The NeighborhoodMetcalfe is an amazingly quiet, tranquil village considering how close it is to Melbourne - and it is exceptionally beautiful country too, with undulating farms overseen by huge gum trees, and steep hills covered with bush. The breathtaking natural features The Cascades and Turpins Falls are both in Metcalfe, and it is close to Mt Alexander, Black Hill Reserve, and Malmsbury with its botanic gardens and historic viaduct. 15 minutes away is Piper Street in Kyneton with its chef's-hatted restaurants; it's not much further to the historic goldfields towns of Castlemaine, Maldon and Bendigo; and both the Daylesford spa country and the Mt Macedon region, including Hanging Rock and Trentham Falls, are little more than half an hour away. There are many wineries in the region such as Coliban just up the road, and Sutton Grange only ten minutes away. You could drive up to Lake Eppalock or to the Heathcote wine region too. The quiet little hamlet of Metcalfe is positioned at the centre of all the attractions of Central Victoria, so it makes a great place to base your holiday. Getting AroundMost guests will prefer to have their own car, but we could pick you up from Kyneton Station if you are happy to have a quiet, peaceful time on the property. The Cascades are a good walk away, and we can provide tasty, healthy meals (at extra cost) which means that you can stay on the property if you want! Other Things to NoteThis property is perfect either for those who have a strong interest in organic growing, or for those who simply want a relaxing, peaceful holiday in beautiful surroundings. The wood heater in the bungalow creates a warm, cosy atmosphere and is in keeping with the natural surroundings. A high-quality split-system air-conditioner and heater ensures you can stay cool in summer and backs up the wood heater in other seasons to ensure constant comfort. The bed is queen size and very comfortable. The bungalow's kitchen includes a fridge, microwave, two-burner electric hotplate, pots, crockery, cutlery and sink for basic meals preparation.
