Country-luxe cottage experience

I had the pleasure of overnighting in the two-bed cottage last week – it was truly an amazing experience!
The country setting surrounded by rolling hills; combined with Trish’s hospitality, impeccable decore and local produce pre-prepared in a hamper. Loads of things to see and do, including animal feeding! I would highly recommend this cottage farm-stay.


Paradise in the Scenic Rim

My family and I, including my daughters aged 6 and 8, spent 3 nights in this incredible accommodation. This luxury 2 bedroom apartment very comfortably catered for a family of 4. Some highlights include the beautiful indoor fireplace, the outdoor fire pit (where many marshmallows were toasted and star gazing time spent), the 70 magical acres of land our children played in, the very friendly farm animals that you could be as involved with as you wanted, and the spectacular bath that overlooks the very private space, apart from the odd Kangaroo jumping past.

Trish the host and owner of the farm is so open and friendly and if you are interested children and adults have the opportunity to learn more about farming life and to feed the gentle and friendly farm animals. A real highlight for our daughters was this birth of 2 lambs on day 2 of our stay and the girls got to nurse and name them! A very special memory. Overall we had a great family holiday here and look forward to coming again soon. I would highly recommend this accommodation to families and couples alike wanting a peaceful country escape, for just a weekend or longer.

Wonderful luxury weekend away

Stayed in the Shay for a long weekend away enjoying the country and local vineyards and restaurants. Could not have asked for anything more. Indoor fireplace and outdoor fire pit. Lovely deck to sit on day and night. Wandered around the property and felt a million miles away from the hassle of the city. Perfect accommodation and a great host in Trish. Will be back (didn’t want to leave)

Peaceful and comfortable

We stayed in the 2-bedroom cottage in late August. Fully equipped and very comfortable, and totally peaceful in a secluded valley. High ceilings, lovely furnishings, warm fire plus aircon, beautiful bathroom and full kitchen fit-out with a good-sized fridge. Trish the host very helpful and with good advice on local attractions. Garden also colourful and welcoming. Could not have asked for more.


Magical Country Escape

We loved our short escape to the magical Country Miles Escape. It was so refreshing escaping the overwhelming smoke from the city to the green country side. Tris was very welcoming. Our little princess loved feeding the baby Goat. 🐐 Locally you can explore the many activities from horse riding, milking the Cow, dinning etc. Highly recommend it


Secluded, scenic and chic

We stayed in The Shay for 2 nights. It is an extremely well appointed cabin with a French Provincial theme. The cabin is secluded, but has spectacular views and the friendly sheep, cattle and horses that meander past at various times of the day certainly give you the feeling of being in the country. We needed a “recharge” after the hustle and bustle of buying a new house and packing, moving, and unpacking, and this was the ideal spot. We very much enjoyed the stay, and were also impressed with the hosts, Trish and Murray, who were very welcoming but then didn’t intrude at any point of the stay. We will definitely be returning.

Excellent – can’t wait to go back

The only reason for not giving this fabulous getaway five stars is to try and keep it a secret so it’s easier to get a booking for next time. What a magic location with total privacy – just you, the animals and the wildlife. The only thing friendlier than the cows, sheep and horses are Trish and her wonderful family. Beautifully appointed cottage, comfy bed and a spectacular bath looking over the scenery. Everything you think of for a country escape, but close to Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Beautiful accommodation in a wonderful location!!!

This place is AMAZING !!!! It’s so calm and peaceful that you are able to relax straight away. It’s perfect for a secluded couples getaway or families that want to get back to nature. And for all the ladies that love a well designed bathroom, this place is the BEST !!!


Mid Week Escape

From booking to departure Trish (owner) provided friendly, country hospitality. The accomodation is in an excellent location to explore the Scenic Rim and Lamington National Parks. The stylish, well appointed and private cottage is set on 70 acres which has great views, walking opportunities or just relax and unwind. Planning a return visit. Can recommend highly.
