Ok, make yourself a cuppa, Mamma has A LOT to talk about here. Firstly, let me tell you about Fawcett Farmstay Cottages - it is situated in Alexandra -north and just over 2 hours from Melbourne.
Carolyn and Lee have recently brought the farmstay with their son and his family. These guys are lovely. There is a lot the family and wanting to do around the farm but Mamma thinks it's kinda special just the way it is.
The cottages are all cute, tidy and have a warm country feel. Everything Mamma loves in a farmstay. Mamma and her little one stayed in the Blue Wren Cottage. It was small, cosy and perfect for a family of three. Located near the main house little miss was able to keep an eye for animals passing by. The cottages have everything you need for a few days away. There is a heater, cooler, kitchen and BBQ out front on the porch. The House (cottage) is located perfectly near the play area. Maybe instead of heading out at night you would prefer a BBQ at the cottage while the kids explore the grounds.
There is an outdoor space for the kids with a trampoline, old boat, little ride ons and climbing frames for the kids to keep busy. The owners set out around 5pm of an evening to feed the animals. Guests are encouraged to tag along and help out. This is a great chance for kids to get involved, grab some fresh eggs from the chickens and interact with the animals.
The farm itself is only 2km out of town, so it's perfect for a quick stop to the supermarket or if the weather is kind and kids need to move a walk.
Mamma's special mention: There is a lot to do in town with some of the cutest places to eat - The Corner Hotel and The Alexandra Pub and Cafe. There are parks and markets. Mamma says you will want to make a weekend of it.
