Our peaceful garden retreat in the heart of the Dandenong Ranges is ideal for those who love quality, self-contained B&B accommodation in a beautiful garden setting. You will enjoy the privacy of your own cottage, the seclusion of our two acre property and the abundance of local birdlife.

Our boutique guest accommodation consists of two charming 1 and 2 bedroom cottages and a one bedroom 'petite suite' in a secluded, private and romantic setting. Gas log fires, spas, fully equipped kitchens and private decks with BBQ are just some of the many features in our Stables & Camellia Cottages. The English country gardens and meadow nestle amongst a huge variety of beautiful century old trees.

Clarendon is within easy walking distance of Sassafras Village, the home of the famous Miss Marples Tearoom and Sherbrooke Forest where you can see the lyrebirds foraging happily.

Within minutes of Clarendon you can be wandering around the quaint and charming villages of Sassafras, Olinda & Mt Dandenong or be visiting six out of the eight Great Gardens of Victoria.

In 10 minutes you could be riding on the legendary 'Puffing Billy' steam train in Belgrave, walking the Kokoda Trail 1000 steps at the foot of the mountain or looking out from the Sky High Observatory at the top of Mt Dandenong over the greater Melbourne landscape. In under 20 minutes you could be picking berries and cherries in Silvan. In 40 minutes you can be visiting the world renowned Yarra Valley Wineries or the Yarra Ranges National Park. The choice of destinations is endless!

A message from your host
"Welcome to all our visitors. We trust you will enjoy and love our Clarendon property as much as we do.

The beauty of our secluded acreage with it's English country gardens is a world away from the pressures of modern day living and we invite you to share it for a relaxing weekend or maybe an extended stay. There is so much to experience in the magnificent Dandenong Ranges & Yarra Valley area so why not enjoy your time sightseeing and sampling the local fare and then at the end of the day return to your cosy, comfortable cottage, put your feet up in front of the fire with a glass of excellent Yarra Valley wine and watch as the mist comes down over the trees on a cold winters night. What more could you ask for! We look forward to making your stay a memorable one."
