Picture-perfect Daylesford cottage

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

Summer or winter, hail or shine; there is no bad time to retreat to Kings Cottage for a Daylesford weekend away. This quaint cottage is tucked away in a quiet street towards the lake-end of Daylesford and glimpses of the sparkling lake are visible from a handful of vantage points within the cottage. When you want to get closer to the town’s most photogenic body of water, the banks of the lake are less than a 10-minute walk away.

It might be a while before you see the lake up close however, because you will no doubt be too bewitched with the charms of Kings Cottage to want to leave too soon. The cottage wraps around a central courtyard, offering two wing-like spaces that each house a king bedroom and ensuite with spa bath. The third and largest section of the cottage has the full kitchen, living and dining area plus a separate snug with wood-burning fireplace. This nook is a toasty spot for pre-dinner tipples or relaxing with a cup of tea as you flick through a magazine.

Another walk to take while at Kings Cottage is the stroll into the township’s centre. Vincent Street is a buzzing strip peppered with cafes, provedores, restaurants and shops. Duck in and out of the boutiques before nabbing a table at a cosy eatery and tucking into your chosen plate for breakfast or lunch. Order another coffee to go to nurse as you walk back to the Cottage, perhaps taking a detour to finally meander around the lake. You might have also picked up some provisions for dinner, which you can cook up on the barbecue and enjoy in the courtyard.

For travellers that like their getaways with added environmentally-friendly flair, Kings Cottage offers a Tesla wall connector.
