Cottage in Robertson NSW

The Cottage at White Birch Farm is a charming sunny and cosy retreat which is now available for long term rental, set on a beautiful 25 acre hobby farm in the NSW Southern Highlands. It is fully self contained and fully furnished. To enquire about a 6 month lease, contact Susan Everdell at Inside Story Reality

The Cottage is north facing, with stunning rural views from every sun-filled window, all the way to the Blue Mountains.


There are two bedrooms, sleeping four people in total. Bedroom one is a queen bed, bedroom two has two king single beds.

Reverse cycle air conditioning is in the living room and there are oil heaters and electric blankets in the bedrooms. There is a flat screen 3D TV in the lounge.  The well equipped kitchen includes an electric stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and cooking utensils. A gas BBQ is on the verandah. The cottage is on town water supply. The rumpus room underneath has a table tennis table, washing machine and dryer.

The building is nestled in three acres of  beautiful old established gardens including Japanese maples, magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas and hundreds of bulbs.

Our pastures support 13 friendly sheep, two alpacas, three donkeys and some cattle. They all have names! We have also recorded 70 species of birds on the property.

Our farm includes a unique 12 acre rainforest with an informative signposted walk you are welcome to explore. We have recently planted an arboretum and are in the process of establishing a Japanese garden.

Tony spent three years making the track through the rainforest, then Anna, after researching selected plants and trees, organised identification signs to be installed along the path.

The owners have a large studio that was recently used by Australia’s greatest living artist John Olsen, to paint his biggest work since the Sydney Opera House mural.


Here is a clip that was filmed in the studio from our documentary film The King Sun John Olsen a Portrait at 85. Catherine Hewgill principal cellist with the Sydney Symphony plays the cello while John paints.


Unfortunately as we have vulnerable animals and wildlife we don’t allow pets.

Children should be 5 or over.

The property is strictly non smoking.

For your added security, this property is only managed in Australia and we never request payments be made to overseas bank accounts.

  1. We have really enjoyed staying at the Cottage and loved the farm animals – especially Tony and Anna who are the best humanoids around! The ambiance is 5 star plus with that touch of class that only the best hosts can provide. Once unpacked at the Cottage you’ll never want to leave.


  2. Tony & Anna we enjoyed staying at The Cottage so much and although your January dates are blacked out, we have more overseas visitors coming over Christmas and we would have loved to take them to The Cottage for a couple of nights between the 3rd & 8th January if it by some chance it is available.
    We thoroughly enjoyed your DVD “A Place Called Robertson” and had it not been for having family and grand children in Sydney I think we would be Robertsons in Robertson. Best regards Ian & Trish Robertson
