Great location in a cosy, wood-fire heated cottage. No reception so it is great to switch off and enjoy the walks, wombat spotting, farm animal feeding, spa baths and watching one of the many DVDs available to borrow (free!). The well stocked kitchenette (cooking oil, salt and pepper, pots and pans, etc), surprise breakfast basket and complimentary on-site grown hazelnuts... More

We all had the most wonderful trip away with our two young boys. They enjoyed helping feed the farm animals and adventuring around the property whilst keeping in touch with us via walkie talkies kindly supplied by the lovely management. We were even given some lovely homemade cake for afternoon tea. As we were away for my birthday (during May)... More

What an enchanting hidden retreat. Two friends wanting to escape Grand Prix week end Melbourne, and this was the perfect solution. The welcome we received was warm and genuine and the cottage "Mountain View" lived up to its name with gorgeous views across the valley. Birdsong, cute farm animals and a delicious basket of goodies for our breakfast the next... More

Second time we've been back, very clean and private location, lovely scenic drive up there, incredible views. Service and hospitality was fantastic. The breakfast basket included lovely, fresh farm produce and was delicious. It was perfect for a romantic and relaxing getaway. We'd definitely be coming back.

We stayed at Mt. View cottage at Hill 'n' Dale-- we've been back for a month now but cannot forget the blissful three days that we spent there (we wish we'd stayed longer). Driving toward the property for the first time, we had no clue what was in store, and boy, was it a treat! The cottage is literally nestled... More

Can't rave enough about the place. Had a great restful weekend made all the more special by the fantastic service we received from Wendy and Albert. The cottage was a great escape and will definitely be back again and utilise the fire and spa bath in winter. The beds were comfy and the place was cosy and as well as... More

They also offer a free DVD library and farm animal... More
