Lovely and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Found the house lovely and relaxing, garden off the deck great and the garden/grass area in front was huge.

Walked 15mins thru cemetery to a great food corner: Beechworth Bakery/giant steps/intrepid (?) and RSL.

Had a special night at Helen hills winery then came home and played cards with our friends. Sad to leave.

This is a neat clean well equipped cottage in a beautiful garden setting. Great heating system will soon warm it up for even the coldest night the Yarra Valley can produce. Lots of great wineries and restaurants nearby.
