In November 1986 we were on a camping trip with our 2 small children passing through Port Fairy for the night. We never got any further. We fell in love with port Fairy and the cottage we purchased the following week.
We live a good five hours drive from Port Fairy on the Mornington Peninsula but were familiar with cottage accommodation elsewhere and we felt No.1 was perfect. It wouldn’t be the usual holiday house sitting empty and unused, and was a way we could share this special little place with others.
We took our first paying guests in February 1987 and twenty six years later we are still inviting guests to stay at No.1.
With the internet and mobile phones providing portable communication and a wonderful housekeeper living in Port Fairy we are able to interact with you personally or provide you with online booking and absolute privacy.
