Bungalow on productive organic permaculture vegetable and fruit mini-farm bordered by both a river and a creek in a beautiful, quiet location with scenic Turpins Falls and The Cascades nearby, between the cafe-filled towns of Kyneton and Castlemaine.
It is the tranquillity and beauty of this property, with its beautiful garden surrounded by undulating farmland with magnificent gum trees, and with scenic bushland and breathtaking natural features nearby, that makes this a unique experience. The organic vegetables and fruits that surround the bungalow will be of interest to many guests. Generally a couple or a single person stay, but some guests have stayed with a baby, toddler or young child and found the mini-farm an ideal attraction for the kids because of the pigs, chooks and very tame goat. Many adult guests love the animals too!
Guests will have access to the entire property - you can relax in the garden and walk around it, pat the animals, check out the vegies and fruit trees, walk alongside the river and swim in our great swimming hole on the river (complete with mini-beach!). Please note that this is a market garden and so there will usually be at least one person working in it. You will have private access to the bungalow, which is separate from our house and self-contained. There is a parking spot for you close to the bungalow for easy access.
We are happy to chat with and show guests around the property. Or we can give you peace and quiet for relaxing, walking, artwork and writing or contemplation - whatever you want. We can supply eggs and vegies for a small additional charge if you want to use them to cook meals in the bungalow. Rob can deliver an organic vegie and fruit growing workshop for you which can include both theory and hands-on practice. ($40 for an hour, $60 for two hours, or $100 for four hours if you want to learn plenty!) We look forward to meeting you!
This property is perfect either for those who have a strong interest in organic growing, or for those who simply want a relaxing, peaceful holiday in beautiful surroundings. The wood heater in the bungalow creates a warm, cosy atmosphere and is in keeping with the natural surroundings. A high-quality split-system air-conditioner and heater ensures you can stay cool in summer and backs up the wood heater in other seasons to ensure constant comfort. The bed is queen size and very comfortable. The bungalow's kitchen includes a fridge, microwave, two-burner electric hotplate, pots, crockery, cutlery and sink for basic meals preparation. We can supply eggs and vegies for a small extra charge for cooking in the bungalow.
No smoking please. Pets are welcome, but please keep them off both the bungalow bed and garden beds! Thanks.
