Tricklebeck is set on 6 acres of natural bushland on the exclusive Shipley Plateau with a huge paddock and peaceful gardens. Give your family an authentic country lifestyle experience: feed our pet alpacas, Pedro and Sylvester; collect eggs for your breakfast from our chickens, go yabbying in our magnificent dam and toast marshmallows in the outdoor fire pit. Or just watch your kids jump for hours on our giant enclosed trampoline.

The house has 4 bedrooms and sleeps 8 comfortably. The master bedroom has a queen bed and en suite, the second bedroom has a double bed, bedroom 3 has a bunk bed and the fourth bedroom has two single beds which can be converted to a king if need be. All the beds have electric blankets and both of the bathrooms have heated towel racks and heating lights. All bedrooms have heaters.

The living room has a roaring combustion fire with firewood provided. It also has reverse cycle air conditioning/heating and a TV and DVD.

The dining setting seats up to eight and the kitchen has a dishwasher, oven and microwave.

There is also a laundry with a third toilet, washing machine, drier and iron for your convenience.

Additionally there is a large decked area for outdoor dining with a large BBQ as well as a quiet private balcony overlooking the fully fenced dam. The dam is great place to swim in summer! For the kids there is a huge enclosed trampoline and a swing set.

The property has an abundance of native wildlife, including an array of birdlife that visit each morning and evening. Several wombats live on the property and the paddock is often visited by wallabies and kangaroos.

We also have a one bedroom studio cottage on the property and can be rented out for larger groups. See "Tricklebeck Cottage" in Stayz.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rather tired We had a good stay apart from the electricity tripping when too many heaters were on. The house was clean but needs some updating. The alpacas and wildlife, birds etc were wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning location - totally relaxing! Loved our stay in this tranquil part of the mountains. Plenty of room inside and out - cosy fire and picturesque views. Will be going back again to experience springtime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful home away from home! We needed a larger house to fit our extended family in and found much more than space at Tricklebeck! The big dining table was great, and the house felt really homely and well cared for. The kids loved the chooks and seeing Dad get spat on by Pedro! Also loved the wood fire in the cold & rainy weather. Owner is lovely - thanks for a good stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Stay - We Felt Right at Home We love Tricklebeck! The kids and I had a wonderful stay and so relaxing. We felt right at home the moment we arrived; just like visiting a friend without them being there. I especially liked how well equipped the kitchen was. Washer and dryer downstairs was an welcome bonus.
