When u imagine staying in the high country, beautiful country cottage set in beautiful gardens and great facilities - this is what you get! I wish all accommodation was this good! We had a fantastic time but the accommodation was the key!

Reviewed October 26, 2006

Looking for a quiet few days in the North East Victorian highlands we contacted John and Anne Atkins at Shady Brook Cottages. We stayed there for three days and were not disappointed.

Our comfortable and spacious 2 bedroom cottage was excellent in every way. Set on 14 acres of exquisite gardens in the Ovens Valley, the scenery and birdlife gave our stay a magical quality.

The cost was very reasonable, given the standard of accommodation. If you're looking for tranquility, natural beauty and superb, self contained cottage style accommodation, this is it.

We'll be back, no doubt.

  • Liked — Comfort, quality, taste and attention to detail
  • Disliked — Two couples but only one double bed bedroom
  • Tips/Secrets — If you can organise it there are off peak/midweek rate savings to be gained.
