Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real gem! Close enough to Bridport to enjoy the coastal attractions but out of town enough to enjoy the delightful rural/bush setting. A quality, well run establishment AND pet friendly!PLUS, the opportunity to spend the twilight hours observing a platypus in the wild; just a short walk from our cottage.Just great, highly recommended!
