if you want to try farm experience or away from city life, definately the place it is. the view from inside the room is beautiful when there is sunshine. it is a place full of history, and the farm is good, you can feed the animals together with host. kitchen is good too, with oven. just 10 mins drive, can go to IGA in longford, a big one, convenience.

We recently stayed for 2 nights in Pumpkin Cottage on the World Heritage Listed Brickendon Estate. The three farm cottages are within a short stroll from the heritage Brickendon farm and entry to the farm is included in the price of the accommodation. At $175.00 per night I thought it a bit expensive, but we loved our little cottage despite the gloomy and wet weather.
With a slow combustion fire place and plenty of other heaters (if required) we were warm and snug. Our cottage included all of the usual cooking facilities, including a full size stove and there is a laundry between the three cottages.
Staying here during fine weather would be lovely as the views across the fields from the front verandah were superb.
This accommodation may not suit those looking for 5 star luxury, but it was perfect for us and dog friendly as a bonus.

We stayed in the Sweet Corn cottage and the fire had been prepared for us and lit so it was very cosy when we arrived. Louise was so friendly and helpful and showed my city children all the farm animals and the sheep being shorn. Definitely bring your own food and cook it there- the kitchen is easy to use and has all necessary items. It was lovely to have homemade biscuits in the kitchen to eat with a cuppa in front of the fire. A very pleasant evening!

We went back to Brickendon and stayed in Gardener's Cottage , the place where my wife and i got engaged some 14 year ago.

Both love the charm and history and want to come back with the kids.

Such a romantic location. Everything you need is supplied from breakfast provisions to laundry and fire place.

We chose here to for our night as we thought it would be interesting. It was indeed, for us city folks. Lovely animals where we had the chance to participate in their feeding session in the morning. The sheep and the horses along the main path in the farm were especially friendly! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves playing with animals and taking pictures of them.

We stayed in Pea in a Pod. It was very the smallest of the 3 in a row but it was cute, had a warm feeling to it and still felt spacious. Provided in the cupboard was breakfast provisions. We got fresh juice as well in the fridge. Overall the room was clean except the window frames were layered with dust and some spiderwebs seen at wall corners.

The people were largely friendly at the farm but they wouldn't take guests for a walk around the grounds or tell you something about its history. We were to walk around the grounds on our own with the brief description on their pamphlet. It was not too bad, though.

During our stay the farm was holding a wedding party. It was kind of noisy and certainly disturbed the tranquility of the place, but luckily ended around midnight and we were able to get a good sleep.

Dinner and drinks were available only at Longford, something like a 10-15 minute drive away.

This accommodation was certainly different and gave a perspective of life in the "olden days" for farm employees. The estate is certainly historic and very interesting with lovely peaceful countryside views. If you prefer 5 star accommodation this is not for you, but I couldn't fault the continental breakfast provisions and the comfy bed. Chickens poking around below the verandah and birds diving in and out of the vine intertwining the verandah post provided an amusing backdrop with breakfast. The estate is interesting in its architecture, historic presentations and has lovely rural views, yet is close to Longford restaurants and shops.

We stayed in the Gardener's Cottage and just loved it. The restoration is excellent, keeping the colonial feel and providing modern conveniences. Our hosts and staff could not have been more helpful. this was a perfect escape from city life - so peaceful and scenic.

Room Tip: There a number of choices of convict or farm cottages. I can only comment on the Gardeners Cottage...
