About this property

The Old Shearing Shed

Romantic farm stay in Apollo Bay
Perched high above the quiet township of Apollo Bay, this modest yet surprisingly well presented converted shearing shed has everything to offer when you're looking for that place that's just that little bit different. Tranquil, peaceful and serene are words that spring to mind when one describes this lovely property. Sit back and relax to enjoy the great atmosphere and panorama that surround you. There are 120 acres of nature lovers paradise for you with a vast range of flora and fauna. For the golf fans, why not bring the clubs and try our demanding all weather 180 yard one hole course. All this knowing that you are a 5km walk away from all of the attractions Apollo Bay has to offer. Spend a couple of days and explore the world famous Great Ocean Road's local attractions. The accommodation is a neat self contained studio semi detached and suitable for two people seeking to get away. This experience isn't only available to yourselves though, but also to your four legged friends. This property is pet friendly and a heavenly place for your dog. We live in the main house, with our 6 year old child and our dog. We can show you around and help out when needed. The property is not fenced in so please contact us in advance if you are bringing your pet, so we can determine suitability.
Guest accommodations at this farm stay offer fireplaces and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer refrigerators, microwaves, cookware/dishes/utensils, and dishwashers. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.

5/5 Excellent

A room with a breathtaking view
Very relaxing & quiet on farmland with bush close by. Apart from the bathroom, really only one room with a kitchen and bed facing view but ample room for a couple. Has no oven except microwave, has stove top so be aware of this. Panorama is stunning.

5/5 Excellent

Serenity At Last
Great location away from hustle and bustle of town, yet only 8 minute drive out. Private and scenery to uplift you. Relaxing few days whilst touring around. Look forward to winter visit.

5/5 Excellent

Stunning views and quiet surrounds
What a little gem this place is! Such a peaceful and relaxing stay was enjoyed by us. Lovely to meet Reggie the resident border collie, she kept us entertained with her boundless energy. The 5 minute drive into the township of Apollo Bay was of no concern to us, we loved the chance to unwind and soak up the space, sat reading our books and watched the sun setting over the hills.

4/5 Good

Unplug from life
We enjoyed our stay at the old shearing shed. The views are stunning and if you are lucky you might see some wildlife. It does get windy, but we didn't mind. Kitchen is well equipped minus an oven. There is a wood fire or wall heater to keep you toasty. Internet is limited but I found this fine. Paul is quite happy to answer any question or concerns you may have. Probably the only thing I would suggest is like a welcome book with things to do in the area etc.

5/5 Excellent

Cute cottage in an amazing environment and just 7 minutes drive from Apollo Bay. My dogs played and run with the resident dog Reggie, a gorgeous border collie, who also took us for walks in the countryside. Perfect place to relax.
