A cute and charming country get away. Hear the frogs at night in the creek, and enjoy weekend shopping at the nearby Wesley Hill farmers' market. Visit Castlemaine's great cafes, parks and bushland. You’ll love my place because of the cosiness, history, the beautifully renovated kitchen. I am a writer, and so there's heaps of great books to read while you are here. My place is a short drive into town or 20 min walk.

Sweetest, little cottage that made us feel right at home. Couldn't have asked for a cosier space for our weekend away. But of a longer walk into town but we love walking so suited us! Highly recommend!!!

A quiet & cosy place just a few mins drive from the town centre, with good heating (we were there in winter) & helpful info and instructions from Brigid.

Great place to stay for a small family or 2 couples. Kitchen is modern, very quiet surroundings and close to the township.

Had a great long weekend in this cosy, comfortable cottage. Was such a cold weekend so really appreciated that the host purchased some electric blankets ahead of the weekend! The gas log fire certainly kept us warm. Beautiful old cottage, with a modern kitchen and bathroom.

A charming little cottage, plenty of room for a small family or couple and very clean and very well equipped (minus a TV/DVD player which would have been great with kids). Overall a really pleasant stay here and I'd recommend.

This quaint cottage with modern kitchen and bathroom was very comfortable for 3 people or two couples, with a cosy lounge and a good size kitchen/dining room. The break from tv was compensated by a great library, but wifi unfortunately not working while we were there. The cottage was close to town and a quick drive out into the magnificent countryside. This area would be beautiful in any season. We loved all the original cottages in Castlemaine and the streetscapes and shopping opportunities in nearby Kyneton and Daylesford.
