About the property

Ideally located 10 to 20 minutes from Daylesford, Kyneton, Glenlyon, Malmsbury and Trentham, and surrounded by some of Victoria's best wineries, farmers markets, dining experiences, shopping and awe-inspiring landscapes, The Farmhouse is a labour of love for internationally acclaimed landscape designer, Paul Bangay.

Nestled off the well-worn tourist track The Farmhouse is set 100 meters from the main house and garden of Stonefields, Paul's country residence. Boasting nine stunning gardens the property has been transformed and flourished from a bare paddock into an incredible storybook retreat. Guests can book a time to explore Stonefields iconic main garden during their stay. This once in a lifetime opportunity, for the weary traveller, garden aficionado and day-tripper alike, offers a glimpse into the magic and majesty of Paul's design.

Please take as many photos of the garden as you wish and if uploading them on social media add the hashtags #paulbangay #stonefields to share your shots.

Chic and comfortable by design, the furnishings provide generous proportions, luxe furnishing and the international design that has influenced Paul's own home. Surrounded by French doors, each room looks out onto either vast swathes of flowering perennials or cascading groves of crab apples and fruit trees.

The Farmhouse, perfect for couples, friends or family gatherings, boasts four bedrooms, two with an ensuite, a large sitting room complete with wood fire heater, generous dining room and an open-plan kitchen that has been cooked in and given the tick of approval by friend Stephanie Alexander.

Located an 80-minute leisurely drive from Melbourne, The Farmhouse is the perfect corner of the universe to laze away today, or use as a base to explore the regions world-class activities and attractions.

Guests staying in 2016: Well appointed, so welcoming with house heating on, curtains open. Fabulous treats. The Head Gardner took time out to talk to us. We loved our time three friends catching up in beautiful quiet surrounds.

Guests staying in 2015: The house was even better than I expected. we had 10 people in the house (including 2 small ones) and it never felt crowded. it was immaculate and stylish and peaceful and beautiful. beds were comfortable lounge was comfortable. the grounds are of course amazing! A fabulous country getaway.

Guests staying in 2015: Our stay at the Stonefields The Farmhouse met all expectations, so spacious yet cosy. We had such an enjoyable time with our family. Our son is a Chef and so the wonderfully equipped kitchen, beautiful platters etc. were fully utilized and greatly appreciated as were his culinary skills. The Stonefields garden walk was a delight. We can't wait to return, Paul has another fan.

Paul Bangay The Farmhouse

Perfect weather and a perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

Paul Bangay's 'Stonefields' was the reason for the 3 day stay. The accommodation at the adjacent 'Farmhouse' made the whole trip perfect. It has location, views, comfort and quietness - and all in a week of beautiful Autumn weather. Six avid gardeners enjoyed the space, private suites and the basket of provisions!
