My husband and I stayed here for two nights in late October. The cottages are in a beautiful bush setting, and we had a lovely time exploring the extensive rose gardens. My husband also had a quick hit on the golf course! It is a short drive to explore all of the wineries and other gourmet goodies in the region.... More

We had a wonderful time at the cottages they were a slice of luxury in the wilderness. The wildlife was in abundance and the seed supplied attracted a beautiful variety of bird life. Mark our host was very informative about the area and his recommendations of what to see and do were spot on.

This little gem is nestled in the bush but only a short drive from all the services and attractions that Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt has too offer. The cottages are very clean and well... More

If you're looking for a cottage in the country to unwind, then this is the place. We had a fantastic stay over the long weekend in one of the cottages. The cottages are ideal for a romantic getaway. The cottage itself is clean and well set out and the spa bath looking out into the garden was a perfect addition.... More

We were met with a lovely couple who were looking after the retreat on arrival who then showed us to our cottage that was further up the driveway. The property looked out over a lovely little lake and beautiful trees that was popular with lots of birds. We enjoyed the fire place as we don't get to use them in... More

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.
