Guests from Singapore to Santa Fe, Manila to Melbourne, all rave about Bellevue Farmstay, nestled in a hillside at Scotts Creek in Victoria's South West. With majestic views from all rooms, our self-contained farm house on this working family farm has three bedrooms, large lounge and family rooms (with additional sofa beds), a dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen. Plus, a wood-burning heater and spa bath. Families and large groups love the rumpus porch for kids with chalkboard wall, Leggo and totem tennis.
Meet our pets: Nikki (Golden Retriever), Tess (Border Collie), Rani (Siamese cat), Innie, Fred, Bazza and Monty (alpacas), Sam, Annie and Freckles (all sheep who think they are dogs after being mothered by Nikki). Both Acca (goat) and Frannie (the retired eventing horse) love treats of apples and carrots, as do our sister pigs Cookie and Pinky. Our latest arrival is Alana, the orphan camel calf. Plus you will likely run into native wildlife (koalas, echidnas, kookaburras and kangaroos) on the walking trails.
An easy 2 1/2 hour drive (or train ride) from Melbourne, we are just 20 minutes from the breathtaking Great Ocean Road and world-famous Shipwreck Coast featuring the spectacular Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge, Port Campbell National Park, London Bridge and the Bay of Islands at Peterborough. Pick your own delicious strawberries at the nearby Timboon township, famous for the historic Timboon to Camperdown Rail Trail. Tour the amazing volcanic lakes and craters at Camperdown or the magnificent ferns and soaring forests of the Great Otway National Park.
So join gregarious hosts Wendy and Warren Couch, the fourth generation owners of Bellevue, to enjoy the views, take a bush walk with some wildlife, map out some day trips around our magnificent region or just simply relax.
