The Redbrick cottage was perfect for us (2 adults and 2 children), and could actually sleep another family of 4 comfortably (the queen beds were very comfy); unfortunately our friends could not make it (but a...

Thank you so much for your lovely review, so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The chickens have really won some fans in their time, I think they may even trump the kangaroos as the most popular animals on the property! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels and that we will see you again soon. Kind...

We enjoyed a wonderful short break at Grampians Pioneer Cottages. The unique lodges are comfortable with fabulous views. Wildlife abounds, kangaroos, emus and the friendly resident hens. Barbecue facilities were great and the log fire splendid :) Located just outside Halls Gap with hill walks just a short drive away. Would highly recommend.

We would never stay anywhere else in The Grampians. Great location and complete privacy. The owners Corinne & Aidan are very welcoming and ensure our needs are met. The open fire was a wonderful bonus.

Most relaxing weekend we've had in years. Most beautiful cottages full of character and history, picturesque views that are postcard perfect, the native wildlife and friendly locals make for an unforgettable experience.

Originally we booked for 2 nights and had to extend for an extra night as it was difficult to leave. The hosts were amazing even offering free range eegs. Very friendly staff and very clean amenities. The house had everything needed to make you feel at home😊 definitely we will be back again!

Thank you for your lovely review, I'm really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are certainly very privileged to play host to such an array of bird life, the Simpson and Day field guide is never far from the back door to help with identification! Thanks again, we hope to see you again soon.

Firstly, the setting is spectacular, with sunsets on the range giving you that "ahhh glad im here" feeling. Then the sun goes down, the kangaroos hop off to wherever it is they hop off to, the billions of stars come out and you go inside to get the fire roaring. The Stone cottage was toasty warm on arrival, but you...
