Our property is part of a working sheep and cropping farm. Guests are welcome to observe seasonal activities. We also have several of our own pets that love having new visitors.

We recommend friends meet at our halfway house on the Adel - Melb highway or have a stopover on the long road between our 2 beautiful cities. We have lovely wide open spaces for those energetic family members to run whether it be the 4 or 2 legged type. Set back off the highway we are easy to find but far enough not to hear the traffic.

Why JO EDWARDS chose Wolseley

DISCOUNT OFFERED FOR CHILDREN - We love having kids on the farm and we find they love it too. Unfortunately, Homeaway does not give discount rates for children, we do, please let us know and we can adjust the price on your inquiry.

What makes this cottage unique

Come and experience what living on a farm is like, enjoy our wide open spaces. Feed the chickens and collect the eggs, feed and pat the dogs, see the sheep in the paddocks, enjoy our abundance of birdlife.

wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

what wonderful people Jo & Jamie are, warm, welcoming and wonderful... Both were there to meet and welcome us and all of us couldn't believe we had the same car as theirs... so picture time with all 3 on the lawn. It was lovely to relax on the front veranda with a cold beer and cheese platter and loved the animals, the cottage is perfect and accommodates all your needs. Both Jo & Jamie said we could leave whenever we liked on sunday which was great knowing we had extra time and did not have to rush.

We will definitely be back!!!! Thank you for such an enjoyable time.

warm regards Kay & Friends

Real country stay

  • 5 of 5

We only had one night but wished we had a few more. This was a lovely taste of the country, with wonderful bird life, stars and trees. The cottage is clean, cosy and cute, and has that authentic country feel with a big table in the kitchen and plenty of supplies. Hope to be back!
