Genuinely pet friendly
Comfortable and genuinely pet friendly. Our whole family enjoyed our stay.
Thanks for your review. We're so glad you enjoyed your break.
Perfect in every way!
Our family of three people and two dogs had a wonderful weeks holiday at Hollow Log Estate. We stayed in the cottage which is so beautifully decorated and the perfect size for us with everything we could possible need to relax and enjoy our stay. Ali and Lisa were so very lovely and nothing was too much trouble. It was very reassuring to have them close by and they were very accomodating when it came to sharing information about their stunning property and all it's residents (both farm animals and wildlife). We all agreed that it was probably the best and most relaxing holiday we've ever had and we are already checking our diaries for when we can go back. The dogs are still sleeping off all the exercise! We recommend it to anyone who wants a genuinely "pet friendly" holiday!
Thank you for your kind review. We're so pleased you enjoyed your week away and that you found the setting as relaxing as hoped. May your next visit come around soon.
A charming cottage in a magical location
Everything about the location, the cottage, the host, is amazing. Absolute doggie heaven as well. I would certainly want to stay there again when Im next in Daylesford.
Thanks for sharing your review with others. We're so pleased that you and your dog enjoyed your stay.
Heaven for doggies...and people too!
Staying at this property was an absolute dream. The environment is beautiful in itself, but you can really see how much care is taken to make sure it is incredibly welcoming and easy to navigate for guests. We fell in love with the gorgeous cottage and the breakfast hamper was absolutely delicious. Most important though was how our stay really felt inclusive of our pup Arnold. From a warm welcome with Ali when we arrived to the sweet touch of doggy treats and fresh water inside the cottage and on the balcony, we really felt like the holiday was as exciting for him as it was for us! Not to mention he was ready and waiting to explore the doggy play and dam area at every opportunity!
Our stay was just perfect and we highly recommend to humans and doggies alike! We can't wait to get back to this little slice of heaven, very soon!
Thanks for your generous review. We're so glad you and your pup Arnold enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again in the future.
Perfect Place for Pooches
Hollow Log Cottage is located in a lovely, relaxed rural setting, 5 minutes drive to Daylesford. The cottage is very clean and comfortable. The hosts, Ali and Lisa, are most welcoming, and you will feels very at home. Most importantly, Hollow Log is "Dog Paradise"
Thanks for your review. We're so pleased you and your dogs enjoyed your stay.
a wonderful escape for you & your four legged friends
the first thing that strikes you on arriving is how beautifully maintained the grounds are- and this extends to inside the cottage where all the comforts of home awaited us. We especially appreciated a hamper of goodies for breakfast which we turned to a great scrambled eggs on sourdough meal with side of steamed asparagus & country ripe tomatoes Be mindful that one of the cottages is a weatherboard cottage & the nights in late winter can get very chilly. We relied heavily on the reverse cycle heating to warm the place as the log fire was only effective up close
Our 2 dogs just loved the dog play area chasing each other & retrieving the ball. Then they would stare at the big black cows & the sheep wondering who these exotic creatures were! We could safely leave them in the enclosure on their own while we read the papers
Ali is a consummate host & is meticulous in the way she looks after the property & is so helpful with any enquiries
We will definitely return- next time in the summer
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, and for your kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay.
I wish you'd mentioned the fire to me as I may have been able to provide some advice. Most guests find it makes the Cottage very cosy in winter, but at least you had the new split system as back up.
We look forward to welcoming you again one day.
