5/5 Excellent

Cosy cottage
Very attentive host who kindly bought vegan supplies for us. She even offered to look after our greyhound if we wanted to go somewhere that wasn't dog friendly.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely stay. Dee was very friendly and accommodating with our 2 dogs. Place was very cozy and clean, with everything you need. Went to sleep in comfy bed listening to sound of the creek rushing. Fabulous ingredients for breakfast on the morning.

5/5 Excellent

Cosy, comfortable & relaxing
We had a very relaxing stay at Possumbrook Cottage. After travelling around all day it was a cosy haven to come back to. Ruby, our dog, had room to roam outside and was also allowed inside with us. Dee was very a generous host supplying an amazing array of supplies. If we will travel that way again we would look to stay at Possumbrook Cottage again. Many thanks Dee for your hospitality. Richard & Kerrie
