Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just for dogs, honest. Marketed for folks with dogs, but we two humans went along on our own and stayed in the smaller cottage and had a fine old time. We did put the rug outside mind, as that's where I assume our canine friends spend their time while not romping around the property. Nice cottage, very quite, well fitted, clean with wooden floors. Just a very short drive into Dayelsford etc. (you can't really walk). Cooking facilities in the small cottage were not great, but we managed to whip up nachos one night, then just went for a bought pasta sauce the next to avoid the hassle. Ate out for other meals; the cafe in the botanical gardens is worth a look. We spent a weekend bush walking and tootling around Dayelsford and would have loved to stay longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful, comfortable little cottage Stoney is a really pretty, little, cottage. Hollow Log Estate is in a lovely peaceful area that is choc-full of wildlife including kangaroos and a wide variety of native birds. So it is a really peaceful and truly picturesque place to stay. We arrived to a roaring fire, a bottle of wine, dog treats and farm-fresh breakfast provisions. Ali and Lisa had thought of every detail including a torchlight, umbrella and doggy-waste bags, which certainly come-in handy during the compulsory on-lead trips to toilet my dog after-dark. However, you can’t really begrudge them the on-lead rule when it means that kangaroos, wrens, and other precious animals come right up to the cottage. Anyway, they do have an off-lead exercise area, that my dog absolutely loved and used several times a day. If the off lead area was somehow directly accessible from the cottage it would have been perfect, but that really is only a very small detail. The only other slight negative was the slightly old-fashioned and clunky bench-top oven/stove. It was slow and a bit frustrating to use, but it worked eventually. Just allow yourself a bit of extra time if you plan on cooking your own meals while you stay at the Stoney. However, the generosity of Ali and Lisa, the comfort and cleanliness and meeting Lucky (the orphaned lamb) more than made up for those minor issues. I can certainly see myself visiting Hollow-Log Estate again.
