I confess that I haven’t actually been to Green Gables, as Stuart and Philip made their move too late for us to visit. But I have no problem recommending it, as we already know what great hosts they are and count them as GG stalwarts! Until recently they ran a very popular B&B called Heathville in Melbourne that we featured in the first edition of this guide.....

.... For a change of scene and a taste of the countryside, they have upped sticks and resettled in this delightful, almost Tolkienesque New South Wales landscape. The Tilbas (I do[i/] know the Tilbas) are adorable twins, tiny heritage (late nineteenth-century) villages hidden amid a swell of undulating hills and surrounded by green pastureland. Green Gables itself was built in 1879 and sits beneath Mt Dromedary (or sacred Gulaga). Breakfast, often taken on one of the wide verandahs, can take all morning if you want to linger, as guests often make friends with each other in such a friendly environment. There is loads to do in the region, including fishing and bush-walking, with beaches and national parks nearby and many cottage industries like cheese- and wine-making on your doorstep. As long as your hosts are at the helm you will have found the most homely, relaxed place to base yourself in the area.
