Description

A peaceful retreat, set on 5 acres of land adjoining Kinglake National Park. Our 4 bedroom mudbrick holiday house is located in a secluded valley just 1 km off the Melba Hwy, the Castella Country Retreat CCR is an easily accessible yet secluded getaway, just a little over an hours drive from Melbournes CBD. If wine tasting or site seeing is your thing, CCR is a great place to base your stay in the Yarra Valley.

Wake to the laugh of the Kookaburras and enjoy an array of birdlife which fill the stringybark gums throughout the day. Keep an eye out for wild ducks, echidnas, wombats and kangaroos who frequent our dams and paddocks. CCR is a fabulous way to enjoy the Yarra Valley and the great Australian Bush.

Local attractions include numerous wineries some with great restaurants, great scenery, walking trails, waterfalls, cafes, quaint local towns, Healesville Sanctuary, Tarrawarra Art Gallery, the Yarra Glen & Healesville Race Tracks and the RACV Country Golf Club.

With 4 bedrooms and two living areas CCR is great for a girls weekend away, families and groups of friends.

Families with young children will need to take care, there are two dams located on the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic house for families! Lovely countryside getaway. Had an awesome weekend - 2 families with 4 kids ranging 9-12. Spacious house and the huge grounds with alpacas were great for the kids. Spotlessly clean with everything you need. Perfect location to stay to explore the Yarra Valley and Kinglake National Park. We wanted to stay longer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable family stay We thoroughly enjoyed out time in Castella. For our family of seven, it was great to share a couple of days together in this place. Beds comfortable and the wood heater kept us warm. A great base to explore the area - especially the Yarra Valley region. Thanks.
