280km north-west of Sydney, via Mudgee or Bathurst.
Once a thriving Gold Mining town in the late 1800’s, now an eclectic mix of working class folk amongst artists and those still fossicking for their fortune in Gold, the historic village of Hill End is the ideal country escape for those seeking a relaxed pace and some genuine inspiration.
Welcome to The Guesthouse – Hill End.
Hill End’s finest self-contained guesthouse accommodation, set on a quiet two-acre block hosting up to four guests in a two-bedroom cottage with queen bedded rooms. Take your morning coffee to the front verandah, pull up a seat and breathe in the fresh country air. Observe the friendly locals – you’ll find an abundance of birdlife and curious roos regularly exploring your temporary backyard.
Just a 15 minute stroll from the historic village centre of Hill End, The Guesthouse is the ideal place to make your retreat.
Take the short stroll into town while enjoying the heritage streetscape and tree lined 'Avenue' that has inspired many Hill End artists, meet local characters at the Royal Hotel, replenish supplies at the General Store, grab your fossicking gear at Northey's Store, source information at the Visitor Centre, explore the town's history at the Hill End Heritage Centre, lose yourself in local memorabilia at History Hill or simply be inspired by the beauty and heritage of this historic gold rush town.
Adorning the walls of The Guesthouse are works by internationally renowned artists who live and work in Hill End, a town that is a magnet for creative minds.
You’ll enjoy all the creature comforts here, it’s ready for you to enjoy year round with a combustion fireplace and reverse cycle air conditioning. Guests can keep in touch with FREE WiFi.
Why not stop in at nearby Mudgee, made famous for its impressive food + wine scene, just 70 km ‘down the road’ to sample and select locally grown produce to bring home to The Guesthouse. Pour a glass or two from a Mudgee winery and prepare delicious produce with your loved one, friends or family in the well equipped kitchen or cook outside on the BBQ.
Other conveniences include a large shed with undercover parking, laundry with washing machine and dryer, ironing facilities, TV, DVD player, radio + CD player, board games and an established orchard where guests are encouraged to pick and eat in season.
You really do need to stay at least two nights to soak up the serenity of Hill End. In fact, we encourage our guests to take a little longer to truly relax with discounted rates available for longer stays. All enquiries welcome.
Your hosts, Casey + Cara
