The road to Glenoe begins quite innocently in Apollo Bay, even at night. Half-way up the hill, spiralling into further darkness, my arrival took a turn for the rugged.....

.... By the end, sheep were avoiding my unsteady tread and Dianne was looking bemused. Despite missing the drive, I found myself in a cottage, where straightaway I wondered why I hadn’t brought along all my friends – and if my address book would be large enough to fill the place. Pondering the two armchairs that faced drawn curtains, I set about exploring, noting the fully-stocked kitchen, the timbered living-room, the extensive DVD collection, the vastly comfortable and cushioned bedroom, the enormous spa bath, the fossils in the Mt. Gambier limestone walls. Come morning I found myself taking breakfast in one of those armchairs, a bowl of muesli in hand and enjoying a penthouse view of Apollo Bay. Framed by gum trees, sheep grazing hills, wooded valleys and, of course, the wide ocean fill the panorama. One guest was amazed by rain squalls playing across the sea; for me it was the full rainbow forming over the adjacent spur. Dianne loves having guests, but understands that many come here to simply get away and feel private. She has been known though to take bookings during lambing season – this is a 300 acre sheep and cattle farm after all – and welcomes a hands-on holiday approach to ewes ready to drop.
