Transported from England in the 1800’s, Clifden Lodge was rebuilt in Australia some years ago and now sits nestled in a meandering, mature cottage garden where stone pathways and tiny steps work their way around the house. It has been lovingly restored and renovated and now offers a mix of old world charm and modern day features.
Located in the heart of Hepburn Springs, the house has upstairs/downstairs with the 2 bedrooms nestled in the charming attic that only reached by a cheeky little wooden staircase, something more suited to an old sailing ship. The 2 bedrooms cater for 4 guests in a queen bed and twin singles. The sunroom can offer 2 more guests the ability to sleep on day beds but you would need to bring your own sleeping bags and pillows.
The living room has an open fire, an old piano, comfy seating and there is also central heating. The sunroom, with fantastic views of Doctor's Gully, offers another great space to relax and read a book or just gaze out over the bush. The kitchen/dining room is open plan and roomy with wooden floors throughout and an English cottage theme. There is a trendy bathroom, with a shower and a bath, a separate toilet plus laundry facilities.
Attention golfers... Clifden is close to the Hepburn Golf Club and visitors are welcome; also close to restaurants, cafes and spa facilities including Peppers and The Bathhouse in Hepburn, and is just a 4 minute car ride to Daylesford. A special spot is the loggia where you can sit outside and watch the fantastic birdlife and wildlife across bush views.
Your well behaved pet is welcome and is allowed inside and outside, however, it is not allowed on the furniture including the bed. Please note this property is not fully fenced and the staircase could be a challenge for most dogs.
