Trickle Hill - relax in the bush

Bedrooms 3
Property type hotel
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Trickle hill is located in the bush on the edge of the Dandenong ranges, very close to Kurth Kiln and Bunyip National park. Yarra Valley is a short drive away- while bushwalking is literally at your doorstep. It is the ideal location for a relaxing break in the bush- hiking, cycling, horseriding (bring your own horse) or 4 WDing- it is all possible out of the property- or a short drive away.

Our bush (40 acres around the cottage) has plenty of wildlife, so sitting on the patio you can hear and hopefully see our wombats, echidna's, lyrebird, possums, wallabies and kangaroos, and maybe even the deer that roam our bush.

We are happy for you to put your horse in one of our paddocks, pet the pigs, play with our dogs- but be aware- we have dams on the property, so keep an eye on your children. Our animals are very friendly but you always need to keep an eye out when you don't know them!

The cottage is down the hill from our house, so there is plenty of privacy. We both have a workshop near to the cottage but will do our best not to disturb you too much. (we are both artists). Aukje offers workshops in clay- so let us know if you are interested!

Please realise that this is a rural property. The ground maybe uneven, in summer it can be dusty, and in winter muddy.

Cute, cosy and tucked away

Does what it says on the tin. Comfortable and affordable. Nothing fancy, just friendly owners, not intrusive but available if needed. Private setting with just about everything you need.
