Our lovely stone cottage is set on 6 acres of native Australian bushland. The house is positioned on top of the hill in the heart of Chewton Bushlands and provides amazing views across to Mount Macedon and Mount Franklin. Enjoy your days and evening looking out to the views and on those cold nights snuggle up in front of the fire.
Ukamirra is "off the grid" with solar power, tank water and gas hot-water (like most properties in Chewton Bushlands). The cottage is made of stone from the property and is set on a large platform featuring native Australian plants. There are two bedrooms, both with queen size beds. A comfy lounge and separate kitchen/dining areas with everything you need to cook up a wonderful dinner party.
We share our land with the local wildlife, so you can expect kangaroos and many native birds on the property. This is a gorgeous, private and quiet place to relax and unwind and you are welcome to roam.
The property has TV, DVD, WIFI, board games, Netflix, BBQ (gas), wood burners (lounge and kitchen), indoor and outdoor seating (6 seater options).
Given we are off the grid and on tank water, guest are requested to bring their own linen (i..e, fitted sheet, doona cover, pillow cases, towels). There are pillows and queen size duvets on each bed.
During summer the house stays relatively cool given the stone construction and each room is provided a pedestal fan. There is an old oak tree on the platform that provided the perfect spot to take shelter from the sun for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All doors and windows have fly screens.
Castlemaine and Chewton are 10 minutes away with many coffee shops, restaurants, pubs and boutique stores with plenty to see and do. A great area for bushwalking and bit of outdoor activities. There is always the Saturday market in Chewton and many others throughout the region.
**Please note we have a 2 night minimum stay and 3 nights on long-weekends**
