We visited Quamby as part of our trip down the Great Ocean Road to Adelaide.Although it was a little off the main route, it was certainly worth driving the extra few kilometres. The Homestead is beautiful and is being gradually restored by the owners, William and Ailsa. The accommodation is separate from the Homestead and has all been renovated to a high standard. We stayed in a Mews room, and it was very comfortable and well equipped with everything you could need. Guests have use of the lounge in the main house and you can pick up wifi there. Breakfast, which can be full breakfast or just Continental is excellent and is served in the dining room or on the terrace overlooking the garden. The gardens are beautiful and you can spend time walking around the grounds. Apart from natural wildlife, there are also some hens, alpacas, a goat and some cattle.
Whilst Quamby is surrounded by open countryside, it is only about 25 minutes to Port Fairy and Warnambool. A very relaxing and different b & b to visit.
