Kidding Around Jean Cottage
Nestled amidst stunning green pastures in the Dromana / Red Hill hinterland, we found all we could possibly need for a relaxing getaway - and it wasn't long before we opened a local Pinot and got the wood fire roaring for a cosy night in. Having collected fresh local produce along the way we cooked up a storm together over wine and laughter: reminiscent of a family holiday, only this time between friends.
We were lucky enough to find breaks in the rain where we could tour the country lane ways, learning of the farm's native trees, bee-keeping ventures and a thing or two about raising kids! Our time with the goats was definitely a highlight, with the bottle fed kids snuggling into our necks like warm puppies and the older doe showing their personalities as we fed them.
Set on 48 beautiful acres and home to 60 of these adorable creatures, Frances and Jean Cottages made for a delightful farm stay. The property, named after owners Aimee and Nick's Grandmothers, was the perfect base for us to explore the area, a land so rich in good food, wine and breathtaking views. And don't let me forget that outdoor bath! What a way to end a day of adventures by sinking back into hot-tub bliss, overlooking undisturbed countryside lit up by the moon...
It's goat kidding season in September; it's safe to say we'll definitely be back!...
