5/5 Excellent

Bliss in the country
A log fire to keep you warm, surrounded by nature, plenty of trees and birds. Provisions supplied were excellent. Bedroom slightly small, but hey, you only sleep there. Hosts were welcoming and friendly, but not intrusive. highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful cabin
A lovely little cabin. The hosts Diane and Steven have added nice welcoming touches such as the pre-prepared fire and breakfast.

4/5 Good

Cottage Sanctuary @ Flowerpot
I loved this little cottage and all the touches of gorgeous teas etc. Unfortunately it was a freezing night and the fire didn't warm up for hours & probably needed bigger pieces of wood but the electric blanket made up for it. An oil heater would have helped. A perfect place for me to get away from the city. It was a gorgeous little cottage.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely Relaxing Stay
We had a lovely time here, having a fire lit, eating tasty breakfast and playing scrabble. Very relaxing and a great base to go and see Bruny Island.

5/5 Excellent

Stay at cabin
