Find it very hard to think of any negatives. Lots of positives: excellent hosts, gorgeous well kept cottages and surroundings, private but close to all that you’d want to do, yummy breakfast goodies. Will definitely be back.

Recently we enjoyed 2 delightful nights at Clarendon Cottages. We stayed in the smallest called Dovecote Cottage is was compact but very suitable for our requirements. Everything was top notch. Excellent goodies for breakfast and beautiful biscuits for us to enjoy with a cuppa also port and chocolates. The bed was very comfortable and nice spacious bathroom with quality towels. It was very chilly during our stay and we had an electric fire upstairs and downstairs. We were attending a family wedding in the area and as it happens we stayed where the bridal party stayed which enhanced our stay. Beautiful gardens and lots a birds visit the garden which we enjoyed seeing. Look forward to returning one day.
Thank Susan S

little cottage with a spa bath and sunken lower kitchen from the lounge
just lovely and private
host was accommodating and understanding
everything was supplied for breakfast and more
bit of a hassle as out of the way to get there from main road,
but you would expect that being in the mountains - i'm an experienced traveller
so you have to not expect everything to be perfect

Thanks for your review Ian. Yes we are tucked away just off the main tourist road and behind another property which makes Clarendon a very peaceful and tranquil location. We are only 1km from Sassafras and only 5 minutes walk from King Henry Arts Café, the Sassafras Tavern and Sherbrooke Forest so our guests find the location just perfect. Regards, Chris and Gayle

What a great surprise ..... our hosts thought of every detail to make our stay as lovely as possible. Toiletries in the bathroom - right down to bath salts. Fully equiped kitchen with full English breakfast goodies in the fridge and fresh fruit and juice. Just when you think it can't get any better you find a supply of the finer things in life such as Tawny Port, dried fruit, nuts and chocolates. Despite the 3 degrees outside, the fireplace kept us very warm. Highly recommend this place for a couple get away place !! We will definitely be back again and again ..... thank you Chris for putting in the effort to make it so pleasurable for your guests.

Description
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 More 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. Less
