 “I love visiting this quaint and quirky place. The gardens, little nooks and crannies are all so splendid… Every dish we ordered was delicious and I loved the fluffy scones with jam and cream.
Interesting art, views of the gardens… A must visit when in Daylesford.”

“If you’re visiting Daylesford, this has to be on your list of places to stop by.  Absolutely stunning – the views from the bell tower, the art on display, and of course, the actual place itself.
It is honestly quite an experience, especially if you like a bit of history!”
