“The perfect place to enjoy our stay at Daylesford”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

From the minute we walked in the door we felt welcome and at home. The decor, facilities were excellent and we felt so comfortable. The view from the balcony, deck and spa were lovely. Our hosts took the time to message us to make sure we arrived safely. We loved everything about it and will be back again. Thank you Di and Duncan for making our stay in Daylesford such an enjoyable and relaxing experience.

Briar's cottage was great - heaters were on when we arrived and just put in the code to get the key. No complaints at all - some choccies and bubbles in the fridge.

Briars Cottage is a wonderful little cottage nestled in a peaceful bush setting yet only minutes from the heart of Daylesfor and Hepburn. A clean and tidy well appointed cottage with everything you need for a great getaway weekend.
