Cosy and clean cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very cosy and exactly what we needed. It was very clean and the fire was going when we got there. Gwyn was a very friendly host and the farm and the surroundings were beautiful. Would def go back and stay longer.

Lovely hosts, peaceful and beautiful surroundings, well kept warm cottage

  • 5 of 5

Just perfect for the two of us but also would be great for a family. Host Gwyn was lovely to talk to and he kindly took us down to the stream and to feed the calves. We would definitely come back probably bringing the kids with us.

Otways, Great Ocean Road

A holiday never to be forgotten

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were greeted with a warm fire and even warmer hospitality. Thus begun the ideal family holiday. Our ten and eleven year old sons enjoyed four days of feeding calves, exploring bushland and discovering glow worms, (thanks Gwyn for the guided tour). Our secluded location was close enough to easily explore all the Great Ocean Road has to offer, yet far enough to enjoy the tranquility of the farm. Our hosts Gwyn and Dianne couldn't have been more helpful and inviting, from home made brownies and fresh blueberries to inviting our sons to help with farm chores daily. We highly recommend a stay at Meadow Farm Cottage.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

This great cottage on a beautiful farm was such a nice retreat from the hustle and bustle yet close enough to nearby towns and beaches for exploring. The cottage had everything we needed. The owners were wonderful and even went out of their way to make our stay a special experience for us and our daughter. (She is still asking when she can go and see the dog and calves again.)

Would definitely stay here again!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage which is in a superb, peaceful location in the hills, yet convenient for sightseeing on the coast and inland. The cottage itself is clean and very comfortable and the hosts could not have been more generous and welcoming.

Owner's Response: Hello Roger and Claire, It was good to meet you, if only briefly. We hope the rest of your holiday in Oz and New Zealand is all you would wish it to be. Best wishes, Dianne and Gwyn
