Description

The Property
Lavender Farm provides you with your own luxurious three bedroom farmhouse in the heart of the Yarra Valley just 6km from the lovely small town of Healesville. The accommodation is fully self-contained and only one booking is taken at a time so you have exclusive use of the house; whether you are a couple, a family or small group of friends. The owners, Tony and Jacky, have a separate house on the property and are available if you want any help or advice on your holiday.

The house is set on 13 acres with beautiful gardens and native bird-life. You are welcome to help yourself to any seasonal fruit, vegetables and herbs growing in the cottage garden and orchard. There is a veranda around 3 sides of the house so you can enjoy a cup of coffee watching the sunrise or a glass of wine watching the sun set.

The property is pet friendly so, as long as your pet is also friendly, it is welcome. There is also the opportunity to bring your own horse. There is a fenced swimming pool on the property which is generally available for use 10am-4pm Mondays to Saturdays and other times by arrangement. The pool is solar heated.

At weekends, there is a 2 night minimum stay requirement and discounts are provided for stays of 4 or more nights.

The House
The house is very spacious, providing you with a large lounge room with a wood fire, a fully equipped kitchen and a separate dining room. On arrival your kitchen is stocked with breakfast provisions featuring local produce including organic granola, Artisan bread from Innocent Bystander, free-range eggs and bacon.

There are three bedrooms: one Queen-size with an ensuite bathroom, one double and one twin. The main bathroom has a shower and a spa bath with views over the valley. There is an additional small room with a set of bunks which can be used for a larger family or a small group and there is a laundry with washing machine and dryer.

All the linen and towels are provided for your stay and there is free wifi and a selection of books and DVDs. The bedrooms and living room all have reverse cycle heaters/ air conditioners and there are electric blankets on all the beds for those chilly winter nights.

The Area
Lavender Farm is in a picturesque rural setting a five minute drive from the popular township of Healesville and 2 kilometres from the Healesville Sanctuary. The town has a number of great restaurants and cafes including the iconic Healesville Hotel and Innocent Bystander. There are a range of wineries and galleries such as Tarrawarra Museum of Modern Art within a 10 minute drive and great walking in the surrounding hills.
Wedding venues such as Stones of the Yarra Valley and Oakridge are a 15 minute drive-away.

For guests who are unfamiliar with what the region has to offer, Tony and Jacky are happy to help with planning your stay to make sure you discover the treasures of the Yarra Valley.

Lavender Farm is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lavender Farm is such a lovely place to be. Tony and Jacky are such an excellent host...we felt so welcomed by all the extra lovely touches, i.e. wood fire heater was heated prior to our arrival, homemade & delicious walnut cake, lavender sprigs around the house. Not to mention the friendly Rory (dog). We all enjoyed the spa bath in winter, the beautiful sunset view from the windows.. Two nights were too short ;-) We absolutely recommend this place to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We thought that Lavender Farm was absolutely beautiful! The extra supplies ( cake ) was a lovely touch, the house and amenities were fantastic!Unfortunately our dog couldn't be left off leash as the front gate was left open, but thats ok - shes a puppy we understand that other dogs may not roam as freely as what ours might have done.Thanks again,Diana G and Shane L and Emma

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fantastic experience. Lots to do around the area. The house had everything that you could need and the verandah all the way around was so relaxing. The dogs were a highlight for our kids and are still talked about. Also has plenty of room for our large family which is rare to find. Thank you so much for a wonderful retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost the perfect 10! Great accommodation, great scenery and great houseguests, (the four legged variety who followed us everywhere). Thanks to Jacky & Tony for giving us the perfect night - wish our commitments had allowed us to stay longer. Well done! Judy, Jeff, Sylvia & Alan.
