York House | 7 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms | A Spacious Miner's Cottage Reimagined for Modern Living

Discover this historic miner's cottage with an exquisite contemporary interior, nestled amidst nearly a full acre of lush gardens, just a brief two-minute stroll from the heart of Daylesford. Originally built in 1858, York House accommodates up to 14 guests, making it the perfect choice for group getaways and corporate retreats.

Inside, York House blends style with a rustic ambiance. The front living area showcases plush, dark leather sofas that beautifully contrast with the light, unadorned walls. This well-appointed common space, carpeted and elegantly furnished, is ideal for relaxation and television viewing.

The primary living room seamlessly shares an open-plan layout with the dining area and kitchen. Abundant natural light streams in through the numerous windows and glass doors, making this space the heart of York House. The country kitchen is equipped with modern conveniences, including a refrigerator, dishwasher, and a spacious island with ample storage. Dark wood cabinets and light countertops create a sleek, functional kitchen space. After a communal meal, unwind on the comfortable, dark gray couches or take advantage of the property's outdoor offerings.

York House boasts seven inviting bedrooms. Each features comfortable beds, an infusion of natural light, and an eclectic mix of modern and antique decor that embodies York House's unique style. The five bathrooms within the residence maintain the same level of design and functionality. Guests can also enjoy complimentary toiletries, quality linens, ducted heating, air conditioning, and complimentary WiFi to enhance their stay.

Outside, the property is enveloped by gardens, offering a charming outdoor setting with multiple tables and a BBQ. Whether you're savoring a peaceful breakfast, engaging in daytime recreation, dining alfresco, or unwinding in the evening, the verdant expanse of York House's private garden is the centerpiece of your experience. From hanging vines to vibrant flowers nestled among the foliage, this mature garden is a visual delight.

With its proximity to the heart of Daylesford, guests have easy access to a plethora of restaurants, shops, wellness centers, and cafés in the vicinity. If you seek respite from the hustle and bustle, you'll find the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens and the Convent Gallery nearby, providing an opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural beauty, wildlife, and artistry of country Victoria.

York House seamlessly merges its historical roots as a miner's cottage with all the modern amenities of a contemporary home, making it an exceptional way to experience and savor Daylesford, whether for a holiday or a corporate event.

We wholeheartedly recommend The Virgin Kitchen Restaurant as the premier dining option in Daylesford. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it boasts a magnificent menu and an extensive wine selection.

Great stay


The third time a group of 12 friends have stayed at York house. Another bedroom and two bathrooms have been added since last year. We appreciate that the king beds are split to single beds to accommodate us all. The house is always clean and very accessible to the delights of Daylesford. Thank you

We enjoyed our stay


Well-furnished kitchen/ dining and shared spaces so 12 people easily cooked and lolled about. Thank you

Eight girlfriends who love to chat.


Eight girlfriends who love to chat, discuss books and share a glass of wine. We've been doing this for 10 years but never beyond our local hood. This was a special weekend to celebrate the anniversary, good friendship, explore Daylesford and immerse ourselves at the Clunes Book Festival. York House was our choice and it was the perfect choice for us. Incredibly well located and spacious. Plenty of rooms, incredibly well-equipped kitchen and lounge area.

Future guests can expect a clean.


Future guests can expect a clean, neat property with great cooking facilities, plenty of crockery & eating utensils, large bedrooms, great bathrooms, spacious living areas and a lovely garden. The little touches of a welcoming vase of flowers from the garden and a welcome box of local goodies gave us a warm welcome to our accommodation. The convenience of the location within walking distance from the shops and various cafes, pubs and restaurants was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed the property and are sure that future guests would do the same.

Amazing spot walking distance to all Daylesford has to offer.

This is a great place for a big family or group to stay for a weekend.


This is a great place for a big family or group to stay for a weekend. Location is so close to the city centre that it is no more then a 5 minute walk. The house is fully equipped will all you would expect including for the kitchen, bathroom and living room.

Brilliant location close to wombat hill gardens as well as coffee shops and restaurants.


Brilliant location close to wombat hill gardens as well as coffee shops and restaurants. The house is spacious, comfortable, cosy and warm. All the bedrooms are beautifully clean and feel luxurious and he kitchen is magnificently equipped for large groups. We cooked for 12 very easily. Vincent is an awesome host, responsive to any and all requests. We were a little surprised that the real cost was a lot more than the advertised price but we would go again as the house is brilliant for large numbers. A surprising combination of cosy, comfort and privacy for all.

The house was big and clean and well suited to our big family.


The house was big and clean and well suited to our big family. So close to everything, A 2 minute walk to all shops and restaurants. I would recommend staying here and we will again. Everything you need is at the house.
