“We had a wonderful family getaway at Happy Valley, an adorable cottage in Rye.  It was well furnished, with a spacious backyard, perfect for enjoying a cuppa on the deck!  It was our home away from home, and we felt very comfortable there, playing board games, watching movies and stargazing in the yard at night with a glass or two fo wine.

Mornington Peninsula Activities

We were fortunate to have incredible sunny weather during our stay and we made the most of it by getting out into nature.  We took the scenic Millionaire’s Walk in Sorrento, for stunning ocean views and visited the nearby beach a couple of times so our lab could enjoy a swim in the ocean.

On our first night, we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Xpress Gourmet Pizza – the pizzas were amazing and they are dog friendly too which was a nice bonus so that we could eat with our fur baby.  The following day we had lunch at Merrick’s General Store, a quaint and rustic restaurant with yummy food and lots of charm.  We also visited Pt Leo Estate, an impressive winery with modern architecture, incredible views and a trendy sculpture park.

On our last day, we had a lovely time cherry picking at Red Hill Cherry Farm and also strolling through the Rye market.  We also walked around Sorrento and browsed all the gorgeous homewares stores there.

The highlight of our visit was being able to escape the hustle and bustle of our busy lives and spend time relaxing and bonding as a family.”
