Donnington Cottage is as good as it gets - completely surrounded by wildlife & natural beauty, we felt like it was just us & nature! A great spot to keep warm & dry while watching the storms roll in + also as a base to explore the National Park. Loved the special treats from the host, piping hot shower, coffee machine & full kitchen set up. We will absolutely return & highly recommend!

WOW, thank you for your amazing review! It means the world to us to read your thoughtful comments and we would have to agree Donington Cottage is as good as it gets! The beauty of staying at Donington Cottage is the wide open space, completely surrounded by nature, wildlife and a stone's throw away from the beach! It's a private location, secluded and all yours, which makes it easy to switch off and relax! We are thrilled you enjoyed your Winter escape, it's a beautiful time of the year, with everything so green and lush and a chance to watch the storms roll in as mentioned. The Lincoln National Park has a lot to offer for those willing to venture out and explore....which we encourage! Very pleased you enjoyed the added, special treats, we love spoiling our guests! Thank you once again for choosing to stay at Donington Cottage and we can't wait for you to return and see some fresh new changes inside the cottage! Warm regards, Georgie

We have had some stunning Winter weather right here on the Eyre Peninsula and we have to agree the ideal time for a short getway and yes, our campfire has proven very popular! Thank you for choosing to stay at Donington Cottage and taking the time to write a review. Warmest regards, Georgie
