Within the beautiful grounds of Moulton Park Estate you will find the elegant original Homestead and two characterful cottages; all tastefully decorated for your enjoyment. Snuggle up by the open fires, relax in a deep spa bath and enjoy the true tranquility, romance and privacy that is Moulton Park. Centrally located near the top of The Dandenong Ranges, Moulton Park is within a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from Sassafras, within a 3 minute drive from Olinda, and within 40 minutes of the Yarra Valley wineries. The Homestead is perfect for up to 6 guests with 3 king bedrooms (one bed can split into 2 singles). There are 2 bathrooms, a wonderful kitchen, dining for up to 10, a beautiful lounge with fire and another lounge room with open fire and piano too. Each cottage is fully self contained and private, with an open log fire and spa bath for a truly romantic stay. The entire property is often used for small wedding parties - 3 acres of gardens for photographs - lovely!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Gatehouse cottage is like 2 open arms saying come on in relax and let your worries float away. We arrived to nice ambient music playing the heating was on and all the rooms were warm. The continental breakfast was enough for 2, the rooms were warm cosy and inviting. All in all it is a wonderful place to reconnect and have a romantic few nights away

My partner and I stayed in the Gatehouse at Moulton Park Estate and we absolutely loved our stay. We arrived to lights on and music playing. Everything was just perfect! Comfy bed, lots of homely touches, delicious breakfast basket. Everything was so clean and tidy and very welcoming. The grounds of Moulton Park were so beautiful to explore and we enjoyed lunch in one of the many parts of the garden. The cottage is perfect for a romantic stay with its big spa bath and cosy fireplace. Would definitely recommend and we will definitely be back for another stay!

Staying in the Homestead was absolutely perfect. So many thoughtful details and the home itself is breathtaking! We had two nights over the past weekend with three couples attending a family 60th wedding anniversary and couldn't have asked for a more peaceful, elegant, yet comfortable and homely accommodation. Close to the quaint little villages of Sassafras and Olinda and therefore short drive to fantastic little cafes, shops and tavern. Very impressed! Will not be our last visit.

Daughter and I stayed in the Homestead ant Moulton Park over the long weekend (football long weekend). It was full to bursting in the Dandenongs so it was nice to reach the peace and quiet of this property. Picking up the keys, the lady on duty was not particularly helpful or friendly. For example, you enter the second driveway on the estate not the first. The first driveway is for the two smaller cottages and it is very hard to get out of that drive if you make a mistake going in there. The lady who was on duty on the Sunday when we dropped the keys back (I think she said she use to live at Moulton park) was lovely. The Homestead is a grand and luxurious country estate with lovely grounds. It is a very large home with first class amenities. We found the house a little to cold and had trouble overriding the heating but if you are good at keeping the log fires burning you should be fine. We did find a couple of very cracked wine glasses that had been put back in the cupboard which were a bit dangerous. The WiFi is very patchy. All in all, this is a very luxurious property and would be a great place to hold a wedding or family get-together. There are two smaller properties on the estate which are visible from the Homestead but not too close. Would love to go back one day.

My fiance and I stayed in the gatekeeper cottage as a weekend escape from work and kids. The booking process and key pick up were easy and hassle free. The cottage is located just off the main road on a dead end street, making it central but also very quiet. When we arrived at the cottage the lights and heater were on ready for us to just make ourselves at home. The cottage contains a fully equipped kitchen, a lounge room with gas heating, an open fire place, a tv which has access to Netflix, Stan and free to air tv plus a selection of books, CDs, games and DVDs. The bedroom has a two person spa plus there is a seperate bathroom with a shower. Outside the estate has 3 acres of gardens you can wander through plus a half tennis court which is also available to guests. Included in the price was a continental breakfast which gave us more than enough choices. When asked which part of our trip was his favourite my fiance replied the cottage. It was such a fantastic experience and I'd definitely recommend it to anybody looking for a couples getaway.

We stayed at the Gatehouse Cottage. Beautifully renovated but faithful to its 100 year heritage, we found it to be warm, comfortable, romantic and quiet. It is beautifully styled and generous in its provisions. Every need has been anticipated and catered to. In the middle of winter I expected to be cold but rest assured, this was not the case. The cottage was already warm on arrival because someone had thoughtfully turned on the heater for us. The open fire was delightful and the heated towel rails and separate heater in the bathroom along with a spa bath, ensured we were not going to freeze. I have never left a review before but really felt compelled to do so for this property. We will absolutely be back!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed in the beautiful Homestead for a weekend away. We have previously stayed at this estate and could not resist experiencing this once more! The place is warmed upon arrival and provided everything we needed for a perfect winter weekend; thick, luxurious towels, bathroom products, robes, slippers, fireplace, electric blankets, full kitchen amenities and a very warming atmosphere. We especially enjoyed sleeping in absolute peace and quiet, waking up to singing birds and sharing some bubbles on the deck. We love it because it takes us away from our busy lives, into a relaxing, calm and elegant space to just soak up and unwind. It is also right in the middle of Sassafras town centre where we enjoyed lots of ‘treating ourselves’. We will be back - could not be happier! Thank you again for having us.

We stayed in the gorgeous Gatehouse cottage at Mouton Park. It was quiet and quaint, and was beautifully styled and decorated. It was spacious with a seperate dining area, bedroom with large spa, lounge with open fire, bathroom and kitchen overlooking private English gardens.The continental breakfast basket was such a lovely touch. Thoroughly recommend the Gatehouse at Mouton Park for couples who appreciate period style, luxury accommodation.

I just experienced one of the best weekends away at the gorgeous Moulton Park Estate. We stayed in the Gatehouse cottage and it was just perfect. The open fireplace set a romantic scene as did the huge spa bath. it was meticulously clean and i loved the little treats..beautiful touch. I was proposed to in the garden and had the opportunity to look around the Homestead which took my breath away...total luxury. We love it so much we are considering having our wedding there. I highly recommend this magical place. We will be back
