Tom’s Cottage invites you to imagine a flamboyant boot-maker, who liked to attend local dances and enjoy the finer things of life. Now his former cottage is available to guests that seek the same. With a mix of new and antique furnishings, art, quality bed linen and a collection of vintage objects you will be transported to another time and place. Choose between luxuriating in the king bed upstairs or perhaps enjoying a downstairs living space with garden views and a wood fire. A fully equipped kitchen if you decide to stay in or why not follow Tom’s lead and strut down Piper Street to one of Kyneton’s renowned eateries?

Dating to the Victorian gold rush of the 1850s, Tom’s Cottage has been lovingly reinvented using hempcrete and traditional lime plaster to create unique and characterful lodgings. Venetian plastered walls complement vintage furniture and artworks, and natural linens sit alongside recycled tartan and tweed textiles in a beautiful blend of heritage and modern finishes.

Nestled amongst some of Victoria’s finest Classical Victorian architecture, Tom’s Cottage c.1854 is one of Piper Street’s earliest buildings. The cottage has been home to a baker, a cooper and a member of Victoria’s first parliament, and more recently, to a much loved local boot repairer, Tom Hickey. Tom’s boot repairs and men’s shoe store on High Street, Kyneton was, from the 1930s to the 1980s, a cherished spot for locals to catch up on the latest gossip. Discovered beneath the floors during cottage renovations were many of Tom’s unwanted tools of the trade. Today, guests will discover these little treasures of the past throughout the cottage.
