Valley View Cottage
Valley View Cottage is situated Parla Gully Country Retreat which is a 200 acre farm on the fringe of the beautiful Otway Ranges and only 20 mins from Aireys Inlet, Anglesea and the fabulous Great Ocean Road. Soak up the sun on the sandy beaches of Torquay, Anglesea or Aireys Inlet in the summer months and come home to a fully self contained peaceful haven. Wake to exclusive views to the north along the Wormbete Creek valley and the quiet countryside with grazing sheep and not house or car to be seen.
Enjoy the pleasures of rural lifestyle, take a walk in the Great Otway National Park or bring a horse or bike and ride through the Otway Forest Park at our very own back gate.
Valley View Cottage is now available for bookings, and offers a slightly more compact version of Grandview Lodge for those not requiring a full sized house. Bookings can be arranged for both the cottage and the lodge catering for groups of around 10 or more people with enough room for everyone to get together at Grand Veiw for special occasions. Perhaps even a wedding or that special birthday? …
Please contact us for special rates on both cottages and availability. Additional fold out single beds can be arranged within our existing pricing structure.
