Hepburn Springs, Daylesford, and Castlemaine are all thriving country towns with an abundance of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, shops, and day spas. They are 15-20 minutes HWY drive away .
Guildford on the other hand is a quaint little town with only one pub, general store and post office, and life here is mostly quiet. The general store does have very nice homemade food and the pub serves dinner every night. Guildford is 2 minutes away and you get much better value for money.
