The Farmers Cottage

The Farmers Cottage

A 1940s farm workers cottage in the middle of the working sheep farm.



2 bedrooms – a Queen bedroom and Twin bedroom (which has 2  King Single beds). We use natural fibres for a naturally good sleep with Australian made wool-filled pillows, quilts and underlays. Complemented with quality linen and the smell of fresh flowers.


Birregurra is a quiet little district with great food connections. Find great produce in the homestead gardens, at local farmgate stalls and at nearby Birregurra Farm Foods and Provedore, then cook up your local produce bounty in the full country kitchen with wood & electric ovens.

Or for something truly remarkable, eat out at acclaimed Brae Restaurant by Dan Hunter – we can arrange transfers for you to and from Brae in our classic car to create a memorable country experience. Look for the “Restaurant Transfers” available as an optional extra in the booking page.


Take in the surrounds on our 15 minute Farm Walking Trail. Meet a few of our famous Polwarth sheep and

Be daring and leave the front gate to discover the little nuggets of goodness in the Otways. Small-scale wineries, breweries and cider makers. Farm shops. Art galleries. Suprisingly good food and coffee. Lush waterfall walks. Soaring timbers.

The Great Ocean Road is 40 minutes away at Lorne and will inspire even the most regular visitors.


Sometimes you just don’t want to do anything.

So light up the open wood fire, pour a local shiraz, watch a DVD, read one of the books in your “to read” pile and sprawl out on the sofa.

Crafty folk will also enjoy getting stuck into our famous Polwarth wool and yarns and create something at the source.

Rates start at $185 for 2 guests for 1 night.
