Durham View Cottage is rated 4.7273 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a lovely weekend at Durham View. The key word to describe the cottage and all our communication with the owners was "welcoming". The cottage is relaxed and warm. The extra touches- making sure the heater was on, leaving a couple of snacks and some fresh flowers- were much appreciated. The children felt comfortable and welcome- as did the dog. We have recently stayed at another property where there was a list of rules and jobs to be done (ie strip the beds, close the blinds, towels in the bath). Here there was no such list, the only message seemed to be "relax and enjoy". Close to Ballarat and surrounds, we would definitely visit again. Thank you Ian and Jo for providing a practical, family friendly option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a wonderful stay. Nothing was missing & dealings with the owner were simple & trusting. The place was very clean, cozy & had everything you wanted, i.e. hair dryer, washing machine, electr, blanket heaters ... We would definitely recommend it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Everything we needed. A comfortable house. Took a while to work out how to use the stove. Single beds very small, one had a picnic rug as a blanket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We really enjoyed our stay. A few small issues like leaking kettle and fridge not cold enough but this was being fixed after our stay. We were able to take our pet which was awesome!!! Very friendly, beautiful views, clean and tidy and lovely to have some basic food in the pantry and fridge upon arrival. Very close to Ballarat. Would happily visit again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really well presented property, including a stocked pantry, fresh milk & bread, & well equipped linen cupboard. The fact the owners are on hand and really helpful is just a bonus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved this cottage. It only took 10 minutes on the deck staring over the valley to completely unwind. The owners provide breakfast and went through the extra trouble of providing organic bread and milk (and we said they didn't have to). In the end, a bed is a bed is a bed. But in the guestbook we found many examples where the owners went the extra mile, e.g. especially buying a cot for a family coming with a baby, driving overseas visitors back into Ballarat, providing a Xmas tree + present at Xmas time, providing Easter eggs at Easter etc.It's the little touches like this that make you comfortable and make you enjoy your stay even more.
