November, the month to start planning your CHRISTMAS GETAWAY November 2022
We have 2 fantastic locations, Shillings & Pence Cottage in beautiful Bullarto or our 3 cottages in Daylesford. Imagine waking to bird song, crisp clean air and complete privacy. Private forest walking tracks, picnic spots in the forest, and an afternoon aperitif in the Pavilion overlooking the water.
Spring has sprung as they say, but it’s still feeling like winter. Bulbs around the area are flowering, and the creeks are overflowing. The waterfalls at Sailors & Trentham Falls are magnificent, and both places are definitely worth the visit or picnic.
I know it’s early but Christmas is just around the corner, less than 80 days (about 10 weeks) so it’s time to start planning your Christmas stay.
A spring has been put back into our step. Spring brings a new lease of life on almost everything, bulbs are flowering, fruit is forming, and leaves are bursting into shape. Days are brighter and longer, the sky is clear and life on the land is looking up after the closing of winter.
We are finally settling into winter, cool crisp mornings with a cover of frost on the ground. Fires burning all night, we have hydronic heating so after Easter the fires are lit, and they will continue to roar until end October. After that we clean and freshen up the fireplaces & cooktops ready for next winter.
Wood, wood & more firewood. Having split, stacked and chopped our winter supply during spring & summer we are finally feeling the warmth of our labour. It’s a tough gig living in Bullarto at this time of the year but it also brings so many more pleasures.
Winter in Bullarto can be magical. At 800mt above sea level, overnight temperatures are below average, and can be very windy. This creates a beautiful background for an intimate stay, with cool, crisp days, and morning and evening mists.
Autumn is traditionally the season of plenty, and Bullarto is no exception. The leaves are bathed in vibrant colours, rich earthy scents fill the air, and there are plenty of plump, sun-ripened produce in the garden.
