“Peaceful Haven in the bush”
Reviewed April 16, 2009

We chose this place because we were looking for somewhere to relax for a couple of days and the choice was a good one! The cottage is split into two self contained units which were spotlessly clean and supplied with all the usual supplies, plus a whole host of extras such as chocolates, fresh coffee, wine, a huge selection of teas etc,etc.

The location is in recently developed bushland, it was amazingly quiet, with just the noise of wildlife for company. Native birds at the door at breakfast time were amazing. A great cooked breakfast was provided by the hosts and included in the package.

The accomodation was great, with a gas fire which made the place incredibly cozy on a night. All round we couldn't complain or want for anything. Loads of information on parks and places to visit in the area too.

We were looking for an escape from the world and found exactly what we were looking for here!
