The Farmhouse

Revel in a genuinely rural and regaled experience at The Farm House.

Located halfway between Kyneton and Daylesford, and surrounded by some of Victoria’s finest wineries, quaintest farmers markets, richest dining experiences and most awe-inspiring views, The Farm House is a labour of love for internationally lauded landscape designer, Paul Bangay.

Nestled off the well-worn tourist track The Farm House is set 100 metres from the Main House and garden of Stonefields, Paul’s country residence and is surrounded by two large paddocks within which Paul’s herd of rare breed British White cattle roam freely.

The Farm House boasts four bedrooms, two with an ensuite, a large sitting room complete with wood fire heater, open-plan kitchen and generous – yet inviting – dining room.

Dear Paul,

We are writing to thank you again for a wonderful stay this weekend.

The house was just beautiful. It was so clean, comfortable, well appointed and so so relaxing. We honestly can’t think of anything you have forgotten, or could have done better.

Being city folk we really enjoyed the openness of the view, and the sight of the pretty flowers from every room. We also enjoyed watching the cattle who are most entertaining in a “watch very closely” for action kind of way.

Your own garden is such a delight. We felt we knew what to expect (having lived with your book for some months now) but were just enthralled by the beauty of the garden. There were surprises at every turn and I found myself with a big smile on my face as I walked around. What a talent to bring such joy to people.

Thank you again for the honour of being the first paying guests. From two very satisfied customers,

Warm regards Sam and Jan North

The Garden at Stonefields

‘A truly great garden should enrich your soul, and those of many others – hopefully for generations to come.’

This is celebrated landscape designer Paul Bangay’s inspirational story of creating Stonefields, one of Australia’s most beautiful country gardens. The Garden at Stonefields reveals the triumphs and trials of designing and building this extraordinary house and garden – Paul’s most challenging and personal project yet. Photographed by Paul’s long-time collaborator Simon Griffiths, the stunning photos reveal the evolution of the site from conception to completion, and capture the unique beauty of each area of the garden. The book also features extracts from Paul’s personal diary, an intimate and compelling account of dealing with drought, bushfires and the threat of mining in contemporary rural Australia.
