Property type cottage

About the property

Lynden is a historic cottage conveniently located in the centre of Trentham. It provides a perfect location for couples or families seeking a quiet weekend away or a relaxing holiday. Set among other traditional weatherboard homes in one of Trentham’s more historic streets, Lynden Cottage is a 3 minute walk from the town centre, while also being in easy walking distance of the beautiful Wombat State Forest.

Lynden Cottage was built in 1884, and has been fully renovated while trying to maintain its original charm. The floors have recently been polished. A new kitchen provides all modern features, including dishwasher and microwave oven, along with a beautiful baltic pine table that seats 10. There are three bedrooms able to accommodate 7 people, one with a king size bed, another with a queen size bed (and TV), and the third with a bunk bed and a single bed. All beds have electric blankets. There is a washing machine and the house is set on a large half acre block with a large round spring free trampoline. A semi-restored miner's shack dating back to the 1860s is just behind the cottage.

We are pet friendly. The yard is fully fenced and secure. You are welcome to bring your dog inside, but we do ask that you do not bring them into the bedrooms, or allow them on the furniture. We also ask that you clean up after your pet (eg hair, droppings) as much as possible.

Please note that a small cottage at the rear of the property is used, on occasional weekends, by my parents. This cottage is set well away from the main house, and there is a screen to ensure privacy.

Trentham Falls, at over 30 m high and Victoria’s longest single drop waterfall, is only 2 km away. Lyonville mineral springs is 10 km away, while Daylesford, Kyneton and Woodend are each a 20 minute drive away.

A short stroll away you have access to great cafes, Red Beard bakery, and the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

Cute, cozy, charming cottage with good amenities

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is well positioned with just a 5 min stroll to Trentham which has a couple of good pubs, bakeries, cafes and stores. The house worked well for 3 adults and 3 kids, bedrooms and beds were comfortable and the kitchen has everything you might need to self-cater. Decent TV and reception, with a DVD player, made entertaining the kids easy when the weather got a bit nasty. And there is a great wood heater, with plenty of pre-chopped wood to keep it warm. Trentham is also roughly only 20km from Daylesford and Woodend/Kyneton so well positioned.

Fantastic cottage in the heart of Trentham

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful stay at Lynden Cottage... the photos don't do it justice. It's a genuine cottage experience, with super comfortable beds, and glorious garden where we spent a lot of time. A short walk into town. Highly recommend.

Loved every minute

  • 5 of 5

We had a romantic getaway to Lynden cottage. The cottage is tastefully decorated with many interesting and quirky touches. While it was very cold outside, the electric heaters in the bedroom and the wood fire in the living room made it lovely and cosy ionside. We definitely recommend staying here if you want somewhere quiet to stay in the spa country with so much to do and see.

So good we stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Lynden Cottage was comfortably rustic and extremely well equipped. Great kitchen and terrific bed lights. Very handy to the excellent dining options in Trentham and we also enjoyed a game of golf. It was good to meet Paul and hear a bit of the history of this well loved family home.
