Anthony
Bidwell is a peaceful country retreat in the heart of Daylesford, set privately at the back of a leafy garden allotment on a quiet no-through-road that leads down to Lake Daylesford. It is very close to the famous Amazing Mill Markets antiques emporium, and within walking distance of both the Lake and Daylesford’s main street with its shops, restaurants and cafes. The cottage has a gas heater as well as a wood burner with plenty of firewood supplied. A new split-system air conditioner has also recently been installed. As well as the queen-size bed in the bedroom, there is a double sofa bed in the lounge. Free WiFi is provided, as well as the Netflix and Stan streaming services on the smart TV. There is a secure fenced garden and pets are also welcome inside the cottage. The long west-facing deck has outdoor seating and a gas barbecue. There is ample on-site parking available. (You might also like to consider one of our other two cottages in nearby Hepburn Springs: Bonnie Brae Cottage, which is also pet-friendly, and Croft Cottage.)
After living in London for many years, we decided to move to Melbourne for a lifestyle change. And then, after just 2 years in the city, we decided on a tree change in the Daylesford/Hepburn Springs area, as we had holidayed here previously and fell in love with it, as it has both European and Australian characteristics and charms. I run the holiday let businesses with the help of my partner Andrew. I am more hands-on with cleaning and preparing our cottages for guests and greeting them and making sure everything is to their liking. Andrew is more behind the scenes, ensuring our reservations system and other IT systems and facilities are working well. We make a great team and love welcoming new and returning guests to experience our cottages and all that the beautiful Daylesford/Hepburn Springs region has to offer.
