Great Holiday after a tough year
Thank you John and Anne for giving us a wonderful stay at your cottage. We really loved exploring your beautiful garden. Our son enjoyed splashing in the stream next to the property. John went out of his way to get a bicycle for our son as we couldn’t hire a kids bike. We look forward to visiting again. Thank You Mela and Aslam Assen

The perfect getaway.
This was our second stay with John and Anne and it won’t be our last. We simply love it here. The scenery is stunning and the birdlife magnificent and that’s without even leaving the grounds! Harrietville is the perfect base to explore the area. The room is clean, comfortable, equipped with everything we needed and the view from the verandah made us never want to leave! Love it so much!

Quiet oasis in a beautiful village
2 cottages and an apartment (the upstairs of the hosts' house). Stunning gardens, great hosts. We were in the apartment which has lovely views of the garden but is a bit smallish (even for just 2). Although we didn't see inside, the cottages looked much more spacious and certainly had more privacy and general ambience, being set in different parts of the garden. No complaints though.

Magical garden
John and Anne made us feel very welcome, and we felt so lucky to share their wonderful garden. I had a marvellous time exploring the nooks and corners, and sitting by the creek. Fresh eggs from the free range hens and charming Harrietville- a perfect gem to stay and take a breath before the busy season.
