We were a party of 3 couples who booked Protea cottage for our annual Yuletide celebrations. The cottage was easy to find in a beautiful setting just outside Mudgee. We could find no faults with how well the cottage was equipped but couldn't believe we'd forgotten to check if the kitchen had a dishwasher! Big mistake as my husband then became chief dishwasher as he'd booked the weekend. The rest of our party cooked the Christmas dinner Saturday night.
We soon made the cottage cosy as there was a pot belly stove with abundant wood outside the back door. It would have been lovely to have had the fire roaring when we arrived as it was freezing.
Vanessa and Fiona our hosts provided a fresh loaf of bread for our breakfast Saturday morning and loved the home made marmalade which was provided in the fridge. We hardly noticed their presence and even though they were only next door. Loved the chooks Alpaca and sheep at the property. We even helped ourselves to freshly grown herbs in the garden. Our weekend went too quickly and would have loved a later check out to play tennis on the well maintained court on Sunday.More
