My partner and I recently stayed 2 nights, the cottages were so lovely our room felt warm & welcoming. The gardens are beautiful and so were the stars at night. Sitting by the fire at night sipping the local wine was a wonderful experience something I had not done before. John and Penny were great hosts making our stay enjoyable,... More

We have been coming here for over twenty years and can report after a recent visit that the accommodation and restaurant are as good as ever. The increasingly good local wine is well represented on the wine list. There is no better place to stay in the Granite Belt.

Enjoyed a lovely 2 night stay with my partner and 13 yr old son. Stayed in a Queen bed cottage, paying extra for 3 people (reasonable charge for extra person). Lovely setting and cosy cottages. Friendly helpful staff. Is about a 20min drive from the centre of Stanthorpe, but still very close to wineries (which surround the area!) and Giraween... More

My family, including children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, has just celebrated our mother's 80th birthday at Vineyard Cottages. The owners, John and Penny, were fantastic. We arrived to warm and welcoming cottages and then proceeded up to the restaurant where we celebrated with drinks in front of a toasty fireplace. The children entertained themselves with games provided by our friendly... More

So, a friend suggested we go and follow the wine road through the granite belt. We chose to stay at this venue mainly because it was all we could get in to at the last minute. What a great decision it was. They offer a selection of cottages, that are exactly that, cottages. All are clean and well equipped, complete... More

What a very charming place to stay and relax for a long weekend. Everything I had read on Trip Advisor (positive) was confirmed. Our accommodation in a king terrace cottage was extremely comfy. During winter the cottages are kept constantly warm. The rooms are clean and well appointed. In the evening we enjoyed a lovely glass of red in front... More

The owners John and Penny make this place very warm and friendly. This is our second visit here spending two nights in the Vineyard Cottages and their customer service and relaxed vibe makes this place a very pleasant weekend away. Use of local produce and an excellent chef, The Vineyard Cafe is an excellent place to eat. Accompanied with an... More

I cannot find words good enough to describe this place. The food was second to none as was the service. John and Penny were absolutely amazing hosts who made you feel more like friends than customers. We all tried different meals and we all practically licked the plate clean. It was quite cold however John and Penny accommodated to us... More

We travelled with another couple to the Stanthorpe/Ballandean region for an Easter break and spent 3 nights staying here. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and our two-bedroom cottage had everything we needed (except a kitchen sink!). It was a great place to base ourselves while exploring Girrawean National Park and the wineries, markets and food shops in the region.... More
