Description

The character filled 'Old Homestead', is the property's original 139 year old farm house and is one of four wonderful self contained cottages located at Minimbah Farm, a magnificent 150 acre beef cattle property nestled in beautiful Kangaroo Valley.

Relax and take in the stunning views from the verandahs, wander around the wonderful farm which is surrounded by lush rainforest. Enjoy a bbq at the creek, feed the goats, collect the eggs from the friendly chooks, go wombat spotting at night, and if you are patient and quiet enough, you just might spot "Felix" our resident Platypus. There is also a mini golf course. Minimbah Farm is well away from the main road and is sure to please.

Located 2km from the village in Kangaroo Valley where you will find excellent cafes and restaurants as well as many speciality shops. Activities include canoeing, horseriding, golf and tennis. Kangaroo Valley is 30 minutes to beaches and 30 minutes to the Southern Highlands.

In situations where there are no other bookings immediately before or after yours, we are more than happy to offer you an early check in (10am) and a late check out (4pm). Just ask us if this is available just before arriving.

Folks just keep coming back to Minimbah !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you could want in a relaxing getaway. My partner and I booked the Old Homestead and the Cottage at Minimbah farm for a farewell gathering. Both houses contained ample entertaining space, play equipment for young children and fenced yards. The old homestead even had a spa set on the edge of the hill with beautiful views. The houses contained everything you could possibly need including: Gas electric and wood heaters with plenty of wood ready to burn. First aid kits, insect repellants, spare tea towels, tea and sugar stations, complimentary milk and tim-tams, gumboots for every size, egg collecting baskets, alpacca food, puzzles, local maps, farm maps, shampoo and conditioner and much much more. The kitchens were very functional with plenty of spare cups, plates, glasses, oven mits, cake tins, entertaining bowls etc. Although, there was no dishwasher which would have made the final clean up a little easier. The Queen beds were amazingly comfortable and beautifully made up, the bunk beds were a little rocky and pull out beds were a little on the uncomfy side. I read bad reviews about the driveway prior to arriving, however, my little Hyundai Getz had no trouble getting up the road rain or shine. My advice is keep it slow and steady, that way you maintain traction. All in all it was a 10/10 weekend. We loved watching the cattle move to various grazing patches whilst relaxing in the hot spa. Our visits from the old wombat whom we named Gertrude simply topped our weekend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavenly, breathtaking and utterly relaxing. Very comfortable accommodation and lots of space for children to run around. The children particularly enjoyed feeding the cows, goats and alpacas and collecting the eggs from the chickens each morning for breakfast! Definitely coming again! Thank you.
