Retreat to a farm for 2 (family accommodation available).
Beautifully furnished, warm and spacious deluxe double bed room. Alpaca bedding & electric blanket. Move around a farm of alpacas, sheep, chickens & a pony. Leave the noise of the city behind. Have a good nights sleep at this quiet location.
Set in a large semi-modern home, this accommodation has been a winner with international guests for the past 9 years. Guests are treated with a warm welcome and freedom to move about. A large, spacious and colourful meals area is a bonus and is one of the best features of this accommodation. As it is on a farm, there is no transport available from the farm however, we can arrange a time where I drive you into Melton shopping precinct or the train station and pick you up at a later time. However, if you have a car, it is only a 5 minute drive to the main shopping of Melton and less to the station; located in Melton South. A comfortable country train (V-Line train) leaves from Melton station directly into the City of Melbourne; approximately every hour during non-peak times. Travel time is about 40 minutes from Melton to Southern Cross Station.
A V-line train also runs from Melton station, in the opposite direction to the West, to the historical City of Ballarat and beyond.
The meals room is a central talking area ( Set off the serving area of the kitchen for breakfast). Accommodation is in its' own private wing.
Access to the farm is from the central meals area ( commonly called "A Family Room") or from the Master Guest Room (Sliding door)
The property is on a circuit and a walk around the Circuit is a great way to experience the tranquility of other farms in the area.
*Please note this property is a work in progress and not all areas of the gardens are completed.
This accommodation is a Bed and Breakfast rather than a homestay on a farm. You have the best of two worlds. The most enjoyable part of having guests is being able to interact and exchange cultures but it's up to the guests whether they want to interact or not. The best part having a host, is the knowledge she brings of the area and the help that is provided to you (should you require it). This Property hosts students from Japan, China and a continuance of families from China and Singapore throughout the year. Also guests from Germany, America, England and Switzerland so far and local Australian guests.
For punters - Tabcorp is just a 2 minute drive from the property. It is a large Harness-racing facility on Ferris Road, Melton. (The BNB is on the corner of Ferris Road and Strathtulloh circuit - Strathtulloh. It has a large restaurant and gaming area. There are many other restaurants and pubs in Melton and really great shopping at "Woodgrove". Melton has a swim centre. Movie theatre located at the Woodgrove shopping centre, parks and gardens.
A short 10 minute drive will take you into historical Bacchus Marsh, where there are many organic farms. Drive through the "Avenue of Honour" (many farms offer fruit-picking) A further 45 minute drive will take you to historical Ballarat. Visit Ballarat Wild-life Sanctuary and Sovereign Hill. As the farm is centrally located to the City of Melbourne in the East, Ballarat in the West, Geelong and surf-coast in the South and Gisbourne in the North, it is a great way to stay for an extended period of time and really see some outstanding places with around just 1 hour drive in each direction.
Smoking is not permitted within the home.
This property is run on solar power for hot water and lighting therefore please turn off lights when not required. It is a custom in this BNB, to take off your shoes in carpeted rooms and/or if you have entered any part of the farm where shoes have entered onto animal manure.
