Overview

Photos and Description of this Dean holiday house

From the moment you breathe the fresh country air you will begin to relax and unwind. Black Cat Cottage and Trufferie is on 20 peaceful acres, 6 minutes from Creswick. Come, stay and share in the picturesque views of Creswick forest and our 1000 tree trufferie.

Black Cat Cottage is an early 1900s weatherboard and mudbrick cottage that has been extensively renovated with modern conveniences for a relaxing stay.

 

Bedrooms contain a queen size and 2 x single beds, quality linen and electric blankets, Black Cat Cottage provides fully self contained farm stay accommodation sleeping up to 4 people. The cottage features a cosy wood fire and large country kitchen with french doors leading out to the gardens and petanque area.

 

Stroll around the gardens, nibble on fruit and veggies in our French style vegetable garden or visit the chooks. Our two farm dogs Ella and Harry would love to walk and play with you.

In summer there is a 10 metre heated salt water pool for you to relax by, or enjoy a game of petanque with a glass of wine under the 100 year old Cypress trees.

In winter joins us for a truffle hunt while we explain the mysteries of this intoxicating french delicacy, or curl up by the wood fire with a good book or enjoy a range of DVD’s and games.

The owners are on-site but out-of-sight while they attend to the daily running of the farm and trufferie.
