Whether you are looking for some quiet time to relax and enjoy the slower pace of country living, or planning a girls weekend away (in house massage available), The Farmhouse is a perfect choice, located only 1 hour from Melbourne, and only a 20 minute drive to both Daylesford and Ballarat.

The space
Set on 10 acres of farmland, with lovely views of the local countryside, the house was built in the early 1900s and has been fully renovated with modern luxuries

Wake to the sound of kookaburras and the sight of kangaroos in the near distance. Take a stroll through the herb garden and orchard and meet our resident farm animals. We even have visits from other native wildlife such as echidnas and koalas, and a large variety of birds including rosellas, eagles and waterbirds on the dam.

The house has 4 bedrooms (sleeping up to 8 people), 2 bathrooms, wood fire, air conditioning, fully equipped kitchen with coffee machine (tea and coffee supplied), games room with pool table, Foxtel and DVD player in the lounge room, electric blankets and more.

Outside our pool house contains an infra-red sauna and plenty of room to relax, maybe do some morning yoga (mats provided) or have a massage (classes and treatments can be arranged for you). In summer enjoy a swim in the magnesium salt pool, whilst in winter warm up with a cuppa by the outdoor fire pit or in the sauna.

Each bedroom contains 2 single beds. These can be joined to form a king size bed. If you would prefer the king bed option, please let us know when making your booking. Three of the four bedrooms have their own TV with DVD player.

The bathrooms contain shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hair dryers for your use. Whilst the water supply to the house is from rainwater tanks, a Nikken water filter and bottled water are also provided for you.

The house has been built over three levels, and is unfortunately unsuitable for wheelchair access.

Other things to note
Considerations if you are wanting to bring children:

We do not usually recommend children staying as there are a few safety concerns:

Swimming pool: please make sure gates are securely closed. The swimming pool is only available for use from October to March, but you may want to access the pool house any time of the year through these gates.

Pond: (in courtyard) please make sure the door from the dining room to courtyard is kept closed.

Wood heater: Please monitor children at all times if the wood heater is being used to prevent burns (a fireguard is NOT provided)

Steps: The house has been built over three levels - if you have an infant that has started to crawl/walk we suggest bringing a portable playpen so they can play in a safe area and not fall from steps inside or outside the house.

Dam: whilst it is not recommended to enter the paddocks with our animals, the dam does not have a child-proof fence.

If you have children and decide to book we will assume you have read and are comfortable with the above concerns.
