Background




With views over Wombat State Forest and nestled in a quiet cul de sac just a minutes’ walk from the heart of Hepburn Springs lies a sweet house which has fondly been named “Uno” by the owners. Uno was originally built in 1957 and has been extensively renovated to cater to people who want to spend a couple of days away with those who share their passion. Developed exclusively for craft enthusiasts, the house now boasts 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 4 toilets, a state of the art kitchen and 2 enormous living and work areas. Ducted heating and evaporative cooling have been added for year round comfort.
Uno has been developed to satisfy your creative needs and includes a light filled studio that comfortably seats 9 people with lots of table and bench space, a 5 meter design wall, a fully equipped cutting table, light box, day lamps, white board, ironing area and many other accessories. And for those times when you want to sit back and relax, there are comfortable nooks, both inside and out.

With the realisation that life can’t be all work, large communal areas have been created where you can sit and have a laugh over a cuppa or a glass of wine and if the relaxation bug bites you, you can even have a spa – we can also arrange for a masseuse to visit!
…and at the end of a long and happy day you are rest assured on king single or double beds fitted with therapeutic mattresses and high thread count sheets. If you wish to know more about this fabulous craft retreat, either read on or give Sally and Brian a call on 0403 240 603.
