Daylesford, Victoria

Our luxurious and welcoming 8 bedroom guesthouse is nestled in the heart of central Victoria on a 3 acre estate with superb countryside views. Positioned across the road from the Daylesford Sunday market, with easy and convenient access to the central township whose main street is thronged by cafes, bakeries, restaurants and boutique stores. Originally an old gold rush town, the region has since become a place of wellbeing infamous for its mineral springs and spas, and regional fresh produce, making it the perfect destination for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.

The living spaces of the guesthouse are spread over one level, comprising eight bedrooms and eight ensuites. Beautifully styled, with a majestic double sided fireplace, and wraparound verandah, the home provides ample space for writers to take advantage of the ample living and outdoor spaces. 

With a homely feel and peaceful setting, our retreat in Daylesford provides the perfect backdrop for five nights of immersion and creative expression.

Enjoy uninterrupted and tranquil writing time in an idyllic Australian setting, a stone's throw away from the heart of Daylesford and Hepburn mineral springs.

For guests spending time in Daylesford either side of the retreat, there are plenty of opportunities for relaxation or exploring. Take a visit to Lavandula Swiss Italian Lavender Farm, or spend some time pampering yourself at the Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa. Explore the Hepburn Springs Mineral Reserve, the Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens, have a bite to eat at The Old Macaroni Factory in Hepburn Springs, or venture to a local winery and cellar door.
