Gumtree Spring is a large mud brick house, located just 3 minutes drive from Daylesford on the Daylesford Trentham Road, and tucked away on 5 acres of forest. This unique property is a fantastic option for larger groups (up to 18), family and friends who want to get together under the same roof and enjoy the hub of communal living for just a few days. Five bedrooms comprise 1 queen room, 3 identical rooms with a set of bunks and a double bed and a bunkroom with 2 sets of bunks. If each person wants their own bed, Gumtree sleeps 14. 3 bathrooms dotted amongst the bedrooms offer 1 claw foot bath, 2 showers and 2 toilets.
The living area is large, spacious and combines lounge, dining and kitchen (fully self-contained with everything you will need for group meals including 2 fridges). The dining table can seat everybody; and there’s a games room at the other end of the house with table tennis or pool table, table soccer and TV. With a 7 star energy rating (hydronic heating throughout the house), a wood fire – visual from both the dining room and the living room – and the option of lighting the wood stove next to the oven, you will enjoy continual warmth. The mud brick keeps things cool in summer. The outdoor BBQ and seating will give you another great option to get together.
