Fawcett Cottages Farmstay

"Best family weekend away ever! Where else does a lamb wander into your living room, looking for a milky bottley snack? Come to think of it, that's not everybody's idea of a good time ...

Approx two hours' drive from Melbourne, this farm is insanely child-friendly, right down to the warm hug you get from the owners upon arrival. Our city kids couldn't wrap their head around the freedom. 'You mean we're allowed to go anywhere, whenever!?'

Accommodation is basic, clean and cosy. Air is crystal clear. Animals are top notch. What more do you want?"
