Cara is a chic and lovingly restored old miner's cottage, just a short walk to The Boathouse and The Lake House and with Daylesford Lake literally at the bottom of the garden. Very much part of Daylesford's heritage, Cara can be seen in old photographs of Daylesford properties around the lake, and the recent restoration has cleverly maintained some of the old fashioned features, whilst combining with modern day appliances and comforts.

Cara is a great option for a family, 4 singles or 2 couples. With queen beds that can be split into singles, both bedrooms have their own tiny, modern en-suites with toilet, shower and vanity catering for privacy and comfort.

The kitchen, dining, living area is open plan and flows to an outdoor deck which faces east and has views over the back garden, the lake and beyond. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, cook top and oven, large fridge, cutlery, glassware and crockery so you are able to cook full meals. There is a coffee machine, and an electric BBQ on the deck for evening cook-ups.

The split system offers heating and cooling, and there are panel heaters in the bedrooms for winter warmth. A large wall mounted TV has Netflix for your entertainment. There is off-street parking for 2 cars and if you love walking or are a jogger, the path around the lake is just at the bottom of the garden. After your walk, have a coffee at either The Boat House or Andrew's Book Barn and enjoy the views. Walk into town? It will take you a brisk 10 minutes and coming back it's all downhill - you will feel great for having done the exercise.

We provide complimentary tea, coffee, milk and sugar. All linen is provided for bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. All you need to bring are your personal belongings, food and beverages.

WIFI provided.

Sorry no pets and no 1 night bookings.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Property - issues with insects The property itself is beautiful and in a fantastic location, as soon as you walk in you feel at home and very cosy, could not fault that. We experienced issues with insects, the first morning of our stay woke up with a spider in the bed and the following night just as we were going to bed and pulled back the blankets noticed hundreds of insects in the bed. We did notice that the ceiling in the bedrooms is made from timber panels which have many cracks which we assumed the insects may have come from. The cleanliness of the rooms are OK, however there are dead insects in the corners where the wall and the carpet meet which have not been cleaned effectively.
