The Mitchelton Hotel by M Gallery

After a little hour and a half drive from Melbourne Airport, we arrive at The Mitchelton Hotel and Winery. Set in picturesque countryside Victoria we are welcomed into a cosy Scandi style lobby on arrival with a glass of Mitchelton wine… After a few hours of travel this is just perfect and puts us both into an instant stay-cation mood. Whilst I love a big city, I also love a country getaway. Many of my childhood holidays were spent in the country and there is something about just switching off surrounded by trees that makes me incredibly happy…

We settle into our room which is chic and modern in perfect contrast to the setting. I spy the most gorgeous pool set amongst the trees from my balcony and decide this is where my afternoon will be spent!

After a little relax by the pool we head over to The Muse restaurant for an early dinner. I am so looking forward to an alfresco dinner in the countryside… Incredibly delicious pork croquettes, baked rainbow trout and dark chocolate mousse later we are in love with this place. With such a wonderful ‘paddock to plate’ ethos, we are just loving that everything here is locally sourced and paired with wines from the local vineyard.

The next morning a wild storm comes in so it’s the perfect time to pop into the onsite art gallery of Aboriginal artworks. As an artist I am really adoring these pieces! I love that most use the traditional style of Aboriginal painting but in non traditional colours. I can sit and enjoy this space for a little while. Realising it’s now time for a Swedish massage at The Mitchelton day spa, I pop over to the relaxing spa for a herbal tea pre treatment. There is nothing better than hearing a wild storm crashing around outside while inside getting a cosy massage! Refreshed and revived we take an afternoon stroll around the vineyard itself before another early dinner and the best sleep. We have our last breakfast on our little balcony before departing back to the airport. I am ready to get back to the office after two perfect days in the country…
