If you fancy the idea of the ‘good life’… if you want to escape from the bustle, big smoke and boxed food of fluorescently lit supermarkets to an existence symbiotic with nature… Elvenhome Farm can give you a taste of what you desire. This unique, eco farm-stay cottage is the brainchild of Graham Swinsburg, his passion for sustainable living leading him to create the space as a way of sharing the fulfilment found through a close relationship with the environment. This is a getaway as far removed from the daily grind as they come, and it will leave you both rejuvenated and inspired.
Set in the rolling hills surrounding the Mersey River, nestled down into native bushland, this stay seamlessly combines ecologically motivated design and organic materials with the beauty of nature all around. The eye-catching wood-carved window frames allow the flourishing rural landscape indoors, continuing to connect you with the restorative qualities of the countryside while sheltered from the elements. The cottage’s interiors feature polished bamboo floors, bohemian-feel wall tapestries and bouquets of flowers from the garden. The sun drenched living areas and pumpkin adorned patio will ensure you get your fix of vitamin D. Prepare a platter with the provisions provided to you from the farm and enjoy alfresco, drinking in the crisp air and luscious views.
This five-acre plot has been transformed into fruit orchards and kitchen gardens, with guests sharing the grounds with goats and hens that in return provide milk and eggs. Owner Graham was able to turn barren land into blossoming greens by utilising his extensive knowledge of ecology, permaculture and sustainable farming practices. As well as using his know-how to tend to the Elvenhome estate, Graham teaches on these subjects via a number of outlets — including through workshops hosted onsite. Wander the farm with your host to learn the features of sustainable building design and how to grow healthy gardens of your own. Enlist in a course and you can package a piece of this wholesome haven to take home.
While you may become so fascinated by the microcosm of the homestead you want to stay in and explore, the township of Deloraine also has some attractive activities on offer. This welcoming country community is home to marvellous bushwalking, fishing, horse riding, artisanal wares and a bounty of fresh produce. Enclosed by mountains and centred by the river, its canvas is filled with verdant forests and fields of flowers. The seasons are mirrored in the river that runs through the town, a kaleidoscope of colour captured on its glassy surface.
