Please note that 24 hours notice is required for booking. The cottage is unsuitable for children or pets

Forest Cottage is a perfect romantic retreat for couples to sample country living by the coast. Just one and a half hours from Melbourne, it is located on a spacious two acre property, surrounded by gum trees and natural bushland, and features an abundance of native bird life list available on request. You will be able to relax in comfort

The cedar studio, set amongst gardens, shares its off street parking with the main residence. The queen sized bed comes with cotton sheets and a downy doona. The ensuite bathroom has a shower, towels, and complementary toiletries are provided. Facilities include TV with DVD, refrigerator, microwave, double hotplate, mini toaster oven, electric skillet, rice cooker, kettle, crockery, cook ware, and cutlery. Plunger coffee, a variety of teas, milk, and a welcome treat are provided for your pleasure. If you have any dietary restrictions, please let me know. LPG gas heating and an electric blanket ensure your comfort in the cooler months. The shady verandas and a ceiling fan keep the cottage cool in the summer.

As well as the native animals on our property, such as possums, echidnas, and parrots we have two much loved cats. As our home is separated from the cottage by only gardens and woodland, we respectfully, but firmly, ask you to leave your own pets at home.

From the cosiness of your cottage a myriad of possibilities awaits you. The world class surfing venue of Bells Beach is a 15 minute walk away. Visit the pristine sands or walk the Surf Coast trails that extend for miles along our spectacular coastline. Only minutes away by car, Jan Juc, Torquay, and Point Addis have golden beaches boasting magnificent scenery and often perfect waves Many other activities are close at hand, including fine dining, wineries, golf courses where kangaroos share the fairways with the locals, the Surf Museum, and much, much more

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Stayz Experience yet! Lorna and John where great hosts to the very sweet cottage in the forest. The photos on their Stayz website does not do justice, it is even better in person and it has been done up a little more since their last photos. I loved every minute spent here. The location was perfect among the wildlife, sleeping to the calming sounds of frogs and waking up to the calls of local birds was truly wonderful. The house was just the right size, with a great balcony that gets the great morning sunlight. We first entered with a lovely care package that catered to our request of being vegan. Equipped with everything we needed from pots, plates, travel guides and even card games. I couldn't have asked for a better place to relax for before and after our running event down the coast. Highly recommend. If I were to come down by the Victorian beaches again will definitely love to stay hear again. Thank you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Time We loved the forest cottage property. It was perfect for a couple looking to get away from the city. Torquay is a great little town with plenty to look at and do. There are plenty of nearby beaches and surd breaks to keep you occupied!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peaceful, very comfortable - can't wait to go back We had a wonderful stay at Forest Cottage, Lorna really goes out of her way to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible, and she is great to deal with through the booking process. The cottage is so peaceful, we loved the deck looking out into the bush, if you love wildlife this is the place for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Gem We had a fantastic week at Forest Cottage. Lorna was very welcoming and generous. If we needed anything she was available to help. The cottage was very comfortable and secluded. However we were able to walk to many places. Would love to go back again. Thanks Lorna.
