ABOUT CORNWALLIS HOUSE:
------------------------------------------

LOCATION: -

Conveniently located on Sydney's north west doorstep in the "lowlands" region of the upper Hawkesbury Valley, in a little pocket of paradise only 4 minutes drive from Windsor and just over a 1 hour drive from the city centre.

Situated on a quiet country lane with no through traffice, and hidden among the orange groves on the banks of the Hawkesbury River you will find Cornwallis House, a luxurious holiday home, ideal for those looking to find the perfect escape.

The surrounding area is a flat rural picturesque patchwork of citrus orchards, small agricultural farms, turf farms, equestrian stud farms and polo fields. You cant help but be absorbed by the tranquility of the river.

Cornwallis House is grand and charming, blending with its surroundings perfectly. The interior is contemporary and stylish, creating an atmosphere of elegant comfort and total relaxation.

This house provides guests with a level of comfort, space, privacy and relaxation unmatched in the area.

OUR GUESTS LOVE.......
---------------------------------.
The surrounding uninterrupted 360 degree VIEWS that give the house its WOW factor!
You will be mesmerised from the minute you arrive till the minute you leave.

Feeling like they're way out in the country, yet they're still so close to the city, and that they don't have to spend hours to get there.

The superbly equipped gourmet kitchen (including coffee machine), which is the focal point of the house and the place where everyone tends to gather. The kitchen (and outdoor BBQ on the verandah) is for people who like to cook. You won't need to bring anthing extra with you it is completely fitted out with everything you are ever likely to need to cook up a storm.

Soaking in our 6 person outdoor SPA which has prime position on a mezzanine deck facing the river and offering the best views in the Hawkesbury! Sunset and stargazing from the spa on a clear night makes for a memorable stay (sunrise is pretty spectacular too for early risers).

Escaping for a snooze, or a quiet read and there's no more tranquil place to do so than in one of our 4 extra large family size hammocks on the upstairs wraparound verandah. The kids love them too.

Wandering through the orchard picking orange fruit straight from the trees (in season May - Sep),
You'll never taste orange juice as good as this anywhere else.

Fishing from the riverbank.

Going for a walks down the quiet country lane.

Exploring the many great attractions of the area, including some outstanding cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as the local historic buildings and lively art scene.


ENTERTAINING:
----------------------
Cornwallis House was designed with entertaining in mind. There are two levels of outdoor space, one upstairs and one downstairs, with multiple outdoor settings and places to relax and dine outdodors. It's perfect for small groups who like to stay in and cook for themselves, spending quality time together relaxing with a few drinks over long lazy meals.

We allow guests to invite extra family or friends to visit during their stay, however there are limits and venue hire fees, depending on the numbers and your requirements. Please ask us about this when you enquire, and remember that honesty is the best policy.


INDOOR ENTERTAINMENT:
-------------------------------------
On the days when the weather is not so good you'll find shelves of new paperback novels, stacks of magazines, over 160 DVDs to watch or CD's to listen to, a Wii games console with adult & childrens games, as well as a large variety of new board games & card games to play, complete with a poker set, as well as a full size table tennis set up in the multi purpose room downstairs.


OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES:
-----------------------------------
When you're feeling active we have 8 adult and 2 childrens bikes (with helmets). You can choose to go for a ride along the country lanes exploring the Cornwallis "lowlands" area, or you could go for a nice flat ride into town (Windsor) along a new bike path, where you'll find an ice cream shop, an old fashioned lolly shop plus lots of cafes, restaurants, pizzerias, pubs, and shops.


HAPPY KIDS, HAPPY PARENTS, HAPPY HOLIDAY.....
Our guests tell us how glorious it is not to hear their children say the dreaded 2 words..."I'm bored". There's always something to keep them happy and occupied. We have a small cubby house, acres of grounds and lawn for outdoor games such as volleyball, cricket, baseball, soccer, badminton, croquet and boules. We also have an orchard full of orange trees to pick the fruit from (in season). In summer we have an inflatable water slide for the toddlers (see image in the photo gallery) and two "slip n slides". We also have loads of childrens DVDs and board games.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOMETHING EXTRA:

*LAZY LATE CHECK OUT DEAL
---------------------------------------------
Our proximity to the city means it is easily accessible for weekend stays. You can be at Cornwallis in a ONE HOUR DRIVE from just about anywhere in Sydney.

So, instead of checking out at 11:00 a.m., on Sunday mornings, as you would with most other accommodation properties, why not stretch your break further in the Hawkesbury by staying until late on your last night, or better still, have a bonus extra night and check out the Monday morning, at no extra cost. (Subject to availability at the time). We call this our LAZY LATE CHECK OUT DEAL (Stay 3/Pay 2 nights special offer)

IN-HOUSE SERVICES
------------------------------

To enhance your stay we can arrange in house PAMPER TREATMENTS or a PRIVATE COOK/ CHEF to prepare a special meal for you. Please ask us about this.


