House is filled with old hospital artefacts (from old operating theatre lights, trolleys etc). Expensive for what you get. The toilet is not seperate from the bathroom which is sometimes difficult with four people sharing. The garden unit is more like a garage with no curtains....and the toilet, shower and bedroom are all in one room. The open fire was... More

It is well equipped, with 2 large bedrooms, a very large living, dinning and kitchen with gas heating and open fire, and a library. Oozes character. We enjoyed... More

This place is so charming that it is a little world unto itself, a place to disappear from everyday life. It is also in a good location for exploring the region. It's on a reasonably busy road but you can't hear the cars from the main living area, which was so comfy and gorgeous that we never wanted to leave.... More

We stayed at the White House for 2 days during the week and we could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable getaway.

As soon as we opened the door and stepped inside this house- we knew we had found a beautiful place to spend a weekend in Daylesford.
