cottage was lovely and cosy (great fire!), and had everything you could possibly want. It was also great to have the fenced area so we could sit outside and let our dog run around the yard. A lovely, cosy property!

Perfect oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous base for a quick get away. The only sounds were distant sheep and the wind through the gums.

The cottage was so interesting, understated and simple, which made for a very relaxing uncluttered stay. Spotlessly clean, well appointed and the cosiest living room. The open fire was great on the cold nights and the fact that we could take our energetic dogs with us to sniff out the great smells only a farm can offer was a perfect bonus.

The hosts were really helpful and friendly and it was really set up for bringing along our pet dog. There was a secure area where we left our puppy while we went hiking.
