Comfortable & inviting cottage with a great garden to rest and relax
Really appreciated that this lovely little place is dog friendly. The cottage has a relaxed décor and is fully fenced. Great place to stay if but in a nice location with lots to explore not too far.
Thank you for your kind review. It was great having you and your fur babies and glad you had a enjoyable weekend
Relaxing for all
For four adults and one small dog, this cottage was perfect for us to enjoy a last minute getaway. We loved the decor, the fireplace (for the very chilly nights), and the balcony and gardens. We really appreciated the thoughtful touches of eggs, muffins, and milk as well as plentiful wood to fire up. The location was great for day drives to Castlemaine, Kyneton and Mt Macedon and it was lovely to walk the dog around the property. We look forward to coming back here! Thank you
We noticed that after each day we began walking more and more slowly...a great sign of relaxing in a house with all that you need and sitting on a deck that was peaceful. The sound of silence is a wonderful thing!
We had a wonderful time here whilst visutibg Woodend. The owner had thought of everything. Charming cottage.
Thank you so much! We would love to host you again!
We both enjoyed our stay at this magnificent cottage. Relaxing, cosy, quiet, tidy, attention to detail. All the comforts of home. Kitchen well equipped with all cooking utensil, bread making machine with ingredients supplied. Coffee machine with pods. Walking distance to town. Cute Alpacas on property. Prompt communication with owner. Plenty of outdoor relaxing areas, on a generous block of land well maintained. Property well hidden and offered ideal privacy.
Hello Gina & Claudio. I just stumbled across this rating so sincere apologies for not thanking you already. It is an absolute joy and a pleasure to welcome guests to Woodend and we are always so grateful for such kind words. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and would relish the opportunity to welcome you back :) Feel free to forward our facebook page to your friends :)
We have stayed in the cottage every year for the last 3 years, and wouldn't think of booking anywhere else for our regular Woodend holiday. Everything we require is available but if anything is missing or stocks are low (i.e. we go through a lot of firewood) they are brought up to the cottage quickly and with great friendliness.
We love having a full kitchen for cooking meals, and the beds are the most comfortable around.
There's true hospitality involved in the running of this place.
Woodend Cottage is a perfect vantage point to explore the Macedon Ranges. The Macedon Ranges is part of the wider Daylesford & Macedon Ranges region and so easy to get to from the heart of Melbourne; less than an hour by car, or if you prefer by train. Woodend Village Township Woodend was settled during the gold rush in the early 1800s and was the main thoroughfare for prospectors heading up through the Black Forest to Bendigo and Ballarat. Today, it’s a quiet town, but has a quintessential Australian rural village atmosphere making it a popular tourist destination. It's home to a cosmopolitan cafe culture, wine stores, bookstores and shops with an eclectic mix of old and new wares, plus a plethora of gourmet produce. Feast in Woodend There are a handful of quaint little coffee shops along High Street in Woodend. The Village Larder, our first choice for breakfast during our stay is obviously everyone else’s first choice and is usually packed. Avoid the queues and head to the Fox in the Chamber across the road. They have partnered with Woodend Neighbourhood House to offer barista training, which means you’re guaranteed good coffee. Bourkies Bakehouse, at the bottom end of High Street, boasts the best Vanilla Slice in Victoria (although so do a hundred other VIC bakeries). Still, the Bakehouse is laden with awards so it’s not hard to get something delicious here. Once you’ve worked up a thirst wandering the High Street, head to Woodend’s boutique brewery – Holgate Brewhouse. Their ales and lagers are free from preservatives, artificial colouring and flavouring, and I can personally vouch a number of them are delicious! Red Wine Bar – formerly known as Zarby’s – is one of a handful of restaurants in Woodend. Here they serve a mix of Italian and modern Australian cuisine. It can be very busy at the weekends so expect to wait a little while for main meals. There is a very good wine selection so at least you can enjoy the wait. Explore the Macedon Ranges Hanging Rock, a distinctive rock formation not far from town, is a big visitor drawcard. Not only is it a sacred place for local indigenous people, but it was also the setting used for Joan Lindsay’s infamous mystery novel Picnic at Hanging Rock. Gravity Hill is an anomaly. Also known as Anti-gravity hill, this mysterious spot just outside Woodend has confused and delighted many who have ventured to drive through. Here, the lay of the land surrounding the slight downward slope creates an optical illusion. Go there, take your car out of gear and it will appear to roll uphill against gravity. It’s somewhere on Straws Lane, but it’s not signposted in any way. Shh, it’s meant to be a local secret. Hanging Rock Winery on the slopes of Jim Jim in the Macedon Ranges is only a few kilometres from Hanging Rock. It was established in 1983 by the Ellis family with the aim of making Australia’s finest sparkling wine in the French marques style, similar to Bollinger and Krug. The winery recently won Winewise Championship Best Pre-2015 Pinot Noir for their 2014 Jim Jim Pinot Noir. Drive up the mountain for 10 minutes and you can reach the pinnacle of the Mount Macedon memorial cross. Only 5min walk from the car park you can see 360-degree views of the region. Continue along and explore the beautiful tree lined boulevard of Mount Macedon. Bushwalk, Hike and Cycle The Macedon Ranges are popular with bushwalkers, hikers, runners and cyclists. There are a number of trails to explore wending through Wombat State Forest and Mount Macedon. If you prefer something less strenuous, why not enjoy a good old fashioned picnic… just don’t read Picnic at Hanging Rock before you go! Tour the National Listed Gardens Visitors return time and time again to the Macedon Ranges to enjoy public and private spaces transformed by the art of garden design. Behind the walls of the impressive Mount Macedon mansions are some of Victoria’s finest gardens, many National Trust-listed. Local Markets The villages and hamlets in the Macedon Ranges each buzz to its own festivities celebrating local heroes and unique culture. These happen all year round. In the Macedon Ranges we’re known for lively markets that connect our communities all year long and give you a chance to shop with the locals. The Macedon Ranges is a place where you can wander the streets of sleepy towns to look for bargains or just take a walk in the bush.
