The owners have thought of everything in this luxury cottage set amongst the tree ferns and we wished we could have had more than two nights. Our cottage - Silverbrook - was totally secluded. We drove right up to the steps, bypassing reception because the key was in the door. As son as you walk in you know that this accommodation lives up to the brochure images and genuinely deserves the luxury tag.
There has been no skimping on the services here . Many places leave you two teabags for each day and just enough milk to dampen your cereal! Not here - a generous selection of Twinings teas; Vittoria coffee for the plunger; a loaf of bread; bacon, eggs, tomato, mushrooms; fruit....and even fresh oranges to squeeze.
This is a retreat, a real getaway so the lack of wi-fi and tricky telephone connection means you have to relax. Take a book. Go for a walk. Visit some wineries. Explore coffee and eating options in Healesville. We did the Healesville Hotel for dinner and Essenza for coffee - tucked away between two shops near the postoffice - both were excellent. Or go fro a drive across the Black Spur to Buxton & Marysville. This has to be one of the most beautiful drives - tall, straight gums tower above a carpet of tree ferns.
We drove from Melbourne and visited the Yarra Valley Dairy where we put together our own lunch platter from their extensive cheese selection, and then went on to Yering Station Winery for a tasty wine tasting. I'd recommend both but don't rush them - savour the flavours, the views and take a little time to talk with the staff.
