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.
Tariff includes all linen, towels, bedding, tea and coffee and free wifi. 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, and DVDs, books and games are provided. The well equipped kitchen includes an electric stove, oven, 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.
We 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.
We welcome families, but The Cottage is essentially designed for couples and singles (there is no bath and there are four fishponds on the property). Children should be 5 or over unless by prior arrangement and children must be supervised.
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.
