Stayed recently in Patrick's Cottage as a family group. Four separate suites each consisting of a roomy bedroom & smallish but totally adequate modern bathroom. Beds were so comfy & you could request them to be made up as either a king or 2 singles. The main living area is amazing, sliding doors out on to a covered verandah which when combined with the open plan kitchen/dining/lounge room made for a MASSIVE living area. We had regular visits from families of kangaroos who came so close to the verandah it seemed they were daring us to pat & cuddle them. Add to that the birdlife & many sightings of cute rabbit families very close to the cottage & you really are in the the Aussie bush.......all in the middle of a vineyard! We were surprised when the estate manager arrived with fresh milk, bread & juice & the supply of tea/coffee/jams/spreads/butter already in the cottage was welcome & not often seem in this type of accommodation. Cannot recommend Patrick's Cottage highly enough, don't give staying here a second thought........"just do it!"
