IF you’re hanging out to go on a romantic British getaway with your beloved, but still haven’t managed to save up the coin, don’t fret, we have a solution (and it's less than an hour from Ballarat!)
Situated a pleasant 30-minute drive from Ballarat, Keebles Country House in Clunes offers guests the chance to experience a traditional bed and breakfast escape amongst some stunning surroundings.
Owned by Peter and Shelley Chandler, the property provides the romance of a grand country house combined with second-to-none hospitality. Can’t ask for much more, really.
Each room features its own identity with quaint decor, an en-suite and personal touches to sweeten one’s stay. You won’t even want to leave the house grounds, with a library, billiard room, three sitting rooms and two dining areas inviting you to live the life of a recluse.
The house itself, just like the township of Clunes, is rich in history. Having started as The Telegraph Hotel in the 1860s, the building went on to operate as a girls’ boarding house, bus terminal, and gas works station.
Taking pride of place amongst the goldfields architecture that defines Clunes, Keebles is surrounded by two acres of idyllic gardens that serve to make your stay all the more magical.
So go on, get packing, and prepare yourself for an intimate and luxurious getaway in a grand country house doused with history and delight.
