Grayton House is amazing, very special. A real home away from home, Thea has made the space very comfortable, with throw rugs, luxurious bath, cushions, open fire, chocolates and the rest.
A very special and romantic place to stay, private, quiet, peaceful, cosy, stunning gardens.. We couldn't have asked for more, exceeded our expectations..
Thank you Thea, we loved our stay.
We loved The Shack it was absolutely gorgeous! We arrived to find everything warm and cosy and very welcoming. The kitchen supplies were wonderful, fresh crusty loaf of bread milk,yoghurt, butter, jams & fruit & veg were provided so we didn't even need to go back out in search of food. The property surrounding the shack is beautiful & the view from every window was charming. We would happily stay here again. Woodend is a sweet country town well worth visiting we loved it.Thea was a wonderful host allowing us to check out later on Sunday morning after my friend unfortunately was sick all Saturday night. Overall I would highly recommend a stay at the shack if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle & immerse yourself in peace and serenity!
Grayton House is like stepping into a fantasy world. Beautiful and enchanting. You really do feel transported to the French countryside. It's comfortable and grand. The fireplace was wonderful to warm ourselves by on a cold country evening. The king size bed super comfortable and warm (thanks to the electric blanket). The bath almost big enough to swim laps in. The property has a pond with the most beautiful white feathered yellow beaked ducks. The whole place has an air of romance about it. Thea is a gracious host too. She was happy to help with any queries we had and made us feel at home.
Lovely romantic room for a great weekend relax escape. Very detail room contains everything we need. Really appreciate thea's considerate. We will definitely come back again. Strongly recommended!!!
Our stay at The Shack was amazing. Thea is absolutely lovely and made us feel so welcome. She had music playing, candles lit and a beautiful essence oil burning when we arrived. The fireplace was lovely. The bed was very comfy with an electric blanket. We were planning to go out for breakfast but Thea provided a lovely fresh loaf of bread and we just wanted to make the most of the time we had there so we had breakfast by the fire. We didn't want to ever leave! We will definitely by coming back here.
We booked The Shack last minute before a long weekend, and Thea was nothing but accommodating.
The Shack itself was just perfect - arrived to a cosy, candle-lit cottage with freshly cut flowers, fresh fruit & bread and a very well-stocked kitchen & fridge which was such an unexpected & pleasant surprise.
Plenty of firewood, clean & tidy, gorgeous bedding & even crisp white robes to add to the relaxing weekend!
Such a wonderful experience - can't wait to rent this cottage again.
Thea was truly a perfect host.
A gorgeous place - so lovely to wake up to the quiet of this countryside and beautiful old trees surrounding...then to have everything there for a lovely breakfast (with soy milk option to boot!) meaning we didn't have to head away early... perfect!
Grayton House is even more charming in real life!
Everything about the stay was above expectation - from the luxurious bed and linen, to the deep bathtub, fluffy throw rugs, gorgeous dining area overlooking the gardens, generous (and delicious) breakfast supplies, fresh flowers, bowls of nuts and chocolates, lit candles and the crackling fireplace that was waiting for me.
Thea is a warm, fun, gorgeous host who made me feel very welcome. Her attention to detail was very much appreciated. I really didn't want to leave this little piece of the French countryside ... I can't wait to return!
A truly beautiful place to stay! We loved arriving to the candlelit cottage, with music playing ready for us. All the details are well thought out here, plenty of firewood and a well-stocked kitchen (there was even soy milk!). We also enjoyed the morning greetings by the friendly dogs who would politely wait at the front door.
What a treat to have spent the weekend in The Shack (which really felt more like a blissful haven in the woods). The grounds on which the cottage sits includes a pond and plenty of wide open spaces in which we immediately took to retreating amongst. Neighbouring the property was a stud farm and how fun it was for us to meet and greet the local horses! Venturing out to Mount Macedon and Hanging Rock was as easy as pie and we loved coming home to the sounds of silence in the evening. We even had a bbq our first night. The Shack was very well-stocked. In fact, we ended up taking some of our groceries home with us because we found the complimentary food more than enough for us. Thea created a warm, inviting and loving space for us to unwind in with relaxing music playing, a freshly boiled kettle for our many cups of tea and delicious fruit to feast on. Just perfect!
Thea was really a good guest! We wrote each other because it was last second reservation and we were both on time at the apartment! They left house quiet perfect! she and her family were very kind and nice.
Hope to see her for another time. Many thanks
Thea was at my B&B with her family and they were great, so nice, kind and respectfull!! They were traveling from New Zeland around Europe and Middle East ,planning the travel a little bit, drifting from the trip. They were here just the time to relax one night, but had a present for me: perfect guests, you will not regreat hosting them!
Thea ha soggiornato con suo marito e sua figlia e prima di tutto mi ha fatto tanto piacere vedere una famigla con un bellissimo rapporto, di amicizia e complicità .
Tutti loro sono molto simpatici e socievoli, E' bello stare in loro compagnia e sono molto educati ed ordinati e sanno godersi la vacanza e i luoghi.
Thea è anche una ottima cuoca :-)))) , con poco , ha fatto una pasta al sugo e polpette il cui profumo si sentiva lontano un miglio.
Spero di rivedervi presto
