Clarendon Cottages - A Quiet Garden Retreat

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage


About the property

The enchanted grounds of Clarendon are just outside Sassafras Village - a truly delightful setting, tucked quietly away off the main Mount Dandenong Tourist Road.

Clarendon's luxury guest accommodation consists of two charming one bedroom cottages and a two bedroom cottage in a secluded, peaceful and romantic setting.

Two acres of English country gardens and meadow nestle amongst a huge variety of beautiful century old trees. The Cottages are within easy walking distance of Sassafras Village and Sherbrooke Forest where you can see the lyrebirds foraging happily.

Gas log fires, spas, fully equipped kitchens and private decks are just some of the many features of our Stables and Camellia Cottages. Our 'petite suite' Dovecote Cottage doesn't have a spa, kitchen or fireplace but just oozes cosiness and is perfect for a single traveller or budget conscious couple looking for a short stay.

Generous breakfast provisions such as cereals, milk, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, juices, fresh country bread, jams and butters are provided for the first 2 mornings of your stay as well as complimentary fruit, biscuits and port and chocolates.

THE STABLES COTTAGE - The Quiet Garden Retreat!

Featured here is our two bedroom Stables Cottage. It is ideal for one or two couples or a family of four and is available exclusively for your use.

Each of the bedrooms have luxurious queen size iron beds with electric blankets. The main bedroom has double French doors opening onto your own private deck.

This luxury self contained cottage has reverse cycle air conditioning, a gas log fire, fully equipped kitchen, cosy lounge/dining area and beautifully appointed bathroom with double corner spa, separate shower and vanity.

The lounge area has twin 2-seater couches, a gas log fire and a beautiful picture window overlooking the garden down to a huge golden elm tree. A large LCD TV, DVD, CD/Radio and iPod/iPhone/iPad docking station provides for your entertainment. There is free WiFi also.

The main deck with outdoor furniture and BBQ allows you to wind down while overlooking the gorgeous garden, listening to the rosellas and kookaburras.


11 Clarkmont Road, Sassafras is located just off the Mount Dandenong Tourist Road within easy walking distance of the popular Sassafras Village, the home of Miss Marples Teahouse & Sherbrooke Forest, the home of the Lyrebirds and close to the excellent shopping, cafes and restaurants of Olinda & Mt Dandenong Villages.

The Dandenong Ranges are centrally located to the Yarra Valley Wineries, Phillip Island and the Melbourne CBD and just 60 minutes drive from the Melbourne International Airport or 45 minutes from Melbourne CBD.
