CLARENDON COTTAGES - NOT FAR FROM MELBOURNE, VERY CLOSE TO PERFECT! This garden retreat in the Dandenong Ranges is ideal for those who love quality, self-contained B&B accommodation. You will enjoy the privacy of your own cottage, the seclusion of our 2 acre property and the abundance of the local wildlife. You can walk the trails in Sherbrooke Forest or hike the 1000 Kokoda steps. Our boutique accommodation consists of 2 charming one-bedroom cottages and a two-bedroom cottage in a peaceful and romantic setting. Gas log fires, spas, fully equipped kitchens and private decks are just some of the many features. We are easy walking distance to Sassafras Village, the home of the famous Miss Marples Tearoom. You can visit many great gardens of Victoria or ride the legendary 'Puffing Billy' steam train in Belgrave. The Dandenongs are also home to a great number of restaurants, cafes and tearooms. Only a 65 minute drive from the Melbourne Airport and 50 minutes from the Melbourne CBD.

Property's Favourite Review
We loved our stay at the Stable Cottage. The room was immaculate, the food was plentiful and great quality. Clarendon Cottages is located in a beautiful part of the Dandenong Ranges. Walking distance to the Alfred Nicholas Gardens and Sassafras Village. It’s a short drive to restaurants, cafes and other lovely attractions such as the Olinda Botanical Gardens. The hosts are great to deal with. I highly recommend this accommodation.

My favourite stay ever! Will definitely be back, we had an amazing time. The cottage was absolutely gorgeous and very little detail was thought out. You could walk to the Nicholas park which was absolutely stunning. Thank you for an amazing weekend

The perfect place to celebrate a special birthday and enjoy exploring the beautiful Dandenong Ranges National Park. Our cottage was warm, comfortable, well appointed and inviting. The local birds gathered to greet us on arrival and we loved the garden setting around our cottage. The massive mountain ash trees and lush tree ferns made for a delightful walk in the bush and we were thrilled to see a lyrebird close up and get the best photos we could have wished for. Back at our cottage we were able to relax in the Spa bath, enjoy our Prosecco and later be chauffeured by our friendly host to a local restaurant. Our morning was relaxing with an 11am checkout and an amazing array of options for our breakfast. Highly recommended.
