My wife and I stayed here for a very relaxing weekend recently. It is about a 10 minute walk to the blue lake. Simon and Jen were really friendly and great to talk to. They even let us borrow some folding chairs to take to a concert. Brekky was good too. Made us feel right at home. Thanks guys.

Loved it, stayed here for 3weeks last February 2016 and was very well looked after, the accommodation was very clean and tidy. Mr Simon Browning also took me sight seeing and I think he would also make a great tourist guide. Thank you for making my stay excellent

My daughter and I spent a perfectly comfortable one night stay in the refurbished "Stable" cottage. Simon was there to greet us warmly to a cottage steeped in charm and comfort, with all the modern convenience, but still with its delightful period character. It was beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and utterly charming. Quiet, cosy, nicely located, everything hit the spot...

Most welcoming house - and landlord! Beautiful furniture, decent sized rooms, great grounds and retreat areas. There are two bathrooms (upstairs & downstairs). There is some dust and the odd cobweb that could be easily removed, and most likely will be after this review. Breakfast was provided and set out for us for an early exit. Most charming place and...

We enjoyed Colwyn Cottage. The cottage has genuine style and character for a house of its era, and clearly was built to provide comfort. The owner can provide you an article from Australian Home Beautiful, in which it won the "The best little home I know" competition in 1928, and is the subject of the article... our bedroom was downstairs,...
