Clifden Cottage is a fully self-contained rural retreat set on a farm breeding eyecatching Belted Galloway cattle and black alpacas in the foothills of the Strzelecki Ranges. The property boasts unparalleled views of West Gippsland. The expansive panorama has even been described as 'of cinematic proportions'.
Experience true farm life, simply relax and unwind, or have it all…..the joys of the country without the work. This is the perfect place to rest and rejuvenate, or enjoy new experiences. The cottage is ideal for a quiet escape to the country, secure and comfortable for 1 guest, well-appointed for 2, 3 or 4.
The property is an easy 90 minute drive from the Melbourne CBD and very close to the well-known tourist village,Yarragon.
West Gippsland’s attractions are all close by. Follow the gourmet food and wine trail, explore the shops, walk Mt Worth or take one of the many scenic drives throughout the area. You will find plenty to do in all seasons.
Clifden Farm is home to stunning black huacaya alpacas and eyecatching Belted Galloway cattle. These visually distinctive, gentle animals provide wonderful opportunities for photographs, hand feeding and petting. Tour the farm and even participate in routine farm activities if you like. Or simply sit by the wood fire in the cottage with a glass of wine or take tea on the verandah and enjoy the expansive vistas.
You will always receive a warm welcome at Clifden Cottage. We live on the adjoining farm and are on hand to assist in any way we can.
