I have a few weary friends in recovery mode and they did one or two events. The satisfaction was immense! Hope your next stay involves lazy walks aong the river and lots of winery and...

Second time we have stayed at Abby's cottages. Both times stayed in Bonnies Cottage. The second stay was even better than the first with some funky new interior touches. View is the best you will find because it's situated in an elevated spot in the Wandiligong valley. Looking out over the valley and the mountains opposite. It's a little bit...

We try to get to Bright at least once a year and whenever we do we book into Abby's Cottages and have never been disappointed. Living in inner city Melbourne it is a refreshing change to be surrounded by stunning scenery. The fauna and flora is a treat for jaded city senses, yet it is only a bike ride/flat walk...

Hi Mike & Yvonne you have described everthing so well. What a wonderful area to visit and I love living here. I must say having Cloud Nine our new luxury comfy Cinema is a value add to the area. I've just had a sense of fauna and flora myself. We walked up Mt Buffalo on Sunday. It is so beautiful...

I have been fortunate enough to visit here three times and it's such a relief from the workaday world in the city. Every convenience is at hand. Stunning scenery. Visits from the local kangaroo mob. It's just it all. And those shops and restaurants in Bright are great. Heaps of drive-to locations: Buller, Tawonga Gap, Smoko, My Beauty and Beechworth...

The Wandi Pub is a value add since it has recently has new owners. They are young and swtiched on. Great meals and good service and just a short walk from the cottages. I love hearing how our guests enjoy sitting on the veranda enjoying the wild life and peace and clam of the valley. We will be here waiting...

A beautifully appointed cottage in a stunning location surrounded by chesnut trees and other flowering trees with stunning mountain views. A plethora of beautiful birds and kangaroos. This was our second stay and our hosts Sue and Don are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. Gas heater left on to warm up the cottage on our arrival (a very cold...

Really loved the location of the property and fact it was close to Bright, yet tucked away in peace and quiet. The cottage (Abby's) was clean, warm and lit on arrival with refreshments. Decor is tasteful, bed is comfy, view is amazing. Was lovely to have breakfast provisions provided but I couldn't help thinking it would have been just that...
