Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nature's Wonderland We found this property such a wonderfully unique experience. A lovely historic house, not done up to meet the fashion of the day, but deeply rooted in country comfort, environmental integrity and a gorgeous sunny spring garden. But more...a brief walk to the river and a fun-filled time learning to row again in the little dingy, to get to the other side - a glorious isolated beach. What more could we and our happy dog want? Sally, we acknowledge the extraordinary efforts you have made to create this wonderland, oh yes, and a comfy bed too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Cottage and Stunning Surrounds This was such a gem of a find as we were looking for somewhere we could take our dogs; an old Maremma and a much younger active Lab. This was perfect for us and for them. The cottage was so homely and comfortable. We spent most of our time when not sleeping in the very comfortable bed and gorgeous main bedroom in the fabulous sunroom where our dogs could be inside as well when they weren't out in the huge (paddock size) yard to run around. I enjoyed getting the woodstove going in the afternoon to warm the kitchen. Having grown up with a similar stove I was pleased I had not lost any ability to get it up and running. As a budding bird hobby photographer I was able to get many amazing shots just by stepping out the back door but also had a plethora of places to visit close by for further opportunity. My husband was pretty chuffed to get a brief siting of the top of a whale at Bridgewater Bay which is an opportunity to be repeated. Highly recommend the cottage for a relaxing and charming experience. We hope we have the opportunity to visit again, maybe when the weather is a bit warmer next time but even so it was still perfect for a winter holiday. We stayed five nights and were sad to pack up and leave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute gem! This was our second time staying at the cottage and we fell in love with it all over again. The location is superb with easy access to both Port Fairy, Portland and surrounds and more locally a very large and secluded garden and private walking track to the beach. The cottage itself is presented immaculately in period style but with full modern comforts. The option of being able to take the dogs is a big plus and the accommodation is also set up very well for children with the separate family/lounge room with games, books and DVDs. Most of all the cottage is simply very relaxing and we spent 3 nights which felt like a week as it was such a lovely place to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical hideaway cottage We spent a wonderfully relaxing week at this magical hideaway cottage with our Hungarian Vizsla. The cottage contained everything we could want, and more, including a chocolate Easter Bunny waiting for us in the fridge. All the facilities worked perfectly and we cooked some great meals to eat in the cosy sun room. The dog was happy sleeping in his part of the house and really loved the large garden, but especially the mysterious walk through the coastal scrub to the beach. Of course for him the highlight was the long sandy beach, which we had virtually to ourselves. Highlights for us were Bridgwater Bay with its seaside café, Port Fairy, and Portland which is 10 minutes down the road. We left refreshed and with lots of fond memories.
