Rated 3 out of 5 by from A peaceful getaway We enjoyed our stay here - very peaceful retreat. The upstairs room is huge and worked well as a kids play room and bed room (there aren't actually any doors to the bedrooms, so they may be out of sight but they're not out of earshot).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great escape from the city We would like to thank Bruce and his wife for their hospitality. They let us get up close to the sheep and gave us an educational tour on their day to day activities on the farm. If you're looking for an escape from the city then Parla Gully is the place to go. It was an easy drive to nearby towns. I loved having the property to ourselves without a neighbour or car driving past in sight. It was peaceful and relaxing sitting in the spa and listening to the natural local surrounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place to relax. The place has everything you need to forget about work and just relax. The spa is great after being out all day on a cold winter day. Bruce, the host, is very helpful and easy to communicate with. If you drive around after dark, watch for kangaroos on the road!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great country / bush getaway We just returned from a 4 night stay at Parla Gully, had a wonderful stay accessing the neighbouring Otways state forest from the property boundary. Cottage is as new, super clean! With an awesome 2 person spa bath to relax in at the end of each day, lovely quality facilities. Kids had fun exploring the surrounds, as we did trail riding! We will definitely be going back, thank you Bruce!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful views. Very comfortable and well equipped. Listed as Winchelsea south in the GPS, but easy to follow directions supplied anyway. We enjoyed a very beautiful couple of days away. Excellent weekend escape.Thank you!