WEDDINGS:
----------------
We have many groups stay with us who are either getting married, or are attending a wedding, at one of the many fabulous local wedding venues.

We're often asked we will allow weddings on the property, and the answer is generally Yes, our guests are welcome to have their wedding at Cornwallis House. We're well set up for small country garden weddings on site. Maximum number is 100, and venue hire fees apply. Please contact the owners, Angelo and Alannah, for more information and a quotation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful home away from home Our group enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at this gorgeous property hidden amongst the orchards. Alannah & Angelo were the perfect hosts, meeting us at the door Friday night to show us around the property. We were a group of 10 people and yet we felt there was enough room for all. The 4 bedrooms are large, each with ensuites provided total privacy for each room. We also had additional blow up double beds set up in the function room to accommodate our large group. The kitchen is completely stocked with cutlery, crockery & appliances for all your cooking needs. Alannah & Angelo even supplied us with a beautiful breakfast for the first morning of our stay! The combined dinning and lounge area is very spacious and comfortable. The whole upstairs entertaining area was light & airy with full height windows and doors opening out onto a massive deck area which looks out onto the Hawkesbury river. The large downstairs " function" room comes stocked with lots of sporting equipment, games & even a table tennis table. The highlight for us were the beautiful hammocks that hang in the corners of the wrap around deck and the spa bath that looks directly over the Hawkesbury. We also took advantage of the generous BONUS NIGHT OFFER and enjoyed check a stay over until the Monday morning. We highly recommend this beautiful property for your stay in Windsor!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnificent Cornwallis House....Bellissimo Our family enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at this amazingly large Queenslander style home hidden amongst the orange orchards. All 4 bedrooms are large with separate ensuites providing total privacy for 4 couples. The kitchen is complete with every appliance and accessory necessary for your cooking needs. The lounge room is spacious and comfortable, light and airy with full height windows and doors opening out onto a massive deck area which looks out onto the Hawkesbury river. The downstairs " function" room is massive with a vast supply of sporting equipment and games. We made great use of the table tennis. Alannah and Angelo were most welcoming and we were very happy to get the extra Sunday night stay which meant that we didn't have to rush out that evening. We can thoroughly recommend this beautiful property for your stay in Windsor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning property <3 I recently stayed here with my bridesmaids the night before my wedding day and we honestly had the most beautiful time. Alannah & Angelo were on site to great my bridesmaids and they had very sweetly stocked the fridge with bacon and eggs for breakfast and there was even a box of Malteasers waiting for us too! The house itself is stunning and we had a great time just before sunset lounging around in the hot tub taking in that stunning view of the lake and surrounding countryside. Very well equipped kitchen for a longer stay too! We will be back for our anniversary so the hubby can enjoy it next time :-) xxxx Jasmine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ***Magnificent and Outstanding*** Celebrating my 60th Birthday at Cornwallis House was the most enjoyable experience - considering I was turning this grand age! The whole Australia Day weekend was a huge success. The photos shown on this website are exactly what you can expect when you view the property. The house is exceptionally roomy, having 4 kingsize bedrooms and a giant rumpus/entertaining area downstairs. I had 12 guests staying, so 4 guests were accommodated downstairs in the rumpus area. Alannah and Angelo had gone to great lengths to provide separate private areas for these 4 guests and each of them had their individual needs met for sleeping. The house is equipped with EVERYTHING you need to have an event. I had 28 guests attend my birthday that weekend and all cutlery, whiteware, glassware, tables and chairs, bars, tablecloths, outdoor bar tables and chairs and more were provided for a small extra fee per head. Usually, when arriving at any accommodation for an event such as mine, you expect to have to buy or bring items that are not provided in the hire fee. Well, in this case NOTHING was lacking. Pots, pans, pantry essentials and more! If you had of wanted to bake your own birthday cake you could of! There are two kitchens in the house as well as four ensuites which give you plenty of options for catering an event upstairs or down. The grounds around the house are private and the orange groves are very useful for freshly squeezed OJ in the morning! They even supply the electric orange juicer! Alannah and Angelo thank you so much for everything you thought of, supplied and did to make my 60th birthday weekend the best I could have asked for. Nothing was too much trouble and your attention to detail with all the information you supplied was much appreciated. All my guests who stayed in the house and those who stayed at the Seibel in Windsor were able to relax and feel at home in your beautiful home. A big thank you from all of us!
