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.

Fingal Farm Farmstay (farmhouse, farmstay pets & children welcome) on 150 acres near Bulahdelah, Myall Lakes with internet is rated 4.6769 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! We had an amazing time here. There was plenty of room for the kids to run free and explore the different trails on the farm. We had the pleasure of the goats' company on several of our walks, which the kids found most amusing. The animals were mostly very friendly and easy to approach to hand feed and pat. The farmhouse was clean, tidy, spacious and comfortable. It had everything we needed and the BBQ was an absolute winner when it came to cooking. It was wonderful we were able to take our four legged family member with us on our trip and she also enjoyed herself immensely, meeting animals she had never seen before and having free run of the farm. Overall, fantastic stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Fingal Farm Beautiful house on some beautiful farmland with some really gorgeous animals. The house catered to everything we needed (as a family of four) but could sleep another family quite easily. We had a ball feeding the goats, alpacas and cattle. We'll definitely be back soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fingal Farm The past six nights have been great. The kids have enjoyed feeding and patting the animals each day. The home has all the modern conveniences you could ask for and enough rooms and living areas so we could spread out and relax. The large verandas were the ideal place to relax in the afternoons while the kids played ping pong, or sit around while cooking on the BBQ. The beaches and shops were only a short distance away but far enough to get away from the Christmas holiday crowds each day. The local pub and Bowlo in Bulahdelah put on great meals. A great place to get away, only a few hours from the city, and unwind from a busy year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a great time at the farm. It has a very comfortable feel about it which made us feel right at home. The animals are very friendly and a joy to watch. We'll definitely be back. We'd recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxed/comfortable time or even if you want to be active around the property. Unfortunately the rain kept us in doors a bit but enjoyable all the same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great place to relax, nice friendly animals, roomy house, amazing veranda! Good location too, just 10 mins off Pacific Highway. They have a TV etc, but you won't use it, even if it rains you'll still be sitting on that veranda looking out across the farm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fingal Farm is the perfect escape for anyone looking for a relaxing time. From relaxing on the sun drenched verandas to feeding the very friendly animals, our stay was great. Even in winter the house was wonderfully warm and cosy. We would recommend Fingal Farm to anyone and will surely be back in the future.
