Description

Idyllic hideaway cottage set between the bush and the farm just over half an hour from Orange. Outdoor bath with hot water, fresh air and a view. Well appointed with all the comforts you could need. 3 bedrooms to suit up to 6 people. Fully equipped kitchen. New indoor bathroom. Comfortable living area with wood fire and magnificent view. Bush garden with views across the rolling hills to Mount Canobolas. Explore the forest, walk in the paddocks, or along the creek, see the birds, kangaroos, wallabies, emus, eagles, wombats, and maybe an echidna or a platypus. Enjoy the peace and quiet.

Outdoor bath with hot running water, fresh air and a view. Lie back listen to the birds settle down for the night, see the kangaroos come across the paddock, watch the stars come out. A truly wonderful experience.

10 minutes to Cudal or Manildra. 30 minutes to vineyards, restaurants, Canowindra, Molong or 40 minutes to Orange.

Dirt road access - both public road and on-farm track, conditions vary on both. You will need at least average clearance, although 4WD is not required.

We cannot take pets.

Sunny house with

1 Queen bed in master bedroom

1 Double bed in second bedroom

2 King singles in third bedroom - can be converted to King Double

All with built in cupboards and plenty of space.

Slow combustion heater.

Free to air TV

Telstra and Optus mobile reception possibly other providers too

Lots of books, boardgames and puzzles.

Kitchen stocked with basics as well as some local goodies and a little produce from the farm vegie garden.

Beautiful walks across the paddocks or through the bush right at your door.

Space for the kids to run around, ride their bikes or just potter about in the yard or the paddock. You can watch from the verandah with a coffee or a glass of wine.

Wineries close by and all the other attractions of Cabonne and Orange districts.

Handy location for Orange Food and Wine Festivals, Canowindra Balloon Festival and National Field Day at Borenore.

There are 3 golf courses in Orange, plus courses in other surrounding towns - Canowindra, Molong, Forbes, Parkes, Cowra, all within easy day-trip distance.

Nangar National Park short distance away.

We are a working farm, and on the edge of a real forest, so children must be kept in sight at all times to ensure their safety. The creek is on the farm, but is 2km from the house. In wetter periods there are streams closer to the house. Kids or adults can play at building dams, paddle, etc, in any of these, season and safety permitting.

Our weather is between that of Parkes and Orange. It is hotter in summer and colder in winter than Sydney - but not as cold as Orange.

We are in the country, there will always be wildlife, from kangaroos, emus and eagles to snakes, lizards and insects.

We occasionally have floods which prevent access to the farm. If this occurs and your booking has to be cancelled, we will refund the full cost of the booking, except the Stayz fee, or you can change your booking to another date.

We sometimes have heat waves in summer. The Rockies does now have air conditioning and we are happy to share our pool if you are here in hot weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truely great rural retreat This was our second visit, being two young boys plus mum and dad. We loved our stay, especially the bonfire, the outdoor bath under the milky way, exploring the farm and sheep and cattle and the tractor ride, picnic by the creek, spying on kangaroos, collecting bones and making our own 'moster' skeletons. Sally and Jonno and family are great hosts. We will be back again and cant wait.
