Affording stunning views of the Wombat State Forest, Tasma House rests in the 1.5 acre landscaped gardens of the historic Tasma House and Gardens. The grounds - recognised as significant by Australia's Open Gardens Scheme "feature majestic trees, towering hedges, wisteria arbors, banks of lavender, espaliered fruit trees, and ornamental ponds." There's even an in-ground olympic sized trampoline! Hirers are provided exclusive use of property

The famous Daylesford Mill Market is just a short walk away, and the bustling foodie heart of the town is only a brisk walk along the road.

Despite its proximity to Daylesford attractions, however, Tasma House feels quiet and secluded. The main house provides accommodation featuring four double bedrooms , two separate lounges, both with large flat screen LCD TV's with DVD players, two bathrooms with bathshower over, a music room with a grand piano, and a large kitchen and dining area , suitable for running workshops or group activities . Hydronic heating operates in the main house. …

There is a commercial espresso machine in the kitchen and free wireless internet access, and laundry access.

Three separate garden bungalow rooms allow you to add sleeping for up to 8 more guests. There are six single beds and one double bed in the garden rooms, about 5 metres from the main house and surrounded by terraces, courtyards and the tea garden.

The "Potager" self contained cottage is part of this private "village" having it's own fully equiped kitchen, bathroom, LCDTVDVD, double bed, and two singles. Perfect for the host of a group, or for mum and dad, or that early riser, late sleeper, that needs their own spot but wants to be part of the group.


Many past guests have chosen to utilise the Gardens for their Wedding Ceremony. The Wisteria Arbour acts as an informal "aisle" with plenty of shade trees, and garden "rooms" and vista's providing for great photographic opportunities. Ceremonies involving acoustic musicians are permitted during daylight hours.
Ceremonies involving up to 30 offsite visitors 50 including those guests staying on the property cost an extra $300. Higher guest numbers are by by further negotiation.
