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!

My husband and I loved our stay at Clarendon Cottages. We stayed in Camelia Cottage which was beautiful and very spacious for two people. Our hosts, Chris and Gayle, were very friendly and helpful. The cottages are set in a great location, a tranquil picturesque area close to cafes, restaurants and local attractions. The fresh produce we received for breakfast...

Wonderful relaxing stay in the Dandenongs. Our hosts were helpful and welcoming. The cottage was fantastic, perfect for unwinding even with a little girl. The fresh breakfast and amenities-superb! Would definitely recommend to all people and come back again to enjoy the area and ambience. Amazing local cafes and stores of interest to visit

Gayle and Cris were wonderful, nice and attentive hosts, the cottage was beautifully furnished and definitely decorated with love and an eye for detail - we didn't lack any comfort whatsoever. The garden view is stunning and the whole scenery is amazing, a truly relaxing atmosphere. Thanks cris and Gayle for a wonderful stay!

So happy you enjoyed your stay in the Dovecote Cottage Mia and appreciated the little details that we are always working on to delight our guests. The garden is great isn't it? Whenever we get a chance we relax on the couch over breakky or a cuppa and soak up the views and watch the rosellas feeding. Thanks for taking...

Our stay was just perfect. Wish we could have stayed more than just the one night. the location was tucked away in a bush garden, so peaceful. Though just a short trip from home it felt like being far away.

A lovely, comfortable and well equipped cottage in a quiet location. Our hosts were most welcoming and pointed us at the nearby beautiful Cloudehill Garden, which was the highlight of our trip to the Dandenong ranges. The ingredients for breakfast, provided in the cottage, were extremely generous and fed us for two days! We would definitely choose Clarendon Cottages again.

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
