The space

Avoca is a small goldfield town with many historic buildings but it is also a real town with a bakery, butcher, newsagent, chemist, small supermarket, post office, cafes, galleries and two hotels. It is within an easy two hour drive from Melbourne and forty five minutes from the provincial towns of Ballarat, Bendigo and the happening Castlemaine. Avoca is an excellent base to explore the Grampians, the famous farmers market in Talbot and the towns of Clunes and Creswick. Our local Pyrenees wineries, Blue Pyrenees, Dalwhinnie, Redbank, Mount Avoca, Taltarni, and Summerfield have tasting rooms with friendly winemakers and picnic facilities. For the energetic, it is possible to visit many of these on your bike via country roads. You can store your bike or car securely in the garage at Willyama. Can't be bothered cooking, then just walk down the hill to the local hotel, The Avoca.

Willyama is within a short stroll of the town of Avoca. The house provides plenty of space indoors and outside to relax, unwind and reconnect with family and friends. There is a return verandah around three sides of the house with a large deck at the back of the house. The house has ducted air conditioning. There is always a sunny spot with a view of the Pyrenees ranges or the garden. The house has French doors opening onto these spaces from the lounge room, kitchen and back deck. The main bedroom contains a queen size bed and there is another queen bed in the second bedroom. There are two single beds in the sun room.

We had a lovely winery birthday weekend indulgence - with Eryn's lovely homestead as a base. Special and interesting touches throughout the property made it a comfy and relaxing stay. Thanks for being an integral part of my big and happy birthday Eryn, we may even be back again - next time in less harsh weather conditions. Michelle and Tera

The house is a short walk to the main street of Avoca and is a great base to explore the surrounding area. The house is as described - comfortable and very well equipped. As well as all the practical items, the decorative ones create a lovely atmosphere in both the house and garden. All the information was clear and any questions were quickly answered. Thanks Eryn.

The house was wonderful with a view of the mountains out front and is located in the heart of the Avoca township. The house is very comfortable and has a lot of character and space. The hosts were very accommodating and lovely to message. I would recommend this house to anyone wishing to stay in Avoca or the gold fields.
