A wonderful and relaxing weekend getaway. Gorgeous property nestled amongst rainforest. We travelled in January 2012 and definately can't wait to go back! They have very cozy self contained cabins with a fire place and spa bath. We were welcomed with a gorgeous breakfast basket filled with freshly baked bread. They also offer a free DVD library and farm animal... More

As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and welcomed. The new young owners, Eddy and Lara were very friendly and knew the area well so could advise places to see and activities. We especially enjoyed the wonderful Chandon Winery and the new Chocolaterie. Healesville has good cafes and restaurants, but the cabin was fully self-contained so we could enjoy... More

Great stay in Ferny Glade cottage. Staff were very welcoming and the breakfast hamper had that special home-made feel to it with the freshly baked bread and eggs straight from the hen house. Loved the serenity of the place, yet it was perfectly placed to explore the sites around the Yarra Valley.

Hill'n'dale is hidden away in the hills about 15k outside of Healesville. The location is stunning - a very quiet smallholding, surrounded by beautiful forest and farmland. The cottages are simple and quaint - don't expect wifi or ipod docking! The breakfast basket provided was great and enough to last us a couple of days - the best bits were... More

We visited Hill 'n' Dale with our two children, 7 and 4 years, and enjoyed every minute of our 2 night stay. The cottage was clean and comfortable, the provisions delicious, and the surroundings so peaceful and pretty. The hosts are delightful and warmly engage with the children. The kids adored the farm animals and appreciated the play area. We... More

We got the Ferny Glade cottage as it could accomodate 5 folks. Wish we could try out the mountain glade cottage! Anyway, its a good place to hide away. Definitely need a car to get to. Positives: serene surroundings, wifi available near the main lodge, nice walk/exercise up the hill to see "in-house" domesticated alpacas, goats and sheep, water heater... More

Have just spent the weekend at this fabulous little oasis in the middle of paradise for our 30th wedding anniversary. Fresh eggs, home baked bread, a roaring fire and so well provisioned that we wanted for nothing. The cottages are so spaced out you don't even see the other guests (if there were any!) Perfect way to lock out the... More

Generous accomodation and very helpful, friendly staff. We took two children and they had a wonderful time exploring the surrounds and feeding the animals. The extra thought that went into the accomodation such as the breakfast basket, generous amounts of kindling and firewood and the access to DVD's made it so much more special. The location was fabulous and we... More
