Nestled between the enchanting Dandenong Ranges and the lush Yarra Valley, The Meadows Tiny House is more than just a place to stay, it’s an experience, a retreat, a moment in time to be truly treasured.
As a blogger who’s passionate about uncovering hidden gems and sharing unique travel experiences, I’m thrilled to walk you through what makes The Meadows Tiny House in Macclesfield, VIC, a must-visit destination.
Location and Surroundings
Just an hour’s drive east of Melbourne’s bustling CBD, The Meadows Tiny House offers a serene escape in the quaint township of Macclesfield. Its prime location means you’re just 10 minutes away from the vibrant Emerald Township and within a comfortable drive to charming towns like Olinda, Sassafras, and Yarra Glen.
Imagine waking up to the gentle sounds of nature, surrounded by rolling hills and natural bushland. The landscape here is dotted with beautiful horses and you’re likely to spot an abundance of wildlife. This isn’t just a stay, it’s an immersion into the heart of Victoria’s natural beauty.
The Tiny House Experience
The Meadows Tiny House is a marvel of efficiency and comfort. Despite its compact size, it doesn’t compromise on amenities. You’ll find a well-equipped kitchenette, handy cooking equipment, and excellent bathroom facilities.
However, it’s the commitment to ecological sustainability that sets it apart. The house features a cassette toilet with a removable waste-holding tank, a hand basin, and a gas-heated shower for those blissful hot showers under the stars.
The Farm and Its Offerings
This 20-acre farm isn’t just a backdrop for your stay, it’s an integral part of the experience. Home to the Royal Meadows Equestrian Centre, you can indulge in the joy of horse riding or simply enjoy watching these majestic animals.
The farm also boasts a small orchard, market gardens, a beehive, and a flock of charming Suffolk sheep. It’s a delightful experience for those who love or want to learn more about farm life.
Nearby Attractions and Activities
If you can tear yourself away from the tranquility of The Meadows, there’s plenty to explore nearby. For the gourmets, places like Bam Bam Italian and the Yarra Valley Winery & Restaurants offer sensational culinary experiences.
Nature lovers can explore Sky High Mount Dandenong or Silvan Reservoir. And don’t forget the Australian Rainbow Trout Farm, perfect for a family-friendly adventure.

During my stay, one of the most magical moments was sitting outside the tiny house at dusk, watching the sky change colors over the fields. The tranquility is something city life can’t offer. I highly recommend taking a morning walk around the farm; it’s a refreshing way to start the day.
