Welcome, skip to the content.

Sassafras, where Clarendon Cottages are located, is almost 2000 feet above sea level in Victoria's magnificent Dandenong Ranges and is only 45 minutes by car from the city of Melbourne and just 30 minutes from the internationally renowned wineries of the beautiful Yarra Valley.

The enchanted grounds of Clarendon are reached from Clarkmont Road, the dress circle of Sassafras, a truly delightful setting, tucked quietly away off the main Mount Dandenong Tourist Road.

Clarendon's boutique guest accommodation consists of two charming cottages in a secluded, peaceful and romantic setting. Two acres of English country gardens and meadows nestle amongst a huge variety of beautiful century old trees. The cottages are within easy walking distance of Sassafras Village and Sherbrooke Forest.

Two cosy one and two bedroom cottages each with it's own individual charm are located separately on the two acre property. Gas log fires, spa's, fully equipped kitchens, air conditioning and private decks with barbecue facilities are some of the many features.

Gourmet breakfast provisions are provided for the first two mornings of your stay.

Country tranquillity gives you a peaceful and relaxed sleep, awakening to the sound of the kookaburras.

The Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges region is a truly great escape, an unbeatable combination of fantastic food and wine, breathtaking scenery, romantic hideaways and easy adventure.

Hospitality you will not be able to forge.
