Springmead offers glorious views of the Blue Mountains and glimpses of Lake Lyell. The quiet ambience is really only broken by the sound of our chickens and the wild birds with the occasional horse whinny thrown in! Kangaroos often visit the paddock in front of the house and wombats can also be seen. Many birds including wrens, parrots and cockatoos live in the garden and surrounds and the resident Kookaburra family live just below the house. A beautiful location to just simply sit back and relax or use this as your base to explore the surrounding area. A continental breakfast is included and a cooked breakfast is available at a small fee.
Cheese platters and wine or beer are available for purchase and are perfect for enjoying in the courtyard garden. Dinners are also available and picnic hampers can be supplied with prior notice.
Guests have their own private bathroom ( not ensuite) and a welcome to enjoy the breakfast room and guest lounge. We also have a lovely courtyard and veranda that we encourage you to use and is perfect for outdoor dinning or just enjoying a wine and cheese platter while watching the sunset.
We respect your privacy however will be available to help you plan your site seeing and to make sure that your stay is enjoyable. We are available for a chat and enjoy hearing about your travel experiences and plans. The most important thing to us is for you to enjoy your stay.
We have 2 house cats who will interact with you as much as you choose, and 2 outside dogs all of who are friendly !
Springmead is a non smoking environment and we ask you to be respectful of our animals. We enjoy sharing our pets and farm but ask that you talk to us first before enjoying the farm.
