Overall Rating 4.8/5

Hambleden is in a wonderful location, walking distance from the main drag of Daylesford and close to the main supermarket. The house is clean, spacious, and everything really well appointed and comfortable. It looks just like the photos and all the beds were super comfy with lovely bed linen. We stayed over Christmas and planned to cook a big xmas feast – the kitchen was really well stocked with cutlery and crockery and cooking appliances. The hamper of local treats was also a lovely touch. We were 6 adults and 2 small children and felt very comfortable for our four night stay.

6. Yandoit Church, Yandoit

6   3   2

Built in 1884, Yandoit Church faithfully served the local community for over 100 years until the doors were finally closed in 1993. Fast forward over 20 years and the old building was in a serious state of disrepair. Following an extensive restoration and extension, the property was reopened as holiday accommodation in 2016 and can now be enjoyed by those seeking a truly exceptional country getaway. Pops of colour and texture blend with oak floors, stone finishes and remnant paintworks in the nave. The property is a testament to style and grace and is a fine example of a sympathetic, yet modern, renovation of a building that has been rescued from ruin.

A tranquil country setting provides the perfect backdrop for a memorable stay at Morgantis. The heritage façade of the property is reminiscent of Daylesfords early history when settlers were drawn to the region during the gold rush in 1860. Beyond the original architecture are more recent additions including a relaxed living and dining space that comfortably caters for 10 guests. Head outdoors for a game of Bocce, try your luck gold panning by the creek, or cook up a storm in the great outdoors by the pizza oven.
