Beautiful location outside of Mudgee

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Myrtle cottage. Great place for 2 people. Loved all the animals on the property and that we could take our dog. More instructions on how to use cable box would be helpful.

Enjoyed it for what I was looking for

  • 3 of 5

I wanted some time away from Sydney's busy life, traffic and noise. This cottage gave me all of those, it was amazing. The night sky is what I was looking forward to and it was phenomenal, never seen so many stars in the sky because of all the light pollution, even got to see a shooting star. During the day was nice and quiet and just amazing. The cottage was nice and cozy, the reason I've given only three stars is due to the utensils provided. The BBQ was pretty filthy, the cooking utensils had a bit of left over from whoever used it last, the sheets on the bed were fine but the extra blankets provided seems like they haven't been washed in a while.

Overall I enjoyed the stay because of the beautiful scenery, the night sky, and the kangaroos around the property.

Lovely country location.

  • 4 of 5

The overall stay was great. It's nice to be so remote, and be able to bring pets. Shame about the beds in the loft, not sure the foam mattress did my back any good, but other than that, a well kitted out little vacation home not too far from the action.

Great Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect. Clean, well presented cottage. The weather outside was cold but inside it was perfectly warm with the heaters provided and there were plenty of blankets too.

Arriving and leaving was well organised ahead of time (Which was great as there is no phone reception).

Loved it and would go back again next year.
