        A lovely and cosy winter stay

        We were so impressed with the thoughtfulness and generosity of our hosts. The cottage was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. All the little things from the games, magazines and dvd's to the incredible breakfast supplies and the cosy fire awaiting us on arrival left us wanting for nothing and able to just relax and enjoy our stay. You can tell that Chris and Gayle take real pride and joy in providing a wonderful experience for their guests. Thank you so much for a great weekend away. We can't wait to visit this lovely area again.

          Gorgeous property

          We had a lovely weekend in the Stables Cottage. On arrival our host Chris was extremely helpful on what to do in the area and where to eat. The Cottage itself was very cosy, quaint and comfortable. The beds were very comfy as were the lounges and especially the gas log fire. The Breakfast Hamper and other goodies left by Chris our host was just fantastic and catered for all our needs. The property is in a perfect spot and enabled us to explore the area all within close proximity whether it was bushwalking, checking out the many cafes or shopping. We will definitely be back and stay any time we are over this area again.

          5/5 Excellent
