Orchard Cottage is a two storey cottage set in the orchard of Little Forrest. The cottage has a warm, rustic ambience and is comfortable for groups up to four people.

Upstairs is a large combined sleeping area with bathroom.
Where will I be?
Orchard Cottage is located within the Little Forest complex, a collection of 7 cottages spread across 42 acres of grounds. Your cottage will have its own private spaces, but please be aware that other guests may be around as well. There are two other cottages as well as the Angas Carriage in immediate proximity to your cottage so please do expect to occasionally see your neighbours. Communal spaces include the lawns, gardens, driveway and trails, but you will have plenty of privacy as well. The Little Forest complex has a bush setting and is circled on one side by the Sydney - Melbourne railway line. As a result, trains are audible at times, and for any kids, part of the fun! Little Forest also has various trails throughout its 42 acres, but please keep children supervised at all times due to wildlife, unfenced dams and trains.

Great cozy place to stay, our kids loved it! We covered over 3200km, staying at beaches and cities, this was their favourite place. The grounds offered so much for them to explore, creeks, forests, lawns with wildlife in abundance. Kangaroos, cockatoos, wombats and not to mention the two miniature ponies and two llamas. The cottage was well equipped and warm with a wood heater downstairs and a split system upstairs. Staff are friendly, helpful and very accomodating, couldn't recommend it enough!
Great Place To StayLubomir - 18th May 2022
We had a great long weekend away at the Orchard Cottage. It ticked all the boxes for our family, fireplace, outdoor area, little ponies and yeah, the whole atmosphere. Very relaxing. Therefore, we have just booked another weekend away :-) 5 stars out of 5.

What an amazing place to stay. It was simply beautiful and so easy to check in and out. A home away from home. I would recommend to anyone wanting a place to have your own space and not worry about someone being right next door.
Great cottageStephanie Glover - 1st March 2022
The cottage is clean and in good condition. The location was perfect, just a short drive to major and smaller towns. The property is picturesque and we still had quite a lot of privacy. The beds were very comfortable too! I loved the charm of the property. The option of late check out (outside peak season) is fabulous. It added to the relaxation of our stay, not rushing to check out.
Great place to stay and the grounds are so pleasant to wind down in after a day exploring the southern highlands. The place is so charming and was ample for our family of four. When we got to the cottage we were surprised how big the upstairs bedroom was with airconditioning and the cottage and the grounds have BBQ's and airconditioning. Would come back again for sure. Oh and the animals are super cute and the kids loved taking them carrots in the morning.
Cosy, Classy and ComfortableKatherine (Beini) Zhang - 30th December 2020
It was such a pleasant experience for our 3 nights stay at the Little Forest! Just love the Orchard Cottage, it's perfect for one family, cosy, classy and comfortable! My daughter loved her bed and the little pony so much, wanting to go back straight away..... Loved every minute there, will definitely go back!
