From the initial booking Rita could not have been more helpful. We arrived earlier than our book in time and this was not an issue and we were immediately made to feel at home. The cottage itself had everything we required and more, everything was so quaint and personal and it really felt like you were miles from everything, yet there was so much so close. Each morning John would collect us in his ute and take us to feed all the animals (horses, alpacas, goats, chickens and ducks) and the children especially were always more than involved and John really was a wonderful host and went more than out of his way to provide information on the animals. The horses were really well looked after and Ross who looked after the horses was such a lovely man and went above and beyond his call of duty and letting our little girls take ride after ride on the ponies. Rita provided wonderful recommendations on restaurants and also what to do with our children in the area, we were genuinely sad to leave Wattle Gully and are already discussing a return next year.
