I would like to think this is a home away from home. It's a very peaceful spot where you can feel one with nature. It is set in the middle of a farming community with spectacular views of rolling hills and the sounds of birds and occasional sheep. The warm mid morning sun lulls into a sense of calm and takes you far away from everyday hustle and bustle.
“Trish's place is a charming cottage set in lovely, tranquil surroundings in the country. The cottage is incredibly well-provisioned which was useful as we cooked up a storm both evenings. We loved feeding the resident horse, Amber, with carrots and hanging out with the cat who comes to visit (mainly at meal times!). The cottage is also well located near a supermarket in Skipton (10 mins drive) and within 45 minutes of Ballarat.”
This warm historic cottage with some practical modern touches built in circa 1900 in a peaceful location, walking distance to town and the picturesque rail trial nearby. The romantic and dreamy bedrooms have beautiful 4 poster beds and a couple of sweet single beds all with soft antique linen and luxurious mattresses. Enjoy the fire place during winter as you relax on the chesterfield or sit looking out from the bay window at the elm or sitting on the veranda.
“Thank you so much Halina - Your Pearls Place retreat ticks every box and is an absolute Gem. Gorgeous home in such a peaceful setting. Comfy beds and love the fire place and all the amazing things from the golden years. Much appreciated the very generous breakfast and treats you left for us. We only wish we had more time. Kind Regards, Mary.”
Set among an abundant and lively garden, The Barn is our fully detached, unique guest house. The building was originally a fully functional blue stone farm barn but since owning the property we have converted the space into an open plan house, complete with kitchen, bathroom, large living area and two mezzanine bedrooms. The outside remains in its original state while the inside has been decorated with a collection of artwork and objects from our travels overseas.
“The Barn was a fantastic place to stay for a weekend away from Melbourne. We particularly loved sitting in the garden and the warm fireplace. There is a grocery store about 15 mins away by car, which was convenient. Sarah was a friendly host and her communication made check-in very easy. We would stay here again and recommend to other people.”
