    We really enjoyed our 6 nights stay in the cottage. The cottage is fully equipped to stay longer periods, comfortable beds, big fridge with filtered water, spacious bathroom, good internet and also connected to Netflix. The highlight of the house is backyard! We loved sitting on the deck having breakfast and watching beautiful trees. The only thing I would recommend to the owner of the cottage to get rid of coffee table in the living area, it’s too big for the room and has sharp edges.

  • Perfect accommodation!

    The property is in a great location, very handy to the bike path, town and the river. It is very quiet area and it's great to relax in the large garden.

    Fantastic cosy home with easy rail trail access to either Bright or Porepunkah by bike or foot. Loved the decking both front and rear to enjoy the lush garden and mountain views. Will definitely be back!

    Fantastic base for easy access by bike or foot into Bright or Porepunkah wth the Rail Trail right at the back door. Neat, cosy home with all amenities. Loved the decking both front and rear for outdoor enjoyment. Will definitely come again.

    This was the perfect little cottage for our family. Very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and lots of places to relax, with front and back decks. Our dog absolutely loved the garden and our kids even camped out in the back garden for a couple of nights, for the first time ever! We loved the access to the rail trail, it was a lovely and quiet location and just a gorgeous setting. The wifi password was incorrect and despite ringing up for a new one, it still didn't work, so we gave up on that. The newly renovated bathroom and laundry is fantastic and the whole place was very clean and had lots of thoughtful extras. This was a great find and we will most definitely be back!

  • Perfect in every way

    What a lovely place to stay. An enjoyable stroll into the village. Nicely appointed and extremely clean. Really enjoyed the tranquility of the outside spaces and wonderful tree canopy with the birds. Having to pick up the key during office hours is a pain and restricts being able to utilize the day effectively. Surely a lock box would work!! Would certainly recommend to others and return.

  • Beautiful Bright

    We recently spent 10 nights in the Rail Trail Cottage and it was just perfect! So peaceful and beautiful gardens to sit out and relax in. Waking to birdsong and walking the rail trail into town. The cottage was so comfortable, clean, gorgeous setting and everything we needed for a lovely holiday . We will definitely be going back.....we didn't want to leave!

    Lovely place to stay. Easy stroll into Bright. Well appointed and extremely clean. No key for the bike shed sadly and very thin walls to outside from bedrooms (and I’m being very picky!) but otherwise all as advertised. Dog friendly was an absolute bonus. Would recommend to anyone.

  • Great value
