Self contained, private, 2 bedroom farmhouse on 50 acres of prime farm land
About David Woodcock
Our names are David and Jane and we "retired" from Melbourne to this beautiful part of Victoria. We chose it because of its proximity to Melbourne whilst giving us the peace and tranquility of the country. We now grow walnuts and fatten beef cattle. We have a strong interest in photography and this photogenic area gives us many opportunities to unleash our creative passion.
David Woodcock purchased this Farmhouse in 2003
Why David Woodcock chose Neerim East
We had previously travelled through this area on many occasions and every time we were very attracted to it. The feeling of peace and contentment never went away. Apart from the beauty surrounding us, this area has a reasonably high rainfall. It is always green. The property has two permanent creeks and a dam. It has a mixture of flat and undulating land which is very fertile. Close proximity to Neerim South shopping , local wineries, scenic walks etc add to our enjoyment.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Rose cottage is an amazing place. Obviously added onto at various times through its history. The ceiling in the main living room is original, as are the walls in the bedrooms and hallway. The kitchen is light and sunny with room to have breakfast. The livingroom has a combustion fire which keeps the place warm and cosy. The views from the windows are wonderful. The east facing verandah is a wonderful place to either start or end the day. The view is of the native forest and the green paddocks, often including cattle. In December 2012 we built a house for ourselves hidden behind the big hay shed, ensuring privacy for everyone.

Stay at Roseworld cottage
It was memorable at Roseworld cottage. Both David and Jane were nice and helpful. We enjoyed the cottage facilities. Playing with picture puzzle, watching movie and most importantly the nature and birds around property was enjoying. Unfortunately due to bushfire we have to leave one day in advance. Looking forward to next stay.
So relaxing and knowledgeable
Me and my family had a great time at farm, Jane explained everything that they do and how they do it in details and gave us a tour of their farm. They even took us inside the paddocks and showed us their beef cattle's. Also, the property offers amazing view of neighboring farms. It was a different experience which we can never forget.
We saw many king parrots, lots of birds, Hens and roster.
Amazing house with incredible views
Thank you Jane and David. This property is amazing, we didn't want to leave. Thank you for being part of our tough Mudder adventure. We will be back.
Enjoyable getaway break
Thank you for an enjoyable get away break. The cottage is situated well on the hilltop with magnificent views all round. The place was clean and cozy. Obviously, David and Jane have put in a lot into the details to give their guests an unforgettable stay. We enjoyed it so much that by the time we had to go, we just lingered and didn't want to leave!
Great property, wonderful hosts, super location. Was the perfect weekend. Will definitely go back.
Beautiful scenery & comfy
The scenery of the rolling hills was amazing. The hosts kindly had the fire started for us as we arrived late. The cottage was very clean & comfortable for a family of 5.

Trout Farm open weekends and public/school holidays
On the farm we have many species of birds, including King Parrots which we often feed. Kangaroos regularly come out of the forest to graze in our paddock below the cottage and, at night, you need to be vigilant to avoid the wombats that come out to eat on the roadsides.
