Willie Pup has been working hard for an 8 month old, so we decided it was time for a break away. Finding the perfect dog friendly weekend getaway wasn't easy but we finally did it. If your looking for a relaxing night or few out of town with your fur buddy, views, walks, stars, wine, cheese and wildlife.... this is for you.
Adrienne's Country Retreat is a bed and breakfast just 60 kms north of Melbourne in Barringo Valley. The perfect country escape for us city kids and our fur child. This was to be Willie's first ever stay away from our city house and a hell of an adventure for the young pup!
A short drive from Melbourne and some serious Op shopping finds along the way we soon arrived at Adrienne's retreat. This stunning property is set on 15 acres at the foothills of Mt. Macedon. With gorgeous gardens surrounding the main house and a picturesque pond.
Our self contained B&B was stylishly decorated and best of all had its own private courtyard with 6 seater outdoor spa! Adrienne made us feel incredibly welcome and very much as though we had the property all to ourselves. Adriennes's gorgeous 11 year old black Lab 'Daisy' quickly took Willie under her wing, keeping him entertained while us grown ups indulged in plenty of cheese and wine.
We made the most of the retreats rambling property taking Willie for long walks through the bush and down the fields. Willie saw his first rabbits and kangaroos! Best of all the property felt safe enough (and with Daisy's careful watch) to let our young pup roam off leash constantly during the day time.
Willie has insisted we go back so he can play with Daisy again, which is fine with us as we already miss the spa! Not to mention Adrienne's incredible breakfasts overlooking the views.
We plan to take Willie on many more adventures this Summer throughout Australia so please leave us a comment telling us about your great pet friendly holiday.
Next on our list will be checking out the fantastic looking Dog friendly Cape Otway Cottages, they look incredible!

Just like us pets come in all shapes and sizes and no two of the same breed are identical. We've made this handy video to help you measure your buddy for the perfect fit. Below the video you can select your dogs clothing size from our size charts. *** WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND MEASURING FIRST***
REMEMBER WE ARE HERE TO HELP.
* Note Vests are sized differently to hoodies and tees please check the "Hoodie or tee size charts at the bottom of the page.
We do not recommend an average breed size as no two dogs of the same breed are exactly the same. - Please do not guess your measurements ie - my dog is a large breed so will be a size large ... that's not how it works guys ;)
CHEST MEASUREMENTS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT FOR YOUR DOGS COMFORT AND BEST FIT.
