“Lovely Views and Excellent Quality Service”
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.

“If you want to get away from it all and reconnect with where our food come from, you've come to the right place...”
Reviewed January 22, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a terrific time at Otway Fields. The cabin was beautifully set up for a couple, with a very comfortable bed, a well set up ensuite and facilities to cook your breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, the daily breakfast basket is always a great spread, following Ami and Frans' philosophy of local organic produce. Such beautiful eggs, fresh milk, and the nectarines and preserves were a delight.

The cabin is well set up for privacy, and the peace and quiet allowed us to recharge our batteries.

Ami and Frans were generous, gracious hosts and were very knowledgeable about the area, as well as being a delight to talk to especially when touring their piece of paradise.. Thank you so much guys, it was great to reconnect with the land and the food cycle.

“Relaxed and inspired by the beauty”
Reviewed November 1, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a wonderful escape from noise and busyness in this pristine place. All the little touches - fresh flowers, books, DVDs, knee rugs and the delicious breakfast ingredients supplied in the mornings were enjoyed and appreciated. Thanks so much Ami and Frans for the love and care you put into Otway Fields and for showing us around your farm.

“Put a spring in your step”
Reviewed September 22, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This holiday getaway can not be faulted. Wake up to the most stunning view and in the spring see young lambs at play in the vast green paddocks. Very relaxing indeed. Frans and Ami spoil you with treats, the most amazing breakfast basket and are wonderful hosts. Highly recommended!

“Perfect weekend getaway.”
Reviewed May 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Otway Fields is the perfect weekend getaway. The cabin is very cosy, tastefully decorated with an extremely comfortable bed. The view from the front verandah over the rolling hills & across farmland is so tranquil, you could sit there all day & take it in.
A definite winner was the generous breakfast basket we received each morning, thoughtfully prepared with home baked bread & cake, fresh eggs from the resident chooks & ducks, house smoked bacon, home grown veggies & herbs, homemade jams & preserves along with museili & yoghurt.
Ami & Frans are very hospitable. Ami is a wonderful cook, her cheese plate, afternoon tea, tarte tartin & breakfast baskets were all 100% delicious.
Thank you to them both for their generous hospitality & helping us make our weekend perfect! We would not hestitate to recommend Otway Fields to family & friends. It really was a lovely relaxing experience.
