Rates from $240**Subject to availability & conditions apply
Folly Farm Rural Retreat is a private and quiet country cottage for two, situated on ten acres of gardens and blueberry farm. Quiet and private with no passing traffic, enter through dry stone gateway which opens onto ten acres in the heart of Olinda.
Exclusively for two, the open plan cottage provides all the luxuries of today with the ambience of a historic Hill Station property. Setting the mood is a beautiful wrought iron chandelier, handmade by a local blacksmith and a romantic four poster bed and the kitchen is stocked with breakfast provisions.
The cottage has a second accessible bathroom offering a step-less shower, anti-slip flooring, hand-held shower, grab rails, wheel chair accessible toilet and more. Access via ramp; parts of garden may be accessed by wheelchair in good weather.
Outside, say hello to the beautiful alpaca pets Flame, Gizmo and Heidi.
The English Shepherds Hut is a special place to enjoy the garden, in all weather. Curl up on the daybed, turn on the fire and watch the garden grow. The shepherds hut is a cosy escape in winter or a delightful summerhouse in summer.
The light and sunny cottage offers delightful views of Edna Walling gardens and Mount Dandenong. A short stroll brings you to Olinda and Mount Dandenong Villages, National Rhododendron Gardens and a golf club. For Gardens lovers, CloudeHill and Gentiana Nurseries are very close.
Folly Farm Rural Retreat has a garden full of history! The National Trust classified gardens were designed by Edna Walling in 1936. Ellis Stones and Eric Hammond's special rock work creates a very special magic. Here you will find Walling's signature trees including silver birches.
Folly Farm welcomes your dog. Olinda is very dog friendly with many cafes providing outside service. Wonderful walks for you and your beautiful dog.
