We chose Abergeldie for its convenient location to many interesting areas north of Ballarat. The booking process was very straight forward; we made our reservation via the phone. Our hosts Jenny & Geoff have a beautiful home in Smeaton on their working farm. The room amenities are very comfortable and Jenny provides a very substantial, traditional hosted B&B breakfast. No found breakfast provisions in a refrigerator here! The fridge and its little north facing sun room contained a welcoming afternoon treat on our arrival. This was just down to earth country hospitality. The home is a snapshot in time with some beautiful furnishings and decorations. However, our bathroom was as modern as tomorrow. Jenny & Geoff have long established family roots in Smeaton which leaves you in no doubt that you are in a living museum with two charming hosts as the curators. Nothing is too much trouble for these two. Geoff took us to the local church where we found a record of a possible ancestor. Geoff is a farmer of the old school who is emotionally tied to the farm and his beautiful black Angus cattle. Oh how we loved this place!

We loved our stay here. It's incredibly cosy and peaceful with a Jindara wood fireplace in the cottage that kept everything beautifully warm. Jenny is a lovely host and makes delicious cooked breakfasts, with afternoon tea on arrival. There's a comfortable, large bed and a good bathroom in the cottage. Jenny even stoked the fire for us, so the cottage was cosy when we returned from dinner. Highly recommend.

My partner and I stayed in the cottage room at Abergeldie B&B for 2 nights, over a long weekend. We were looking for somewhere with serious peace and quiet for a restful break, and this is definitely the place. Abergeldie is a working farm and no passing traffic, streetlights or noise disturb the evenings here. Jenny was a great host, considerate without being intrusive. She prepared generous and delicious breakfasts. Stewed rhubarb from their garden was a highlight! We loved the cottage. It's a simple and authentic place, one large main room (bedroom/lounge) with kitchen facilities, plus bathroom. It has a wood combustion stove which kept us thoroughly warm even in the middle of winter, as well as creating a cosy atmosphere. On our second day there, Jenny even stoked and lit the stove while we were out, so that the room was warm when we returned in late afternoon. Smeaton is only 600m up the road (walking distance!), but is just a small village with one pub and not much else for visitors. Anderson's Mill, a couple of km south of Smeaton, is worth a visit if you are enthused by history and engineering, with the huge waterwheel still in place. From Smeaton, it is an easy 20min drive to either Clunes or Daylesford/Hepburn Springs, for more things to do and see. In summary, we definitely recommend Abergeldie and will be back.

Great place to stay, terrific local pub nearby who serve local Tuki lamb, close to Castlemaine and Daylesford for a bit of an adventure. Anderson's Mill hidden away is well worth spending half an hour or so walking around.

We stayed with another couple in the homestead and couldn't have been happier; friendly hosts Jenny and Geoff, magnificent breakfasts and lovely comfortable beds all contributing to our contentment. But, on a freezing cold weekend, after exploring various towns and wineries in the district (recommend Ellender for their rose wine and exquisite pizzas), we could hardly wait to get back 'home' to the magnificent open fire to spend the evenings. This is a lovely place, highly recommended.
