Description

We offer a new alternative in Otways Accommodation.

Perfect for couples, families, large groups or special occasions.

Resplendent against the valley hillside, our 3 family friendly cottages enjoy sweeping views of the spectacular & tranquil Pennyroyal Valley, offering a corridor into The Otway Ranges.

This country property is an ideal place to relax and unwind with no traffic and plenty of space to breathe. The long verandas are perfect for summer siestas, whilst the wood burning fires make winter escapes a cosy delight. Our 60 acres embraces both native forest and rolling farm land with Alpacas, Sheep, Goats, Kangaroos and many native birds & animals calling us home.

We encourage you to picnic by the lake and wander the grounds. The lush expanse of flat grassy land around the lake provides the perfect place for a game of cricket , a lazy afternoon lunch, yabby fishing or simply dozing in an outdoor chair under a shady willow tree.

This peaceful country setting will renew and inspire you. We encourage our guests to experience a slower, quieter, more connected time with nature, away from the hectic pace of the everyday world.

Location

Pennyroyal is only 90 min from Melbourne (via new ring road) and just 20 minutes inland from Lorne once on the Deans Marsh Lorne Rd, The Great Ocean Road and its surrounding beaches.

Pennyroyal Otways Retreat is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little big piece of psradisse I said I'll be back and 2 years on I'm back here at the Pennyroyal Otways Retreat. Brought 2 other Singaporean families along this time and we all had a blast! The Farmhouse had spaces and rooms in every corner. There were 6 adults and 6 kids and we never were short of space for meals or games or just lounging. The air is fresh, the views magnificent. The kids had fun with the Alpacas. Not quite sure it was fun for the Alpacas though. 2 sheep that were really shy and we never managed to get close enough to them. Saw kangaroos in the distance across the valley on the other side. Wood fire kept us warm, with additional help from standalone heaters. The King parrots visited us every morning. We all miss this piece of paradise so much. We'll be back!!! Again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning and so relaxing Such a beautiful spot and a cosy little cottage with everything you could want at your fingertips. My husband enjoyed stoking the fire on the cool evenings. The alpacas are gorgeous and my daughter enjoyed picking fresh apples and hand feeding them. Plenty to do in the surrounding area including the Great Ocean Rd and the strawberry picking a pleasant walk away. Beds super comfy and warm with the curtains left open to awake to a serene misty view of the valley. Definately recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful place to stay. The cottage had everything we needed. The views are sensational and it was lovely sitting out on the deck in the evenings. The children had a great time down at the lake, visiting the animals and paddling around in the boat. They also appreciated the selection of in house movies after a long day at the beach. We would love to come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cottage and the serene environment was super. Completely isolated from the hustle and bustle of the city yet still able to enjoy creature comforts of a perfectly comfy home, plush cushions, sofas and beds, movies, music, log fires, well-appointed kitchen, hot baths etc. All of us, young and old enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Adequate space indoors for the kids, abundant space for exploration outdoors. Big tree fell across the gate but lumberjacks came pretty swiftly to clear the way for us. Brand new experience we could laugh about in spite of being stuck. Spent time with the alpacas and sheep down in the valley. Sheep came to visit on and off. Birds too. The sound of the wild, the cool breeze, the rustling of the leaves.... MAN! I MISS THE PLACE SO MUCH!!! My kids call it the Farmer's Hotel and still talk about it ever so often. We will definitely be back. Have told lotsa friends about this magical place. Thank you Sara and Jason for your hospitality and kindness in making this stay possible. We wish you all the best for 2013.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a fabulous weekend at Pennyroyal and highly recommend it for a weekend escape. The cottages are well equipped, beds are comfy and there are hundreds of movies to watch or just read a book by the fire. The kids loved being able to explore the property, get muddy and just enjoy the freedom of being kids. Even the dog had great weekend.Thank you Jason and Sara, we had a great time and we will definitely be back.
