Description

This beautiful Tiny House is the result of a collaboration between Tom Dennis and myself (Joep Pennartz). We met about half a year ago when I contacted Tom if he wanted to rent out a tiny house on his farm. A few months later I did a crowdfunding campaign to pay for the tiny house, and Tom became the host on his amazing sheep farm.

The Tiny House is an original design by Rob Scott. His challenge in designing this house was making the smallest, yet fully functional house. The result is a beautiful, cosy House that fits on a 3-meter long trailer. The corrugated iron exterior makes it blend in perfectly on the Australian countryside and forms a nice contrast with the warm pinewood interior.

As you enter the house you’ll find a small potbelly heater to keep you warm and a 2-person mezzanine bed at the back of the house with a comfortable couch underneath. 2 Large windows ensure you can see the sheep as you wake up and all lights are powered by the solar panels on the roof. The space can comfortably fit 2 adults with the option for 1 child. Although this means that one of you will probably end up sleeping on the couch.

Around the house we’ve built a veranda with a simple bench, sink and gas stove. On the back of the house there is a hot shower and a few meters further we’ve built your private mini Tiny House with an eco-toilet.

We tried to create a space that is ideal for your relaxing getaway from a busy city. On the farm and in your Tiny House you can slow down time and fully relax. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as we do!

Love,

Joep (and Tom)

The area

The tiny house is located on a sheep farm near Birregurra on the North side of the Otways, overlooking the flat Western Plains.

You are able to explore the 500 acre farm by foot or your own bike. Walk around the farm, through the different paddocks with Tom’s sheep. For the enthusiastic knitters Tom has an on site wool shop where you can explore their woolen yarns and products. A kiosk serving (proper) coffee and scones is open on the weekends.

The Otway Hinterland is a rich, fertile area. The rainforests are to the south, with mountain bike trails, waterfall walks, quirky bush villages and amazing food. To the north are the volcanic landscapes around Red Rock and the moon-like back roads around Lake Corangamite.

The famous Otway Harvest Trail is a local initiative from many ethical, artisan producers. There are several great wineries, PYO (pick your own) berry farms and other producers in the area which Tom will tell you about when you arrive!

Self-drive is the key to getting around. The farm is just off the Princes Highway, so a great return to Melbourne from the Great Ocean Road. Tom can assist with transfers from and to the Birregurra train station.

Farm Rules

As you are on a working sheep farm, we expect you to be mindful of gates, machinery, dogs, dams and daily operations.

The owner

Tom Dennis

I’m Tom Dennis. My sheep farm in the Great Ocean Road region in South East Australia is one of Australia’s oldest family farms. I travel any chance I have, and enjoy returning to places to gain a deeper understanding of them. I speak intermediate Japanese and native English. I love sitting and chatting with people to learn about their life and country, so Shacky is a great way to travel for me. You are welcome to join us (me and my parents) over Morning tea at the Homestead where we discuss great places to visit. I warmly invite you to get the full experience of rural Australian life by staying with us. Not only will you enjoy the unique surrounds, but you will also contribute towards a sustainable future for one of Victoria’s oldest surviving homesteads.
