“You must stay here! Little piece of paradise just out of Melbourne!”
Reviewed 7 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We stayed over Easter and it was fantastic! Our two girls loved all the animal, feeding sheep, cows, goats, alpacas and guinea pigs. The house is perfectly appointed, you have everything you need including magical sunset views. The hosts were amazing, they invited us to feed the animals and showed us around the property, they were extremely accomodating. We would highly recommending staying here.

“Idyllic, blissful, cosy and peaceful cottage”
Reviewed 21 December 2017 for a stay in November 2017

I stayed with a female friend from England in the cottage for 5 days. We absolutely loved it, and would highly recommend a stay here. The cottage was very comfortable and beautifully decorated, and had good kitchen facilities. The 2 bathrooms were a bonus too. We spent our mornings and evenings on the lovely balcony out the front with table and chairs and gorgeous view. We had regular bird visitors (and regularly used the jar of bird seed on the balcony). The birds included a king parrot who would come down daily, honeyeaters, rosellas, and a lovely little blue wren who would tap on the bathroom window downstairs shortly after I got up each morning. You can't see any other houses from the cottage, so it feels very quiet and peaceful.
There are lovely walks down the road from the cottage, and this was a great way to start each morning.
Catherine was a lovely host - including being very understanding when we couldn't end up arriving till the next day after we had booked due to delays with my flight. She also adapted the breakfast basket to our particular requests, left a delicious bottle of pinot noir for us (I had told her we liked pinot), and very kindly gave us an unprompted refund of the cost of the first night of accommodation which we hadn't used.
I would suggest arriving during daylight hours if you can, as there are some small roads without street lighting as you get closer to the cottage.
The cottage was an excellent base to explore the Yarra Valley, which has a lot to offer in terms of wineries, great restaurants, markets, live music, walks and nature. We had 4 lovely lunches out at wineries, including some 'mid week specials' which a number of wineries seem to do for some or all weekdays and provided great food, value, views and service. These included Seville Hill winery and Tokar Estate. We also had a lovely Sunday afternoon at Yarrawood Winery listening to excellent live music with another wonderful view and great food.
There are various markets on every weekend in the Yarra (a rotating series depending on which weekend it is) - the one at Yering Station was a great place to pick up local food supplies for meals at the cottage.
Other activities we enjoyed were the Warratina Lavender Farm, Alowyn Gardens (gorgeous when in bloom), and Healesville Animal Sanctuary (lots of native Australian animals in a lovely natural setting). The O'Shannessy Aqueduct Trail had beautiful, very varied scenery, and you could walk for hours if you had the time.
