My 3-year-old and I enjoyed 3 nights at Candlelight Cottage around Anzac Day. The cottage is historic, beautifully lit and decorated, warm and private. The surrounding gardens are spectacular. Rosellas bathed in the pond in the backyard. The open fire and ducted heating kept the house warm, breakfast provisions were generous, and the bathroom/spa has a particularly lovely outlook. Dappled sunlight streams through the enormous trees into the kitchen and dining area for part of the day, but the various lamps and dimmer lights create relaxing cosiness at other times. The cottage is walking distance to a great fruit, vegetable and food store, Pellegrinis, which also stocks delicious local free-range bacon and ham. Peta was an excellent, welcoming hostess and a real pleasure to deal with. I recommend Candlelight Cottage for both romantic and family trips. It's a very special place, a real mountain hideaway.
