Country H(e)aven!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks SO much to our charming host for our idyllic (but all-too-brief) stint at Walker's Cottage recently.

It was so lovely to meet and chat with you on arrival, Annette, and we had the best stay.

The cottage (now THERE'S an understatement for a start! heh heh) was cool, ultra-clean, spacious and comfortable in every way. We got to know many of the sheep by name while there ;-), and our old Labradoodle Lady, Smudge - like us - adored the open spaces, both in- and out-doors.

The location was a perfect spot from which to explore the local region, and we are determined to come back again, next time allowing more days so that we can delve a little more deeply into the historic and scenic delights.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fabulous time at Colenso Country Retreat. Annette is a wonderful hostess. We enjoyed being part of a large farm with all the wildlife and the most comfortable home. It was very dog friendly and our little girl just loved exploring the grounds of The Retreat. Thank you again Annette for making our stay just such a wonderful experience. PS if you love photography...the sunrises and sunsets are sublime.

Incredibly Relaxing

We had a very quiet, relaxing stay at Colenso Walker's Cottage. The Cottage is a great size and has everything you need, with a gorgeous view from the balcony. Perfect for a lazy weekend away of reading and watching sunsets!

EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at the property. Both visits have been very peaceful amongst the Canola and Wheat fields. The house is always clean when we arrive and the owners are always abliging and friendly as they pass on the roadway. Just love it!
