“Secluded getaway, yet close to the action!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

We recently stayed here for a birthday weekend away for my husband. I'll admit I booked it purely based on location - walking distance (1.5km - 20 mins) from 10 minutes by Tractor, where we had dinner booked on the second night .... but there's much more to these cottages than location!

We arrived and were met by Louise, the chatty and friendly owner, who took us down to our cottage (Kookaburra), and showed us around, and gave us instructions on how to maintain and light the wood burning fire, which was already roaring away, giving a warm glow to the cottage. The cottage consists of a bedroom opening out onto a little patio with chairs to sit in the sun, ensuite with spa bath and overhead shower, kitchenette with microwave, electric frypan, and a two ring portable cooktop, as well as the usual toaster/kettle etc, and an open plan area with dining table, sofa,coffee table, flat screen TV/DVD/video/stereo, and a wood burning fire. French doors also open out from the dining area to an outdoor table, and walking from here round to the bedroom patio, you have two sunloungers. All of this surrounded by beautiful surroundings - open fields, kookaburras laughing, and hardly a sign of another human (although there is a pony and an alpaca), despite being right next door to the other cottage!!

Breakfast is provided on a cook-your-own basis - and we probably could have fed ourselves for a week's breakfasts on the supplies provided! Bread, eggs, mushrooms, bacon, tomatoes, a can of beans, muesli, cereal, milk, butter, jam, juice, coffee, tea! For those wishing to self cater further than just breakfast, it would be possible with the creative use of the appliances provided, and the fridge would fit your own provisions as well as the breakfast ones provided. All the cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery you need are provided. As is ample firewood, the best fluffy towels ever, lots of pillows, cotton buds in the bathroom drawer, torches to light your way if you go out at night (it's VERY dark if there's no moon) .... almost everything you could think of.

If you venture out, as well as 10x Tractor, there's the restaurants of Noel's Gallery, La Petanque and Green Olive all within easy walking distance. T'Gallant is 2km away, as is the strawberry farm. More than enough to fill a weekend without needing a car. Louise will check if you have bookings and make the required phone calls if needs be.

Really, we had the most pleasant weekend - helped by sunny days, and cold nights so we could crank up the fire, a comfy bed and good nights' sleep! The only things that would have made this perfect would be fluffy bathrobes and the morning papers delivered ;)

(It's probably worthwhile mentioning, as this seems to important to many people, that there's no wi-fi, but we had 3G enabled devices, and there's a clear signal!)

Room Tip: Kookaburra has amazing views, Rose has more garden space.

Stony Creek Cottages was the perfect stay for our redhill itinerary namely: Redhill markets, evening meal at 10 x tractor , La Pétanque and wine tasting in the Redhill region.

Louise was a fantastic host, greeting us with personal warmth, a roaring fire and a customised breakfast supply for the weekend. The cottage was spotless and well equipped for our needs.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend for anyone wanting to explore the Redhill region or even the greater area of Mornington Peninsula.

We were lucky enough to book three nights in this spacious fully fitted cottage. Arriving on Friday night, Louise our host greeted us warmly, guided us to the cottage and showed us all that was on offer. How good to be welcomed by a blazing wood fire and electric blankets already doing their job on a freezing and wet night. Our breakfast hamper hit the spot in the morning, and the resident alpaca greeted us through the kitchen window. A spacious spa bath was another welcome treat. This is just the spot for a romantic getaway with many local attractions nearby.

Spent a few nights in Red Hill at these cottages, was very nice, very chilled, very clean and plenty of breakfast food provided. Louise the owner was great to deal with, exceptionally thorough and honest. This place is a 5 minute walk from Ten Minutes by Tractor Winery where we had dinner one night, which is brilliant in itself. Would recommend these cottages to friends and family without hesitation. Thanks Louise for all your efforts in making our stay easy, esp with the fold out bed.

We stayed one night in the Monterosso cottage and found it very neat and cosy. It is set away from the owners' house and the bedroom opens up directly on a private garden surrounded by hedges. The cottage was stocked with movies, magazines and provisions for a great breakfast of cereal, toast and yoghurt. The owner, Louise, was exceptionally welcoming and accommodating.

The area is very quiet at night, although there was a little traffic noise in the morning.
