Situated one block from Town Square, Rothesay Cottage consists of the front rooms of an original 1870s home, moved from Newbury by steam tractor in 1928. The overall style is a hybrid of 1870s and 1920s Art Deco to reflect its history.

Your queen room boasts a stunning period bedroom suite complete with ensuite.
Your snug (cosy lounge) includes the original operational Edwardian fireplace with a modern cupboard kitchenette. The front verandah has been enclosed to create a sunroom with daybed.

The space
Rothesay Cottage is an historic 4 room petite Suite on Cosmo Road, one short block from town, with its own private keypad entrance.

BEDROOM & ENSUITE
The bright north-facing Art Deco queen bedroom includes all natural bedding—linen sheeting and covers, options of silk, microfibre and goose feather doona and latex and feather pillows. Electric blankets are also fitted.

The bedroom includes a comfortable reading nook and original artworks. Electric wall panel heaters are also fitted (not pictured).

The ensuite has a large shower and modern updated amenities.

THE SNUG
The snug (cosy lounge) features original Art Deco furnishings, an Edwardian fireplace and beautiful natural light beaming in from the adjoining sunroom. In the colder months the fire will be set, and extra firewood included. Electric wall panel heaters are also fitted (not pictured).

A gate-leg table with 2 chairs can be easily utilised for desk or meals.

You will find a Smart TV (with USB and HDMI) hidden for when needed. Netflix, Prime Video and Stan available.

PETITE KITCHENETTE
The kitchenette includes a small sink, bar fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, salad bowl and servers, Lavazza coffee (pod) machine, milk frother, sandwich press, a slow/fast cooker, 2 cutting boards, knives, a single induction hot plate, lidded saucepan and frypan and a variety of preparation and cooking utensils. There are lidded glass containers, a rice-cooker and 2 plate covers for the microwave.

Please note that the kitchenette is built into a cupboard, therefore the space is very compact, and very suitable for preparing simple meals. There is an adjacent small cupboard with a marble top which provides another preparation surface as well as housing the rudimentary cooking choices. It has a metal trivet and cane mat for surface protection.

A wide selection of loose tea and teas bags , coffee, milk, Red Beard sourdough buns, butter, fresh fruit, granolas, muesli, mixed nuts and dried fruit. Condiments for the bread/toast include local honey, jams, marmalade, Vegemite and peanut butter. Milk, berries and yoghurt can be found in the bar fridge. Other essentials are also supplied should you wish to cater for yourselves (olive oil, salt and pepper, vinegar etc).

SUNROOM
The enclosed verandah/ sunroom features an antique cane chaise/ daybed, where you can read or snooze in the morning sun. You'll also find an electric panel heater and a basket full of blankets for those chilly mornings. There is a range of books to browse as well.

PRIVACY & NOISE
You have the entire Suite at your disposal and a small side garden to the right of the front door. We live in the back part of the house which is separated by a sound insulated panel over a solid door covered by a thick antique rug which has been closed off for your security.

Where you’ll be

Trentham, Victoria, Australia

Just over an hour drive from Melbourne, and half-way between Woodend and Daylesford, tiny Trentham not only sits high atop the stunning landscape of the Great Dividing Range but it offers a range of delicious cafes and restaurants, local wines, artisan produce and specialist shops.

A quaint village retaining many historical buildings and a charming street scape also boasts botanical gardens and shady tree-lined streets.

Dine on sourdough breads and other baked products from RedBeard Bakery’s 120-year-old scotch oven and seasonal local pub fare at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Book in early for French farmhouse cooking by celebrated local chef and farmer Annie Smithers at Du Fermier.

Magnificent Trentham Falls is located just a couple of minutes from the historic town centre. With a drop of some 32 metres, it is Victoria's highest single-drop waterfall. Enjoy a picnic and take in the vista by the river. Hikers will appreciate the walking tracks in the surrounding forest.

For panoramic views of Mount Macedon, the You Yangs and the Dandenong Ranges, drive to Blue Mount or McLaughlins lookouts in Wombat State Forest, or explore by foot or on horseback.
