We wanted a place where we could simply relax and chill out for a few days and Chestnut Hill Cottage fit all the criteria. Simply looking out the large windows to a view of bare chestnut trees and gardens with the opposite valley in the distant was calming and by the time we left we had unwound so much we didn't want to leave.
The house has all the amenities you need and is kept very clean and ordered. The gardens are well maintained, really lovely, the lawns mowed, you can feel that the cottage and acreage are much loved. There is stacks of firewood and the fireplace heated up the living room nicely and the bath was a nice added touch.
Communication with Silvano and Mary - the owners - was prompt and very courteous. Fresh flowers were left in vases in the each of the bedrooms and on the dining table which made us feel very welcomed. There's no need to look for another place when we go to Balingup again, Chestnut Hill Cottage is it for us.
This quaint cottage is walking distance to the beautiful little township of Balingup which is located in the best part of the south west in my opinion.Cottage has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay.Amazing views especially looking out of the huge windows.Surrounding gardens are a joy to walk around and appreciate.As we love to photo birds it kept us busy and forget about the stress of city living.Blue wrens at the back door every morning...just beautiful..!!Would have liked to stay longer and will definitely stay again...perfect spot..!!!
This is the third time we have stayed at this beautiful holiday cottage. My son looks forward to returning every year. The morning view through the living area windows overlooking the hills with the mist slowly disappearing is magical. The cottage is fully equipped and you could want for nothing. We walk through the door and instantly we feel the stress of the city just melt away. Silvano and Mary (the owners) go out of their way to make your stay the best possible. We will definitely be returning again next year and the year after....
