Words cannot do this place justice. All we can say is that is utterly incredible and we can't wait to come back in the future. Thank you so much! Georgia & Kate Aug 2014




Such a lovely little spot. I woke up to a beautiful view inclusive of a rainbow! Loved being far away from everything. What a great treat. Thanks for the breakfast and making sure everything we needed was all here for us to enjoy.

Absolute serenity!  Thank you Manda & Phil for one of the most beautiful, peaceful and relaxing holidays ever!!  We adore your property and to wake up to this amazing view and the sound of nature was perfect for our second honeymoon. We will definitely be back.

Nothing beats the tranquility and peace of mind of spending time in nature. Donnybrook provides it all and more. Top of the list is the hospitality - Phil & Manda and the warmth of their welcome. The tent is terrific as it is airy, open & extremely comfortable. What a bed! The best was waking up to the rising sun, hearing the birds & frogs and seeking the ducks wade through the dam. My hosts even provided amazing weather for July and I loved the morning bike ride to the winery & the old bridge. Could only have been better if I was able to share it with my wonderful wife. Next time for sure!

We had a beautifully relaxing & fun long weekend. Going to sleep with the orchestra of nature was truly magical, as was the sunrise. Thank you for your hospitality.

We've enjoyed an unforgettable three days glamping. It wil be hard to go back to regular camping that's for sure. Arriving in the evening from Sydney, it was very special waking up the next day to see the beautiful surroundings for the first time; watching the ducks play in the dam from the comfort of bed was a lovely way to start the day. We loved meeting all the animals too and seeing kangaroos across the field one evening. Other highlights were driving down the nearby country roads, making smores by the fire and enjoying all the delicious goodies in the fridge. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and peaceful slice of the world with us. Chloe & James Apr 2014



Where to start? We are so happy to have stumbled upon Donnybrook while looking for a peaceful getaway to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We could not have chosen a more perfect place. Surrounded by nature and beauty, yet still with all the luxuries we needed. But most importantly, you couldn't have been more wonderful hosts. So warm and welcoming and giving; and we have been so well fed (it is hard to decide what we loved most; the caramel slice, pancakes, freshly ground coffee, or bacon & fresh farm eggs!) Thank you. We will never forget our special weekend here, and will be back - we want to share this with all our friends. Everyone needs to treat themselves to a weekend here. Damien & Greta Nov 2013



We arrived at night, in the wet. It had been raining for days & everything was wet except the inside of the tent. Amazingly we were greeted by dry surroundings and everything provided. Thanks to Manda for waiting up for us. We both keep pretty busy in our lives so it was great to chill out & spend the day doing nothing, or should I say eating, sleeping & talking. Top notch facilities. Thank you.
