Casterton, Victoria
Only 20 minutes from Casterton and 1 hour from Coonawarra wine region, between Melbourne and Adelaide makes it an ideal location for a long or short stop over. A cosy 3 bedroom traditional cottage, surrounded by native reserve, a wilderness habitat for fauna and flora.
The cottage is warm in the winter with an open log fire and cool in the summer with lots of shady trees surrounding it. Ideal for barbecues and picnics.

The cottage is clean and comfy, there are great country walks nearby, and a kangaroo will probably bounce right past the door. It's lovely to turn up to a fire in the hearth and homemade bread in the pantry, along with fresh eggs and more. Ivy is very welcoming and it's great to be able to bring the pets along.
