Tucked between the bush and the sea on the Mornington Peninsula, Hart’s Farm is a private adults-only escape on a 10-hectare family-run farm. Book the studio on its own or combined with the retreat to take advantage of the professional kitchen that has played host to cooking classes and private feasts. Drop into the farm gate for a naturally fermented cider and olive oil tasting – both grown and created mere steps from your door – and cook up something delicious to enjoy at the recycled timber dining table. Fed by rainwater and run off-grid the majority of time thanks to solar and a waste management system, this sustainable farm stay is as luxurious as it is peaceful. Dive into the extensive collection of magazines and books as the fire roars. Outside, kangaroos and parrots add to the bucolic scene, where olive trees and vines tumble down the hillside. Wake to a fresh bounty of local produce – think homemade muesli, local bread, and perhaps some raspberries or figs plucked from the farm itself.
