We loved our Easter visit to Banksia Cottage. It was a lovely place to spend a few days...including some time in front of the fire on a cool and wet weekend! The home had everything we needed, and the garden is beautiful. The location is great - we walked into the centre of town a few times, and there are some great streets to explore nearby. Our dog enjoyed every minute too...she felt right at home! Our hosts Ange & Jeff were easy to deal with and always responsive. We'd happily visit again, and would certainly recommend Banksia Cottage.
Banksia cottage is the most beautiful heritage haven that has everything you need for a relaxing break. Lots of really special touches that show how much Ange and Jeff care about making your visit a memorable one - just read the guest book when you get there and check out all of the glowing reports! We particularly loved that we could have our dog with us and that it was cool enough to light the fire. Wonderful hosts!
The delightful Banksia Cottage feels very private amongst the pretty garden plants and hanging baskets. The owners clearly love their gorgeous cottage and have thought of everything you might need for your stay. We especially appreciated the numerous special touches including records, record player, the welcome blackboard with our names on it and the bottle of buubly in the fridge for us! Our dog kept wagging her tail and felt right at home. She loved that she was allowed inside and explored outside where she enjoyed lying in the sun on the grass or sitting with us on the front verandah or back patio where we had most of our meals. It's close enough to walk to the best parks, dog friendly cafes, shops and Cobb + Co Museum, but far enough away to feel secluded and private.
We had our first wedding anniversary in Banksia Cottage. The owners have thought of everything and it felt like stepping back in time to a place where the world was perfect. This is so well kept and clean. It is pet friendly for pet lovers. So close to everything and easy access to all the amazing parks and gardens. In all our years of travel ( now in our early 70's) we have never found a place that was so well catered for. We look forward to our next visit. Many thanks Ange & Jeff
