CLARENDON COTTAGES: Luxury accommodation Sassafras, Dandenong Ranges

This quiet garden retreat in the Dandenong Ranges is ideal for those who love quality, self-contained B&B accommodation and a beautiful setting. You will enjoy the privacy of your own cottage, the seclusion of our two acre property and the abundance of the local wildlife. If you are looking for a little more action there are wonderful walking trails to explore in Sherbrooke Forest and the Yarra Ranges National Park or perhaps challenge your fitness with a hike up the 1000 Kokoda Steps at the foot of the mountain.

Our boutique guest accommodation in the heart of the Dandenongs consists of two charming 1 and 2 bedroom cottages in a secluded, peaceful and romantic setting. Gas log fires, spas, fully equipped kitchens and private decks are just some of the many features in our Stables & Camellia Cottages.  Two acres of English country gardens and meadow nestle amongst a huge variety of beautiful century old trees. The cottages are within easy walking distance of Sassafras Village, the home of the famous Miss Marples Tearoom (best scones on the mountain) and Sherbrooke Forest where you can see the lyrebirds wandering happily.

In the Dandenongs there are many things to do in the vicinity of Clarendon. Within minutes you can be wandering around the lively and colourful villages of Sassafras, Olinda & Mt Dandenong or be visiting six out of the eight Great Gardens of Victoria - National Rhododendron Gardens, Alfred Nicholas Gardens, George Tindale Gardens, William Ricketts Sanctuary, Cloudehill or Pirianda Gardens. For the young at heart, 10 minutes away there's the legendary 'Puffing Billy' steam train in Belgrave, the Kokoda Trail 1000 steps and the Sky High Observatory at the top of Mt Dandenong. Many antique shops house treasures next to contemporary galleries and studios filled with craft, sculpture and decorator items created by the many artists who have made the Dandenongs their home.

The Dandenong Ranges is also home to a great number of restaurants, cafes and tearooms like Wild Oak, Miss Marples, The Cuckoo, Ranges and the new Copperfields Restaurant suiting a wide range of palates and pockets! Tesselaar's Tulip Farm is a short drive from the Dandenongs and the world renowned Yarra Valley Wineries just a 45 minute drive.

For our overseas and interstate guests, the Dandenong Ranges is only 60 minutes' drive from the Melbourne International Airport and 45 minutes from the Melbourne CBD.

We invite you to come and enjoy the unique experience of the Bed & Breakfast culture in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges.
