We stayed for two nights and our aim was to walk into Wine Glass Bay which happened. The Cottage was comfie and well furnished with all mod cons including a coffee maker. The hostess ,Belinda was friendly and informative and left fresh baked scones after our second day. The gardens were lovely, the history fascinating and the area close to...

Thank you for your review ! The history of Wagners Cottages is an integral part of Swansea, something we are proud of at our little piece of the Freycinet coast ! Coffee is a must, to start your day on the right foot, so we do go that little bit further and have pod machines and Genovese plunger coffee available...

The Studio is a renovated stone walled stable that is now just perfect. Belinda and Kerry have set it out very well with everything you may need for a perfect short or longer stay. The bathroom has a spacious spa bath and the bed was very comfortable with no road noise.

Thank you Colin, it makes our efforts worthwhile to read that you were happy in the "old stables" apparently, under the bathroom floor they covered over the original cobbles, maybe one day we can restore them for our guests to enjoy !! Best wishes....Kerry and Belinda.

We arrived after a 25+ hour journey from the US and it was just what we needed! We stayed in the one bedroom cottage with lovely gardens, a paddock full of sheep, and a warm welcome from Belinda.

We had a fully self contained cottage which was simply great. The little additions were - fresh baked bread in our room upon arrival, eggs for breakfast and jams etc , chocolates on the bed, fresh cut flowers, some port to sit by the fire with all included. Very homely. Would definitely return.

On arrival we were met by the most friendly, bubbly and helpful owner (forget her name - sorry!) who made my wife and I feel as though we were at home.

We stayed in the Studio and absolutely loved it! Beautifully decorated and thoughtfully furnished. Highlights included free range eggs from the property's chooks, delicious home made scones upon arrival, a coffee pod machine, wine, "candles" in the bathroom, a peaceful private garden etc - I could go on and on. We were definitely made to feel very welcome by Belinda...

We spent one night at Wagner's cottage before our wedding and we loved the old world charm and warmth of the cottage. The attention to detail was amazing and the bed is very comfortable. Couldn't be any better, highly recommended.

Tickled pink that you found our Estate to your liking.....we do try and keep the grounds in such a manner that all the guests can either engage with others or seek out a little solitude for reflection if preferred. I think Belinda does a great job looking after our guests too.......she is a keeper ! Thank you again Kerry, Angus...
