Set in on a 1000 acre traditional farm property, the Homestead at Lochinver Farm is a Scottish inspired 1860s bluestone colonial residence and is complemented by two original cottages. Ideal for couples, families and group stays, the three residences, all self-contained, are great places for celebrations, a weekend away or mid-week break and for longer holidays. Lochinver Farm just outside Carisbrook is just two hours from Melbourne and near to intriguing villages of Clunes, Talbot, Newstead, and Maldon, it is a great base to enjoy the delights of the larger towns of Daylesford, Castlemaine, Maryborough and Avoca. Guests may self-cater, order in-house catering or dine out locally. As well as the wide open spaces that a beautiful rural farm property offers, enjoy a touch of indulgence with the 10 person hydrotherapy pool in the Spa Pavilion. Pets are welcomed at Lochinver Farm by prior arrangement. The Homestead, with its grand dining room and large country kitchen has six bedrooms and three bathrooms and will accommodate six couples or twelve singles & up to fifteen in a family group. Blue Wren Cottage, three bedrooms, accommodates 5 singles or 2 doubles & 1 twin share, great for two couples travelling together or for a family with a pet. Creek Cottage in the Homestead garden is ideal for a couple or two singles. The residences can be booked separately or all together for a large group. Relax in the rambling gardens and take long walks along the river banks and see if you can spot a platypus. Finally spend a few days to enjoy the nearby villages and towns of, rich in history and visit the markets, wineries and art galleries of the Victorian Goldfields Region.

- Review: lochinver-farm
- We have spent a lot of time unsuccessfully searching for holiday accommodation with genuine wheelchair access. Then we discovered Lochinver. The location is ideal; well off the road...peace, quiet and privacy.... and handy to Carisbrook and Maryborough. The Creek Cottage is beautifully set up with large bedroom/living room and bathroom areas providing perfect access for both wheelchair and hoist. Add to this the wonderful view out of the window, the delightful garden, the chance to wander along the creek and wonder at the huge redgums and the warmly caring and friendly hosts and you just about have it all. We felt it a privilege to be able to stay in the adjacent, glorious homestead. The bedrooms, huge sitting/dining/billiards rooms and the country kitchen straight out of your dreams were all so welcoming that we didn't want to leave. This is the perfect spot for that getaway with a family or group of friends. Our parents lapped up the atmosphere and voted it the best place that they have ever stayed in. Len - April 2014
