Lesley's cottage was perfect for a girl's weekend away- there was no television, internet or phone signal so it was lovely to escape from technology and the associated pressures of emails and texts to respond to and missed phone calls to return. The main living room was a definite highlight as it contained the most fantastic original 1960s furniture and a large wood fire. Would highly recommend to any couple or small family wanting a real escape from the city in a quiet and beautiful environment.

Cute cozy cottage in the gorgeous little hamlet of Blackwood. Don't be put off by the fact it's on the Main Street, it's super quiet but with the advantage of being walking distance to the local shop, cafe, pub and walks in the beautiful Lederderg State Park. The setting is gorgeous amongst trees and we saw plenty of kookaburras and rosellas, as well as evidence of roos and wombats. The house itself had everything you needed (except maybe a TV and WiFi but a good excuse to completely switch off!) and once we got the fire going, it was lovely and toasty warm. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. It was lovely to sit in the warm conservatory and have a cup of tea and overlook the garden. Lesley was very accommodating given that we booked extremely last minute and gave us lots of local tips and recommendations. We had an excellent lunch at The Blackwood Merchant, a no frills but friendly dinner at the local pub and strolled from the house to the nearby mineral springs. Trentham is only a short 12 minute drive with more shops and cafes. A lovely little place for a Winter getaway: Blackwood is a hidden gem! Well recommended.

Beautiful cottage style home in the sleepy town of Blackwood. Ideal location to disconnect and sit by the fire place (winter stay for us). Great base for exploring the local bush lands. Lesley is a fantastic host. Highly recommended, we would love to return in Spring for another visit.

Situated at the end of one of Victoria's most charming main streets Lesley's provided us with all the comforts we needed for a cosy mid winter getaway. The wood heater was roaring when we arrived, the wrought iron bed and bedding kept us warm when we weren't in front of the fire or cooking up a storm in the well equipped kitchen. Blackwood feels like it is much further from the sprawling metropolis of Melbourne than it actually is.

Lesley went out of her way to make us feel welcome and at home. It's a cute and funky little place, within walking distance of everything, and centrally located. It had everything we needed, and we were even kept informed of frost warnings.

I love coffee, natural food and the simple pleasures of a slow life.
Blackwood has this and more; lots of opportunities to experience the Australian bush & bird life, bush walking, trail-running & MTB rides and just unwinding.
