"Can we come here again next holidays Mum?" We hadn't even left before I was being asked that! Our stay at Freshwater Creek Cottages was everything I had hoped for in a farm stay holiday. The children had a ball feeding the animals and helping the farmer. When they weren't doing that, they were tearing around on bikes, spotting wild...

My partner and I loved our stay in Woodcutters Cottage and only wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely recommend and return. It is in a beautiful spot not too far out of Torquay. We loved feeding the animals in the morning and just exploring the property. Great spot!

Our family of 5 loved our stay at Freshwater Creek Cottages. My kids aged 8, 5 and 3 just loved the opportunity to get up close to all the traditional farm animals, to feed them and sort their daily food. They also loved being able to collect fresh eggs for our breakfast each day. I particularly loved the sense of...

Thank you so much for the review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and that Lavender Cottage worked well for you.

We had a group of people of 12. We stayed at their 5 bedroom beach house in Torque. The house is magnificent. Owner Marissa and her husband Phil are very friendly with passion with their business and their customers. The price is very reasonable. Certainly if I have the chance, I will stay there again.

This is a wonderful place for families. They have lots of things to keep the little ones entertained from bikes of different shapes and sizes to footballs, animal feeding, picking up eggs etc. We had a very fun time with the wood burning fireplace and bbq outside our door. Hope to be back again!

We had a very lovely 2-night stay at Freshwater Creek Cottages. Our hosts, Marissa and Phillip are friendly and helpful. They made sure that we are always comfortable and were warm enough. The fire place was also already set-up when we checked in and we were pleasantly surprised when we found hot water bags neatly laid on the children’s beds....

Our farm stay country cottages are a great place to unwind, and take in some of the most beautiful countryside Victoria has to offe. Located just minutes from The Great Ocean Road, the beautiful beaches of the Surf Coast, Torquay, and Bells Beach, we are perfectly positioned for your next visit. Our gorgeous self contained country cottages are a welcomed retreat for family or group bookings.Or, you could visit our much loved romantic getaway, Woodcutters Cottage. Woodcutters is your own private hideaway which includes a spa and sauna. This is very secluded one bedroom holiday cottage where couples can hide out with only the sounds of the birds and native wildlife to interrupt them. Roam our 50 acre country retreat, exploring the fruit orchard; home of the chickens, ducks and geese. Walk through our olive grove and watch the Kangaroos grazing in the back paddock. Spend time with the horses; Hugo and Pixie, the cows; including our new calf, watch our silly little goats or make friends with Percy, our pet pig. Alternatively, rug up in front of the fireplace with a good book and a hot chocolate, or why not get yourself a glass of that great local wine and sit on your private verandah watching the sun go down whilst the local kangaroos graze freely in the paddock.With so much to do for families and children, this is one holiday you'll never forget! ... more   less
