Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once again a wonderful stay This was our second visit to the cottage & it was just as good as our first. We were greeted with some sweet goodies on arrival which the kids loved. Also on this visit I loved the addition of the heating unit in the lounge which made the stay extra cosy and warm. We would not hesitate to return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful stay Loved the location, very peaceful, great views, it was nice having all that land for the kids to roam amongst the wildlife. Everything you needed was there even when it came to the small personal touches such as a small perfume for use in the bathroom. Would love to come again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier Had a wonderful 3 night stay at Austracantha. Cottage was beautifully presented, clean and modern but oh so cosy snuggled in front of the wood fire. Great location, very restful but only a short drive to Mansfield. Kangaroos on the back lawn, deer out the front and plenty of bird life. Even had a little snow to cap off a perfect weekend away.
