We want to thank Poppy and Jack for a wonderful and relaxing time in their cute and beautiful cottage.
We were visiting Peterson Winery in Armidale, who I believe make the best wine.(next door) We decided it would be good to stay a few days there but was told they were fully booked but highly recommended somewhere a little different but very quaint. The owners recommended Poppys.
When we arrived at the cottage we just thought this would be a great time to enjoy something different we had never done before.
We had the greatest time, they admit it is not 5 star but to us we were so impressed by the look of the place and it is so unique, so clean but so lovely. I would highly recommend the cottage, but its not just the cottage or the wonderful home made delicious foods but the owners themselves. So giving and so caring, we just felt so at home and so relaxed.
Anyone to say different should have their heads seen to. Jean Shaw
