Leave your screens in your bag, you’re not going to need them here. This once derelict dairy on Dja Dja Wurrung Country has been lovingly transformed into a humble, cosy place of solitude. A space to leave the tech, crowds and congestion in your rearview mirror. At face value it’s a 1860s stone building with thick rendered internal walls, surrounded by native gardens, but The Dairy at Yandoit Creek Farm is supremely private and has a warmth that’s hard to put into words – you feel as though you are the only one who has ever been there. Designed specifically for kid-free escapes, you can enjoy the absolute quiet, freshly baked bread, and clawfoot bath. Light the fire, make a cup of your favourite brew, and run your hands over the timber poles of the four-poster bed, which were sourced from the property. The sustainable ethos extends to your food waste, which will be fed to the chickens once you leave. Should you wish to venture further than the fields outside, where Lola the dairy cow might amble by, Daylesford and Castlemaine are both around 20 minutes away.
