affordable old miners cottage, original, sleep 4, edge of Daylesford

Trewin's, sitting on half an acre of bush, was built around the 1860’s and is one of the oldest miner’s cottages in Daylesford

Trewins, sitting on half an acre of bush, was built around the 1860’s and is one of the oldest miner’s cottages in Daylesford.  Owners have maintained much of the authentic feel, and a stay at Trewins with its old iron bed, simple kitchen and basic facilities, takes you back in time to a bygone era.  Experience life when it was rustic and rudimentary. The kitchenette is equipped with some modern appliances, a hot plate, microwave, kettle and toaster plus there is a slow cooker, so bring supplies for a casserole, which will work a treat (no dishwasher).  The cottage is on tank water, beautiful rainwater, so 3 minute showers are preferred.

A wood fire in the living room warms the house and there are stand-alone heaters in the bedrooms which are rustically romantic and old fashioned; one bedroom has a queen bed, the other a double.  There are no doors on the bedrooms, simply a curtain for privacy.  You can curl up on the sofa in the sunroom and pick a book or a board game from the library, watch the trotters doing their paces in the paddock next door, or sit on the patio with a glass of wine.
