We booked this accommodation because we wanted some time out, away from the hustle and bustle, little did we know that we could have that and the opportunity to fill every day with adventure. From the onset both Barb and Barry made everything easy. We have 2 dogs and they were welcomed also.
The property has been very thoughtfully renovated, and all you really need to bring with you is your food and clothes, and there is even a bountiful vegie patch.
We arrived late on a cold dark night to a lovely warm house, with the fire already built. Bruce took the time to show us how to use the appliances in the house and to answer any questions.
In the morning we awoke to a awe inspiring country backdrop, alpacas and a cemetery full of history. I do recommend taking the time to read the history manuals regarding the school, the butter factory and on Drik Drik its self.
The area itself offers majestic forests, the beautiful Glenelg River, abundance of wild life and for the keen the Great South West Walk. Drik Drik is centrally located with very easy drives to Portland, Heywood, Mt Gambier and the Limestone Coast. The nearby township of Dartmoor is worth dropping into and looking at all the carvings that line the main street and the village green.
We are already planning our next visit, and next time we will stay even longer.

We enjoyed a wonderful family weekend at the Old School House. Barb and Bruce were most hospitable hosts and we were provided with all you could require. We also enjoyed a walk along a nearby section of the Great South West Walk alongside the banks of the Glenelg. . We look forward to a return visit!
