Serene country retreat

  • 5 of 5

This eco-lodge is situated in a beautiful location. It is secluded and picturesque. The cottage is well presented with all you need - a generous pantry makes sure that if you’ve forgotten anything you will not have to drive to get the necessary supplies. The wood heating through the stove and fire make for a very cosy space. Be sure to explore the property on foot and head towards the Mt William direction to find a running creek. The kitchen garden is delightful and a great source for fresh herbs for dinner. Thanks Janet for being so thoughtful and checking to make sure we stayed warm on a wild weather weekend. Terrific value for money.

Space and serenity

  • 5 of 5

We had a magical stay at this eco cottage. The views out each window are stunning and the house itself is lovely - sustainable and simple. We woke up on our first morning seeing emus and kangaroos!. The weather on the first few days was wild - galeforce winds and sheets of rain - however the cottage was easy to keep warm with a woodstove and open fire. We loved using the woodstove for cooking - our first time! There is also a fantastic orchard full of fruit trees and vegies which we were welcome to help ourselves to. There wasn't a lot in April but we did enjoy some very late basil. The sense of space and serenity is very special.
