Where Tranquility Finds You...

Pennyroyal Farm boasts several fully self-contained, purpose-built holiday cottages. Most feature soaring timber ceilings and unusual wavy-edged cypress timber cladding and kitchen benches.

**There is only one cottage with a hot tub on the balcony. This is Acacia Cottage. If this is your preference, please make a note on your booking enquiry. It will be allocated if available**

* "Your attention to detail is what makes our stay here so special and made us want to come back —Thank you. Our dog was impressed too."

* "The cottages are beautiful and set up perfectly. Perfect place for holidaying with dogs. We didn't want to go home." ( In dog morse this is: woof woof, wag wag.)

* "Excellent standard. Extremely comfortable and spacious. Most amazing bed I've ever slept on. Everything beautiful and clean in the cottage and very cosy. Especially loved the size of the grounds and fencing. Very secluded and peaceful."

Great views but some work needed

  • 3 of 5

Acacia cottage has a lovely, mainly native garden, and big windows & verandah to enjoy the wonderful valley views. But the standard was let down by water-damaged ceilings, especially in the ensuite bathroom, (no fan) where there was mould. The fridge door seal was falling off, and water was puddling on the floor. The range hood needs cleaning. The corrugated gravel road from town needs grading for easier access.

Perfect Family Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely peaceful time at Pennyroyal Cottages. I was so impressed at how well set up the property was for our dog. A lovely spot in the edge of the Otways with plenty to explore.
