Located 10kms west of Bendemeer in a peaceful valley. Enjoy waking up to bird calls, views of rolling hills and gumtrees. An early morning cuppa on your sun drenched verandah overlooking the paddocks as the cattle graze, is a relaxing way to start your day.
Have a stroll by the creek or walk among the cows and calves as they graze. Or we can drive you up to Sunset Ridge where you feel on top of the world looking down the valley.
A gourmet breakfast, included in the tariff, consists of juice, fruits, free range eggs and fresh herbs picked straight from the garden, finished with homemade jams from our own fruit, tea or freshly ground coffee. Local produce is used when in season.
Or should you prefer, a breakfast basket can be brought to the cottage to have at your leisure.
Delicious dinners are also available and require advance notice please. (72 hours is preferable)
Or for a romantic celebration, a candlelit dinner, soft music and later check out are our specialty.
We are environmentally friendly and non-smoking.
Visit craft shops, wineries and lavender farm, in the local area, and further afield antique shops, museums, woollen mill, berry farm, waterfalls and gorges. We can arrange for a helicopter flight over the gorges, a picnic lunch and pick up from the front paddock. Go trout fishing in the McDonald River or at sunset look for the platypus under the old bridge. Visit Walcha with its street sculptures and art gallery.
