Paul was a very friendly & helpful host, the camp fire and the fire place were prepped and ready to go, Paul met us on arrival to show us around and give us the run down on the facilities. We found the cottage a perfect place to relax and enjoy the open fire, there is LED lighting in the cottage along with gas & oil lanterns. Paul checked in on us during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. You are only a short distance from Chewton & Castlemaine, we rode the mountain bikes into Castlemaine along the well marked bush tracks, had lunch at the old theater and leisurely made our way back before heading to the Red Hill Hotel for a meal and some live entertainment. Would highly recommend a stay her and we will return in the near future.
Thank you Paul for a great weekend
Regards
Tony & Sandy

We loved the Beautiful rustic cabin with the fire place that was warm and cosy on the cold nights. Eco toilet and a hot shower makes camping all that more comfortable. We really enjoyed the quiet private setting of the cabin and camping. Not far from Castlemaine where we enjoyed the local markets, brewery and the mill. We will be back for another quiet weekend away hopefully soon. Thanks for having us Paul, see you next time 😊

This place was the best hipcamp property yet for us. Tucked away enough that it made U feel like you were miles away from anywhere and the cottage was the cutest thing ever. A must if your in the area. Thanks to Paul. Very friendly on arrival but then wouldn't of even known he was around. Thanks again Paul.
