Phoebe’s Cottage // 2 Bedroom // 2 Bathroom // Historic 1875 Cottage



The cottage was built as part of the early Lyonville timber milling settlement in 1875 inhabited by its early owner Phoebe Elliott and her young family. The cottage has since been passed between generations of local owners for over 145 years before being lovingly restored and updated as a country home, rich in period style and modern comforts, with the namesake of Phoebe herself.


The interiors of Phoebe’s Cottage have been lovingly styled by Belle Hemming from Belle Bright Project, using many of the original cottage features and a mix of carefully curated vintage and quality contemporary finishes. The result is a breathtakingly moody and subtle interior with warm, cosy and inviting spaces. Comfort with style is at the forefront of any stay at Phoebe’s, with an ambient wood heater, air conditioning and a cast iron claw-foot bath, not to mention modern creature comforts, such as wifi, a coffee machine, well-appointed kitchen and super comfortable beds all provided for guests’ use.


Outdoors, Phoebe’s Cottage offers a lush outdoor country-cottage style garden, that lends itself to the unique climate of Lyonville, featuring soaring established trees and views to nearby Mount Babbington and the Wombat Forest. In summer, guests can spend lazy afternoons reclining on the lawns in the sun drenched gardens or the shade of the established walnut trees, with lawn games or late afternoon drinks.


Phoebe’s Cottage is an ideal year-round escape from day-to-day life, the ideal base to explore the the attractions of the Daylesford, Trentham, Kyneton, Macedon and Castlemaine regions. Step into the stunning seasons experienced in Lyonville and live slow and purposeful.
