“A very lovely, cozy, clean and well presented cottage that is very close to the wineries. Christine and Richard were lovely hosts, friendly and hospitable. The cottage was perfect location for us… 10 minutes to the wineries in Broke and Hermitage Rds (they offered to drive and pick us up too!). The cottage is off the main road but far enough from the road noise. I loved hearing the birds chirping and the leaves on the trees as the wind blows them. I loved Christine’s finishing touches in the room, the decor, the fresh flowers and the little chocolates she’s provided… They have 3 lovely little friendly dogs and an ex-thoroughbred who is just so gorgeous to look at and pat. I would definitely recommend for couples!… and will stay here again.” – Katherine


“Everything was great honestly, very clean and neat! I feel like the photos don’t do it justice!! Suggestion would only be maybe the addition of a brighter table lamp – just to create a bit more vibe! But that is such a minor minor detail. We loved our stay and the pretty garden!!! and will be back if around the area again!! Thanks again 🙂 have a great weekend.


“Amazing hospitality, close to everything. Very friendly and offer great advice for the surrounding area. Great place to base yourself from when exploring the wineries. Thanks again for your great hospitality. Would definitely love to come back up soon when we need more wine! :-)” – Benjamin
