Description

Sleepy Wombat Cottage is a fully self-contained forest retreat, yet is only minutes away from the vibrant village of Warburton. The riverside township bustles with cafe's and quirky shops and is host to a delightful range of festivals from comedy, film, harmony, Nordic and many more.

The romantic spa cottage provides all the cosy comforts for a relaxing getaway. Recline on the sofa in front of a crackling wood fire or sit outside on a balmy summer evening listening to the wildlife or feeding the birds.

For the more active minded the cottage is perfectly located close to the Warburton river walk or a few minutes drive to the rainforest galary and Mount Donna Buang itself. Literally at the bottom of the hill is the locally renowned COG cafe where you can hire bikes to explore the Warburton to Lilydale rail trail. Golf and tennis are also within a stones throw.

Please note: Long 700m, fairly steep & windy gravel driveway, safe for all standard vehicles.

Eco-friendly sustainable environment

We aim to maintain the surrounding forest as a haven for wildlife. The property is fully sustainable for water and uses 100 green electricity. We ask that you respect the environment and minimse your footprint.

The property supports permaculture styled local produce growing and there is a small orchard behind the cottage.

The cottage is not suitable for young children as there is an unfenced dam on the property and in wintertime the wood fire is a risk to small fingers. Babies may however be accommodated and a port-a-cot is available on request.

A few home comforts

The cupboards are well stocked with a selection of teas, coffee & coffee pod machine and cooking condiments. Milk will be in the fridge for your arrival.

Stay 2 nights or more and provisions for a cooked breakfast bacon, eggs, beans, juice etc on the first morning of your stay are complimentary.

Ample firewood is available to top up the basket should you need it for the wood fire or outside brazier during winter stays.

Picnic basket and rug are ready for you to take on your outings.

Deciding on activities is made easy with information on local attractions, maps, menus, bike hire, tours and event calendar available.

Torches are also on hand for night-time possum or koala spotting or to guide you up the track from a night out in the village.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to Find This Place! Sleepy Wombat Cottage is perfect for those that seek absolute privacy and romantic seclusion, surrounded by tall eucalyptus trees and native bush, and not a soul in sight except for the owner's house quite a distance away further up the hill. What is also spectacular about this property is the stunning view of the Warburton native forest on the other side of the town. How often do you look at photos of accommodation only to find in reality it is not ideally situated for peace and quiet or at odds with the description provided. We adored the kookaburra song in the morning and occasionally throughout the day, the two kookaburras who visited and showed themselves regularly, colourful crimson rosellas coming in at any time during the day to the bird feeder, the wallaby leaping through the property on our drive down the hill, and the cleanliness of the air in our lungs. The seating outside the front door is relaxing and scenic, perfect for outdoor eating, enjoying a glass of wine, or just afternoon coffee and cake from the bakery in town. Inside the cottage it has everything you need including a modern bathroom and good sized spa bath using untreated natural water, with comfy robes provided. The lounge seating is comfortable (this is often lacking in holiday homes), and plenty of DVDs and CDs if you don't see anything on TV you like. Generous breakfast provisions on our second day with the best free range chook eggs and orange juice I have ever tasted. The loft bedroom upstairs is restful and at first I was a bit hesitant at the slat style bed, but it turned out to be super comfortable and hey no sore back after two nights. One feature we liked too was the screened windows for fresh air (again this isn't always available in holiday homes). The location is a long driveway uphill into the bush on the right hand side of the town as you drive into the main street. Hazel the owner was super helpful, communicative and patient with our queries. There are not many places we would come back to as we like holidaying in new exciting areas, but Sleepy Wombat is on the revisit list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very relaxing getaway! Nice quiet spot, surrounded by beautiful bushland. House has everything you need for a short getaway. Very relaxing night away, thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bush Land Retreat We really needed to destress and Sleepy Wombat was the perfect spot. Outside we were surrounded by beautiful bush land full of all sorts of birds and wildlife. The seating on the porch was perfect to sit and enjoy all this, including a rocking chair. Inside everything was so cosy and comfortable. The fire was roaring when we arrived with plenty of wood provided to last the whole stay. The bathroom had a great spa and many candles to continue the relaxing process. In the kitchen basics were provided and provisions for a very yummy breakfast. I highly recommend a stay in this delightful cottage.
