The gardens and cottages are in a lovely area. Cottages are perfect for couples to spend time together. We spent two nights with our fur mate and this is why we chose Granite Gardens Cottages. The set up was OK but would have liked a gate on the verandah because I don't let my boy run free especially as there... More

My partner and I had a wonderful two nights here in July. The weather was mild for Winter, but we had the opportunity to light the fire for a romantic night in. The location is good - we were picked up from the cottages by our wine tour guide which was wonderful. We will visit again.

We chose a cottage stay for the weekend at the beginning of winter. The owners Mark and Fiona were very friendly and welcoming (and so was Elroy!). They gave us a run down of the place, showed us our cottage and gave a few recommendations of the local attractions (which was handy as there are a LOT of places to... More

We were very pleased with our two day stay here. The cottage was clean and felt like home as soon as you walked in. You just sank into the Queen size bed, it was so comfortable. We had everything we needed for our short stay. We weren't looking for 5 star, just a place to rest and relax after all... More

We loved staying in a beautifully appointed cottage at the Granite Gardens and will do it again. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Fantastic position, able to access sights around the region easily. The grounds were stunning and private.

From the moment you arrive you are treated very well by the owners. The cottage we stayed in had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The setting that the cottage is in is beautiful with some great wildlife to see. You are given bird seeds to feed the birds with. We can't say anything negative about this place except... More
