Dog friendly Destination of the Year Award nomination

Great Ocean Road’s best dog friendly accommodation.



We are extremely proud and excited to be nominated for the Master Dog Breeders and Associates (MDBA) eighth Annual Dog Owners Choice Awards. Countrywide Cottages has been nominated for the Best Dog Friendly Accommodation Tourist Destination of the Year award, a prestigious nomination and one we are honoured to be up for.

From our perspective, the bushland behind the Great Ocean Road is the perfect location for a dog friendly accommodation! And our furry friends certainly agree with us. The Awards will be announced on May 31, and while we eagerly await the outcome, we are also just as happy to receive this nomination. The awards are judged by fellow “dog people” from around Australia and the world, plus one MDBA representative.

Over the years we’ve been fortunate enough to provide dog-friendly accommodation to a variety of canines, big, small, young and old. Families have brought their dogs along for a final family holiday near their pet’s end of life, and more recently we found out one of our four-legged guests became pregnant with her puppies at our property!

It’s such a privilege for us to provide this opportunity for people who love dogs as much as we do to holiday together. The Great Ocean Road and its surroundings is obviously a beautiful part of the world and one which is perfect for long walks, exploring, relaxing and of course, making new friends! We love seeing your pictures and hearing your stories about your stay with us, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a story or photo to share.
