A life-size Royal Doll’s House in the Dandenongs

Edna Walling is regarded as one of Australia’s leading landscape designers and it is now possible to stay in one of her charming cottages surrounded by a hectare of glorious garden.

Located just a short stroll from Sherbrooke Forest in Victoris’s Dandenong Ranges this charming self-contained B&B is perfect for anyone in the mood for a romantic getaway.

The design for the cottage, built in 1936, came from Princess Elizabeth and Margaret’s life-size dolls’ house at Royal Lodge in Scotland. The two-storey historic cottage underwent an extensive restoration and modernisation to make a delightful getaway for two adults.

The beautifully kept Walling-designed garden is a tribute to the designer’s genius and boasts many special features including a sweeping stone staircase leading to a reflecting pond, rare plantings and a network of garden paths leading to a croquet lawn, cottage garden, orchard, nursery and even a model Tudor village.
