IDEAL LOCATION FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Welcome to Terrralong Farm
Terralong is just 4 minute drive from the shops and cafes of Kangaroo Valley village.
The house is set in a large, well established garden and looks north, east and west over the valley to the escarpments on the other sides. It is a spectacular spot.
In the cooler months a fog is formed on the valley floor, so the front lawn seems to border a white lake which stretches to far away cliffs.
It has been said that Terralong probably has the best positioned house in the whole valley ? it faces north-east and enjoys unsurpassed views; it is just above the fog line; it is at the top of a slope which catches and accentuates cooling breezes in summer, but is protected from southerly weather in winter; and still is near the village, which is hidden just 4 minutes away at the bottom of the hill behind a gum forest.
The cattle are silver Murray Greys, a breed noted for their gentle nature. But mothers with young calves should be given a fairly wide berth, as they can feel threatened. The herd is rotated through the paddocks, so please leave all gates as you find them.
About 50 acres of the property is bush, the rest green pastures. There are some great walks to the tops of the hills, and the views from all over the property are pretty special.
If you are not ones for walking around the 150 acres, you will find plenty of space to move around in at the house.
Terralong sleeps eight with a maximum of 10. The house has one king size en suite room, a double room and two single rooms. We also have a very large rumpus room that has a double bed for extras.
All linen is provided, towels are supplied to the main beds, and can be hired by others for an extra cost.
Food and good company being the only thing you will need to bring!
OUTSIDE IS WHERE YOU WILL WANT TO BE
Kangaroos and wallabies usually come out to sun themselves in the late afternoon.
Wombats are common, especially at night.
The odd echidna can be seen padding around at any time.
Wedge-tailed eagles ride the thermals from the valley floor, circling at about the same level as the house. Flocks of black Major Mitchell cockatoos sometimes fill the trees.
With a well established garden and unsurpassed views over the valley. A beautiful shady tree to sit under and have breakfast or lunch, or even take a swim in the pool.
A BBQ is at the house for your use, with plenty of tables and chairs for your evening dinner watching the stars and moon at night.

Well this was my 4 trip back to terralong and this time I shared with my family and close friends. They lived it just as much as I have on my 3 girls weekends away! The cows kept the kids amused, berry was great for some retail therapy and sitting out in the lawn as the sunsets sipping on a wine is heaven. Thanks for sharing your tranquility with us.

My family and I had an amazing time at Terralong. The property looks great on the website but is even better in person. The house location is very private with fantastic views from extensive lawn and gardens at the front of the house. We can't say enough about the location, pool and the sunset walks with the kids spotting kangaroos and wombats! The hosts were very easy to deal with and the house is well equipped (good kitchen, lots of space, chopped wood, kids games, books, CDs and linen). We highly recommend this place.

Great house for family groups. Great location and great view. Had everything we needed for a short stay. Lots of room both indoors and outdoor for everyone to stay and relax.

Terralong Farm provided great accommodation for six women. It is a large house, with plenty of beds and separate living spaces. The kitchen was very well equipped and great for entertaining. The views were absolutely outstanding. The combustion fire was a warm welcome on the cool nights, and we were fortunate enough that one of our group had a similar system at home so looked after the fire for us. We all enjoyed our weekend away.

My family of 5 had a fantastic short break at Terralong. We enjoyed lots of lovely walking on the property. The kids (and grown ups) were thrilled to see kangaroos and wombats on our early evening "torch" walks. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the great coffee available in Kangaroo Valley Village just a short drive from the house. Our Golden Retriever had the best time of all! Nothing better than long walks off leash (he even had a romp on the beach close to Berry - doggy heaven!) I would highly recommend this property for a great winter break - we loved the gigantic open fire place and good heating throughout the house. We intend to head back there for another holiday soon.
