What's At Our Place

When did life stop being so gloriously simple?

Breathe in the fresh air and absorb the peaceful bush setting; sit back with a good book, soft music and a glass of wine. Relax by the wood fire, on the verandah or around your own private winter campfire. Don't forget the marshmallows!

Wander the bush tracks on the property or hop over the stile to gain access to the fabulous Otway Forest Park and walk for miles.

We are delighted to have you stay and will welcome you on arrival with home-made treats.

Your dogs are very welcome at Countrywide - they will love the bush tracks, a cool swim in the dam and the home made doggie- treats and cosy beds that welcome them on arrival. We proudly hold the 5 Paws Rating for Best Pet Friendly accommodation from Holidaying with Dogs 2008 - 2010 and 2010 - 2012

Try your luck at catching some yabbies in our fully stocked dam. You may even catch enough for dinner.

Children are welcome to come and meet the animals. We have a bundle of sheep and sometimes a hand- reared lamb or two, as well as our cute lop-eared bunnies for children to play with. Our chickens will do their best to keep up the egg supply to ensure you enjoy a taste of their wonderful free range lifestyle - eggs are finders keepers

Check out the recreation area with a pool table and dart board in the "pub" and a gas BBQ undercover in the "saddlery" next door. There?s plenty of room to kick the footy or bowl a few overs.

Countrywide Cottages is proud to be a part of the Otway Harvest Trail - surrounded by superb wineries, cafes, berry picking farms and of course the Great Ocean Road, the Otway Fly, beaches, waterfalls and picnic spots. With lots of great day trips to choose from, it?s an excellent place to stay and far enough away from the tourist crowds to be an authentic, tranquil Australian bush experience. Fabulous!

Sit back and relax. You deserve it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fabulous, modern and well equipped cottage or rather condo!!It had all the nice peaceful touches that one would expect in a 5 star resort. The kids and dogs couldn't believe what we had booked ourselves into! The homemade dog and kids cookies, the dogs enclosure, the kids entertainment and most of all our own personal bush tranquility!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The concern for so many little details shows how the owner cares so much to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience. The cottage is sublime; Ned's place, yabbies fishing and feed the farm animals made the joy of the children; all this in a peaceful, beautiful bush environment. The dogs, too, were delighted. We will definitively come back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our experience with CountryWide Cottages has been outstanding. On both occasions we have stayed there we have had an enjoyable and extremely relaxing time. Our 2 dogs were in heaven with so much to explore and a fire to snooze at after.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Countrywide cottages at Bambra was very well presented with all cottages a private distance apart and with different themes. Ours was very clean, well stocked with firewood and the kids had a great time. Plenty of animals to pat and yabbying to attempt in the dam.
