The location of the Gardener's Cottage within Brickendon is very private set in amongst a nice garden and with views only millionaires could afford. Rolling hills in the distance, fresh air and solitude is truly worth staying for 2 nights BUT I wouldn't stay much longer than that. The cottage was fixed up in 1993 from being abandoned for many...

I would like to thank you for your review and hope that our planned closure of this cottage over the winter months will address all the issues that you had. Unfortunately dealing with heritage buildings that date from the early 1830's there are often problems associated with their age but we are also very conscious of our visitors experience so... More

We stayed recently in Coachman's Cottage for one night with our 13 year old daughter. The house was very spacious and would easily fit 6 people. We absolutely loved the open fire and the historical feel of the whole cottage,its quality antique furniture and its beautiful setting.Breakfast supplies were more than ample and the jams were delicious. Even though we... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights in Pumpkin Cottage on the World Heritage Listed Brickendon Estate. The three farm cottages are within a short stroll from the heritage Brickendon farm and entry to the farm is included in the price of the accommodation. At $175.00 per night I thought it a bit expensive, but we loved our little cottage despite... More

We stayed in the Sweet Corn cottage and the fire had been prepared for us and lit so it was very cosy when we arrived. Louise was so friendly and helpful and showed my city children all the farm animals and the sheep being shorn. Definitely bring your own food and cook it there- the kitchen is easy to use... More

We went back to Brickendon and stayed in Gardener's Cottage , the place where my wife and i got engaged some 14 year ago. Both love the charm and history and want to come back with the kids. Such a romantic location. Everything you need is supplied from breakfast provisions to laundry and fire place.

We chose here to for our night as we thought it would be interesting. It was indeed, for us city folks. Lovely animals where we had the chance to participate in their feeding session in the morning. The sheep and the horses along the main path in the farm were especially friendly! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves playing with animals and... More

This accommodation was certainly different and gave a perspective of life in the "olden days" for farm employees. The estate is certainly historic and very interesting with lovely peaceful countryside views. If you prefer 5 star accommodation this is not for you, but I couldn't fault the continental breakfast provisions and the comfy bed. Chickens poking around below the verandah... More

We stayed in the Gardener's Cottage and just loved it. The restoration is excellent, keeping the colonial feel and providing modern conveniences. Our hosts and staff could not have been more helpful. this was a perfect escape from city life - so peaceful and scenic.
