Stoneywood Farm & Garden Stay

Bedrooms 2
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Our beautiful rural retreat nestled in the foothills of the Kinglake ranges and surrounded by majestic views to the hills of the Plenty Valley region. Hidden in a secluded valley of lakes and pastures, you can relax and take in the tranquil surrounds.

On this beautifully appointed 23 acre property you will relax in a country style homestead with the warmth of the fire, large windows & wide verandas to take in the views.

Take a leisurely wander through the gardens to discover the vineyard of Cabernet, Pinot Noir, and Merlot grapes, an orchard consisting of a mixture of fruit and nut trees & our gently undulating pastures where our friendly goats, highland cows and kangaroos reside.

When finished in the garden, you can retreat to the enclosed solar heated pool, or take a hill top walk up to the cattlemen’s hut, filled with Australian character. Up at the cattleman’s hut you can relax as you look out over the spectacular views spanning across the Plenty Valley, from Toorourrong reservoir on one side, to Yan Yean reservoir on the other.

In the evenings unwind in front of an open fireplace in the large sitting room, or entertain friends in the meals/family zone with its wood fires burning. This elegant cedar country house also boasts Tasmanian Oak kitchen with quality appliances, master bedroom with ensuite and walk-in robe, an additional robed bedroom and bathroom with custom designed red gum furnishings.

A short drive from everything that Whittlesea has to offer including Funfields, 20 minutes from Melbourne’s outskirts and 40 minutes from Melbourne airport– this standout property enjoys world-class views that are simply a must-see.

Beauitful place.

We stayed at Stoneywood farm these Chrissy holidays and had a fantastic time! The house was neat, tidy and they had everything you needed for families. The indoor pool is a great bonus for the kids over Summer, and our hosts were warm and hospitable :)

Such a gorgeous luxurious home, close to Melbourne, spectacular gardens, cute animals, private pool, the most beautiful views, great playground for the kids and very hospitable owners. Everything was above our expectations. Such a lovely holiday retreat and very relaxing. We are recommending Stoneywood to our friends and looking forwards to our next stay.
