Welcome to Stone & Straw...
BED AND BREAKFAST STYLE ACCOMMODATION and activities - DAYLESFORD/hepburn springs region
Stone and Straw Retreat is a European style b&b with 5 bedrooms in total. A great place for groups to stay with a romantic separate suite at the end of the building. Adjacent to the accommodation is an activities studio and treatment room in our eco friendly straw bale building. Set amidst 5 acres of landscaped gardens near Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, this is the perfect location to unwind and relax.
The Activities Studio@Stone & Straw is a large space constructed of strawbales making it cool in summer and warm in winter with breathable healthy properties. We have a number of activities starting in 2019 such as glass art workshops, music afternoons, yoga and meditation, art classes, cooking workshops, sharing stories and school holiday programs and these will be publicised on our facebook page as well as our events page on this site. Workshops can be customised to suit your group.
Stone and Straw can also offer snacks, lunches, evening meals and refreshments.
Here @ Stone & Straw Retreat, we are proud of our ongoing efforts to offer an authentic eco friendly living environment. With our multiple rain water catchments, solar panels, vegetable and herb garden and waste water treatment plant, Stone & Straw is becoming increasingly self sufficient.
The great variety of colourful birds and native wildlife surrounding Stone & Straw are a delight to experience. For those guests wanting to explore on foot or bike, there are many walking/cycling tracks including the Goldfields Track at our doorstep. The temptations of The Chocolate Mill are a mere 500 metres away, whilst Hepburn Springs is a short 5 minute drive, where the famous Hepburn Bath House and Spa is located.
The Central Highlands region is home to a great variety of restaurants, wine and cider bars and pubs as well as a vibrant art and music scene
