“Beautiful place in a lovely setting”
Reviewed February 26, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

A landscape artist would love the outlook over the fields to the Otways.
The unit itself was excellent as were the breakfast provisions which for us covered lunch as well. The hosts Ami and Frans made the whole visit warm and relaxing. We have started on the jam we purchased and will soon start on the honey and relishes!

“Excellent stay”
Reviewed May 10, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Stayed here for 2 nights and Ami and Frans are the best host! Home was cosy and very comfortable. Ami's homemade jams were the best and we also got to feed the cows on the farm. View from the cottage is spectacular. If it's not cold, do sit outside the cottage at night and enjoy the sky full of stars. Breakfast basket every morning was enough for both our breakfast and lunch. Thanks to the fresh ingredients we were able to make loads of yummy food. Thank you Ami and Frans! :)

“You will feel at home!”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

From the very first time I've booked this place Ami has been the perfect host. She was keeping me up to date with my booking, giving me tips - how to get there, where to go for dinner (make sure you visit Forrest Brewery Co.). Ami made sure she knew more about us (visitors) so she could cater to our needs/likes for breakfast.
The cottage - very neat, clean and functional. There is a queen bed in the bedroom, ensuite and a kind-of walk-in-robe. The lounge/kitchen/dining is all one big room - but very functional. You have everything in the kitchen to whip up a scrumptious breakfast from locally sourced ingredients that Ami will drop off to you in the morning. The freshly made bread and the goat cheese were the highlights for us. And the tomatoes actually had tomato taste - no wonder, they were from Ami's garden!!! Oh, and there is plenty of tea, coffee and milk as well. Plenty of parking space (even for a big car).
Yes, the place is off the beaten track, but if in the area - I would not hesitate to stay at Ami's again. Thank you!!!

Two nights away from the kids, first time in 5 years...we couldn't have picked a better spot. Lovely owners, gorgeous cabin, amazing breakfast (best food we had in the Otways)...it was soooooo relaxing...we certainly hope to return and highly recommend it. The cabin was generously appointed, everything thoughtful - and a really great shower!

“The ultimate gourmet getaway!”
Reviewed December 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

If you are after a country escape that has endless views, tranquility and an abundance of organically grown produce to feast on .. then look no further than Otway Fields!

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay in their private cabin! We especially loved the furnishings from South Africa where the host's previously lived. After a very restful sleep we woke up to the gentle sound of rain pattering on the roof, the sent of fresh flowers by the bedside and a gourmet breakfast feast!

Ami and Frans are such welcoming hosts and their passion for home grown produce is evident in every corner of the property from their free range chickens to their fields of fruit and vegetables.

We already look forward to our return, hopefully longer next time!

Reviewed November 26, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights at Otway Fields and we were blown away by how comfertable and easy Ami made our stay. She showed us her 2 new baby twin calves and kept good contact with us. Our breakfast baskets were cute and impressive.
We would definatly suggest Otway Fields to anyone wanting to have a break from busy city or town life.

“Gourmet country heaven.”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The accommodation and hospitality was awesome. Great location and the most amazing breakfast hamper filled with Ami's homemade preserves. We were lucky enough to experience the towns Soup Festival and market stalls and whilst we were there we purchased more of Ami's delicious Zucchini Relish for home and friends.
Totally recommend the Local Brewery for tasting plate.
The cottage was well appointed with every luxury and a great place to rest and recharge.
We would fully recommend Otway Fields to anyone.
