With the Wombat Forest as a backdrop you couldn’t ask for a more pleasing location than that which surrounds Bellinzona, the historical boutique hotel in Hepburn Springs. Situated in the heart of the village near Daylesford, Bellinzona Resort is an elegant building nestled in a manicured garden that surrounds the venue. Now that summer is here, the resort is an oasis away from the ‘busy-ness’ of Daylesford that beckons seekers of an easier pace to slip into a more relaxed frame of mind.
To help visitors find that easy ambience, Tastings is the new wine hub and cellar door open Fridays and weekends. Extending out into the gardens, which boast a wood fired pizza oven producing a selection of gourmet pizzas on weekends, relaxation is beckoning. With seating on the deck that spans the restaurant Tastings is the place to be for a showcase of local wines, liquor and tasting platters. The Heritage Restaurant is the perfect escape for Wednesday to Thursday dinner or a high tea or Devonshire tea on a Saturday afternoon. The Resort has a range of accommodation, from luxurious spa suites to self-contained country cottages. Facilities include an indoor heated swimming pool, spa, sauna and games room. When looking for a function or conference venue, Bellinzona stands out and is a great base to explore the region or just meander around the lovely Hepburn Springs.
