While the size of the property and the location is perfect, the property managers needs to pay more attention to the cleanliness of the property. Every room was dusty, the walls dirty. There are not enough glasses to cover the amount of people staying. We were two, but what happens if the booking was for more? We had planned on using the BBQ but it was disgustingly dirty. Great to stay in if you’re only sleeping there.
Whilst an older style house, it is well maintained and very clean. The location is very quiet and convenient distance to centre of Daylesford. Steepness of access road nearly brought us unstuck with loaded car trailer. Would use this house again when next visiting this area.

First impression disappointing , food items left in fridge and fridge not clean.
Called and asked for cleaner to come who wiped out the fridge but still left items in the freezer and dirty plate in the dishwasher. Would have been nice if some wood had been left inside as it was raining.
