Idyllic hideaway cottage set between the bush and the farm just over half an hour from Orange. Well appointed with all the comforts you could need. 3 bedrooms to suit up to 6 people. Fully equipped kitchen. New indoor bathroom + outdoor bath with hot water, fresh air and a view. 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. We are happy to share our pool if you are here in hot weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic stay! We had a lovely stay at The Rockies. It was a great place to unwind and get away from it all. Sally was a great host, leaving a goodie basket with some great local produce and delicious wine for us to enjoy. She also took us around the farm, where we got to meet the farm animals, which our daughter loved. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the wildlife outside our window each morning, going for bushwalks and exploring the countryside during the day and watching the sunset at night with a glass of wine in hand. The cottage was cosy and the fireplace kept us warm during the cold nights. The outdoor bath was a real treat too! We wanted a real authentic country experience, and we got it. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend a stay at the Rockies to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted! The four of us arrived on a Friday afternoon for a boys weekend where Sally showed us to the accommodation. We liked her enthusiasm to have a big bonfire which is exactly what we did, it was massive! The kitchen was fantastic with everything you need to cook a meal. There was even a whole bunch of chutneys, jams, fresh herbs and wine left for us as a welcome package, awesome! Sally is a great host and leaves you to your own devices or provides help when required, would definitely recommend to any group!
