Daylesford was our season getaway for many years. In January 2005 we came up from Essendon for a weekend away. We found ourselves checking out Stockdale & Legos real estate window & Astley B&B Cottage came out at us. After viewing Astley that afternoon Kev & I were really excited about the property and literally decided & signed up quite soon after both my brothers came & gave their advice.
In May 2005 after the settlement, we + my son Tom, moved and took over this small business venture. Now we are in our 11th year. It started quite slow with a booking here and there. Several improvements to the Cottage its now progressed with bookings each weekend & some midweek. Kev is a Trade Chef & I work as an Aged/Disability Carer nearby. This was a change of career for me as I spent over 25 years as an Administative Assistant. Initially unsure if we had made the right decision, Daylesford is now home as its a great place to live. These days we are glad to say we are welcoming many return & new guests every week. We have many visitor books full of complimentary remarks. Up until 2013 we haven’t had a website, but with the wonderful assistance of Andrea from Pribaz Design its assisted the business marketing to which we are very grateful.
We hope to have the pleasure of having you stay soon.
