Comfortable relaxing cottage set on 90 acres on the slopes of the Wollemi National Park in the heart of the stunning Capertee Valley.

Home consists of :

- large living / dining room , 3 sofa's around wood burning stove . Air conditioning unit.

- 3 reasonable sized bedrooms

1 Queen sized bed with ensuite bathroom , bath / shower , basin and WC

1 Double sized bed with ensuite bathroom shower , basin , and WC

1 Bedroom with 2 x double single bunks

- Newly fitted out kitchen with electric hotplate , fan oven , microwave and reasonable selection pots , pans and basic necessities

- Large outside deck area over looking valley (and our small flock of sheep/ alpaca's)

All bedrooms and bathrooms have additional heating and the living room fire helps heat the place in the depths of winter. Additional blankets are available if needed for no additional charge.

The kitchen has most basics like coffee / tea / sugar / flour . some herbs / spices/ ketchup and olive oil but if you turn up and find you left that crucial ingredient at home , your chicken has gone off , or you've run out of wine, then pop round and we will see what we can do to help. Being 30 mins away from the nearest shop means you learn to stock up well. We also have free range eggs (kids welcome to collect them if accompanied by an adult).

The cottage has a new TV , DVD player and iPod dock in the lounge are and an old plasma tv / dvd player in the bunk room , but no TV reception or wifi. We are happy to lend DVD's at no charge from our own collection provided they boomerang!. There is no phone or mobile reception at the cottage but there is mobile reception and wifi at our house if needed .

All linen and towels included

NB The basic tariiff assumes 2 couples staying for two nights . The basic tariff will be capped at $380per night for a minimum 2 night stay for upto 8 adult guests. The weekly rate is based on four adults . Kids we basically charge $5 per night, teens $15pn .We are happy to quote for other permutations (including one couple only ) just drop us a line and we will respond asap.

The cottage is a really comfortable place to stay and it's hard to describe but everyone that has been here has noted the really relaxing "karma" of the place.

We used it as our weekender for 5 years before committing to build our own place elsewhere on the property . Happy to leave you to enjoy your stay by yourselves , or share what we've learned as city folks who have made the move to the country , built a strawbale home and learned about boys toys , livestock and the rest. Based on our current stockimg density we should be classified as wombat and kangaroo farmers.

We are pet friendly ( we even have some kennels ) .

Apart from one small threshold step the cottage is probably wheel chair accessible . Call us to discuss

Things to do

Bird watching, mountain bike riding , painting / sketching and bush walking are the obvious ones. Glen Davis has the old shale oil works and if you are feeling energetic you can walk the pipline trail to Newnes in the Wolgan Valley ( ask me if want a lift to the starting point ) and avoid paying the $2000 a night at the Emirates resort,

In summer there is a lovely safe spot to chill out in the Capertee River 10 mins from here, or 45 mins away Dunn's Swamp (which fortunately is nothing like the image the name conjures up). Sandy beaches , deep swimming areas, canoe hire , camping grounds and boat tours.

Nearby Rylestone (45 mins) boasts the best dumpling restaurant in NSW ( yep , weird we know , but true) , the world's second best olive oil producer (missed out by a tiny fraction on the top slot) , a couple of country pubs and the odd collectibles store. Mudgee and Bathurst are both about 75 mins or so . Gulgong (fantastic museum) , Sofala and Hill End are all within a comfortable day trip.

OR , you could simply sit out on the deck and enjoy a glass or several of your favourite tipple.

Odds n Sods

Basically we want you to enjoy yourselves as our guests . If something is not right , tell us so we can try and put it right. If you need something , want to know something , ask us.

Our place is nice and cosy , but the Wolgan resort it isn't. But neither is our tariff. We are in the country , so there are critters and crawlies , bugs n more round about. Some intent on biting you , some annoying you , but mostly just doing their thing . And there is not much we can do to stop them.

We are on rain water. No chlorine , fluoride or anything else added. But it's our only source of water so please be water wise . That means if you hum in the shower think Beatles rather than Beethoven.

We have not added a cleaning charge to the bill but thats because we expect you to pretty much leave it as you found it . If we have to wash up your sunday roast and the place looks like the aftermath of a bucks party then we reseve the right to charge for breakages and additional cleaning

We will try and be inconspicious for most of your stay , but are on hand if you want to ask us something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An island of piece Wow. What a magical experience. As soon as we arrived (later than planned!) with a log fire in full flame, some freshly baked (DELICIOUS!) bread, the house lit up like a Christmas Tree and Neil providing the soundtrack with some pretty dramatic classical music – we knew we were in for a treat. The house was furnished with such eclectic taste, it really felt like you were sharing someone’s home (without them being on top of you!), we were comfortable in our beds, we played games from the big selection, we explored the beautiful scenery and Neil and Jane were on hand in their nearby home if we had any questions about where to go or what to do. Highlights for us were the location, the peace and quiet, the milky way visible from the naked eye in the evening and the true Australian vibe of living “out in the country” as well as the animals on the farm (Noel might be grumpy, I think he’s just misunderstood). Top tip – look out for the flying pig! 5 out of 5 for a great weekend, in a great home with great hosts. We’ll be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a glorious place! The house was comfy, clean, spacious well-equipped and functional and the surrounding area was utterly spectacular! We spent a week with our two kids (aged 11 and 5)exploring: hiking in the woods, looking at kangaroos, and admiring rocks, marsupial skulls (found in gullies in the National Parks), and the plethora of iridescent beetle carcases that were absolutely everywhere! Neil and Jane were very friendly and helpful and like I said--the house was a great base for the whole week. My only cautions--Capertree National Park has a locked gate at the entrance (I grew up in the US and I am still shocked at this--a locked gate at the entrance of a National Park!!!!) so you need to get the code. Plus the Pipeline trail seems to be closed at the moment--might want to check in about that if it is important to you. Thanks again, Neil and Jane! -Theresa
