The minute I arrived, I was reminded of previous holidays in England, and of charming, English cottages that I've been to. Pretty as a picture..
From there, one could drive easily to Mt. Field National Park, which is not to be missed - great hikes with wonderful views of the lakes.
If you are looking for a nice B&B, then this is the place for you. The place was quiet when we were there, and we had the refreshing pool in the garden to ourselves at the end of the day when we came back hot and tired from the hike, surrounded by a pretty garden.
Breakfast, although simple, was nicely laid out, with a view looking out from the bay window. The lovely hosts can make it a point to schedule the timings of the guests breakfasts so that there would not be a clash with others if one prefers it that way.
At nights,one can take a walk or drive to the local pub and have fish and chips, over looking the river.
Would love to go back again!
