Set in the 12 acre grounds of our historic home, “Claremont” (circa 1857), the Coach House is a two storey, historic, self-contained cottage. Located a mile or so from the centre of Castlemaine, it combines rural peace with the all the activities available in this popular and historic area only an hour and a quarter from Melbourne.
The Coach House has a lovely feel of times past, but has all the conveniences of today. It consists of five rooms and an upstairs tree-top balcony, comfortably sleeps six people, but has extra sleeping facilities for two more people if required.
The tariff for stays of a week, or more can be negotiated. Children are welcome and pets can be accommodated by arrangement.

This is a cozy bed-sitter with ensuite, situated closer to the main house. It has a double bed, gas pot belly stove, T.V. etc. There are limited cooking facilities, i.e. a toaster, electric jug, microwave, fridge and a breakfast basket can be provided at a small extra cost.
March 2008 Family from England. It was a fantastic time and we found a baby cat! We named her Osca, so if anyone finds the cat don\'t be scared, she\'s very loving. I also think Helen is keeping her! (Helen did keep her, but she is called Maow now, because Hunter our grandson insisted. She has been promoted to the big house.)
Dec 2008 Great beds, even though Ella talked in her sleep, everyone slept well, Great house, nice dog. (Which one is the dog?)
April 2009 Ballarat couple. \"Oh the glory of gold quiet upon the fence tops, streaming through the gums. The clean chill through sun births air. The soft crackle of hay beneath my slippered feet. The relaxed laugh of a crow overhead. sweet childhood is here. everywhere!
May 2009 Hurstbridge family A great stay! Lovely place and friendly hosts! fantastic value!(I have to admit that this is family and they stayed for free.)
