Spring is such an amazing time of the year, especially so in Daylesford. We are blessed with stunning gardens and lakes to take a wander around ~ like the beautiful Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens and the iconic Lake Daylesford.
If you love to be amongst the blooms, we have many properties with amazing gardens, including Musk Manor Cottage and across the road Musk Farm Studio, Reverie 101 and Wombat Hill Cottage. See more here >>
