Description
Why stay in just another Hotel or Motel in just another Town or City?When you can do something completely different this holiday. Come over to Codrington & join us on our wonderful rural property More on the un-spoilt South West Coast of Victoria, the region famously known as "The Shipwreck Coast”.All our units are set within 6 acres of private & secluded gardens.You can stay in a Period Train Carriage for a truly unique experience, the "Port Fairy Flyer" is a 1894 carriage now a sumptuous room for 2, "Overland" is a 1907 carriage with a First Class feel, Bondi Express is a one of a kind double decker carriage offering a wonderful & memorable experience.Or choose one of our traditional Country Cottages & enjoy a sense of Rural Splendour of a bygone era. Olive Tree Cottage is a 2 bedroom very spacious cottage with bright sunny aspect, Gooseberry Cottage is a smaller 2 bedroom cottage with a marvellous deck overlooking quite gardens, Settler Cottage is the original "settlers" cottage mid 1800's now renovated to a wonderful modern unit with 1 bedroom and big living area & Station Master Lodge is a single bedroom with a great sunroom overlooking the court yard gardens.AWARDS: Voted in Top Ten "Best Place to Stay" in Victoria in 2007, 2008, & 2009. Voted finalist "Most Unique Place to Stay" 2009 & 10. Our units are AAA & RACV rated as 4 Star and 3.5 Star.Codrington Gardens is a feature of the area, something far more interesting & relaxing than a stay at just another motel or hotel in just another Town or City. The short drive out of Port Fairy rewards you with peace and quite of a rural property with massive private gardens, yet central to all the local attractions you will want to see.Enjoy our secure & private 6.5 acre property, with room to roam, space to relax, somewhere for the kids to run & play safely, a place where the whole family can spend quality time together & breath the clean fresh country air amid a true rural atmosphere. It will recharge your very soul. Less
