Description

You have the 150 acres to yourself and it is close to great attractions. The farm has friendly Boer goats, alpacas and small Irish Dexter cattle. There are 340 million year old fossils to collect. The terrain is mostly flat country and a creek flows 1km along one boundary. Take nature walks and see the wildlife - especially birds, wallabies, & goannas.

The house is a small four bedroom cottage with a large covered veranda. It has a bath/shower, separate toilet and ensuite in the main bedroom. There is a well equipped kitchen- gas cooktop and oven, dishwasher. The lounge room has a comfy leather lounge, is reverse cycled air conditioned as is one of the bedrooms. There are polished floorboards and ceiling fans throughout. One bedroom has a Queen size bed, one has a Queen bed, the other two rooms have two single beds each. There is also a trundle with mattresses to give flexibility in the sleeping arrangements. The house is surrounded by a nice garden in the twp acre house paddock.

The house has internet broadband.

You will find books & magazines to read, two TVs and DVD/VCR, Xbox, Wii (some games but bring your own) , gas and wood BBQs and a phone for local calls.
There is a table-tennis table, cricket gear swing set and a trampoline.

Pets are very welcome but normally must stay out of the house. The "house paddock" is well fenced to keep most dogs in and the undercover veranda will protect them in bad weather.

Our insurance company has advised that we cannot be insured if you want to ride trail bikes, so sorry but these are not allowed.

It is located about 2.5 hours drive north of northern Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. From Sydney follow the F3 freeway north to Bulahdelah. The farm is only 10 mins drive from the town of Bulahdelah and only 5 mins from the Pacific Highway.

Fingal Farm has solar panels and exports "green" electricity to the electricity grid.

If Fingal Farm is booked out when you want it, then have a look at Fingal Beachhouse instead. (www.stayz.com.au/27108).

The calendar is always up to date and the detailed tariffs for the whole year are shown on this website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect place to get away Both adults and children will love this place its tranquil but still has plenty to do. Everything you could possibly want has been supplied for both adults and children. The kids loved feeding the animals, exploring the quarry and property and playing all the games and toys supplied. There is an abundance of reading material for adults and day beds to relax on. Plenty of room and very clean. Loved the place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place to stay for the family We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the chance to feed the many animals on the farm. The house is spacious and with a wealth of games, books, sports equipment, and best of all a crackling fire if the nights are cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous farm stay experience This was our third visit to Fingal Farm. We always thoroughly enjoy being at the farm and are sad when it's time to leave. My 11-year-old and 8-year-old loved feeding the goats, ponies, cattle and alpacas. We love the beauty of the surrounding bush and the endless space and activities for the kids (eg trampoline, ping pong table, opportunity to look for fossils in the quarry or build a fire and toast marshmellows). The proximity to beautiful lakes and beaches is also wonderful; there's so much to do in the area. I highly recommend this farm stay!
