My wife and I stayed in the "Stonewall Cottage" for two nights in October. The cottage is beautiful, comfortable and spotlessly clean, and is situated in beautiful gardens close to the river. Town centre is a ten minute walk along the river. The hosts, Kellie and Alistair, are young and energetic with a flair for making you feel welcome. I... More

A nice place to relax easy walking distance of the town. Lovely gardens, welcoming hosts, sounds of the river. Ideal for casual cycling and bush walking. Good base for sampling local produce. Loved the homemade shortbread.

The apartments were spacious, very well fitted out, very clean and extremely comfortable. Alister made us very welcome and we really appreciated the plentiful amount of firewood for the log heater supplemented by the dual air conditioner. The grounds are... More

These cottages were outstanding. I thought I was back in England. The main house is like a manor house and the cottages are set in a garden of trees. They are well equipped and have a spa bath. The grounds are magnificent with all the native birds coming to visit. There is a gate that leads down to the river.... More

excellent accomodation near to the centre of Bright, large unit with good kitchen facilities. Spa for two. Parking is a little tricky through narrow gates, but rooms are very private. Back gate opens to the Ovens river.
