We booked Jame’s yurt at Ballandean. When we arrived we were very disappointed. The yurt overlooked the highway. The grounds were terrible. Also no one was at the site. I rang the number 6 times which went straight to voicemail. When James did call back we were told he had double booked. With no apology or any help to find other accommodation. This time of year the area is booked solid. Luckily we found Wisteria Cottages. The lady was fantastic. These cottages were warm overlooking a paddock with kangaroos and dairy cows. In the end all things worked out for the best.

We stayed at James’ farmhouse at the end of September for 5 nights. There was plenty of room for our party of 4 couples. 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets, a very large sitting room with log fire, and a separate dining room and well equipped kitchen. Outside is a barbecue and seating area with great views of the surrounding countryside and wildlife. The property is a fifteen minute drive to Stanthorpe where there are shops aplenty, and a short drive to lots and lots of very good wineries, cheese makers, and a local microbrewery. The owners not only have the farmhouse, they’ve got a couple of Yurts to rent too. We’ll certainly be going back on our next visit to Australia.

We booked the cottage for a weekend with our toddler . The place was cosy , clean and well presented. The bed was comfy and clean linen and towels were provided. It's ideal for couples but can accommodate a small child . We carried extra bedding for our daughter . There was plenty of firewood provided kept us warm . It was conveniently located to the places we wanted to visit . The kitchen had all the essentials for whipping up a meal , there was no oven . We enjoyed it and would totally recommend.

For the 2nd year running we rented this beautiful old quirky farmhouse. There were 11 of us. We never felt like we were in rented digs and all had space to ourselves. All the charms of grandmas house. Piano in the family room, fireplaces in family and dining, a fully equipped kitchen and a couple of bathrooms and kangaroos and bunnies hopping around the back lawn. You can feel the love of family this farm house has shared over the decades.

8 of us stayed and had a Christmas in July weekend - everything you could need was in the kitchen. Plenty of room, fireplaces kept the house nice and warm. Large lounge room for relaxing - dinner table sat 8 of us very easily. Fireplace also in dining room which was great.

Eleven of us had a great five nights here. We found the accommodation to be very adequate for all of us. The two bathrooms worked well as one of us needed a shower that she could just step into, it would work well as a shower for a disabled person.We found that the fire-places in the living room and dining room created a cosy warm and relaxing environment too seat and enjoy a glass or two of locally bought red wine. We received an added bonus when it snowed during the last night of our stay. We enjoyed visiting the local wineries and having meals at some great restaurants.

The quirky farmhouse housed four couples very comfortably and in fact we could of brought all our children too. There are beds, bathrooms, lounges, plates, cutlery, platters linen to cater for a crowd. Very clean! Good fireplaces with wood cut. Don't expect five star but certainly a fun place to be.

Six girlfriends in their 60's just had a brilliant three nights stay here. Heaps of room, quirky surrounds with the best fires indoors. Wonderful kitchen to chat in the mornings and great dining room where we had fun times over wine and dinner. everything needed for a good time was here and the beds were so comfy Close to all the wineries and national park.

We stayed here with our 6 month old daughter in the Rose Cottage. This accommodation would suit a couple, however with a baby it did feel cramped. The accommodation was clean and was well catered. However, of concern is the fact the SMOKE ALARM DID NOT WORK AND THE FIRE EXTINGUISHER IS OUT OF DATE BY 14 YEARS!!!! The couch also needs replacing as one of the legs is broken! The gas stove was modern and the kitchen well stocked with utensils and modern white goods. The accommodation is in a perfect location to the amazing Ballandean Estate and Barrell Room restaurant, Girraween National Park and close proximity to Stanthorpe. We were annoyed that for such basic accommodation, the price was comparable with other options in the area that appeared to present with better facilities. We were fortunate there were no other guests at the farmhouse so we had the place to ourselves, as both properties are right next to each other which would impact on privacy. The fireplace was clean and although there was a heater provided, it was too small to provide any necessary warmth. I found James difficult to deal with (communication was via email) and he only confirmed and provided receipt of payment after I asked.
