Countrywide Cottages are proud of their consistent 5.0 rating from guests on TripAdvisor and its 5 Paws rating for pets. Come and enjoy four star, fully accessible and genuinely pet friendly bushland cottages.

Relax by the wood fire, on the veranda or around your own private campfire (outside CFA fire season only). Wander the bush tracks on the property or hop over the stile to gain access to the fabulous Otway National Park.

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 doggie treats and furniture covers for the couch potatoes make sure your pet feels as welcome as you do. Our cottages are fully fenced for your pet's security and your peace of mind.

Each cottage has an enclosable veranda and three of the four cottages boast huge fenced areas out front for your dogs freedom and your peace of mind. Your dogs will love the bush tracks or a swim in the dam and being away with their best mates.

Try your luck at catching some yabbies in the fully stocked dam. You may even catch enough for dinner.

Bring your children up to meet the animals. Meet the shy but delightful alpacas, lop eared bunnies, and the chickens, who do their best to keep up the egg supply. Eggs are finders keepers.

The undercover recreation area offers a gas barbecue and picnic tables for easy dining. Next door, play a game of pool, table tennis or just stay a while. Lots of room to kick the footy or to bowl a few overs.

Nearby attractions: Otway Harvest Trail, the Great Ocean Road, Lorne, Otway Fly Tree Top Walk, galleries, berry farms, waterfalls, beaches, bushwalks and picnic spots.
