On a lovely spot overlooking the Tambo River east of Melbourne, Victoria, the pet friendly Rivendell Farm is a relaxing rural retreat with luxury self catering cottages on its working farm which keeps cattle, hens, peacocks and guinea fowl. It has beautiful grounds to explore, spa facilities and some fantastic, locally sourced food and wine at its on-site, farm to table restaurant.
The choice is between a very stylish and romantic one bedroom chalet with hot tub, and a spacious three bedroom, two bathroom cottage that can accommodate up to seven people. The latter can also be booked as a one or two bedroom unit for a cheaper rate. Check out all the details on the booking page here.
The accommodation is of the highest quality and there is plenty of outside space to enjoy, with lovely gardens, the farm of course and also a private beach on the Tambo River. You can try your hand at fishing, relax in the spa or hot tub, or enjoy a hike and a picnic in one of the many scenic spots around the estate.
The accommodation is self catering but for breakfast, and plenty more, there is a fantastic restaurant at Rivendell. It is a stylish, rustic-chic venue serving locally sourced, seasonal food, as well as a good selection of local gourmet wines, and with much of the ingredients coming fresh from their own kitchen garden.
The farm lies on the banks of the Tambo River, in East Gippsland, just over three hours from Melbourne city centre. The area is famous for its wines and there are dozens of wineries in the surrounding area, many of which you can visit. You’ll also find many good restaurants, farmer’s markets, arts and crafts shops and good surf beaches.
Its a relaxing, peaceful region but has a well established rural tourist infrastructure and so, as well as wine and food tourism, you can enjoy horse riding, 4WD tours, fishing, nature walks, canoeing, boating, surfing and plenty more without having to travel very far
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“Amazingly beautiful. EVERYTHING. Josh the chef, you are seriously HIGHLY talented. Please continue to create great, fresh, life changing recipes. Although the food was one of the best experiences we’ve had, the picturesque view of the farm, the land, the night sky just brings you to a halt. Everywhere you look was so amazingly beautiful. The hot tub, the animals, the drinks that was recommended by chef Josh was also quite joyful and again, just amazing. Definitely will be going back....”
“Exceptional: Everything about our stay was amazing, From the moment my partner and I arrived till the moment we had to end our weekend away, we were made to feel at home by everyone at the property. (including all the beautiful family pets) Do yourself a favor, spend a weekend at Rivendell maybe even longer if you can, the view you’ll wake up to is next to none. Do yourself a bigger favor, get the breakfast. You will not regret it….”
