**Minimum two night stay on weekends**. Two unique, historic, cosy cottages on top of Wombat Hill in Daylesford. Sunshine Red is an original hexagonal mud-brick cottage and Moonlight Blue is a replica Miners Cottage.
Our cottages are smoke free, open plan, original and quaint. Both Cottages are nestled in the grounds of the former Stanhope Street Nursery in Daylesford. If you love your garden then you will love this place too. Plants of all different varieties, including a numerous array of bulbs, shrubs, trees and flowers.
Each cottage has its own key code. Once a guest has paid for their accommodation via Airbnb the computer generates a specific key code for the cottage. Guest can then come and go as they please.
Guests can also access the entire garden. Because their are two cottages in the garden block, we just ask that guest respect each others privacy. A small pergola is located in the middle of the property where guests can eat, drink or smoke, because we want all our guests to have a healthy enjoyable stay, plus the importance of maintaining our quaint and unique cottages, it is a condition of a guests stay that they cannot smoke inside our cottages.
We are happy to do a meet and greet ( check our trip adviser reviews) as we are only a phone call away and are often at the cottages seeing guests. We are also very happy to provide guests with information regarding local attractions etc
