This bespoke stand alone country cottage sits high atop a plateau, overlooking the rolling green hills of wombat state forest. Feel like you are in the remote bush, whilst being less than 10 minutes from Daylesford, and 5 minutes from the cafes and restaurants in Hepburn. Enjoy the tranquility, stoke the wood fire, smell the sweet country air and sit back to magnificent views. Only 90 mins from Melbourne.
Lovingly owner-built, the cottage is warm and welcoming. Furnishings are locally sourced, including pottery and artworks. You will have everything you need to cook a meal at home, coffee, tea & milk, salt, pepper, oil and all cooking implements provided. Breakfast hampers are available on request.
Guests can relax and unplug, but there is still excellent phone coverage and full wifi connection, at no cost. There are books, walking trails, many local attractions, shops and eateries to enjoy nearby. A compilation of the best tourist information guides are supplied.
The cottage is set on a 9 acre property, alongside the picturesque Breakneck Gorge.
