A Yarra Valley escape in a cosy, secluded cottage surrounded by nature. Viv’s Cottage is perfect for a couple on a romantic getaway, a group of friends as a base to explore the Yarra Valley, or for a nature loving family.
Situated on a working farm, you will have complete privacy as you look over the grazing cattle below the cottage with the owners living on a separate property – although still nearby should you require assistance.
Located at the end of a gravel road you’ll truly feel far away from it all while only being a short drive from all that the region offers.
Featuring spectacular views over a local vineyard, wander the tracks meandering through the 50 acres of bush land and explore gullies teaming with wildlife.
You’re likely to spot the black wallaby, lyrebird, echidna, wombat, wedge tail eagle, kangaroo and if you’re lucky a platypus.
The cottage is simple and comfortable with luxurious bedding and appointments.
There is an expansive deck to enjoy the view while listening to the bird song and soaking up the complete serenity.
Below the house you’ll find an atmospheric fire pit area to sit and contemplate the day.
Inside is a wood heater and a reverse cycle split system.
Our location is the perfect base to explore the towns of Warburton, Healesville and Gembrook with the famous vineyards of the Yarra Valley only a short drive away.
