We’re always delighted to welcome people to The Village Green. Here’s what some of our guests have said.
The house was fantastic and very well layed out. John and Row were very accommodating and lay back. The stay was memorable, we had a lovely scenery (so quiet with a perfect weather), a beautiful, light and comfortable house with a great company. The pavillon itself was beautiful , shame we didn’t have time to have a look around but it would seem to be a perfect place for wedding 🙂 The downside is that I came accross few huntsmans but at least it was a proof that we were out of the city , in our own space. I would recommend this place to everyone!
Our family of 17 people spent the weekend at The Village Green to celebrate my 65 birthday. John & Ros were very friendly and helpful in answering my questions prior to our arrival and they were there to welcome us when we arrived. We used the B & B section which was quite adequate and comfortable with enjoyable breakfast. The family used the bunkhouse and found it to be very well equipped with full kitchen & all utensils, BBQ, large dining room and table. The children had a wonderful time playing cricket and footy on the oval, and thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the premises and explanation of the amazing collection of cricket memorabilia. The area was picturesque and peaceful. We drove to Yea and had a family bike ride along the well maintained bike track and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. A bonus was the fact that Australian Test player, Chris Rogers, is the son of John & Ros!
We had a fantastic relaxing time. Would highly recommend staying here again. People are fantastic and so lovely.
We organised a weekend to Strath Creek, where we had most guests arrive on Saturday to play a game of cricket and enjoy the surrounds and picnic areas. From the moment we arrived to the time we departed, our host was fantastic. Our host went to great lengths to make us feel very special. The casual cricket game was a massive hit with everyone from the age of 36 to 68, having what they described as “a day they will never forget”. Again, we owe it, not only to the amazing back drop and attention to detail (design of cricket ground down to the history of the roses) but too our host, who was an extraordinary person.
My friends and I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Village Green bunkhouse. Google Maps may lead you to the wrong place but road signage is sufficient to get you there. Ros greeted us when we got there and gave us a tour of the place. John and Ros are really friendly, and will try their best to make your stay an enjoyable one. The image of the Pavilion led me to believe that that was the place we were spending the night, but it’s actually a separate bunkhouse behind the Pavilion. It has a deck with a beautiful view of the rolling hills, and we spent a lot of time on the deck. There is hardly any reception there, which we actually enjoyed. It’s so close to the city, but was the perfect weekend getaway. Oh, and we made use of the campfire, which was beautiful on that cold night. I would definitely return.
8 of us had a fantastic stay at the bunkhouse! What is so wonderful about this place is the surrounds and it’s proximity to Melbourne. It is only an hour and a quarter from the city centre but feels like you are in the middle of nowhere- a very convenient escape. The bunkhouse is surrounded by hills and has a beautiful view, especially from the deck. The master bedroom has floor to ceiling windows on two sides, such a lovely way to wake up. It is a very comfortable space with lots of room. It was so nice to have a fireplace for the cooler evenings. Our hosts were welcoming, helpful and friendly but not intrusive in any way. There were cricket games during our stay but we found them to be fairly quiet and not too disturbing- it would definitely not prevent me from wanting to return! Overall a really great stay at a lovely location with communicative and welcoming hosts!
John made us feel very welcome. He was there to meet us when we arrived on the first night and made sure we knew where everything was located. He had even got the fire going a few hours before we arrived so the place was lovely and warm. The Bunkhouse was perfect for our group of 15. We were very comfortable during our stay, and had everything we needed. The BBQ was large and looked almost brand new. There was additional refrigeration in the Engel which meant we had plenty of space to keep food and drinks cool. I would highly recommend the Bunkhouse to anyone looking for a comfortable, self-contained weekend away!
Our team headed home with the warm glow of victory after an excellent day on the Green. it was a pleasure to meet you and Ros and see the beautiful condition of the ground and pavilion. Many thanks for hosting the Eccentrics, most of whom are probably hobbling around the office today.
Wonderful lunch, and after coming here for several years, this is the best I have ever seen the place – inside and out.
Thank you for looking after us so well. We had a great couple of days and the boys keep asking non-stop to go to the nets.
