Home Flat House

 

Home Flat House is a recently renovated, fully self-contained house now available for short-term and longer-stay accommodation. Located only a 10 minute drive to the local townships of Axedale or Goornong, 20 minutes to Elmore and less than 30 minutes to Bendigo or Heathcote, the house is ideally located to explore all that these townships and the Central Victoria region has to offer.

The house, located on our 1,000 acre, working shorthorn cattle and merino sheep property features a picturesque rural outlook with open grazing alongside the Campaspe River.  The house overlooks one of several Campaspe River flats on the property, specifically that referred to by us as the ‘Home Flat’.

There is a fenced yard (with ample parking space) and beyond that, plenty of space to explore. Guests can enjoy the ambience of the house and its yard and are also welcome to explore the surrounding paddocks and the river where there are plentiful opportunities for walking, fishing (you’ll need to bring your own rod), bird watching, painting, photography, a picnic or quiet relaxation ….. please just remember that paddocks may have livestock in them or farm machinery may be in use, so it’s important to close any gates! ….. and you may wish to bring your gumboots.

The house, which can accommodate 5 people, comprises 3 bedrooms (2 x queen bedrooms, 1 x single bedroom), galley style kitchen, bathroom with separate toilet, dining area, lounge room with wood fire, laundry facilities and a rear deck with sweeping views across the farm.

Standard provisions include milk, tea & coffee, and for breakfast we provide fresh bread and farm fresh eggs from our free range hens (sufficient to cover the first morning of your stay). The kitchen includes an oven, refrigerator, kettle, toaster and microwave, and cookware and utensils are provided. There is also a gas barbecue available. All linen and towels are provided.

Tractors and livestock are a part of our normal daily life. You may see us from the distance working with the cattle or sheep or operating other farm machinery, otherwise the place is yours to enjoy in peace. Home Flat House is located well away (about 600m) from the main farm house, and accessed via its own driveway off the main road, for guests that want to have their own privacy and space to relax and unwind.

We are happy to provide information about our farm, amenities in the local area and special places of interest to visit so please feel free to ask.
