Daylesford Longhouse is a place of residence, working farm and cooking school – all in one. While most houses provide a sense of retreat from the outside world, Daylesford Longhouse brings the outside in, allowing guests to enjoy both the farm life and the comfort of a home.

Drawing inspiration from River Cottage and the 70’s series ‘The Good Life’, Daylesford Longhouse is the culmination of owners Trace and Ronnen’s passion for food & cooking, animal husbandry, gardening and self-sufficiency.

Additional Information

Daylesford Longhouse is composed of living quarters, a garden kitchen and a working farm building – all within one, long shed structure. The house is not your usual weekender – it has been designed for living, working, storing and making. It is intentionally active and demands constant care and attention from owners Trace & Ronnen, be it milking a cow, making cheese or pruning a tree. It is a place that takes you back to the fundamentals of living.

The living quarters, located above the garden kitchen, include the fully-furnished bedrooms, a kitchen and dining space that accommodates up to 4 guests. Guests are free to enjoy the lounge area, the sauna, the six-foot clawfoot bathtub and the outdoor bathroom. Guests can treat themselves to a bird-eye’s view of the house from the viewing platform or stay indoors and watch Netflix on our fully-integrated smart TV. Wood-fire heating and electric blankets are available year-round. Luxuries include fine bed linen from IN BED store and Aesop body products. A Nespresso machine and Nespresso pods will be provided, along with Free WiFi.

Bedroom 1: 1x Queen
Bedroom 2: 1x Queen
Accommodates: Maximum 4x Guets

Guests have their own private Kitchen with farmhouse zinc bench top and sinks. The Kitchenaid mixer, Smeg cook-top and oven, Arabia Ruska ceramics and cooking utensils that will satisfy your desire to cook with the produce in the Daylesford region. The pantry will be stocked with kitchen essentials (flour, oil etc) and basic breakfast items are provided (milk, butter, jam, bread, eggs) upon your arrival.

The working farm is home to dogs, cows, pigs, hens and goats, and is constantly being tended to by Trace & Ronnen. Guests will be treated to a tour of the farm and the Longhouse during their visit.

Set minutes from the idyllic town of Daylesford in central Victoria, the elevated property looks out over vast plains and bushland across Daylesford, Hepburn Springs and Mt Franklin.

Roaming The Farm

The perfect Sunday morning activity! We’re so grateful to Ronnen for giving us our very own private soap-making lesson! Using ingredients derived from the farm, we learnt how to make lush, fresh soap. A dream!...
