A lovely retreat tucked away in the bush. Very clean and had everything we needed. It was great to be able to take our dog with us too. We were greeted on arrival with a freshly baked loaf of bread which was a lovely touch. Would definitely stay again.

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting

The room was very comfortable. Lovely breakfast with homemade bread and jam. Nice to walk around the property, seeing the lovely gardens and animals.

Wish we could have stayed longer!

Lovely little cottage set in a beautiful landscape. Very reasonably priced, spaceous, well equipped and the hospitality was second to none-there was even freshly baked bread waiting for us!

wonderful hosts, was made to feel real welcome

Great experience, would have loved to stay longer. The hosts were amazing. The room is very spacious, the ensuite very tiny (not good for XL guests). The environment is just beautiful, it's common to see wildlife, very peaceful and amazing scenery. If you wish to get away from it all, that's the place to be.

Peaceful, beautiful and friendly

You'll need a car to reach Glenbrook but the short drive takes you to a beautiful setting. Barbara is the perfect host and just what I needed after a special day walking Mt Dial!
