Guest Reviews:

Such a charming house and beautiful countryside location Moments from the village coffee shop which serves yummy treats and a divine backyard which offers a cosy outdoor fireplace which we enjoyed an afternoon red around. We would love to return. Thanks for the memorable weekend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous location The cottage is beautiful and Exeter is a gorgeous location. The garden was lovely too. Our only disappointment was that we requested a cancellation of the roll away bed an extra $40 per night and were told 2 days before it was too late and the cleaner would have already delivered it. There was no roll away bed at the accommodation. We had a death in the family so one person was unable to join us. Very disappointed there was no refund on the roll away when it wasn’t even provided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful property! Poppy Cottage was an amazing place to stay! Every room had so much character with plenty of space. It is just down the road from the centre of Exeter while being very quiet and relaxing. We will definitely be booking this cottage again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful cottage! We had a wonderful stay at Poppy Cottage last month! The house is filled with beautiful pieces of artwork and is perfectly decorated for the Southern Highlands! It was clean, warm and inviting – we will definitely return. We especially loved the open fire place and the comfy seating everywhere! Thanks so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Special property We had a lovely stay at Poppy Cottage. Loved the artworks, luxe interiors and the excellent kitchen. Slept soundly and relaxed. Exeter General Store for great cafe food and best coffee in the district is a mere 20 seconds walk away. Will definitely stay again!
