Clarendon Cottages Sassafras

Clarendon Cottages in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges is private, romantic and peaceful. Not far from Melbourne - very close to perfect.

Clarendon's boutique self contained guest accommodation has three charming cottages set on two acres of English country gardens amongst a huge variety of beautiful century old trees.

The recently renovated cottages are within easy walking distance of both Sassafras Village - the home of Miss Marples Tearoom and Sherbrooke Forest where you can see the lyrebirds foraging happily.

Within minutes you can be trekking the 1,000 Steps Kokoda Trail, looking out from the Sky High Observatory or riding the Puffing Billy steam train.

Gas log fires, air conditioning, spas, fully equipped kitchens, and private decks with barbecue facilities are some of the many features of the two larger cottages. There is also a one bedroom petite suite suitable for a couple or single traveller which just oozes cosiness.

Located just 45 minutes from Melbourne CBD and 30 minutes from the internationally renowned wineries of the beautiful Yarra Valley.

You are invited to come and enjoy the unique experience of the bed and breakfast culture at Clarendon in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges.
