Cricklewood is a self-contained cottage located in a private setting at the end of the village of Archies Creek, a short drive to some of Victoria's most spectacular coastline. The nearest beach is just five minutes' drive away and you'll be in Phillip Island or Inverloch within 20 minutes.

Ideal for couples or small groups looking for either an active or restful stay. Relax in the spa, gaze on the gorgeous rural views, watching cows from the comfort of the lounge in front of the fire or laze upon the hammock on the huge back deck. Alternatively just lie on the beach and soak up some rays. If you're feeling energetic, there are some great local walks or rides - along the coast between Kilcunda and San Remo or the Bass Coast Rail Trail. Or visit the many local markets and wineries.

If you don't want to eat on the deck, why not try one of the locals - including the Old Dalyston Deli, the Killy (Kilcunda) Pub, the Killy Cafe and the Ozone Hotel in Dalyston. The Royal Mail at Archies Creek is a quirky local pub and only a 3 minute walk away - so you don't have to worry about having that extra glass!

Just 90 minutes from Melbourne's CBD, Cricklewood is the ideal getaway for up to 4 holidaymakers.

Please note that it is not suitable for children under 5.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A beautiful outlook - otherwise very disappointing Arrived as requested at 3 pm. Rubbish bins overflowing near front door, not emptied until 3 nights later. Dirty, wet linen from previous guests littered the washing machine and floor in bathroom. Kitchen benches - areas of dry spillage not cleaned. Badly in need of a good vacuum under beds in 2nd bedroom, also under living room couches which were also crumpled, stained, and with old crumbs between and under cushions. Living room floor sticky underfoot. Shower over spa - overflow apparently somehow linked to septic system. Water backed up in spa base, wouldn't drain during first shower on first night. Message left on owner's mobile but no response during 4 night stay. Blockage took ages to clear - until I fished out old accumulated hair from the plug hole. Same thing again another night - this time not only clumps of hair but also tissue (toilet paper?) was found in accumulated debris from the plug hole. Unbelievable. Dyson upright vacuum - no instructions for fitting attachments. Gave up for fear of breaking this strange appliance. Perhaps other guests did same. In my opinion definitely not clean enough or good value. I did not appreciate cleaning up after others. I left the place far cleaner than I found it. Owners need to be more responsive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rustic, serene property. Cricklewood was the perfect place for my two day birthday getaway. Rustic, cosy cottage with lots of character set in a charming village.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant wait to rebook What a little find. Placed beautifully in an historic area well worth exploring but also only a minutes walk or drive from a wee pub and a happy hubby fishing area. We are a couple in our 50's who travel a lot and all needs exceeded. Also a fabulous place for kids. Very safe, beautiful gardens and views. Highly recommended from by somebody who has been in the hotel /hospitality industry for 30+ years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely place to stay! Cricklewood is a perfect base for exploring the countryside and nearby coast, or a cosy hideout where you can catch up on books, DVDs, songwriting, sketching... or just general relaxation!
