Birregurra Escape Private Getaway

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Situated in the Lorne hinterland with a view of the Otways, this 2 bedroom architecturally designed home sits on 2.5 acres of native gardens, vegetable beds, fruit trees and grassy areas all surrounded by farmland as far as the eye can see.

The 2 bedrooms each have their own ensuite and are at opposite ends of the house, one with a queen bed, the other a double. If needed, there is a spare double futon mattress and linen and also a portable cot. An open fire place in the living room is wonderful in winter. The open dining room seats 6, with a high chair if needed. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the house give magical glimpses of the gardens and fields beyond, including the occasional rainbow, kangaroo, herd of cows and the Otway ranges. We also have wireless internet, books and magazines galore, a stash of dvds and games for young and old.

The perfect place for a couple, family or friends to retreat to and explore the Great Ocean Road and Otways.

We are a 90 minute drive from Melbourne and 5kms from the town of Birregurra. 3km to Brae Restaurant, 30 minutes to the beaches of Lorne, Angelsea and Aireys Inlet and 40 minutes to Apollo Bay.

The property used to be the site of Ripplevale Primary School and the present home was built in 2001.

Magical experience

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from two nights at the Birregurra Escape and we had a gem of a time. The perfect accommodation for two couples or a family, we loved sitting by the fire playing Articulate (from the wide range of board games on offer) and drinking wine. We went to Brae on night one for a magical dinner, but I think we had even more fun dancing round the lounge on night 2. A garden worthy of exploring and a tree that looked very climb-uppable (we restrained ourselves due to the downward climb and our advanced years). A fully stoked kitchen with a lovely lay-out made dining at home as easy as dining out. Do yourself a favour and check it out!

Great weekend escape!

  • 5 of 5

A brilliant place to relax before and after a meal at Brae. Tom was a great host and prepared the cottage perfectly, with a more than ample supply of fresh, local foods for breakfast. It was clean and private with lots of space to spread out or curl up infront of the open fire. Plenty of advice and info given on the activities to do around the Otways, as well opportunities to learn more about the history of the Dennis family sheep farm over a cup of tea. We highly recommend and would stay there again.
