Top accommodation for your Great Ocean Road experience

Selecting the right dog friendly accommodation for your Great Ocean Road adventure is a key to making the most of this iconic Australian driving experience.


Countrywide Cottages, just 25 minutes from Lorne, is a perfect site to break the journey or serve as a base as you tour the world-famous coastal route in Victoria’s south-west. Staying in our great accommodation allows you to linger for longer, savouring the sights, the sounds and the tastes of a truly magnificent part of the country.

Our four self-contained cottages are all about comfort and quality. But they also provide guests with flexibility to absorb more of their Great Ocean Road experience.

Perhaps you’ve stocked up on great regional produce and want to create a culinary masterpiece for your travelling companions? Each cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen to help your inner chef deliver the goods. For those not wanting to cook, there are some great dining experiences you can explore just a short drive away.

Countrywide Cottages also provides flexibility for people travelling with canine companions. Forget boarding kennels – dogs are welcome at our pet-friendly accommodation in the Otway Ranges. We’re proud of our 5 Paw Rating for Dog Friendly Accommodation and love rolling out the welcome mat for our four-legged mates. From a comfortable bed, to bowls, dog treats and our secure yards and plenty of open space and bushland, your dog will certainly enjoy the holiday too.

While the pull of the scenic touring route is strong, it’s also lovely to have the flexibility to take a day or two to draw breath, relax and enjoy what’s immediately around you without having to travel the tarmac. Step out the front door of any of our cottages and simple enjoyment of nature is right there. In front of you. Waiting for you.

Go for a walk or bike ride in the beautiful bushland, search for yabbies in our large dam or introduce yourself to the farm animals on the property. The choice is yours. And don’t forget to find a good stick so you can toast marshmallows over a fire outside as the evening cools.

So when you are considering accommodation for your Great Ocean Road trip, remember that Countrywide Cottages gives you flexibility to make the most of your adventure. Please contact us if you would like more information.
