Spacious, extremely comfortable & very well equipped 2 BR house - Amazing views
About Richard Crawley
Hi there, I'm Richard and I'm the owner of Tower Hill House. THH was initially set up by my wife Carol and for many years was run by her, with my help - It was her creative flair and enthusiastic attention to detail that made everything so great - Tower Hill House is genuinely extremely comfortable: spacious and very well-equipped. However, a few years ago the unthinkable happened and Carol passed away. Since then I have continued to do what I know she would have liked most… and that is to provide at THH the very best for guests. I am also a musician and a photographer. I've exhibited widely and my photographs are on the walls at Tower Hill House. Having lived in this beautiful part of Southwest Victoria for many years I can provide you with all the information you could ever need for a really great holiday or short break... Come and stay!
Richard Crawley purchased this House in 2002
Why Richard Crawley chose Tower Hill
Tower Hill House is a wonderful place to stay… Spacious, very well-equipped and comfortable, it also has fantastic views over 15 km of farmland and the Southern Ocean. From the 6 acre garden and you can also walk straight into the Tower Hill Nature Reserve, which is a wonderland with kilometres of stimulating and interesting walks. Not surprisingly wildlife abounds… Kangaroos, Wallabies, Wedge tailed eagles, Koala bears etc. You are also only three minutes to the nearest deserted beach - which is also dog friendly all year, unlike Port Fairy and Warrnambool. Tower Hill house is within an easy distance of so many attractions - the Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles, the Grampians, the seal colony at Bridgwater Bay near Portland, are all at a leisurely day trip. And over winter the Southern Right whales arrive at Logan’s Beach, Warrnambool. A few minutes drive away are award-winning restaurants, shops and the heritage of both Port Fairy and Warrnambool. Perfect for a short break or holiday!
What makes this House unique
At Tower Hill House you're not in town! Wonderful though both Port Fairy and Warrnambool are, they are also extremely busy at peak periods. For instance when 40,000 people are visiting Port Fairy for the annual folk festival, at Tower Hill you wouldn't even know the festival was running. And from THH it is only in a few minutes drive into either town. The Tower Hill Nature Reserve is an iconic landmark. For thousands of years this area has been spiritually of great significance to the local Aboriginal Gungidamara clan, and in the nature reserve it is really worth also visiting the very good information centre - the building itself is of interest being architecturally designed by Robin Boyd - brother to Arthur Boyd, the painter. I can guarantee you a very restful and peaceful holiday at THH. You can stretch out on the sundrenched north facing verandah, laze inside in front of the woodheater looking out over 15 kms of ocean, or you can visit groovy Port Fairy and all the attractions roundabout. To be honest you really do get the best of both worlds here! PS There is also a fully enclosed sheltered outdoor dog area for four footed friends.

great house for a getaway
Cosy, with everything we needed. A home away from home. Lovely setting on the edge of the park, a beautiful place to walk and run. Richard could not have been more welcoming or helpful.
What more could we want for a relaxing getaway. All that you could ask for was accommodated by Richard and his house. Beautiful surrounds,
lots to see. Highly recommended.
