"This is such a sweet little cottage - the perfect place to relax. A home away from home. We had a lovely weekend away."

"Absolutely charming and so very comfortable. Divine garden. Spotless and welcoming. After a number of stays at surrounding cottages we have been captivated by The Nook. Thank you."

"The Nook became an instant memory. Both of us knew that the comforting smell of timber, the rich healthy garden, friendly and curious chooks and warm atmosphere that had planted unique seeds of nostalgia in us. We will no doubt relish every reflection we have of The Nook."

"What a divine little 'Nook'. The perfect place for getting away from it all to relax. Particularly loved the fire to curl up with a magazine. Amazing birdlife. The billiard table was fab fun and the chooks were so welcoming! We look forward to returning soon"

Very cosy stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay - we got the fire going straight away and i was impressed with the oven - cooked a great roast! The bedroom was lovely and big with a comfy bed - slept well! Linda was very helpful with providing a couple of kitchen items! Thanks for a great stay! We also thought the Deans Marsh local store nearby was tops - best steak sambo for breakfast there in a very long time!

Great property!

  • 4 of 5

Many thanks to Linda and Greg. We had a lovely weekend at the nook. It was just so relaxing and peaceful. The only thing that would have improved our stay would have been a breakfast basket which would have allowed us to stay a little bit longer. I will definitely recommend this property to friends.
