The Church at Lyonville | 3 Bedrooms | 1.5 Bathroom | Incredible Refurbished 1920s Church

The Church at Lyonville is a unique church conversion, redesigned as a three-bedroom dwelling and tastefully furnished in a classic style. The Church boasts a unique charm, with stained glass windows, a soaring ceiling and many other original features lovingly incorporated into the space. The Church is ideally suited to either families or groups of couples, sleeping six guests across three bedrooms.

Guests have exclusive access to half an acre of private, park style gardens, surrounding the Church, which are ideal for either lawn games, long lunches or just relaxing under the sprawling oak tree.

Originally constructed in the 1920s, The Church at Lyonville has a unique mix of character, charm and comfort.

The living area is open plan, with a large dining table, gorgeous couch, stylish seating and fully equipped country kitchen (including a confessional, remodelled as a walk-in pantry).  Light floods into the living areas through arched, stained-glass windows, providing a truly incredible atmosphere. Lyonville’s history as a timber milling town in the Victorian gold rush era is apparent throughout the property with rich brown panelling and views to the neighbouring Wombat Forest.  At night, guests can light a wood fire to create a truly special ambience.

Each of the three bedrooms have large (and super comfy) beds, with two bedrooms furnished with a Queen and one with a King split bed. One bedroom sits in a mezzanine, which overlooks the living area and has its own hinged stain glass window, which opens to views down to the outdoor deck and gardens. The two downstairs bedrooms also have garden views and large wardrobes for guest storage. There is also a stylish, modern bathroom which is fitted with a walk-in shower and a separate spa bath. The Church also has a second toilet. The outdoor bungalow provides additional flexibility and is set up with toys as a children’s playroom.

The Church is well-appointed with welcome hamper of locally sourced products and treats, including tea and coffee, and also full kitchen amenities, linen, toiletries, BBQ, etc.

The magnificent gardens perfectly showcase the seasonal character of the Daylesford region all year round. A north facing outdoor deck, BBQ and choice of lawn games are provided for guests’ enjoyment.

Lyonville is located close to Daylesford, Hepburn Springs, Trentham, Glenlyon, Kyneton and surrounding areas. The Church is a fantastic place to escape the bustle of the city and get back to nature, all whilst being close to all that the region has to offer. Lyonville is also home to the famous Radio Springs Hotel (bookings are a must) and outdoors lovers will enjoy the 6km forest walk to Trentham, along the picturesque rail trail.

We loved the Church.


Loved the freshly picked flowers on the table and the garden was also blooming and so lovely. The Church was cosy, with a fire place, good cooking facilities, good water supply ( hot and cold) and very comfortable beds. Also lots of reading material, and games. Close to everything we needed! Thankyou for having us stay at this beautiful place.

We had a fantastic time!


Lovely converted church beautifully appointed. Was very cosy & relaxing for a weekend away.



Beautiful converted church, had a wonderful stay during winter!

The perfect spot for a weekend escape!


Not to be missed, lovely, charming and private. With beautiful views.

Absolutely gorgeous church set amongst beautiful luscious gardens.


Incredibly cozy and comfortable with a fire, spa bath, comfy beds and a large and practical kitchen! Amazing stay- close to Trentham and Daylesford but more peaceful and scenic than both! Couldn't recommend the Church highly enough- we will be back.

We had an excellent short break with friends at the beautiful Church conversion.


The space was great for two couples. Plenty of thoughtful touches and easily the best welcome hamper we’ve had in a while. We had a great lunch at Passing Clouds down the road on our host’s recommendation. A beautiful place to stay and a great escape from city life.

We had a fantastic stay!


I got ready for my wedding at the church, the location was absolutely spectacular. Everything was perfect, they provided everything we needed for our stay from firewood to some local chocolate and tea. We cannot wait to visit again.

The Church is beautiful and unique and full of thoughtful and stylish touches.


The welcome gift was generous and the house was impeccably clean and beautifully presented. We loved looking out to the beautiful gardens and exploring the nearby towns of Trentham and Daylesford.

This was my third stay.


It was a first for my parents and sister, though, who absolutely LOVED it as much as me. It was the perfect post Mother's Day mother's day, plus a refresh and rejuvenate with all that fresh air, for my father who had heart surgery earlier this year. All in all the best place for peace and quiet, the perfect lunch or dinner spot around the corner at Radio Springs Hotel (never disappoints) and if you wanted to spend 24/7 indoors then everything is there for a truly wonderful stay.

The photos do not even do justice of how beautiful the church is.


The afternoon light floated through the stained glass windows and every moment felt like a movie. So many thoughtful touches, the most stunning garden, I felt completely at peace. Also I loved that you’ve kept the original confessional! I couldn’t recommend the church enough for a time to unwind, relax, discover nature and find yourself again
