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.

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. 3 bedrooms all new beds 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.

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 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. Although The Rockies is 2km from farm sheds so is very quiet.

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. The house has heating and air conditioning. We are happy to share our pool if you are here in hot weather.

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.
