Come and enjoy four star, fully accessible and genuinely pet friendly bushland cottages at Countrywide Cottages.

Located a short drive from the Great Ocean road, relax by the wood fire or wander the bush tracks on the property or hop over the stile to gain access to the fabulous Otway National Park.

The four self contained cottages are spread across 16 acres of bushland and are very well spaced from each other, offering an absolute sense of privacy.

Countrywide Cottages has proudly held the Five Paws rating for Best Pet Friendly accommodation from Holidaying with Dogs since 2008.

The cosy dog beds, home made dog treats and furniture covers for the couch potatoes, all make sure your pet feels as welcome as you do. The cottages boast huge fully fenced yards for your pets' freedom and security as well as your peace of mind. Your dogs will love the bush tracks or a swim in the dam and being away with their best mates.

Nearby attractions include Otway Harvest Trail, the Great Ocean Road, and Lorne.

Countrywide Cottages was voted by guests into the Hall of Fame of the Certificate of Excellence on TripAdvisor in June 2015.
