This cosy self-contained cottage sleeps 2, 3 or 4 people, with full country breakfast provisions (OJ, fruit, cereal, yoghurt, eggs, bacon, toast, teas & coffees) for you to prepare at your convenience.
Treat yourself to a short break in the fresh country air of the Yarra Valley, an hour's drive from Melbourne. Relax amid the rolling hills on eight acres of bushland and native gardens. Enjoy an armchair view of the bird life, amble down to the gully to stroll among the tree ferns, or (with luck) catch a glimpse of kangaroos feeding on the neighbouring hillside. A solar-heated swimming pool beckons in the summer weather.
The full-length picture windows of the cottage allow lovely views, come rain or shine. Your self-contained accommodation includes a queen bed in the main bedroom, with two single beds in the second bedroom, and open-plan kitchen/dining/lounge area with split system heating. A complimentary cheese platter awaits your arrival, and the breakfast provisions will satisfy any hearty appetite.
An easy picturesque drive will take you to nearby boutique vineyards and wine cellars (the Yarra Valley is one of the key wine regions in Australia). There are award-winning restaurants and cafes, art galleries and local markets for you to enjoy. Walking trails in the Yarra Ranges National Park beckon. And the world-famous Healesville (Wildlife) Sanctuary and the Yarra Glen Chocolaterie are on many bucket lists.
A day's outing can take you to the many villages in the Dandenong Ranges or through the awesome mountain-ash trees of the Black Spur, on the way to the waterfalls of Marysville.
Your hosts can easily suggest a week's activities. Or you may wish to relax and unwind after touring elsewhere. Either way, in the foothills of the Great Dividing Ranges, the Yarra Valley will not disappoint.TripAdvisor property ID 3131829...Read more
