Across a small courtyard is the studio bedroom with a queen, a single and ensuite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real winter warmer :) Beautiful stone construction - loved lounging around in front of the fire- so much character and if you love keeping fire boxes and open fires going to warm the winter nights then this is the place. Everything we needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rustic and Peaceful We loved our stay. From the creeky wire door you enter the original kitchen (circa 1870) and 2 adjoining bedrooms. Bathroom is unique with stained glass adjoining the throne and a lovely stone shower well. Rustic blue wall makes it quirky. You then wind down to the newer sections - a lovely lounge/dining room with huge open fire and library. BBQ outside. Separate flat with en-suite outside - great for couples. Large in-ground pool and garden area needing a little TLC. Jane was very helpful - lives close by. 10 minutes to Castlemaine. All in all a unique home well suited to the goldfields setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful - Tranquil - Fantastic We stayed at The Potager for a week and could' ve stayed for a month it was so lovely. The accommodation is a lovely rustic 1880 stone cottage with beautiful garden and surrounds, an amazing pool and a vast array of birds and wildlife It has everything you need for a comfy stay. It does not have a dishwasher but who needs one any way. The owner does live on the premises but completely respects your privacy and space. If you are looking for peace quiet and the most serene holiday then this is your place we loved it ,you will too. Will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two days is not enough... A house that sets you free the moment you enter. Classic 1880s goldrush house with the prettiest studio attached. We lazed in the garden, enjoyed cooking in the rustic kitchen, ate a long lazy lunch, fell asleep, woke up when we dived into the beautiful pool, saw kangaroos, an endless parade of birds and an echidna. At night we lit a roaring fire in the living room, drank wine, told bad jokes and laughed ourselves into the cosy beds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful property the Potager is a beautiful property ,but i felt it needed a good clean and some love ,we also didnt realise the owner is next door which didnt make it feel as secluded.
