Lovely farmstay, great for families

We had a lovely weekend at freshwater creek cottages. Our children loved feeding the animals and exploring the farm on bikes. It's close to Torquay and an easy drive from Melbourne. Our 7 year old son keeps asking when are we going back!

Fantastic Farm Stay.

Pros: Everything!
Location: There was so much to do that we didn't explore the area at all, but that was the kind of holiday we were after.
"Can we come here again next holidays Mum?" We hadn't even left before I was being asked that! Our stay at Freshwater Creek Cottages was everything I had hoped for in a farm stay holiday. The children had a ball feeding the animals and helping the farmer. When they weren't doing that, they were tearing around on bikes, spotting wild life and making new friends. They were outside from the moment they woke up until darkness fell. Despite the cold nights we were always snug in our cottage, which contained everything you could possibly want for a comfortable holiday. The kitchen was very well equipped and the laundry facilities were a fantastic bonus. The friendly, relaxed atmosphere created by the hosts was wonderful and they are to be congratulated on the fantastic place they have created. I would definitely recommend Freshwater Creek Cottages and I know my children would return there in a heartbeat.

Hi Lou, Thank you for the wonderful review. The view from Woodcutters Cottage is lovely. Best place on the property in my opinion is on the two sun loungers out the front of Woodcutters, overlooking the olive grove. So peaceful!! Hope we impressed you enough to come back again!. Kind regards Marissa

Hi Franziska, So glad you and your lovely family got to enjoy our property. The bikes are just as much of a hit as the feeding of the animals!! Hope you can come visit again soon. Kind regards Marissa
