I want to share some photos I took of the amazing cottage we stayed at last week. It’s located in Montville, Queensland which is a two hourish drive north of Brisbane. It is part of a bed & breakfast adorably named The Spotted Chook and is fully self contained, overlooking a lush cluster of hills and trees – the best part is that you can sit in the spa on the balcony and appreciate the serenity! The cottage was decorated in a beautiful French country rustic style and was just the most fabulous place I have ever laid my head.
I was entirely relaxed after a few days here, it was just perfect. We went to the Eumundi markets (I have a story about that coming too!), visited Maleny Cheese Factory and Settler’s Rise Winery, soaked in the bath eating local cheese and port and just generally blissed out.
The food was absolutely amazing – Leeroy, the owner, cooked us breakfast both days and it was phenomenal. The most notable little treat was a prune tart from Normandy. If anyone knows the French name for this and a recipe, I’ll love you forever!
