Charming self-contained cottage

Warm and inviting free standing, self-contained cottage, 5 minutes away from the centre of Belgrave. Lovely furnishings, the smallest details taken care of. Gorgeous garden surrounds to look out on, especially with the autumn colours. Generous continental breakfast, and the owner Margaret was lovely and attentive, making sure we had everything we needed. Cute and comfortable attic bedroom, with 2 beds, tv/dvd player and heater was a bonus and made the stay fun! Close enough to the Belgrave town centre to walk, and take advantage of cafes and the cinema. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay, highly recommend and will definately return!!

Cons: Nothing!

5/5 Excellent

A stones throw experience

Belgrave has alot to offer and a stay at Stones Throw Cottage will not disappoint, its cosy,comfortable and well appointed , the cottage is within a 10 minute walk to town and the main attraction Puffing Billy, if you are arriving by train take my advice let Margaret know and she may be able to come and pick you up.

Pros: Everything!

Cons: Nothing comes to mind

Location: Puffing Billy is the star attraction, the scenery is outstanding and a drive through the puffing billy route I'm sure would be just as relaxing.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic cottage in a tranquil peaceful setting.

My husband and I absolutely loved Stones Throw Cottage in Belgrave. Margaret and Rob were so welcoming and friendly, felt like we'd known them for ages. The cottage was so comfortable and cosy and the back verandah and decking was wonderful, so much greenery everywhere was so relaxing and private. Bed was very comfy and the breakfast supplies were delicious. Would recommend this lovely cottage to anyone, very romantic for a couple and has 2 single beds in the attic room upstairs as well. Loved this place and we will definitely go back again. Thanks so much Margaret and Rob, we were sad to leave.

Pros: Everything.

Cons: The only thing that could be improved would be the noisy fan in the bathroom but that's all. Everything else was charming.

Location: Belgrave is a lovely place in the Dandenong Ranges near the Puffing Billy railway station. The cinema is good and great places to eat.

Cottage amongst the trees

We (myself, husband and daughter) spent three very comfortable nights at this B&B. At this charming little cottage, french doors opened onto a lovely garden where we could feed the bright coloured birds that came right onto the balcony. The continental breakfast was varied and delicious and our lovely hostess had made sure we had everything we needed. The kitchenette was sufficiently equipped that we could make simple meals although nearby Belgrave offered a range of restaurants and cafes. Our daughter enjoyed her own private space with own entrance in the cute little attic. Molly (the dog) and Lucy (the cat) made us feel right at home yet the luxurious bathrobes and quality touches made our stay every bit a holiday!
