Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a lovely place! We brought our 2 children and dog to with Poppy and Jake and had such a lovely time. Ww loved the rustic feel of the cottage, with all the nostalgia for the adults, and books and toys for the kids, we were right at home. The cottage was clean and tidy, a little cluttered once our bags were inside (but you expect that as 'cottage' implies a small space). Beautiful countryside, immaculate attention to details like the hazelnut coffee and anzac biscuits provided in the picnic box, and the wonderful cooked breakfast and fresh fruit salad all made it a real hit. Our older child loves animals, so the geese, chickens, dogs and pony were her favourite thing. And our little boy and dog loved the fresh mown grass to run around a stretch their legs (driving Sydney to north of Brisbane). It was a shame ours was only an overnight stay, an extra night or two would have been enjoyable to explore the surrounding area. Thankyou Poppy and Jake, we all felt thoroughly welcomed!
