About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay2 nights
Situated just outside the town of Birregurra and only 3km from award winning Brae restaurant. Our 2 bedroom architecturally designed home sits on 2.5 acres of native gardens, vegetable beds, fruit trees and grassy areas and is surrounded by farmland on all sides, with a long sweeping view to the Otways.
The house is arranged so that 2 bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house and each has an ensuite bathroom. One bedroom has a queen futon bed, the other a double with an osteopaedic mattress. If needed and on request, there is a spare double futon mattress and linen for the living room floor (although bathroom access is via either bedroom so this may not suit all groups). We also have a portable cot and cot linen on request.
An open fire place in the living room is wonderful in winter. The open dining room seats 6. Floor to ceiling windows throughout the house give magical glimpses of the gardens and fields beyond, including the occasional rainbow, kangaroo, herd of cows or sheep and the Otway ranges. We also have wireless internet, books and magazines galore, a stash of dvds and games for young and old. The kitchen has all the herbs and spices, vinegars and bits and bobs we use which are available to guests if they need.
The perfect place for a couple, family or friends to retreat to and explore the Great Ocean Road and Otways. Or book into the award winning Brae restaurant, book a ride with Birregurra car service and enjoy an amazing weekend away.
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.

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!
A great place.
It was really relaxing here. I loved the countryside. Would stay here again.
Everything you could want!
An amazing house and garden, just right for a relaxing stay. Beautiful bath products for pampering and a lovely deck area to relax on. Everything you need is provided and more. Thanks so much we loved it and will definitely recommend it to our friends.
Great weekend escape!
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.
