Be careful, you may not want to leave. Tastefully done cottages, surrounded by beautiful gardens. It is the kind of place that makes you want to stay. Provided eggs, bread, milk, jam, coffee, and tea. Just a short walk to the beach.

I’ve stayed at many 5 star places before, but this one beats them all. Only 3 cottages on a beautifully landscaped site. It is so quiet you can actually hear birds tweeting. You could spend ages strolling around the gardens, its fun. The hosts are welcoming and have thought of evening. The cottages are welcoming – lights left on if you are going to be a little late, homemade jam, bread, eggs, butter, underfloor bathroom heating, top quality furnishings. The beds and linens are little drops of heaven and the shower massages the working aches away. The only downfall is that we had to leave on Sunday and go home. We will definitely be back.

The first thing that strikes you as you enter Lawn Cottages is the genuine welcome from the hosts, and the wag of the tail of Onyx the puppy. The property is amazing, and each cottage has its own private garden area. I stayed in Flax and felt like I was in a world of my own as I sat having a sauvignon on the deck in the sun. The attention to detail is second to none. I travel heaps with work, and this place is just something else. The arrangement of the towels in the bathroom, the lit candle in the lounge, the basket of eggs and freshly baked bread in the kitchen... the amazing bed with pillows that just invite you to sink into your own deep slumber. And talk about clean - wow. The place is so well put together, an extremely well thought out. The hosts have clearly understood

We stayed for 4 nights in the cottage. What a wonderful garden setting it's just so lovely and well looked after. I enjoyed the garden everyday we were there, I think I spotted something new each day what a joy. The cottage was welcoming, very comfortable and warm (we stayed during winter) all the amenities needed were there. It was also spotlessly clean:) We loved the relaxed feel and the candles and extra's (fresh herbs and goodies for breakfast) were a lovely addition. We had a great nights sleep too. We took our pet along which we really appreciated being able to do. David was a great host and we felt very welcome.
