We spent 2 nights in this gorgeous little cottage which had some nice little touches. Loved the Nespresso and the spa bath was great. Soaps and bubble bath supplied were just beautiful and it was great to have bath robes too. Knowing that this cottage is pet friendly, we will definitely bring our furbaby Oscar next time. We were expecting a bottle of local wine and choccies for our 2 night stay which were not supplied but maybe that is for Saturday and Sunday night stays only? All in all, a quaint romantic cottage getaway.

“A welcoming cottage in peaceful surroundings.”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Astley Cottage. It was set in beautiful garden surroundings with jonquils everywhere. The cottage was so clean, well-equipped and comfortable especially with the cosy wood fire. A lovely place to just relax, enjoy a glass of wine and read a good book. Our two small terrier dogs had a wonderful time too and enjoyed the walks through Doctors Gully which was accessible just metres from the cottage.

“Romantic private getaway”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We loved staying in the beautifully decorated and clean spa cottage. Although we were initially worried about how cold it might be at night the wood fire worked a treat and there is also other heating available. Good selection of magazines and DVDs is available. A very peaceful, relaxing spot. We look forward to returning in the future.

“A great relaxing break”
Reviewed August 9, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Astley cottage was great for a quiet relaxing break, it was clean, well maintained and had everything we needed, including the wood fire, which is a favorite of ours. It was cozy for a night in, but we had easy access to both Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. Recommended.

“Romantic, Relaxing, and Wonderfully Equiped”
Reviewed May 24, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our stay at Astley Cottage was just wonderful. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing, romantic getaway - then Astley is perfect for you. The fireplace really added to the cosiness, the spa was a fantastic bonus and the bedroom was clean and very comfortable. Ellie really goes out of her way to ensure the cottage is equipped with literally everything you need - including cooking appliances, bathroom essentials and even small things like DVDs to watch and wood for the fire. The cottage is situated in amongst beautiful greenery and really makes you feel as though you are a long way away from the hustle and bustle - whilst still being in close proximity to everything you need on the main road of Dayelesford. Definitely will be returning, don't have a bad word to say about it other than not staying long enough!
