Place was beautiful and spacious (not a small cottage as some have described), the lounge was huge and the fireplace made for a romantic setting. Jane sure knows how to set a fire and she was welcoming and accommodating. All sorts of things to find around the property if you want to go exploring, like the ruins of an old miners cottage. Would highly recommend and we hope to be back again!

Jane's house is just perfect - beautiful in every way from the moment you turn into the driveway, to the small touches in every space. We had the perfect weekend!

What a perfect girls weekend away we had at the Potager. It was everything we wanted and more. The property is filled with gorgeous gardens and spots to sit down and relax. The pool was perfect for the hot weather and we enjoyed eating antipasto and drinking wine by the cottage. 10/10

This was an excellent place for a holiday. The home is charming with many quirky elements. It is fully set up for entertaining which is becoming rare. Jane lives on the property but does nor intrude in any way. The accommodation is split between the house and a studio. The two bedrooms in the house have a partial wall separating them, but no door, so you will need to know your fellow holiday makers well. The pool was a godsend with the summer weather, and is wonderfully large and deep. The multiple living areas, inside and outside, provide some 'alone' time. We loved our stay.

Our stay at The Potager was magic. Jane has great style. The stone cottage and surrounds felt like a slice of provincial France in the the Victorian goldfields. We enjoyed the great collection of art, history and poetry books. Jane was very welcoming and left us to our devices. We mostly just ate cheese. Awesome.
