Whether you are looking for some quiet time to relax and enjoy the slower pace of country living, planning a girls weekend away (in house massage available), or a family get-together, 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 or join us to meet/feed our resident farm animals (miniature ponies, alpacas, goats and sheep) . 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 heater and air conditioning (split system) in living areas, fully equipped kitchen with coffee machine (tea and coffee supplied), games room with pool table, Foxtel and DVD player in the lounge room, plus electric blankets, wall heaters and ceiling or portable fans in the bedrooms.

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.

Outside our pool house contains a queen size sofa bed (just let us know in advance if you'd like it to be set up for your stay), an infra-red sauna and plenty of room to relax or have a massage (in-house treatments can be arranged for you). Two desks let you have a separate workspace from the house, or an area for the kids to sit and draw. A split system provides heating and cooling. 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.

Our new multipurpose/yoga/exercise room is a great area (7x9m) to let the kids play or escape for some morning yoga and meditation. Yoga mats, blocks and straps are provided, along with various other exercise equipment. All are cleaned and sterilised before your visit. Outside underneath the cubby house there are a number of bikes you are welcome to use.

Please note that being located in the countryside brings it's own limitations - our water supply and septic system are unable to cope with large numbers of people, so we have a strict limit of 10 guests (excluding infants).
