Cottage at Honeysuckle Farm
Rest, restore & reconnect.
Set on the grounds of the beautiful Lauriston Hills Estate; a 104 acre working farm & vineyard, the Cottage at Honeysuckle Farm is a peaceful escape just over an hour from Melbourne. Tastefully restored while retaining it’s historic charm, this early 1900’s cottage sleeps 2-6 guests.
Situated just 10 mins from Kyneton, 15 mins from Trentham and 25 mins from Daylesford, it is the perfect base to explore all that the Macedon Ranges and Daylesford regions have to offer.
Every detail of the cottage has been conveniently restored with modern amenities, to ensure a private and restorative getaway.
Please note our rates are room dependent not guest dependent;
* If you are a group of two and wish to use two bed rooms please enter 4 guests into the booking request.
* If you are a group of three to five and wishing to use all three bedrooms please enter 6 guests in your booking request.
* If you are group of 4 and wishing to use all three bedrooms please enter 6 guests.
* Rooms not booked will be closed off and not made up. We set our pricing this way so that we are able to keep the base price down for couples or small groups only wanting to use one room, rather than having to pay the price of an entire 3-bedroom house.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to create a culinary delight during your stay, if you wish; stocked with complimentary ingredients and cooking essentials, or you may wish to order from our wood-oven pizza menu (subject to availability), where they will be made fresh on site and delivered straight to your door – please let us know 24 hours prior to your stay if you would like to order them. Complimentary breakfast is also provided, with sourdough bread, free range eggs, milk, butter, T2 tea & a Nespresso coffee machine.
Also available are a variety of wonderful gourmet hampers from Daylesford Picnic Boxes. The special link for these will be sent to you with the welcome message in the week leading up to your stay in case you would like to order one.
Each of the 3 bedrooms feature queen beds with beautiful French linen bedding, woolen blankets, feather down duvets, a pillow menu, bathrobes, heater and an electric blanket.
The bathroom has been tastefully restored with an indulgent clawfoot bathtub and separate shower, with luxurious Aesop amenities provided for your stay. We highly recommend having a long, soaking bath as the water comes from a deep aquifer which runs 100m below the property and is full of minerals, giving a beautiful blue hue to the water.
Outside you will find a relaxing fire-pit area that overlooks the windmill field and across to the country landscape, a Weber BBQ and an outdoor dining setting for up to 6 guests. For the ultimate experience, bathe under the stars in our antique claw foot bath & rain shower – a truly magical experience!
Please take care when driving around the area at dawn or dusk, as there are a lot of kangaroos around, and they can be very unpredictable and change direction quickly. It is a wonderful experience, so slow down and take it all in.
When you arrive, you will be greeted by our British Alpine goats. They are very friendly and love a carrot or an apple (there will be some left in a bucket for you in case you wish to feed them). During your stay, you may also see our Suffolk sheep, alpacas and cattle wandering around, so please ensure you close any gates behind you.
You will also have access to the animal paddocks, where there is a small dam which you may wish to simply take a picnic and a bottle of wine with you and find a nice spot to enjoy the serenity (we can organise the food and wine for you on request!), or you may wish to take our cottage bikes for a ride down the country roads, there are some beautiful spots to explore.
Due to the nature of the cottage and surrounding property (i.e. lake & dams, open fire places, animals, etc., unfortunately we can only accept infants not yet crawling or children over 12 (if you would like to discuss this further, please feel free to contact us). A BabyBjorn porta-cot can be provided for infants at an extra charge, please contact us if you would like this set up for your stay.
