Second time we have stayed at Abby's cottages. Both times stayed in Bonnies Cottage. The second stay was even better than the first with some funky new interior touches. View is the best you will find because it's situated in an elevated spot in the Wandiligong valley. Looking out over the valley and the mountains opposite. It's a little bit... More

I have been fortunate enough to visit here three times and it's such a relief from the workaday world in the city. Every convenience is at hand. Stunning scenery. Visits from the local kangaroo mob. It's just it all. And those shops and restaurants in Bright are great. Heaps of drive-to locations: Buller, Tawonga Gap, Smoko, My Beauty and Beechworth... More
