A fabulous relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved it so much we wanted to move in!! Les, Chris and Peter could not have been nicer. Such a cosy house and gorgeous property. Our kids were mesmerised by the cows, the bushwalks, the fires and the boat on the pond. We didn't want to leave.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Accommodated a family of 5 and an adult friend very comfortably.

Chris and Les were the most gracious host and hostess ever, felt more like family friends then paying guests. The house is so charming and lovingly decorated and spotlessly clean. we will be back.

The kids loved the boat on the little pond, the cows, horses and big chess. Our dog Marley was in heaven!

A fantastic place to stay. Comfortably fit 6 adults (and the dog) for a weekend. The house had everything you could need in the way of kitchen utensils. Very relaxing and picturesque place to stay. Would recommend to others.

Beautiful spot for a couple of nights.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Dilly Dally for a couple of nights midweek and had a wonderful time. Very well equipped home with all mod cons while still keeping a quirky country feel. It was very chilly overnight but we were toasty warm with the log fire and super big spa bath. Kids kept amused by day with lots of space to run around, dart board and an outdoor chess set and by night with Foxtel and a very well stocked movie shelf. Quite close to owners house which did not bother us as empty at the time and cottage privacy maintained due to private outlook over valley, however if you are wanting seclusion you may want to check first. Manager very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with. Can highly recommend property for a relaxing break so close to Sydney.
