Clean facility - provisions included were very generour. Scenery from the veranda was amazing. The horses were friendly & the kangaroos were awesome. The whole weekend was made special by the peace and tranquility of the cabin. The setting was beautiful and we would definitely book this cabin again. Look forward to our next stay there.

Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
Location: location is beautiful
Most disappointing, beds were dreadful, half a roll of toilet paper for 4 adults, BBQ was filthy nothing to clean it with,nothing to light outdoor fire with, toilet blocked wonderful with 4 adults, and to top it off the walls are paper thin can hear any and everything, even when someone is tinkling in the toilet, all in all most unpleasant.

Hi , Very disappointed that you didn't have a positive experience staying in our cottage. You did mention some of these after you had checked out. We are on the property therefore if you had contacted us we could've perhaps sorted out some of the problems for you. It's very unusual to get bad reviews from our cottage guests and we're sorry that it wasn't a pleasant experience for you.

Great place for a large group

Great place to stay. Dog friendly. Only catch is that the yard isn't enclosed so we had to lock the dogs in the kitchen (which is linoleum anyway).

Was a great place to stay with a group of friends

Cosy, clean and well equipped. The fire pit and complimentary breakfast were an added bonus. Great place to stay with friends and/or family whilst visiting the hunter valley
