Garden-fringed cottage

Property reviewed by Stephanie Mikkelsen

Illoura is a cottage that looks as though it has been pulled straight from the pages of a beautifully illustrated storybook. It sits within gorgeously manicured gardens – all blossoming flowerbeds and verdant lawns – and delivers a cosy and elegant retreat for up to four guests.

Pull up to this weatherboard getaway and eagerly unlock the green front door. Inside, guests discover a warm hideaway that has the charm of a cottage and the rustic appeal of a lodge. It is a blend of wooden floorboards and light-hued walls, rich timber furnishings and pastel textiles.

There are two elegant bedrooms and the master suite boasts an ensuite with doors that open onto the front deck. This outdoor space has its own an alfresco setting; a peaceful perch for one couple to enjoy the first cup of tea of a morning or a quiet afternoon tipple. The second bedroom has a dressing area and its own bathroom too, located just across the hallway.

Guests travelling with another pair or with family will find themselves congregating in the snug lounge. It has a wood-burning fireplace and a large television, allowing guests to gather for movie nights, Netflix sessions or to simply devour the Koko Black Chocolates provided. A design favourite in this space is the striking antler-inspired chandelier. The living room adjoins the country kitchen that centres on a circular dining table. There is plenty of bench space for prepping breakfasts or snacks-on-the-go, however guests that would rather not cook will find ample dining options in Hepburn Springs township or in neighbouring Daylesford.
