We have visited Patrick at Bemboka a number of times now as our family of 4 plus our 3 dogs. We are not sure who loves it most actually as it's perfect for all to rest, relax or get active with what is on offer in the area. We now have come to looking forward to opportunities to get away to Stroudover in the school holidays, and always find something new to explore each time we stay.
Patrick is a wonderful host and would highly recommend to anyone, but in particular if you enjoy cooking and want to learn more in the heart of where you are staying. We loved the cheese making course.
Thanks Patrick for making Stroudover so special, and can only recommend to those who want to take advantage of this idyllic setting whilst also getting the chance to relax with your family and man's best friend!
We continue to visit a few times a year, and it's our number 1 'family getaway' for lots of great reasons.
My lovely husband arranged 60th birthday experience of a lifetime. Multi course gourmet dinner with family served with great style by Patrick. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful meal. Cottage was lovely with views over surrounding countryside. Recommend this weekend experience to anyone celebrating a special day. Thanks Patrick
We stayed here for a special occasion and the experience was way beyond expectations.
We enjoyed an amazing 5 course dinner tailor made and created to our tastes. The lengths Patrick went to ensure the meal was just right was incredible.
Patrick went out of his way to research and deliver a dessert that had precious emotional connection to my childhood.
The food was of very high restaurant standard and whilst we were nervous about having a chef in "our" space it was so comfortable and still felt so private!!
The accomodation is very comfortable, clean and has all you need to cook and be self sufficient. Or like us you can drive within 45 minutes to some amazingly cute villages and markets.
We've been guests at Sroudover cottage multiple times and keep coming back to be pampered and to experience the finest of dining.
Stroudover is a relaxed stay, it's dog friendly if that's your thing, and oh so quiet. The guest cottage is separate from the main farmhouse so your privacy is assured. Host Patrick is friendly and attentive but doesn't intrude into your tranquility either.
We usually visit because of the gourmet evenings that Patrick hosts. Stay with two other friends and Chef Patrick will present a world class meal for you right in your cottage while you sip on your wine and toast your toes in front of the fire.
We've eaten in many fine dining establishments both in Australia and abroad and a night at Stroudover rates as one of the very best.
