Indulge in superb country hospitality in an idyllic retreat set in arguably one of the districts finest English gardens. Secondo is a new architect designed single storey two bedroom luxury house nestling in half an acre of meticulously maintained gardens with silver birches and box hedging lining the driveway.

The house features a state of the art kitchen with AEG oven, Miele induction cooktop plus full size fridge and freezer and dishwasher and microwave.

The open plan kitchen/dining area leads to the lounge area which includes Foxtel, lots of books and magazines, a wood fire, split system and wall heaters. This room opens to a covered patio and cutting garden. The main bedroom which over looks the garden has a queen size bed with luxurious 1000 thread count cotton sheets, doona and side tables with lamps. The second bedroom comprises a queen size bed which is easily divided into two single beds if so required. Each bedroom has a built in wall of wardrobes.

The luxurious bathroom includes double hand basins on a long bench top in front of a wall of mirrors. This bathroom includes a Maytag clothes washing machine and dryer.

Every glass door and window in Secondo is double glazed affording maximum retention of the house temperature and sound proofing.

Guests are encouraged to walk around the gardens and sit out or have drinks/meals in the grounds. Catering arrangements at Secondo are you provide your own meals, utilising the kitchen cutlery and crockery etc or visit one of the coffee shops, hotels, restaurants, IGA supermarket or explore the surrounding hot spot locations of Daylesford, Kyneton or Woodend. Secondo is a three minute walk to the High Street of Trentham with all of its attractions.

Although we love dogs and we currently have a dog, we do not have the resources to cater for other dogs.

Trentham is a very special township at the very top of the Great Dividing Range midway between Woodend and Daylesford, approx. 1 hour from Melbourne, the town's location in-between the Macedon Ranges and the Spa Country at the edge of the Wombat State Forest makes it the perfect base to explore the many attractions of these areas.

Whether you are looking for a romantic weekend in the country, indulging in the many gourmet delights and wines offered by the region or more active outdoor pursuits like riding or bush walking in the Wombat State Forest, Trentham has it all.

In winter it's often dusted by snow, while in summer it stays lush and green long after neighbouring regions dry out. Tiny Trentham punches well above its weight in the high quality eating and drinking stakes even in such a gourmet obsessed region, book into Annie Smither's 'Du Fermier' restaurant or dine at Wild Thyme, Food Store, the Plough or the Cosmopolitan Hotel. Pack a picnic lunch and walk to the Quarry Street Reserve and lake in the centre of town. Call in at Redbird bakery or Chaplins or the Collective for breaky. If you feel energetic, Trentham Golf Club welcomes visitors or do the Domino Trail walk.

Garden lovers may wish to visit The Garden of St.Erth or Frogmore at nearby Blackwood or visit the many gardens at Mt. Macedon.

Finally, our guests may choose to just relax and not do a lot, reading your current book and getting to the last page sounds attractive; having a glass or two beside the wood fire on Saturday afternoon sounds compelling, whilst working out which restaurant you will walk to for dinner tonight sounds fabulous

"Lovely stay in Trentham" We sent my parents to Trentham for a night away. They loved their stay at Secondo.



"Immaculately clean and comfortable." Jan and Eldin are amazing hosts. They are friendly, hospitable and helpful. Secondo is welcoming, cosy and a home away from home. Truly self contained, every amenity thought of. Lovely bathroom and shower. Beautiful linen on beds. Thanks Eldin for setting and lighting the fire for us so we arrived home to a warm haven. Thank you.



Very comfortable little place, perfect for our girls night away. Nearby to the Main Street. Had a wonderful time. Thanks for having us!



Thank you so much Jan, Secondo was perfect for our weekend away. The cottage was lovely and comfortable and the garden was a hidden surprise. And the bread and jam kept us going! We only wish we were there longer. Thanks again.



Owners/hosts Jan + Eldin Dixon are delightful, who take great pride in the presentation of the property. This is reflected in the surrounding gardens and the interior fit out which made our stay very pleasant. The cottage is very clean with an array of body lotions, shampoos and conditioners to choose from. Also included was lovely bread with a range of jams to enjoy for breakfast. We highly recommend this as a great place to stay and discover Trentham. Hendrikus + Steven.
