My mother and I stayed in Hollyhock Cottage for 2 nights recently but wished we could have stayed forever.... everything was just perfect and Belinda couldn't have been a more hospitable host. Our stay at Wagner's Cottages was a definite highlight of our trip to Australia. Belinda greeted us on arrival with so much helpful information and awaiting us in...

Thank you girls, for your review, it was a pleasure to have you stay. It is rewarding for us when our guests find the cottages as comforting as we ourselves would expect. I would also like to add that we opened a bottle of rosé last night whilst recounting your stay and made us both smile. Kindest regards.....Kerry and Belinda...

We stayed here for two nights in Wagners cottage and not only was the accommodation excellent, the attention to detail is amazing. From fresh baked bread and eggs laid on the property, to the variety of coffee and tea, everything was perfect. Cannot recommend this place more highly.

How great for us that you had a memorable stay ! Belinda does work pretty hard at keeping our standards here at Wagners at a level we all seem to be happy with.

Thank you for your review, I am so glad you were able to enjoy the roses! We have over 300 on the estate so there is usually a fair choice of aromas. It was rewarding for us that you enjoyed your stay, maybe longer next time........ All the best from Angus, Belinda oh and Kerry.

We stayed in the Primrose Cottage at Wagner's for two nights in October. It is a beautiful stone cottage in the same design as the original 1855 home.

It was a delight to have you stay with us.

Our beautiful studio cottage was simply perfect in every way. From the gorgeous comfy bed to the stunning patio we loved it all! Our host was also very pleasant and had a beautiful loaf of fresh homemade bread for us when we arrived. Everything about these cottages was just perfect!

We were very happy to see that even after such a long trip to get here, our Studio cottage met with your expectations and gave you somewhere to recharge your batteries ......I have to agree, even though I might be a little biased ......sitting on the patio gazing into the gardens is not a bad way to spend some time....

We had a great time in the wagners cottage. It is highly recommended and one of the better places we have stayed. The grounds are really nice. The cottage is nicely appointed and clean. Great spa and shower. Fresh eggs and baked bread. Short stroll to the beach and swansea is a nice spot to relax.
