This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.
Leitham Guesthouse is a farmstay on the edge of the Otways. Set amongst a gorgeous garden, gums and hills in the background, your wing in the residence of 'Leitham' is spacious, comfortable and private. Whether a couple, a family or a group of friends, we can accommodate you! Picnic in the garden, have a hit of tennis, go for a walk down our country lane. A 10 minute drive from Brae. Perfect to use as a base to explore the nearby towns, beaches, bushwalking and bike trails.

The space
Leitham is a tranquil retreat on the edge of the Otways. Set amongst a gorgeous garden, your separate wing of our farmhouse is spacious, comfortable and totally private. Whether you are a couple, family, or group of friends, we are able to accommodate you!

With separate entrance, your wing is fully self-contained. Relax in the light-filled kitchen/living space. This is fully equipped with stovetop, oven, microwave, fridge, kettle, toaster, pots/pans and everything you might need if having a cook up! (Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, provided). The space is cosy and inviting, with a dining table, as well as sofas to curl up on with a good book. There is a TV and DVD player, as well as some books to keep you entertained.

Fresh local bread, butter, jam, milk, eggs, muesli, yoghurt, as well as tea and coffee supplied.

Wake up to the sounds of the abundant local birdlife and the occasional bellowing of a cow. There are two enormous bedrooms (one with a king bed and one with a queen bed) both with modern ensuites. There are also another two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other with a double bed and single bed), and main bathroom with separate toilet, shower and featuring a claw foot bath.

Walk around the garden, explore a little further and breathe in the fresh country air walking down one of the lanes or have a hit of tennis on our court (balls provided but please BYO racquets). Or simply sit on the wide verandah and relax with a cup of tea or a cheese platter and local bottle of wine!

Located just 10 minutes from Birregurra, Forrest and Deans Marsh, 30 minutes from Lorne and 50 minutes from Apollo Bay, there is so much to do! Bush walks, cycling trails, beaches, food and wine galore! We love the area we live in and are happy to provide recommendations.

We are lucky to be a quick 10 minute drive from internationally renowned restaurant Brae, in Birregurra.

Leitham Guesthouse would be an ideal pre-wedding accommodation for bride and bridesmaids- the light filled sitting room is perfect for hair and make up!

Come and enjoy the peace and quiet, and what our small farm has to offer. Feel free to wander around the garden, visit the chooks, goats and cows!

Guest access
Guests are welcome to walk around the garden, use the outdoor furniture, play tennis on the court (byo racquets) and see the animals!

*It can get cold here… come prepared with your winter woollies!

Barwon Downs, Victoria, Australia

We are perfectly situated to explore and enjoy the Otways! We are in between two gorgeous little towns, Birregurra and Forrest- 10 minutes drive to each. This also means we are the perfect option if you are dining at Brae.
Bring (or hire from Forrest) bicycles and enjoy the many bike tracks around Forrest. Walk to and around Lake Elizabeth. Have a beer at the Forrest Brewery or a coffee and homemade sausage roll from the Forrest General Store. Visit Platypi Cafe to taste their delicious homemade chocolate and cafe fare and great coffee. You'll find good pub grub at the Royal Mail in Birregurra. Drive to Lorne to the beach, or even to Apollo Bay.

My wife Catherine and I moved to a small farm on the edge of the beautiful Otways in 2016. We love using airbnb as guests, and are excited to now be hosts, offering Leitham Guesthouse as a tranquil retreat!
