About the property

A beautifully appointed English country style home, positioned just 200m from the Trentham Village centre, is set on a quiet Elm-tree lined street, and offers an unrivalled experience for two guests. Your discerning hosts, Helen Lindsay (well known retired Florist) and Bryan Frost (horticulturist, known to many from his time as an ABC presenter and their business In Full Bloom in South Melbourne) provide a warm welcome to their home and ensure a delightful and memory-filled stay.

Meticulously decorated with antiques, including those from Bryan’s family home in Devon, the house offers a rich and comfortable setting for your visit.

The accommodation offers a private light-filled bedroom for two guests with en-suite and television. A separate sitting room with television, DVD and assortment of books and magazines provides an elegant and comfortable retreat for relaxation.

An indulgent continental breakfast is provided with options for a full English breakfast. Bryan’s culinary skills combined with Helen’s entertaining talents are legendary - an evening around “The Aga” will provide long term memories.

Whether you are looking to relax and unwind or indulge in local activities or even participate in a bespoke botanical workshop put together by your hosts – a stay at Hollyoak House is just the place for you.

Delightful charming and cosy

  • 5 of 5

I had one night at Hollyoak with Helen and Bryan who made me feel at home from the start. It was extremely homely and beautifully furnished with hosts who were considerate and charming. I had a very enjoyable stay, the bed was very comfortable and breakfast delicious. The garden was gorgeous although not in full bloom as it was autumn.
