We stayed over for one night only. The cottage is very well equiped and comfortable. A lovely garden and fabulous bird life. The host Jane is most charming and welcoming. Will definitely try to spend more time here soon. Highly recommended if you want to get away from it all.

We absolutely loved staying at Sweet Fountain Cottage. It was very comfortable and complete.  The cottage has the best location, just ten minutes drive away from Bathurst and a 15 minute drive to the beach in Port Alfred.  Our children loved playing with the three dogs.  The owners were very helpful.
