Overview

About the property

Luxury self-contained accommodation with stunning garden setting, located in the heart of the Yarra Valley

Set on 70 acres of rolling meadows, Lonsdale Park on the Yarra offers a luxury accommodation experience in the heart of the picturesque Yarra Valley. Just a 10 minute drive form Healesville or a one-hour drive from Melbourne - Lonsdale Park on the Yarra offers expansive views over the bordering Yarra River where guests are invited to relax and indulge in exquisite natural beauty.

The meticulously decorated and architecturally designed bedrooms, living area and kitchen present open and light-filled spaces for guests to enjoy. Floor-to-ceiling windows in every room allow immersion in the magnificent surrounding garden.

Likened to a mini botanical park by visitors, the two-acre landscaped garden was nominated to be a part of the Australian Open Garden Scheme in November 2014. Meandering pathways reach light, open spaces and cool shaded alcoves where light filters through an abundance of both native and European flowers, bushes and trees. The flora changes its colour and form all year round; there is always something different to enjoy, even in the wintertime.

With a focus on sustainability, solar panels provide for the hot water, biodynamic gardening principles are applied in caring for the garden, and the house itself is designed according to passive solar building fundamentals.

The abundance of positive feedback from guests has made Lonsdale Park on the Yarra a popular destination, a place where visitors from all around the globe have chosen to experience the beauty unique to this part of the world – including recent guests from Germany, Singapore, Malaysia, China and New Zealand.

Lonsdale Park on the Yarra is an ideal place for many different kinds of groups to gather and enjoy time together. Families, friends, wedding parties, work colleagues and more are invited to make themselves at home in this secluded, self-contained accommodation.

Lonsdale Park on the Yarra was also featured on 2013 Channel 9's Postcards 'Great Escapes' episode.

Flawless

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property with a beautiful atmosphere.

My family and I had a fantastic experience over the course of 2 nights in this great home, or to what we referred to it as - 'The Mansion', as it is fairly significant in size and quite accommodating for 4 couples.

Close to most top wineries in the region, not to mention general stores for supplies, it was an ideal location to stay in the Yarra Valley and you can bet your bottom dollar we will be back!

Thank you.

An amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A perfect house for 3 couples to stay for a weekend or much longer. Beautiful location a 5 minute walk from the Yarra River and extremely well equipped. We all raved about the place and will come back again.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

My bridesmaids and I stayed here for my wedding and we couldn't have hoped for a more beautiful property to get ready in. Martina, the property owner, was a delight to deal with and made the booking and stay process seamless. If you're looking for a large well-styled house surrounded by beautiful gardens I would definitely recommend this one!
