    Description

    We are a couple living on a 26 acre farm set in beautiful rolling green countryside in West Gippsland, Victoria, approximately 1.5 hours from Melbourne. We offer fully self contained accommodation, suitable for a couple. in a comfortable, attractive mudbrick barn. We have a 6 acre garden including roses, vegetables, herbs, fruit trees and a small vineyard. On occasions we open the garden to the public and we are looking for a couple who have some knowledge of gardening. the remainder of the land is used to farm beef cattle. We are situated 3 km from a small village which has facilities such as cafe, bakery, supermarket and hotel and a 20 minute drive to a bigger town which has a railway connection to Melbourne.

    The area offers natural beauty, bushwalking and a vibrant artistic community.
