“Perfect Farmstay - We hope to return every year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

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.

We took our 6 year old to Wattle Tree to feed animals and experience a slice of farm life. We stayed in the cute 1 room( bathroom separate) Rosegum Cabin. It was perfect for the 3 of us, toasty warm for our Winter getaway. The bush walk was spectacular and hosts were very helpful. They also organised a Dairy farm tour and horse riding for us. Nice little break!

The best thing about Wattle Gully are the hosts. Rita and John are very friendly and welcoming hosts, making sure our stay was comfortable. They provided many great recommendations regarding activities and food, and helped search for a lost item after our departure (that we eventually later discovered we had with us). The Rosegum cottage is a quaint and secluded cabin on the giant property with fantastic views in every direction. The cottage is well kept and clean, and has everything guests need to enjoy their stay (kitchen facilities, filtered drinking water, etc.).

We stayed in RoseGum Cottage for a long weekend about 4 yrs ago.
The log/timber cottage is gorgeous, perfect for a romantic relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The cottage is like very cute cubby house with a log fire, beautiful for winter weekends and is very private at the top of a hill in the sourrounding bushland.
We even made bookings for a lady to come for Swedish massages.

Room Tip: For romantic weekend, choose Rosegum Cottage.

We stayed in the Beechtree cabin for 2 nights in June 2012 and we liked everything about our stay! Our kids had a great time with the animals feeding, pick fresh chicken eggs in the barn, horse riding, waterfall walk...
They loved their Aussie world & strawberry farm!
Our beds was big & comfy, a comfortable couch and DVD/TV in the living room, kitchen facilities were clean and functional.
A great farmstay that our family (2 adults, 3 young kids) absolutely loved.
See you soon, John & Rita! :)
