Hazelwood Cottage is a charming 2 storey farmhouse providing self contained accommodation and is well-equipped with most things you would find in your own house, to give you a comfortable and relaxed holiday. It is designed and equipped for people with disabilities including those who need high care, but is also a wonderful place for small groups, families or couples to share a holiday.

Downstairs there are 5 bedrooms which sleep 11, including a set of bunks, 5 single beds 4 are hospital-type and adjustable - one being hi-lo type and 2 double beds. Three cots are available and 2 highchairs.There are 3 bathrooms downstairs, one with a small bath and a separate toilet in the laundry. Upstairs in 2 rooms are 3 single beds and a double bed with a shared ensuite. The comfortable beds are provided with pillows, woollen blankets and down/feather-filled doonas. Some electric blankets are available, as well as hot water bottles and heat bags. Linen and towels can be hired with the option of visitors making up the beds themselves or having the beds made up for an extra charge.

The kitchen is large and well equipped with a full range of utensils, large oven and dishwasher, and a beautiful view of the distant mountains. It opens into the dining/ living area with large dining table, lounge chairs and couches where holiday-makers can relax and enjoy the Yarra Valley views, or sit around the cosy wood fire. The house is also equipped with a reverse cycle air conditioner and some fans and extra heaters. In summer the house is also cooled by the shade from century-old English trees.

Outside there are balconies and verandahs to sit on, overlooking the garden containing huge old rhododendrons and azaleas, waratahs and proteas. The abundant bird life provides much enjoyment as do our friendly farm animals. A barbeque is provided on the front verandah.

Because we are in the shadow of Mt Victoria there is no TV reception at Hazelwood Cottage but a DVD player and DVDs are provided. There are also board games, books and our pianola is particularly popular. Attached to the house is a large wired-in recreation room containing toys and a table-tennis table. The room also doubles as a fly-free eating area in summer.

For people with disabilities the house has many attributes to make for an enjoyable stress-free holiday. Doors are wide, the downstairs area and garden can be accessed without the need for steps, bathrooms have rails, raised toilets, stepless showers with wall seats, large over-hang on the dining room table for wheelchairs, 4 adjustable hospital beds some with rails and monkey bars, much of the garden is accessible including a 110 metre long asphalt path meandering through a variety of trees and flowering shrubs. Also great for children with bikes There is a separate small shed filled with aids which people are free to use, including a hoist, BYO sling wheel chair and walking frame.

The large informal garden provides a wonderful place to wander or sit and a fantastic play area for children to make cubbies or run around and explore. Beyond the garden are walks into the forest, leading to fern gullies and more wonderful views from the top of the property. The walk leads past our two spring-fed dams which supply us with an abundant supply of spring water and mean that throughout summer our garden and lawns can be kept lush and green. A gate at the top of the property gives access to the Yarra Ranges National Park and the O'Shannassy Aqueduct Trail - great for bike riding and longer walks.

The scenic township of Warburton set on the Yarra River is 6 kilometres away. It has an interesting selection of shops and restaurants and coffee shops, bike hire, an Eco Display and information centre, Upper Yarra Arts Centre gallery and films tennis courts, superb golf course and a medical clinic with 24-hour phone contact available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Property We have just come home after spending four days in this lovely homely property, we hand fed the kookaburras, and also fed the king parrots and rosellas, even though it is winter, the home was lovely and warm with a wood fire and a split system, the home is equipped with all the necessities, as well as games for all ages, we even played the pianola which was very special. We walked through the ferny property and up through the hills. We will visit this property again in the future, many thanks to our hosts who made our stay so pleasurable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent disabled property It is very hard to find a property that is true to its claim that it is wheelchair friendly. But this property was just that. There were few niggly bits that didnt work with my wheelchair but i feel like that is a preference thing rather than a it doesnt work thing like the thick mats to wipe your feet on where a little annoying to manoeuvre over in my chair and the microwave was up high enough that i could only reach to put something in it and hope that it ended at the same spot but as i said those are just my personal feelings and fiercely want to be independent. I do have to say however that if someone had a electric wheelchair or a wheelchair wider than mine which is relatively wide that they may not get through one or two of the doorways because it was a tight squeeze for me. The screened in back room was amazing as we actually slept out there the whole time because of the heat and it was a fun adventure to do so. Overal a wonderful and amazing property one of the only ones ive stayed in so far that i feel like i could happily live there.
