    Relaxing place to stay

    This is a lovely little attached cottage that is well appointed in the kitchen and entertainment items. We were very relaxed here and felt most welcomed by the two farm dogs.

    5/5 Excellent

    Quiet, Private, Comfortable

    We only stayed 2 hot summer nights at this quaint but well appointed cottage but were very comfortable and pleased we had made the decision to stay out of Ballarat. The kitchen is huge and contains all the utensils and basic foods required if you wish to self cater. The bedroom linen and bathroom towels were immaculate. We loved the fresh air and big sky and were welcomed, very enthusiastically, by the two farm dogs. We would happily return next time we are in the area.
