Thank you for a lovely stay we absolutely loved our stay at Myrtle Cottage. It's in the perfect location to explore Wollombi and it's surrounding area. The cottage was charming and modern (newly refurbished). The cottage had everything we needed and we could even order room service from Myrtle House Cafe which was such a treat. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
