Brook Cottage is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We stayed at Brook Cottage for 4 nights in winter and had a wonderful time in the fresh crisp country air. The 5 children loved the property, especially the cubby house and alpacas. It was cold but the combustion fires and heating kept us warm. There was also a sand pit and tree swing which kept the children amused for hours. Great property for two families to comfortably stay in. We will be back again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was the perfect, restful holiday that we needed. My son instantly bonded with the two alpalcas as well as demanding scraps so he could feed the chooks. Our kelpie had a ball running around the fenced yard although she and the alpacas had staring competitions from each side of the fence! The veranda was the perfect place just to unwind, read a book or just take in the view. Very comfortable and the owner thought of everthing to make the stay easy. Can't wait to return.
