Welcome to a gorgeous B&B cottage in Melbourne, tried & tested by Petite Stays B&Bs. Askrigg Cottage is a tranquil little oasis in Moonne Ponds, a suburb in the inner north-west of Melbourne, only 5 mins. walk from the train station .

About the Cottage:

Personally selected to join the Petite Stays catalogue of homes for its absolutely authentic and classic B&B style, atmosphere and service, Cottage Askrigg is a home so inviting and relaxing, you won’t want to leave. Beautifully situated on a Victorian era street, here you will enjoy a perfect mix of art deco/victorian/country-life enchantment and only 15 mins (by train) from the bustling and beautiful CBD of Melbourne. Surrounded by gorgeous gardens, guests will wake up in their own self-contained 1 bedroom spacious home, to utter silence or the sounds of birds chirping in the surrounding trees.

With its own street entry, your home is cutely nestled in the rear garden of the your hosts’ property. Martin and Berys’ residence is at the front and this gives the cottage its own separate and detached space, ideal for those who like privacy and independence. 

Whether holidaying or on business, our Petite Stays Cottage has the charm of yesteryear with all the modern conveniences. With a patio at the front, grab a tea from the fully equipped kitchen with its well-stocked pantry and enjoy a slow morning on the patio planning your perfect Melbourne days. 


Askrigg cottage is extremely well kept by our very mindful and attentive hosts, Martin and Berys, and is always kept impeccably presented and clean. Inside you will find all you need to live independently. In the large sized bedroom there is a queen bed with high quality mattress, linen and pillows and a recently renovated ensuite bathroom with walk-in shower and toiletries. The spacious living area with books, games and magazines incorporates a dining space looking out to the garden and the well-equipped kitchen also includes a laundry with wash-trough and washing machine.


There is wi-fi in the cottage and aircon.

About your hosts:

Martin and Berys are genuine, kind and generous B&B hosts who appreciate the real quality and value of intimate home-stay experiences. Martin and Berys have been offering their cottage since the early 2,000's well before , well, the internet boomed, and so they are both extremely experienced and humble B&B owners who know what it takes to make guests feel welcome. They have the experience to determine what guests need and also possess the naturally magnetic and worldly charm that only those who love to share their home with travellers from all around the world can truly possess. Open-minded, thoughtful, giving and respectful, Martin and Berys are THE perfect B&B hosts.

Martin is a semi-retired physics teacher at a top high school in Melbourne and Berys is a writer with her own publishing company selling her quirky stories for children learning to read. Both humble creatives and intellectuals, the potential for many wonderful chats is there. Of course guests should always feel free to ask Martin and Berys for any city or local tips and advice. 


About breakfast service:

On your arrival, a lovely welcome basket of breakfast provisions is left in the kitchen to help you start your Petite stay. Items include cereals, butter, yoghurt, eggs, bacon, tomatoes and your choice of bread, milk and juice.
etc This is provided on the first morning of your stay only. ? do you think we need to keep this? We think the first statement makes it clear that they only get it on arrival. What do you think?
