A great place to relax and unwind

  • 4 of 5

A lovely little spot, just perfect for a city escape. Close to plenty of attractions and the hosts were so kind and thoughtful. We really enjoyed relaxing by the fire with a some local food and wine. Definitely coming back!

Most Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an absolute treasure, quietly tucked away just out of town. With no noise, just the country quietness and livestock milling around it is a perfect break to simply sit back and relax. On a clear cold night there is nothing better than to sit back and stare at the bright stars and then pop back inside to the warm fireplace.

We enjoyed every moment of our stay

  • 4 of 5

Wood fire, feeding the birds, watching cows and horses all around, comfortable bed what more could you want. Some fantastic drives around the area our best being the round trip queen Mary falls and gorge, be aware tho you do need a 4wheel drive for this as there are 13 river crossings, fantastic fun .Lily was most helpful in giving us more wood when needed.

Quite disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Nice location...but heaps of negatives. The cottage (tin shed) needs a good clean, the flyscreens so dirty, the utensils/cutlery drawer (washed everything before I used it) as well as the mis-matched crockery. No face washer or hand towel provided in the bathroom and less than 2 rolls of toilet paper for 4 days for 2 people. Radio did not work as no antenna. Could not play a DVD as the player would not open , Austar was intermittent. Seemed someone was living in the one bedroom as half of the wardrobe was taken up with their , swag, suitcase etc . On top of which the bbq would not ignite . Overpriced for what we got. Also no compendium to refer to
