For a guy whose favourite fruit by a mile is raspberries, a fresh jar of homemade jam in the cupboard was the perfect way to start our stay.
The whole cottage was very well appointed, the rooms are big, the beds are comfortable and bathroom big too (great water pressure). There are also fresh, farm eggs in the kitchen, and every utensil you could need. It's a small thing, but Peta even gives you proper cleaning liquid to wash up. So many places have rubbish that evaporates before your eyes. Bread is provided at the bakery every other day for guests.
The kids loved the backyard to run around in. It was massive.
There are heaps of books if you want to put your feet up and have a read, plus loads of info on local attractions and places to go. It's a short stroll into town, and to the Richmond Bridge, and for anyone with kids who need some more room to play a bit of footy, or cricket, the Richmond footy ground is just around the corner (with one of the best surfaces i have ever seen just quietly).
My only advice would be to ensure you are out right on 10am when you leave. We had all our luggage out at 1020am and received a slightly terse phone call later that day to say that we have inconvenienced both the cleaner and the owner for the entire day. This was despite us leaving the cottage pretty clean on our departure anyway.
Despite that minor sour point, I'd highly recommend anyone to stay here. Families, Couples. Whoever.
