Clean and bright cottage with beautiful gardens and wildlife. Comfortable beds, and a hot shower. Plenty to see and do in local town Maldon as well as surrounding towns. Highly recommended. Well worth a stay.

HomeAway from home

  • 5 of 5

We had the most pleasant stay at the Miners Cottage. It was inviting and enticing at the same time. Our hosts Gayle and Alister made sure the place was warm on our arrival, with plenty of wood available for the fire. We were given a quick rundown on places to eat and things to do during our stay, which was very helpful.

The cottage is amazing. Beautifully decorated, but at the same time so homely. We spent far more time than we'd anticipated indoors simply because it was so comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to whip up some fantastic meals and every need was catered for.

The cottage is located within walking distance to shops, but still remains on the edge of the bush. We were excited to see a mob of roos grazing close to the back gate in the mornings. You can get there via the bush route or the road and a great day was spent walking to all the historical places of interest.

A perfect base for our weekend in Maldon and one we will definitely return to.

Excellent hospitality. We arrived at the house on a cold afternoon to find the fire place going and heater on. House was cosy and made for a nice weekend getaway.
