Please note that the property is not suitable for bucks/hens groups or other groups looking to have loud parties. Dinner parties or family birthday gatherings etc are fine. As it is a working farm, the property is also not suitable for pets unfortunately.
Charleson is officially a B&B and there is an on site manager. Basic breakfast provisions can be provided but most groups prefer to self cater using the extensive kitchen facilities.
We endeavour to provide a 6pm checkout to enable guests to maximise their break, but this depends on whether there are other guests arriving that day.
Comments from guests
"This house was absolutely incredible. From the minute we walked into the house we felt totally relaxed and calm. The silence of the region plus the comfort of all the decor was gorgeous. We spent most of our time either watching the gorgeous fireplace roaring with heat, or sitting out watching the world go by. Thank you so much for our time there - everyone agreed that we WILL be back again!!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of farm living, and the farm tours run by Russel are educational and entertaining."
"We had a brilliant time down at Charleson Farm for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Our 3 kids loved the place and the room outside to run around, and also quite enjoyed chasing the roos and helping with the fire duties. While we felt completely isolated (which is what we wanted), there were plenty of great food and wine places within 15-20 minutes to satisfy all our needs. Currently working out when our next trip to Charleson will be. Thanks - it was just brilliant."
"Our weekend was fantastic, we can not say enough about the gorgeous house and for thinking of all the little things needed but often forgotten. We had an amazing time with all the tired and frazzled mothers leaving yesterday feeling revived and a little sore from the laughter and warm with memories that we will keep with us for a long time. It really was a special weekend."
"Charleson Farm was very nice ... the perfect place for families who want total seclusion. The kangaroos came right up to the house almost every day."
"WOW that was great holiday even though we were rained in, we still went walking in the rain and dried by the beautiful fireplace! We definitely plan to come and stay again - it is hard to find such a nice house that fits all my siblings in it!!"
"The house is fantastic for a group weekend away, with all quarters very well designed"
