“An oasis of calm”
Reviewed May 21, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I’d like to thank you Prue and Rod, for my stay at Tara. It was just the break I needed in calm and beautiful surroundings after a hectic week. The muted tones in the cottage’s décor reinforced a peaceful feeling. It felt spacious but also cosy. I appreciated the extra touches such as the lights and heater being turned on in anticipation of my arrival. Tara was spotless and everything worked well. You even supplied extra touches such as tea, coffee and toiletries. I especially enjoyed the bottle of wine which was an unexpected but welcomed surprise. It was also great to be able to take my little dog with me on the mini-break. He enjoyed sniffing around your lovely garden while I enjoyed a relaxing glass of wine on the veranda, gazing over Daylesford. The next day, he spent a short time in the dog run while I walked down to the Lakehouse Restaurant to check it for my next visit to the area. We’d love to stay at Tara again when we return to Daylesford.
