Brook Cottage is a 7-acre property located in a secluded valley adjoining Williewa Creek and the town common. The Town Common is a 650-hectare reserve complete with picnic grounds and bush walking tracks.

There is an abundance of wildlife in and around the property. King Parrots, Crimson Rosellas, Kangaroos, Possums and the wandering town common horses are frequent visitors. The two resident alpacas Llamahl and baby alpaca Quilo love to be handfed. The adopted kids! (goats) Pablo and Freda are curious and enjoy entertaining you with their goaty antics ;-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Escape The house is very comfortable and in a really beautiful area. There are lots of different rooms for guests to do their own thing or plenty of room to hang out together, we liked it best on the deck and in the kitchen. Having a huge oven made cooking for a bigger group much easier too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very cool house set in a glorious landscape We loved our three nights at Brook Cottage. The house is very comfortable and has plenty of room - we were four adults, three children and one dog, and the house accommodated us all easily. The kids loved the treehouse and the alpacas and goats. We went for walks in the Portland Town Common and a trip to the playground in Lithgow, but mostly we just hung out at the house, sitting on the deck playing board games, drawing and painting, talking, and enjoying the view - not to mention the occasional free-roaming horse running past on the road. The house is decorated with cool paintings and mosaics, has a gorgeous garden, and its original verandah has been enclosed to make a cozy sunroom. The kitchen is well equipped with a big stove, fridge and dishwasher - great for cooking big meals. We are already plotting our return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great! we stayed 2 nights over the weekend for the Glow Worm Marathon in nearby Wolgan Valley. the cottage was very clean and nothing was old and dusty! it was well-equipped with everything we could have needed and there was plenty of wood for the log fires. our dogs had a fabulous time getting to know the alpacas and going on walks around the area. wish we could have stayed longer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed loved the art works and the design of the cottage, however we could enjoy our stay even more if every thing wasn't old and dusty. It seems the property has been abanded. Ragged cushions, worn off beddings and sofa, spiders and flies inside(no window screen), smelly bathroom (as we walked in), rusty and broken outdoor furniture and messy gurden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional property and wonderful for children Brook Cottage is an amazing spot. Our children absolutely adored the treehouse (has to be seen to be believed), the horses and the alpaca's as well as the great sandpit, swing and evening strolls through the nearby area. We were able to sit on the deck watching the kangaroos while the children played happily. Absolutely gorgeous spot and is well worth a visit. The cottage itself is beautiful and has lovely artwork throughout; we'll definitely be heading back there.
