“Delightful Country Hospitality”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We stayed for the night so that we could dine at Brae. The cottage is lovely and spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and cosy which was divine after a long day of driving, surfing and dining!

Terri had left us a lovely collection of goodies for breakfast including some lovely, home stewed rhubarb for granola and quince jam for our english muffins. delicious.

This cottage is very private and completely seperate to the main house.

Offering the drop off and pick up from Brae makes everything care free and we loved the entire experience! Highly recommended.

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed March 31, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed here over Easter weekend. Terri & Ian have set up the cottage perfectly. There was nothing to want for- every little detail was thought of and provided. The place was immaculate which was very important to us. Very very clean and lots of little touches. If you are in this area I would highly recommend this accommodation.

“Brilliant spot from which to relax and enjoy Birregurra”
Reviewed February 13, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

person found this review helpful

We simply loved this place! Impeccably presented, but cosy enough to relax, kick your shoes off and relax. Nice teas, freshly (and locally) ground coffee, real milk in the fridge, biscuits in the tin, fans going on arrival - a welcoming start to a lazy three sleeps in Birregurra. The cottage is perfectly placed for an easy stroll into town for coffee, the papers, and treats. With all that surrounding towns have to offer, we could easily have stayed for a week without getting bored.
Although the owners are on the same block at the back, at no time did they encroach on our privacy or even make us aware of their presence - a subtlety often not observed, and it was really appreciated.
And as others have mentioned, the courtesy lift to Brae and return allowed us to enjoy our meal without worrying about driving - thank you.

“Excellent choice to stay!”
Reviewed January 27, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

My new husband and I stayed here the weekend after we got married as we were going to Brae for dinner. It was just perfect, right on the main road into town - easy to find, and just spotlessly clean. The little touches didn't go unnoticed - like the bottle of wine with a note for us as it was our Honeymoon, or the key with a note attached with our pick up time to Brae. Terri and Ian were wonderful hosts - driving us to and from Brae, and other than that we were left to our own devices. You wouldn't have known their house was out the back. I would thoroughly recommend Crabapples if you are travelling to Birregurra.

“Lovely, comfortable and hospitable. Highly recommended.”
Reviewed November 15, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Such a lovely, clean, well maintained cottage. Incredibly close to Brae restaurant.
While it was an unexpected surprise, we were very grateful for the complimentary drop-off and pick-up from our dinner at Brae. We had the most perfect, relaxed and enjoyable long weekend. Highly recommend Crabapples.

“Great little spot for an overnight stay after Brae.”
Reviewed November 8, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Brilliant little cottage on the main road, very friendly and helpful hosts. Ian gave us a lift to Brae and they organised our return cab. Rooms and living area are very cosy, and wifi accessible from all rooms. Great little kitchen.
