Cottage in distress

  • 3 of 5

We stayed 2 nights recently and we found Perrott St cottage to be adequate for our visit, we were glad that it is pet friendly, though we were a bit surprised we weren't asked to provide evidence of a current flea regime. I doubt we would stay a 2nd time, Caroline was most helpful and if you are visiting Armidale with your hound the secure yard makes the cottage a sound option. The whole place could do with a good spring clean!

A warm and comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed overnight while on a road trip from the Sunshine Coast, Qld to Canberra. The cottage was very comfortable and warm plus the electric blankets on the beds were really appreciated as the night was cold.

Thank you for a great stay and for providing accommodation for people travelling with pets.

Lovely setting

  • 3 of 5

Perrott St Cottage is set on a huge block, so despite being in what seems like normal suburban Armidale, it feels like you're out in the country! The baby alpacas in the front paddock increased the farm-like feel. My dog loves it because she can run around freely in a nice big and safe yard! The cottage is quirky and homely; in Armidale's mid winter nights you need to snuggle up tight in the comfy bed. And in the morning the glass patio doors let the glorious winter sunshine stream in and it's very hard to pack up and leave!

Cute, cosy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent pet-friendly place to stay. The cottage is small but perfectly equipped with all you need to be self contained. It provided a warm and cosy haven from the Armidale winter. Good location for getting to the university - was there for intensive school - and had a well-fenced yard which kept the puppies safe and happy. I appreciated the lovely decorating details with reference to a 60's aesthetic and country comfort. Really charming. The vase of fresh daisies and lavender on the bathroom sill was lovely. Would definitely recommend and will hope to stay again for the next intensive school trip to Armidale.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Staying at Perrott St Cottage feels like being on a farm, but it's only a few minutes from the centre of town. It's quirky and homely. On a frosty and sunny winter's morning it's an absolute delight.
