We spent a night in the cottage and had dinner and breakfast in the guesthouse. It was built around 170 years ago and you can't expect it to be at the same time historic and "modern". The building includes two cells on the lower level where convicts were kept in dark, cramped and what must have been in winter horribly cold conditions. Leg irons and a ball and chain can be found in these cells.We has 2 most wonderful meals there (with the dinner washed down by our own wine). Caroline the owner is a delight and a great cook. If you have a sense for history and enjoy conversation and would like to experience in a small way what life was like in the Australia of the past in a most beautiful valley you will enjoy your stay.
