“The first time I lived on the farm, the house was on a cow farm, and next to the main house, optus had a 4g signal. Linda is very enthusiastic. There are prepared milk jams, honey and fruits in the refrigerator, as well as many kinds of cereals, which is equivalent to giving away breakfast. Where we cook rice, Linda will be very enthusiastic and provide us with the missing things. The house has air conditioning and electric blankets, and the hot water pressure is also very large. At night, the starry sky is very nice, and you can see the Milky Way, which is much more cost-effective than spending a thousand dollars alone to live in the online stargazing room. The dogs on the farm are very cute, like the long-legged Corgi, who will run over to find out for themselves. The farm is also very large and may see small animals native to Australia.”

“My friends and I spent the AFL Grand Final public holiday weekend at Blauvelt Park. We knew we were probably in for something special (a maze in the back garden kinda gives you that impression), but we were still blown away by it all. The library is beautiful. (I'm ashamed to say that I'd forgotten how calming it is to be surrounded by books, and to actually read a real book just for the pleasure of it). All the bedrooms are unique and fabulous (so no dramas if you arrive last). And the moment you walk into the kitchen, you know you're in a real home (right down to the impressively stocked, and meticulously-labelled, pantry). I loved the corridor covered in family photos, the wall-to-wall paintings, and quirky mix of (what felt like to my untrained eyes!) rare/exotic antique pieces with up-cycled crafts/furniture. This place is lovely. All you need to know is that Ashley and Christopher have fashioned a house that is grand, yet homely; stylish and magnificent while still full of warmth and quirky character. And that you should stay here. It truly is a very memorable and special place, and I feel privileged to have been a guest. :-)”
Situated on our 140 acre farm “Cambus Glen” near the settlement of Framlingham in South-West Victoria, the Shearers’ Cottage is a fully renovated sheep shearers accommodation. The Scottish name “Cambus Glen” means valley where a twisting river passes. This refers to our 2km of Hopkins River frontage – Scottish because the farm is home to our small fold (or herd) of Highland Cattle.
“WOW - We just fell in love with this cottage and enjoyed every minute. The hosts are very nice and helpful. They showed us their cows and different walking tracks where you can see wild koalas in the trees. You can do day trips to the Great Ocean Road as it isn't far away from this place. Our favorites were the great view from the cottage (including a BBQ) as well as the fire place in the house. We would always come back!”
