Have a country romance

These exquisite cottages ooze romance. Add dazzling glimpses of Melbourne's twinkling lights and bay at night, and the result is a heavenly mountain-top escape. Here you will also find an incredible four seasons garden of manicured hedges, hydrangeas, soaring bamboo borders and massive camellias and rhododendrons.

Your individually styled private cottage or suite awaits. Couples seeking a special escape should choose between the evocatively named Ironbark Cottage, Owl's Croft or Windsong Cottage. Each has been filled with thoughtful inclusions, like a romantic bed setting, wood fire, espresso machine and indulgent spa bath. Pop the provided bottle of bubbly, snuggle up on the deep Chesterfields and enjoy the romantic ambience.

But if you are looking for group accommodation, the additional cottage option, Candlewick, offers four bedrooms in a house-sized two-storey cottage with plenty of space for friends. Take the suite next door and you can enjoy a private sanctuary for up to fi ve couples, complete with an outdoor entertaining area and pizza oven. Better still, book the whole property and it becomes your exclusive venue for an intimate wedding or special event for up to 16 guests in total.
