What a gorgeous cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Partner and I stayed here for 1 night over the long weekend and loved every second of it, the photos do not do this place justice, so quaint and peaceful, we had the open fire place roaring all night and was amazing to sleep next to.

Great retreat, but low on creature comforts

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful little hut. We enjoyed it's period charm, and romantic setting. The open fire is fantastic but actually doesn't heat the place up much. It would be nice if there were a few breakfast provisions like butter, jam and bread, but you do have to bring your own. It's also quite close to the main road, so there is a little traffic noise, but the sound of birds and cows pretty much drowns it out.

Owner's Response: thanks for your feed back Once you have the fire cranking its gets quite comfortable and warm open fires are quite tricky if you are not used to them, we prefer to have it like a hotel just tea and coffee and if guest request breakfast lunch or dinner we are happy to organize it. cheers patrick and leilani

Very cosy

  • 3 of 5

A bit tight with 2 kids and 2 adults. Loved the clean and crisp air, animals across the road and the cows. Needs a thorough insulation makeover though

What a lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a really lovely weekend here in January. The cottage is very sweet, and we loved being able to sleep beside the fireplace. The bath was delightful, and the property is very beautiful. There were lots of roos and cockatoos to watch as we ate our breakfast on the little table and chair in the yard, as well as the neighbours' alpacas and emu. We also swam at the local swimming hole - a gorgeous spot. Would definitely come to this cottage again.
