Winter is well and truly here. A season spoiling us with misty, colourful sunrises and cosy evenings in front of crackling fires. For us, it is a time of indulgence when we treat ourselves to mulled wines, hearty food, warm clothes, and relaxing spa treatments.

The cooler winter months are a great time to be creative and explore arts and crafts. We are lucky to have a plethora of different nearby workshops to choose from. On your next visit, why not try your hand at crafting your own silver ring, making your own cheese or even attending a gin blending masterclass?

We are also excited to sponsor and welcome the Inaugural Daylesford Pride Cup to our events calendar on 13 July. The Cup is a partnership between the Daylesford Football Netball Club and ChillOut Festival and will along with games feature a sit-down lunch with guest speakers, kids entertainment and more.
