The Farm at Clydesdale

The Farm at Clydesdale is a fabulous property to escape to, for the weekend or longer (for instance during the school holidays) – it’s a real experience of country life.  The Farm sits on 50 acres of farmland which includes 500 meters of creek frontage and bush, where you can explore to your heart’s content.  Set amongst the rolling hills of Clydesdale, this property will not disappoint.  This is a very comfortable home with crisp and fresh styling,  3 bedrooms sleeping up to 6 people (and an option to sleep an extra), a bathroom with the  shower over the bath, a separate toilet, with open living and dining.  The full kitchen includes a dishwasher and coffee pod machine and is freshly appointed and the deck is spacious with outdoor seating.

Fantastic for a family because there is plenty for the kids to explore – from the cubby house, trampoline and swing set to the paddocks and the creek.  There are 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside from the farmhouse so keep an eye on the kids exploits, while you relax in the afternoon sun on the deck.

The Farm is a 9-minute drive to Newstead, a thriving vibrant town on the Loddon River;  and Daylesford is about 20 minutes from the property one way with Castlemaine not far in the other direction.  The surrounding towns have some great shopping, and the weekend markets are heaps of fun for everyone.
