Lovely well appointed cottage in a beautiful setting. We loved every part of the cottage from the spacious bedroom, quality bathroom and spa to the gorgeous kitchen and eating area. The attention to detail and thoughtfulness made Clarendon Cottages the perfect place to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.

Beautiful pristine accommodation with comfortable furnishings that would allow a peaceful retreat for anyone wanting to get away - couples or singles - it is just divine! Delicious and generous breakfast provisions provided. Our daughter who is almost 2 was even kindly loaned some toys by Gayle to... More

Very helpful owners, a wonderful location. We liked having a kitchen and the spa bath. We were on a long trip, so access to the laundry room was welcome. A trip by bus and train to Melbourne is easy, and the local area is great: Mount Dandenong, Puffing Billy to Lakeside (further is by diesel) and Healesville animal park is... More

We got married in the area and we were absolutely amazed with their cottages. The gardens were beautiful, room extremely clean, and they had a beautiful basket of food in the fridge for us to use in the morning. We will make it an annual trip for our anniversary! Thank you Chris for a great stay!

Loved the cottage, peaceful setting, beautiful garden and birds. Total relaxation. The cottage was clean, well appointed and provisioned with everything we needed to enjoy our 3 night stay. Was 40+ one day and air conditioning made it comfortable and 15 another day when we used the roaring gas fire. Crimson rosellas, wrens and 3 cookaburra's were regular visitors. Would... More

Went to this place with almost 1 year old baby. Totally love this place as it's so comforting. The fireplace, Port wine, spacious bathroom with spa, as well as the included breakfast (eggs, ham, cereals, coffee, tea, milk and orange juice) has definitely added the value for our stay. The host is accommodating too, portable cot has been provided for... More

My wife and I stayed at Clarendon Cottages twice during our trip to Australia. We spent a week in the Camelia Cottage and on our return from a two-night stay at Uluru Resort we had three nights in the Dovecote Cottage. The breakfast provisions and little extras provided make these cottages feel very special. Both were spotlessly clean and furnished... More

My husband and I visited for the second time since our honeymoon, and found the cottage had been really well renovated and maintained, while keeping its charm and comfort. The views and seclusion for this small property are great, and the owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. A great little get away!

Idyllic location and surrounds. Beautifully appointed rooms and amenities. Views of the stunning gardens out every window. Provisions for a great breakfast in the morning and great kitchen facilities if wanting to prepare any other meal. It's not cheap but you get what you paid for and it certainly is a luxury.
