Guests from Singapore to Santa Fe, Manila to Melbourne, all have raved about Bellevue Farmstay, nestled in a hillside at Scotts Creek in Victoria's South West.
With majestic views from all rooms, this self-contained farm house on a working farm has three bedrooms, large lounge and family rooms -with additional sofa beds, a dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen. Plus, a wood-burning heater, spa bath and private outdoor pool. Families and large groups love the rumpus porch for kids with chalkboard wall, Lego and totem tennis. The optional breakfast basket is brimming with farm fresh eggs, a variety of cereals, milk, juice, tea, coffee, sugar and condiments.
Meet Nikki the Golden Retriever (a city girl now adapting to country life), Tess the Border Collie, Penny the Siamese cat, Sam and Annie the pet sheep and Acca the goat. The alpacas are Fred, Nugget, Innie and Bazza. Awaiting a carrot is Franny the horse who looks forward to visits from guests. Plus you will likely run into native wildlife (koalas, echidnas, kookaburras and kangaroos) on the walking trails.
An easy two and a half hour drive or train ride from Melbourne, Bellevue Farmstay is just 20 minutes from the breathtaking Great Ocean Road and world-famous Shipwreck Coast featuring the spectacular Twelve Apostles, Port Campbell National Park and the Bay of Islands at Peterborough. Just 10 minutes to the Timboon Township and its cheese, ice-cream, seasonal strawberries, local wines and beers. Walk or cycle off these indulgences with the Timboon to Camperdown Rail Trail. Half an hour away are the amazing volcanic lakes and craters at Camperdown or the magnificent ferns and soaring forests of the Great Otway National Park.
