Ease your mind and body as you enjoy a long-awaited getaway at Wayward Cottage, a 3 bedroom home that can accommodate up to six guests. Located about one and a half hours drive northwest of Melbourne, this cosy retreat can provide you and your guests with plenty of country-style comfort and relaxation.

This inviting, homely cottage is located right next to the Farmer's Arms Hotel and opposite the famous Sunday Markets. It's also close to some of Daylesford’s most popular attractions. If you enjoy a bit of nature, the Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens and Lake Daylesford are just a four-minute car ride from Wayward Cottage. If you are looking to bask in the famed thermal waters of Spa Country, the springs are just a ten-minute drive from the property.

Entering the cottage, you will be greeted by a short hallway with polished floorboards that leads to the cosy living area. This space boasts clean, white walls, industrial polished floors, plush sectionals, and modern recessed lighting. Here, you can easily catch up on your favourite TV series or movies, as the living room features a Netflix-ready TV & DVD player. During winter, you can snuggle in front of the gas fireplace with a hot drink.

Beyond the living room is a modern, open-plan kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is equipped with a bread maker, gas cooktop, microwave oven, refrigerator, and crockery, making it the perfect place to whip up a home-cooked meal that you can enjoy at the 6-seater dining table. Facing this area are glass sliding doors that frame the picturesque farmlands beyond. Step outside and you will find a deck area that is perfect for alfresco dining and barbecues. This area looks out over the expansive garden where you can have a picnic under the shade of a tree or let your dog run around in the fully-fenced yard.

When you're ready to retire, the cottage offers three bedrooms that can comfortably sleep up to six people. Two of the bedrooms feature a queen size bed, while the third bedroom has a king size bed that can be converted into two single beds upon request. All bedrooms have electric blankets for colder evenings. The bedrooms share a common bathroom that features a bathtub, perfect for soaking your cares away.
