Welcome to Barking Owl Country Cottage. Bordered by native bush reserves and many kilometers of walking and cycling tracks the Barking Owl is nestled in the rolling hills of the scenic Yarra Valley and has plenty to offer the weekend traveler.

We’re not far from the fast paced life of the city and suburbs but we offer all the benefits of country life. Just a short drive from the CBD or Melbourne Airport will have you arriving at our red farm gates in approximately 45 minutes open to welcome you for a weekend getaway.

A pier sitting out over the dam is perfect to enjoy a local drop and with its beautiful paved stonework and uninterrupted views into the bush the pool area is a great place to relax during the warmer weather.

Barking Owl cottage offers 2 queen size bedrooms and comfortably sleeps 4 people. With a modern kitchen, 2 flat screen TV’s, Blu-ray and DVD, free Wi-Fi, A/C, private courtyard and outdoor bbq we offer all the comforts of home in the tranquility of the country.

We are positioned perfectly to enjoy the wildlife and native bird life on our own property, or to provide a base to explore the Yarra Valley wineries, restaurants and local towns. If our local mob of grazing kangaroos leaves you wanting more then Healesville Sanctuary is not far

A five minute drive up the road and you can enjoy the color and flavors of the famous St Andrews market on Saturday mornings open from 6am to 2pm where free range and organic food is the standard. And a drive to the Yarra Valley Chocolatier in Yarra Glen offers its own taste of heaven for ice cream and chocolate lovers.

Local trail rides are available for the adventurous, as well as balloon rides for those not frightened of an early morning wake-up call.

If you choose to abandon the car keys for the weekend, there are walking tracks from the cottage door that weave their way through the Panton Hill bushland reserves that we’re so proud of. See horse riders and mountain bike riders making the most of a beautiful environment.

Our focus is to provide a warm, comfortable and relaxing environment for our guests. A delicious fresh fruit platter will await your arrival and the clean country air is abundant and free

Our guest cottage is set apart from the main house with its own private access and you can do as much or as little as you like. So if you just want to relax and unwind – Barking Owl cottage has everything you could wish for. As our name suggest “The Barking Owl” is not only our feathered resident but an ode to our four legged residents as well. Gus our very big but gentle Labrador, Esme our mischievous Pug and last but not least the beautiful Miss Audrey the curious and overly friendly resident cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spotless, quiet, modern and welcoming. My husband and I along with our best friends (another couple) have a fantastic long weekend at the The Barking Owl. The cottage has everything you need, even welcoming breakfast basket and condiments. The Australian wildlife was plentiful with kangaroos and rosellas in abundance. Would go back in a heart beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weekend getaway made easier Had an amazing stay at the Barking Owl. The place is equipped with all the essentials that you need. On top of that, fresh fruit and bread were provided. Has a lovely outdoor BBQ accompanied by a stunning view of the rainforest. The owner was a lovely person who made our stay comfortable. The only downside was, the wifi wasn't working. Would highly recommend to people who wants to escape the busy city life and wants to enjoy the nature for the weekend as its just an hour away from the city center.
