aROUND HIGH VIEW

Friendly horses, quiet and peaceful rural surrounds and beautiful views: that's what we do at High View. We are passionate about horses and have four of our own as well as a number of agisted horses on the property. We have an indoor arena which is available for hire by local horse owners and their instructors. We have a couple of dogs, a couple of cats and a whole lot of love for our property which we continue to improve year after year. We have been here since 2013 with our two daughters and we don't plan on ever leaving. 

We hope you love it as much as we do.

THE FARM

We have 29 acres of rolling pastures with walking tracks around the whole property. You can wander around and visit  our horses or take your dogs for a walk in the fresh ocean air. You can often hear the ocean roaring in the background as you walk around the property. Stick around for the most incredible sunsets you will ever witness. 

 

Meet our Horses

Come with us each evening to feed and check on the horses. You can meet them up close and learn about our commitment to their care and wellbeing.

 

Explore the Rail Trail

High View is lucky enough to enjoy having the Warrnambool to Port Fairy Rail Trail pass right by our front gates. The Trail passes through wetland and farmland in either direction and is perfect to explore by foot or by bicycle.

Rundells Mahogany Trail Rides

Though you can't ride our own horses, our neighbours at Rundells Mahogany Trail rides offer guided trail rides through sand dunes and along the beach for all levels of experience. Give them a call to book in advance during peak periods. 0408 589 546

 

Entertainment

We don't have Wi-Fi, but we do have a number of board games, dvd's and jigsaw puzzles to help you reconnect and get back in touch with your family. Just visit our reception to go through the options for rainy day entertainment that doesn't involve personal devices and screen time.

 

We had a lovely trip to Warrnambool. We loved our stay at High View. 

Sonja was friendly and super helpful.

We were able to bring our dog along which is really important for us.

The lodge was perfect for us.  The price point is affordable and the lodge was warm and well kitted out.

The view over the paddocks with the calves and horses was great, and wandering around the farm we loved. 

So different from our life in the city.

Driving into town was very easy. 

Highly recommend and we will definitely stay again.

Both my daughter and I were delighted with the accommodation, very comfortable with everything you need and in such a beautiful spot. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others, horsey or not.

We loved our stay at your cottage a couple weeks ago. The location was perfect as we were doing things around Port Fairy and Warnambool.

The views were incredible and such value for money!- which we really appreciated as we couldn't afford really high priced accom. We loved the setting as we're off acres in the country but have both recently moved to more built up areas so it was great having all that space and privacy.
