“Acre of Roses’ Miners Cottage is luxury boutique accommodation nestled in an enchanting garden which offers sensory experiences designed to help you escape from everyday stresses. Here you can relax and rejuvenate; indulge; play or discover all that Trentham and surrounds offers. Acre of Roses is a working bio-dynamic micro-farm of heritage roses field-grown with minimal intervention and the help of our own bees, compost, sunshine and rain.”
Nestled away in Trentham, a small, charming town just an hour from Melbourne is where you will find Acre of Roses. I first came across the property on Instagram and was initially really intrigued by the name. After scrolling through their photos, I instantly fell in love and couldn’t book a weekend away soon enough.
I returned to stay at Acre of Roses a second time because it was so special. It is the perfect country escape away from the stresses of city life. Sandy McKinley and Rob Roy, the owners of the property, have made sure that the second you enter the house, it already feels like a home. There are treats from the local bakery, naturally grown produce from the garden, croissants ready to be put in the oven and sweet notes dotted throughout every room.
There are currently two bedrooms (and a third coming soon), with Cultiver linen, woollen Bemboka blankets, feather down Duvets and a pillow menu. My favourite parts of the cottage are the rainwater filled cedar hot tub and theatre room, perfect for entertaining or just chilling out.
