Rural tranquility amidst majestic gums

Pet friendly stone, cedar and iron gem

Nestled on the edge of the Wombat State Forest and just 7 minutes from Daylesford, Gumnut Cottage beckons you. Set amongst majestic white gums, Gumnut Cottage is a pet-friendly, fully self-contained getaway for two. Built of stone, cedar and iron, Gumnut Cottage offers a loft bedroom with Queen bed, open plan living/dining/kitchen and spacious deck with views of Kangaroo Creek. With all the modern amenities you’d expect in Daylesford, including free WiFi, reverse cycle air conditioning, barbecue and full kitchen, Gumnut Cottage is full of character and charm. Native wildlife abounds on this six and a half acre property, attracted to the peace and tranquillity of the surrounds. Take a wander and say hello to the resident miniature pony and the goats. Or, find a spot by the creek to enjoy your favourite bottle of wine. If you are yearning for a taste of the good life, Gumnut Cottage welcomes you.

Stayed at Gumnut Cottage

The setting was beautiful. Quiet and secluded yet only 5-10 mins from Daylesford. The facilities were all modern, and the fireplace was fantastic on the cold nights. Penni was a lovely host too.
