Magical gardens, very clean cabin and wonderful hosts. My husband and I had a very enjoyable long weekend, I could have stayed for a month.Close to so many attractions road access very good. We ventured out each day but it was the sort of property where you could have sat on the veranda and read a book.

What a great place Granite Gardens is to stay and relax. The gardens are really beautiful and the accommodation perfectly comfortable. The owners, Fiona and Mark are very friendly and helpful. Will be back as soon as possible. Dog friendly too. Our beagle loved it!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in late October. The cottages are in a beautiful bush setting, and we had a lovely time exploring the extensive rose gardens. My husband also had a quick hit on the golf course! It is a short drive to explore all of the wineries and other gourmet goodies in the region....

We had a wonderful time at the cottages they were a slice of luxury in the wilderness. The wildlife was in abundance and the seed supplied attracted a beautiful variety of bird life. Mark our host was very informative about the area and his recommendations of what to see and do were spot on.

Granite Garden Cottages ticks all the boxes if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat to unwind from the city hustle and bustle. This little gem is nestled in the bush but only a short drive from all the services and attractions that Stanthorpe and the Granite Belt has too offer. The cottages are very clean and well...

If you're looking for a cottage in the country to unwind, then this is the place. We had a fantastic stay over the long weekend in one of the cottages. The cottages are ideal for a romantic getaway. The cottage itself is clean and well set out and the spa bath looking out into the garden was a perfect addition....

We were met with a lovely couple who were looking after the retreat on arrival who then showed us to our cottage that was further up the driveway. The property looked out over a lovely little lake and beautiful trees that was popular with lots of birds. We enjoyed the fire place as we don't get to use them in...
