Wagner's Cottage is in a lovely setting, and our host made everything special. Belinda was so sympathetic when an accident prevented us from getting to the first night we planned, and then understanding when we finally arrived. She had baked us fresh bread which was a delight upon our late arrival. She placed small bunches of roses everywhere in the... More

Hi Claudia, thank you for taking the time to review. As we live on the estate ourselves, it does make it easier to reorganise or change details, so that like yourself, when an unexpected delay to your planned arrival occurs, we can ensure your cottage still has the fresh welcoming feeling that you mentioned in your post.

My partner and I stayed just prior to Christmas in the original restored cottage and honestly my expectations were blown out of the water. The gardens and surrounds are stunning, and the cottage has been restored to the type of standard I would associate with B&Bs we've stayed at in rural vic/nsw/qld that are three times the price per night....

The roses in our gardens are now into their second bloom, so Belinda is able to ensure the perfume of freshly picked flowers welcomes all our guests.

We stayed here for two nights in Wagners cottage and not only was the accommodation excellent, the attention to detail is amazing. From fresh baked bread and eggs laid on the property, to the variety of coffee and tea, everything was perfect. Cannot recommend this place more highly.

How great for us that you had a memorable stay ! Belinda does work pretty hard at keeping our standards here at Wagners at a level we all seem to be happy with.
