My husband took me for the weekend to celebrate my 40th and it was lovey. Very quiet with only the birds to be heard. The occasional horse or kangaroo sighting. Quaint Spa Cottage, Very relaxing with hot muffins delivered daily

We have just spent another 6 days at the beautifully run 'The Grange on Hermitage'. Ken & Chris are such wonderful hosts - always prepared to answer questions and, on request, provide recommendations. The cottages and units are thoughtfully appointed and maintained to a very high standard. Loved every minute of it . . . . especially the homemade muffins...

We had a variety of breakfast items...
