ABOUT US

Daylesford Longhouse is a place of residence, working farm and cooking school – all in one. While most houses provide a sense of retreat from the outside world, Daylesford Longhouse brings the outside in, allowing guests to enjoy both the farm life and the comfort of a home.

Drawing inspiration from River Cottage and the ’70s series ‘The Good Life’, Daylesford Longhouse is the culmination of owners Trace and Ronnen’s passion for food & cooking, animal husbandry, gardening and self-sufficiency.

Daylesford Longhouse is composed of living quarters, a garden kitchen and a working farm building – all within one, long shed structure. The house is not your usual weekender – it has been designed for living, working, storing and making. It is intentionally active and demands constant care and attention from owners Trace & Ronnen, be it milking a cow, making cheese or pruning a tree. It is a place that takes you back to the fundamentals of living.
