FAWLTY FARM offers a unique farm-stay experience with a range of accommodation options including the romantic Lake House, cosy old pool room, cute A frames and practical bunkhouses. Relax with family and friends under The Big Top and enjoy the open fire pit, extensive outdoor cooking options and the largest 12 person cedar Hot Tub in Australia.

Splash around in our PRIVATE lake where you can fish, paddle boat, kayak and swim. The lake is stocked with fish and is safe for swimming but is not fenced. Take a nature walk and enjoy the local fauna such as kangaroos, wombats and echidnas. BYO boat for fun on Lake Eildon. We have the largest pontoon in Taylor Bay which has 2 X 9m sides that will accommodate your super boats. There is no charge for guests. There is plenty of room for your cars, boats and caravans.

We also offer 3 FREE experiences with your hosts John and Sally including:

- a visit to our 28 person party boat the 'Fawlty Princess,' moored in Taylor Bay
- a visit to our operational quartz reef Gold Mine. It's been running for 80 years and some guests still find gold!!
- a trip in our 20 person ex-Swiss army pinzgauer to our private Ridge Hut for a Sundowner. Sparkling wine, cheese and nibbles provided.

The whole environment of FAWLTY FARM is perfect for large groups of family/friends looking for a place with great facilities and unique accommodation. Situated on 300 acres of steeply undulating country with a mixture of open grassy paddocks and dense natural bush-land, FAWLTY FARM is a perfect country getaway where the only sounds you will hear is the abundant wildlife and the laughter of family and friends. Other activities in the surrounding area include bushwalking, mountain bike riding, fishing and horse riding. Please ask us for information on these activities.

Much as we love dogs, Fawlty Farm is not securely fenced and is abundant with wildlife and domestic animals. It is not suitable for pets and we ask that you leave them at home please.

PLEASE NOTE - Fawlty Farm is designed for large groups of 18 adults. Please do not make an enquiry for small groups as Fawlty Farm can only be booked in its entirety (we do not rent out parts of the property).

PLEASE NOTE - Due to previous experience, we have found that all male groups are not suitable for our accommodation and we no longer accept these bookings.

Taylor Bay is unique as access to Lake Eildon is only possible through private land. There are no public facilities in Taylor Bay making the area safe, secluded and exclusive. The small but delightful township of Eildon is only 7 minutes away and the Dam Wall has year round boat launching. Even at about 75 percent capacity, Lake Eildon is more than 3 times the size of Sydney Harbour.

John and Sally have been welcoming guests to FAWLTY FARM for more than 30 years. The property is 'Hosted Accommodation' which means we reside on the property but in a separate dwelling. We are here to help and assist but won't get in the way of your group enjoying everything FAWLTY FARM has to offer.

Our extensive outdoor kitchen includes 9 different appliances to suit the most ambitious cooking team including:

- wood-fired, electric driven Roasting Spit that will take a lamb or suckling pig
- wood-fired ex-Army Baking Oven with huge stainless hot-plate which is ideal for breakfast cookups
- the latest gas Radiant Quartz Technology system BBQ
- gas Smoker
- gas fired Yabbie Pot
- wood fired Pizza Oven
- Beer Keg converted to a nifty rotisserie that is ideal for a rolled roast or two large chooks
- Paella Burner with a 600mm Pan
- half 44 gallon drum Charcoal Cooker which is great for all cuts of meat
- "flaming Charcoal" Texas offset grill/smoker (incredible BBQ, endless fun cooking anything)

BYO food and drinks. You will need to do your own cooking and cleaning with a view to leaving the premises as they were found i.e. clean please.

Connected to The Big Top is a large building that houses a substantial indoor kitchen and living room, as well as the 2 bathrooms, 3 toilets, 3 showers and a bath.
Behind here is a bedroom with a queen bed and 2 singles plus a wall plasma TV. The bunkhouse is 2 rooms with 6 bunks in each.

There are four separate cosy A frame cabins each with a double bed and two folding camp beds.

The romantic Lake House is a separate 2 storey dwelling on our private lake. It has a queen size bed and a slipper bath/shower upstairs. Downstairs is a double and single bed, kitchenette, toilet and TV. Large double doors open onto a deck over the lake with a 10 person dining setting and BBQ. Awesome in summer.

OVERALL - FAWLTY FARM has a total of 5 double beds, 2 queen beds, 13 singles and 8 folding beds suitable for children 4-10 years. We are permitted to have 18 guests but have sleeping options for 25.

The nightly rate of $1,500 is for up to 15 adults, with extra adults $100/p/n. Extra children 11-15 are $50/p/n and children 10 and under are free. If the Home Away calculator is unable to factor the children's rate, please contact us to confirm a price.

There is a 2 night minimum, except for long weekends which is 3 nights, Easter and Melbourne Cup is 4 nights and any booking that includes Christmas Day or New Year is 5 nights minimum.

We hope to welcome you to FAWLTY FARM soon.
