A trip back in time!

A delightful cottage in a peaceful garden setting. Comfortable beds, exceptionally clean, well appointed furnishings, and lots of lovely "little extras" including fresh herbs and eggs!

What a beautiful cottage ...

What a beautiful cottage Joseph's is. It felt like a home away from home and we will definitely be back! From the moment we walked in the door we were in love with Joseph's. Every comfort we could wish for is provided. The cosy fireplace, the beautiful Aga, very comfy bed and couch, gardens and chickens made for a wonderful weekend. Thank you to Jamie for recommending such a great cottage. See you again.

A little gem

What a little gem you have here and what is there not to like. It has been so relaxing to come back to. Jamie was such a delight to book through and looked after us on return.

Peace and tranquility

What a delightful few days we have enjoyed in the peace and tranquility of Joseph's Cottage. The feeling of stepping back in time with 'olde worlde' charm enhanced with some welcome new amenities, ie air conditioning! The introductory bottle of wine from the local winery - most welcome! With chickens in the bottom of the garden, and an early alarm call from the cockatoos - great! With a little imagination, it is almost possible to see and hear those from just a few generations ago. Our thanks to Jamie for his recommendations and introductory comments. A visit to Maldon we have thoroughly enjoyed.
