Cosy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The fire was already going when we arrived on a cold July evening. The cottage was as advertised and the breakfast items were a welcome addition. It was only a few minutes walk into the town. I would recommend this for a cosy weekend escape.

ABSOLUTELY Magnificent !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Paddymelon was one of the most enjoyable nights out in my life .. a 4min walk to the main st of Clunes for a sensational meal at the National Hotel ... Plesently greeted at the door with the log fire already burning away and the house toasty warm .. All the options set out for us for breakfast and a huge selection of DVD's to chose from when kicking back later in the evening ... just a wonderful place to stay and a beautifully restored old homestead.

A lovely cottage stay!

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our recent weekend at Paddymelon! John and Marlene provided a great country style breakfast complete with fresh eggs from the chooks roaming around in the backyard, as well as very comfortable accomodation for both sleeping and relaxing. They were also very generous in letting us checkout at our leisure on Sunday morning. We highly recommend Paddymelon Cottage!

Great cottage excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The four of us were very comfortable. John met us and explained where everything was. The breakfast ingredients supplied were excellent although we did not need them as we brought our own. Marlene and John provided eggs, bread, 2 different cereals, milk, jam, vegemite, 3 types of tea and coffee. What more could you ask? Driveway big enough for 2 cars off street. Lovely sunny garden view from kitchen complete with chooks. Short walk to Top Shop if you needed dinner. Comfortable lounge room with excellent TV and WiFi. Beautiful hot shower.
