'Pips on Bank' is an historic cottage built in 1867 that we have renovated with the desire to ensure your stay is comfortable, inspiring and one to remember.

We have maintained the original features of the cottage including the very low doorways in the rear bedrooms, please remember to 'duck' and brought them to the 21st century with a little eclectic styling and artistic flair.

Pips on Bank boasts 2 Queen Bedrooms and another with 2 single beds, all with new beds, furnishings and luxurious linens. Our cosy lounge offers an open fireplace to relax by on a winter weekend with a wine and a good book from our small but growing library. Games, DVDs, activities are also available for your entertainment. A HD TV and a fabulous Bluetooth sound system along with free WiFi, quietly blend into the ambiance and only add to your holiday comfort.

We offer a light filled kitchen with all of the conveniences required for preparing wonderful meals or simply a fabulous morning coffee. Please feel free to use the herbs that are in season in our kitchen garden. The dining room features the stone wall and fireplace from the original cottage kitchen and through the french doors will open your dining experience out to the alfresco. Outdoor furniture and BBQ are available for sunny breakfasts or balmy evening get togethers. The backyard provides an abundance of lounging on the lawn space, or the perfect area for a family cricket match

Our bathroom offers both a spacious shower and freestanding bath for your convenience and enjoyment.


Port Fairy would have to be considered the jewel of the South West Coast, only 250km from Melbourne CBD and easily accessible by rail and bus. There is no excuse not to visit for a short break or a longer week of summer fun.

Pips on Bank is located 500m from the first of many hotels and restaurants. Continue a little further and you will find cafes, bakeries and a lovely little shopping village. It is the perfect stroll to a deliberately slow and luxurious brunch on a weekend, or an easy distance to walk to dinner and enjoy a drink

We are located between the two popular beaches and wharf precinct where a popular local market is held and close to the public transport routes.

Everything is accessible by foot when staying at Pips on Bank. A great excuse to park the car in the drive and walk or, alternatively bring along your bikes for easy riding and exploring.


Port Fairy is part of the Shipwreck coast and offers an abundance of exciting history, wonderful landscapes and beautiful architecture. From the charming Bluestone cottages like ours to the rugged and treacherous coastline of 'The Crags' there is never a shortage of attractions.

Summer fun at the two pristine and patrolled beaches, cycling along the bike trail to Koroit, discovering the lighthouse and Shearwater Colony, fishing, surfing or wandering through the village and pausing at an award winning cafe or restaurant on your stroll home....... a stay at Pips on Bank will offer a relaxing and comfortable base for all of your activities.

Come and enjoy the galleries, the markets, the Port Fairy Folk Festival or 'Winter Weekends' all of which contribute to the inspiring and creative nature of the town and its people ......we can't wait to meet you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful cottage We enjoyed our stay very much over Easter! The beds and bedding are so comfortable, we all slept so well after spending our days walking around beautiful Port Fairy. The open fire, claw foot bath and lovely styling makes the cottage feel so cosy and homely, we can't wait to return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cottage Pips on Bank is a very comfortable, cosy, well-equipped cottage which was perfect for our week in Port Fairy. Has a lovely yard with outdoor eating area and is only a very short stroll into town and to the beach. We loved not needing to use the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sublime Leanne (our host ) has thought of everything. The beds were so comfortable, the linens were top rate and the house was spotless.The shower was top rate and the dvds our kids really appreciated. Communication was excellent. The only thing I would change would be the oven as it was slow to heat but believe Leanne is working on that.I love to cook... Port Fairy was a lovely break and we walked everywhere which was relaxing in itself.. Leanne has "nailed It" and thoroughly understands what people are looking for in getaway. Highly recommend this host and this unique cottage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Port Fairy cottage We had a great stay at Pips on Bank, a cute bluestone cottage, with modern extension. The place was immaculate and very nicely styled. a short walk down to the main shops and wharf, and we were there for the fort nightly local market next to the information centre. A great place, would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice house in a good location It's a very neat house with details full of love. A good accommodation away from stress but feeling like home. It's close to the town centre - very convenient if you don't want to cook.
