About the property

With the attractions and restaurants of Daylesford and Hepburn spa country only five minutes away, Hollow Log Estate is the ideal getaway for busy people and their dogs.

Two-time winner of Holidaying with Dogs' prestigious Five Paw Award, Hollow Log Estate offers a choice of two superb, self-contained cottages set on 23 acres overlooking the peaceful Wombat State Forest (also see listing for Hollow Log Stoney).

The spacious and stylish two-bedroom Cottage is decorated with a mid-century feel. With queen-sized beds, one that can be converted to singles, it comfortably sleeps up to four people, making it perfect for two couples, friends or a family getaway. The Cottage is suitable for one or two dogs. Any more than this would need to be negotiated with the owner.

The Cottage is surrounded by beautiful established gardens. Enjoy the abundant wildlife from your fenced front balcony, magnificent sunsets over the forest, or take one of the many forest walks from your doorstep. The Cottage comes with all the trimmings for the perfect, relaxing break. A generous breakfast hamper is provided for your first morning and you'll receive a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolate.

The Cottage offers:

- Two queen beds (one able to be converted to singles)

- Quality linen and electric blankets, towels provided

- Reverse cycle heating/air-conditioning

- Ned Kelly wood fire

- Flat screen television, CD/radio player with iPod dock

- A selection of DVDs, games and books

- Fridge, microwave, oven with hotplates, dishwater and fully-equipped kitchen

- Plunger coffee and assorted teas

- BBQ and outdoor setting

- Bathroom with washing machine, iron and ironing board

Hollow Log Estate is truly dog-friendly. Dogs are welcome across the property and inside the cottages. There's a fully fenced, dog play area, dams to swim in and a large outdoor dog bath with hot water. We appreciate that your dog is part of the family.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This is the most wonderful place to stay particularly if you have dogs. Beautifully appointed and set up and everything feels inclusive for both you and the dogs. So much space to excercise and just enjoy the beauty of Daylesford.

My partner and my fur baby, Louie and I had a lovely weekend at Hollow Log. So nice to have safe areas for Louie to play and for him to be as welcome as we were.

Anyone needing a break with their 4 legged buddies must try Hollow Log. Thank you Ali and Lisa

Puppy 5 Star

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 beautiful labradors) had the best visit at Hollow Log. We spent 3 nights there and hardly left the propoerty. Daylesford has lots to offer but it was far too much fun spending time together "at home" as a family in a safe, stress-free, comfortable, well-appointed property. We even met some nice fellow-residents (Joe!) for Kauri & Bandon to play with.

Thank you Ally & Lisa for making our stay so memorable!

Fantastic place to stay for humans and dogs alike!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful four day stay at Hollow Log Cottage. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with the added bonus of the wood fire which was much appreciated on chilly evenings. It was a relief for us to be able to let our dogs explore in the enormous fully fenced exercise area and not have to worry about them escaping. Ali and Lisa were very helpful with places to visit and we loved seeing Lucky the two week old lamb that they had adopted and were bottle feeding. We will definitely be visiting Hollow Log again.

Great time

  • 5 of 5

Four dogs and three people had an amazing time at this property. It's in a beautiful quiet location and the walking nearby is lovely. The securely fenced yard was wonderful for all our dogs to enjoy runs together. The house was well stocked and comfortable for all occupants.
