We had a lovely time staying here, so close to all the little villages. We did the Yarra Valley Chocolatiere, Cheesetasting, Healsville Sanctuary and also the Tree Surfing, We will definitely be back and wont look past staying here again.

Great to hear you enjoyed your stay and managed to get around to many interesting places. Can't beat the Dandenongs and Sassafras is in an ideal spot isn't it! Appreciate your review. Cheers, Chris and Gayle

We escaped the city on a birthday weekend and were completely blown away by Clarendon Cottages. Everything from the decor down to the layout was perfect. Beautiful colours, gorgeous kitchen and an amazing bathroom. Not a detail was missed in the cottage, complimentary port and a cupboard full of games, we really got the chance to relax and unwind next...

Be prepared to be well looked after! Every detail was thought of, from warm fleece gowns to snuggle up on the couch with, chocolates on arrival, DVDs and audio dock, fresh produce for breakfast and a variety of hot drink selections to choose from. Happy to recommend to others without hesitation!

Wonderful location, lovely little villages to visit and delightful little hideaway. The hosts, Chris and Gayle, couldn't be more accommodating or friendly. The cottages and surrounds are lovely. The cottage was beautifully appointed far exceeded our expectations.

We had a lovely stay. The cottage was perfect and close to the shops, but not too close because you can't hear any commuters or public noise what so ever. Making the atmosphere and serenity absolutely stunning. Would recommend to anyone coming up the mountain looking for accommodation.

I couldn't have asked for more. I was in Australia visiting family and decided on a couple of days away from the city. I was on my own, but the cottage was so perfect. The provisions were outstanding and my only complaint is that I couldn't stay longer!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
CLARENDON COTTAGES - NOT FAR FROM MELBOURNE, VERY CLOSE TO PERFECT! This quiet garden retreat in the Dandenong Ranges is ideal for those who love quality, self contained, B&B accommodation and a beautiful setting. You will enjoy the privacy of your own cottage, the seclusion of our two acre property and the abundance of the local wildlife. If you are looking for a little more action there are wonderful walking trails to explore in Sherbrooke Forest and the Yarra Ranges National Park or perhaps challenge your fitness with a hike up the 1000 Kokoda steps at the foot of the mountain.Our boutique guest accommodation in the heart of the Dandenongs consists of two charming 1 bedroom cottages and a two bedroom cottage in a secluded, peaceful and romantic setting. Gas log fires, spas, fully equipped kitchens and private decks are just some of the many features in our Stables & Camellia Cottages. English country gardens and meadow nestle amongst a huge variety of beautiful century old trees. The cottages are within easy walking distance of Sassafras Village, the home of the famous Miss Marples Tearoom (best scones on the mountain) and Sherbrooke Forest where you can see the Lyrebirds wandering happily.In the Dandenongs there are many things to do in the vicinity of Clarendon. Within minutes you can be wandering around the lively and colourful Villages of Sassafras, Olinda & Mt Dandenong or be visiting six out of the eight Great Gardens of Victoria - National Rhododendron Garden, Alfred Nicholas Garden, George Tindale Garden, William Ricketts Sanctuary or Cloudehill Gardens. Just 10 minutes away there's the legendary 'Puffing Billy' steam train in Belgrave, the Kokoda Trail 1000 steps and the Sky High Observatory at the top of Mt Dandenong. Many antique shops house treasures next to contemporary galleries and studios filled with craft, sculpture and decorator items created by the many artists who have made the Dandenongs their home.The Dandenong Ranges is also home to a great number of restaurants, cafes and tearooms like Wild Oak, Miss Marples, King Henry, The Cuckoo, Ranges and Copperfields suiting a wide range of palates and pockets! Tesselaar's Tulip Farm and u-pick berries and cherries are a short drive and the world renowned Yarra Valley Wineries just a 40 minute drive.For our overseas and interstate guests, the Dandenong Ranges is only a 60 minutes' drive from the Melbourne International Airport and 45 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. We invite you to come and enjoy the unique experience of the Bed & Breakfast culture in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges. ... more   less
