“Camphill" as it has been known in the district since 1860 - is not just a farm stay - it’s an echo of a time zone - one of confident simplicity, dramatic landscapes and birdsong chorus. Situated a five minute drive from the cafes, wineries, restaurants, antique shops and old pubs of historic Rylstone, it is the ideal option for those seeking peace, privacy, space and authenticity. We offer two houses with accommodation on a 60 acre horse establishment - Camphill Homestead and Camphill Cottage.


This charming, rustic cottage offers two queen size bedrooms and a large mezzanine loft with three single beds, and a sofa bed in a small reading room sleeping a total of eight.

All beds are endowed with quality manchester and electric blankets. The large living area is equipped with a cosy wood fire and reverse cycle air conditioner. A glass enclosed verandah on the northern side looks out over a large dam to the mountains and at sunset will still the buzziest mind. The eastern verandah looks toward original haysheds and horse stables from a bygone era.


Camphill Homestead is situated on a horse establishment where horses graze the green paddocks bound by post and rail fencing. The property dates back to the 1860s and had it’s origins as a Cobb & Co blacksmith’s shop forging horse shoes, farm implements, carriage wheels and tools necessary for life in the Central West. The original stone “blacksmith’s forge” still stands to this day located on the 60 acre property.

Established gardens are a mixture of native and deciduous trees and plants providing shade and habitat for native fauna such as wombats, wallabies and native birdlife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Wedding Weekend We came to Rylstone for a wedding and made a 4day weekend of it. Camp Hill Cottage was the perfect place for us to stay. Thankyou Janet for your hospitality..the welcome treats & home made bread were lovely, the beds were comfy with nice linens and quality towels too. The fully equipped kitchen made it easy for us to cook just like home. Your quick thinking in getting us to the wedding via the "back roads" was perfect timing. We loved walking around your property visiting the horses, especially Othello & Shona who were so gentle and a treat to feed every morning. Canoeing in Dunnes Swamp was a great recommendation..we loved it. What a relaxing place to be Thankyou Fiona, Troy, Jane, Carl, Charlotte & Olivia

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful retreat A quaint cottage a stones throw outside Rylstone. The cottage has everything you need for a peaceful and relaxing get away especially the goodies left for our enjoyment on arrival by Janet. Janet was lovely and contacted us prior to our visit to provide excellent directions to the property and proved to be a wonderful guide to things to see and do within the Rylstone/Mudgee area. We loved our visit and would recommend this property for any family looking for a farm stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cosy cottage and perfect host! Our group of 7 loved staying at Camphill Cottage, and particularly appreciated all the personal touches that made the place feel so welcoming. Janet was the consummate host, and has really gone above and beyond to create a lovely country getaway. Having breakfast out on the terrace with the view was ideal, as were the cosy nights by the fire. The kitchen/pantry had everything we needed and then some, beds were comfy, and the living room spacious. Would definitely recommend the place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful Cottage Delightful cottage, surrounded by paddocks, so country. We were welcomed with the fire blazing, warming the cottage. Janet our host was so friendly and accommodating, making sure our stay was enjoyable. The fridge and cupboard were stock with essentials, such a relief after our long drive, we had everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom with under floor heating was just what we needed in the very cold morning. I would highly recommend this beautiful place to stay.
