So cozy and peaceful. Loved the outdoor fire/bbq. We took full advantage of the clear skies and roasted marshmallows on the fire under the stars. My dog also had a great adventure. Definitely on the list to go back and hopefully stay longer.

Such a nice spot close to the vineyards and a short drive to town and Gulgong. And surely the most comfortable beds for miles around. Thanks for having us.

Our choice for our ten year wedding anniversary. The cottage was immaculate with lots of old world charm. Tranquil and relaxing. Perfect for a break away from city life.

This quaint little rustic cottage is full of charm and comfortable. With it's colonial feel and tranquil bush setting it gives it's guest the perfect location for a peaceful getaway. With all the ingredients ready to make a hearty breakfast all provided and able to be enjoyed on the verandah whilst watching the local fauna go about their way.

Delightful cabin in a bush setting

Pros: A very stylish cabin in a quiet bush setting with very helpful hosts just a few minutes outside a wonderful wine town with great coffee and dining
Cons: Everything was very nice.
Location: Cellar door tasting in the many wineries, regional food products, fine coffee and dining. Our favourite was Alby and Esther's.
We had a mother and daughter stay in this charming cottage exquisitely decorated with pretty details and everything we needed was provided: very comfortable beds with lovely linens, warm homemade bread and breakfast provisions, cosy fire and lots of firewood. I enjoyed sitting on the verandah enjoying the view, the quietness and the many birds. Chris and Susan were gracious and kind hosts who gave us helpful information about the best spots in Mudgee. We enjoyed the pleasant 15 minute drive into town.

Cute cottage.

Pros: See review above.
Cons: Can't really think of anything.
Location: It is about 15 minutes out of town and to wineries.
This cute cottage was clean, the beds were comfortable and it had a lovely big, deep bath. The kitchen was stocked with all the basics like olive oil, salt, pepper, butter, spreads, cereal, etc. and we were given a freshly baked loaf of bread on arrival. The fire was easy to use and fun for the kids to roast marshmallows on. It's about 15 or so minutes out of town which was fine for us as we just wanted to chill out and enjoy being in the country. I would definitely stay there again.

Thanks for the review Fiona. Unfortunately the seclusion of the cottages rules out a Wi-Fi network. We're always on the lookout for new technology in this dept.
