Excellent Stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful clean accommodation. The hosts Jonathan and Sue couldn't do enough to make sure you had everything you needed. The best hosts! Very private and peaceful place to stay, so very tranquil. Love the sheep and pony. We will be back! This sure is a five star property. Everything was perfect!

Should have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a night as a launching pad for the ferry to Bruny Island but wished we stayed an extra night to further explore Kettering and surrounds, as there was plenty of things to do and see and some good eating options as well. The cottage was lovely, well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The hosts were friendly and helpful and the outlook very pleasant. Really enjoyed our brief stay here.

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

Beautifully clean and tidy. Very comfortable, but not recommended for those with any mobility issues. The two bedrooms are up some rather steep and narrow stairs, and only one has an ensuite toilet, and it is not the master bedroom, so if you are sharing, or have children, you would have to go into their bedroom at night to get to the loo, or wobble down steep stairs to the two (!) extra toilets and bathrooms downstairs. Good location, very peaceful. Cottage is very well kitted out.
