A fantastic weekend retreat away from the rat race. Everything was supplied to make sure we had a pleasant stay. Would recommend this cottage to anyone. Breakfast was supplied with lovely fresh produce. Such a warm and cosy cottage in a beautiful garden.

“Wake up with the sound of the birds chirping! ”
Reviewed 3 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A lovely cosy little cottage just outside of Daylesford. My husband and I visited recently and enjoyed the peace and serenity came with staying at the cottage. Cosy log fire and split system for the cold nights as well as a king size bed. Wake up with the sounds of the birds chirping and the kangaroos not far. Very relaxing!

“Romantic, secluded and high standard”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This lovely cottage is in a very quiet corner of the garden, on a private path away from the main house.
The cottage is well appointed , spa bath, great big bed, excellent breakfast basket and toiletries with high quality provisions. It is also very clean and has good sound and vision equipment.

We loved Daylesford, but found ourselves only really wanting the relax at the cottage as it was so perfect.
Also perfect is that there is no WIFI or internet, which was wonderful as lack of it made us relax and forget the world outside!

I will certainly be returning when I have an excuse!
Thanks Ellie

We spent 2 nights in this gorgeous little cottage which had some nice little touches. Loved the Nespresso and the spa bath was great. Soaps and bubble bath supplied were just beautiful and it was great to have bath robes too. Knowing that this cottage is pet friendly, we will definitely bring our furbaby Oscar next time. We were expecting a bottle of local wine and choccies for our 2 night stay which were not supplied but maybe that is for Saturday and Sunday night stays only? All in all, a quaint romantic cottage getaway.
