Love, love, love!

What a perfect retreat to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary this weekend. We can’t recommend this couples accommodation in the country highly enough! From the friendly, passionate, hardworking staff (Rennae, Michael & Carol) to the bespoke boutique room with beautiful amenities & indulgent brekkie all surrounding this historic property - it’s simply divine in every way. Thank you for making my surprise come true!


Fantastic Wedding Venue

Thanks so much to Tocal Homestead for hosting our wedding. We were blown away by the spectacular scenery and friendly nature of everyone on the property! Thank you.


Heritage Experience

The homestead is well worth a look as it has some great historical buildings. We also did the Open day at the college which was brilliantly run and very informative. A lovely part of the world.
