Folly Farm Rural Retreat offers simple pleasures and casual elegance! A private and quiet country cottage for two, situated on ten acres of gardens and blueberry farm. Quiet and private with no passing traffic. Enter through dry stone gateway which opens onto ten acres in the heart of Olinda.
Little Folly is a retreat exclusively for two. The open plan cottage provides all the luxuries of today with the ambience of a Hill Station property. Setting the mood is a beautiful wrought iron chandelier, handmade by a local blacksmith and a romantic four poster bed, hand turned by local craftsman.
The cottage has a second accessible bathroom offering a step-less shower, anti-slip flooring, hand-held shower, grab rails, wheel chair accessible toilet and more. Access via ramp. Parts of garden maybe accessed in good weather.
The English Shepherds Hut is a special place to enjoy the garden, in all weather. Curl up on the daybed, turn on the fire and watch the garden grow. Read a book, write a poem and pen a postcard. The shepherds hut is a cosy escape in winter or a delightful summerhouse in summer.
The light and sunny cottage offers delightful views of Edna Walling gardens and Mount Dandenong. A short stroll brings you to Olinda and Mount Dandenong Villages, National Rhododendron Gardens and a golf club. For Gardens lovers, CloudeHill and Gentiana Nurseries are very close.
Folly Farm Rural Retreat has a garden full of history! The National Trust classified gardens were designed by Edna Walling in 1936. Ellis Stones and Eric Hammond's special rock work creates a very special magic. Here you will find Walling's signature trees including silver birches.
