“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 Birthday Treat We had the absolute great visit to Camphill Cottage last week and boy did we luck out. Along with her incredibly warm welcome, Janet had the firing roaring on arrival. My wife loved it - the perfect gift for her birthday. Highly recommend for a long weekend escape from Sydney.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It! What a beautiful part of the world! Thanks for having us Janet. Your cottage is gorgeous and so comfortable. The kids and dogs had a blast frolicking through the paddocks and feeding the horses. So special for us city folk to have horses over the back fence that we could feed and pat. Very refreshing having a pet friendly house that was actually lovely to stay in. Was great being so close to Rylstone so we could eat out as well as having great facilities to cook at home. We will definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing place We loved Camphill cottage. Janet was a fantastic host and was so helpful telling us places to go see and eat while we were there. ( and rescuing our dog who escaped while we were out at the wineries). We loved the fire, the view, the peace and quiet. The house was just lovely and we did not want to leave. We will be back again in summer to try the canoeing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful winter getaway! We had a lovely time at the Camphill Cottage with our dog. Although the property is not fully fenced, there is an enclosed veranda that is separate from the rest of the house, ideal for the dog to stay during the day. The owner, Janet was very thoughtful and left various items such as fresh eggs, milk, condiments, etc. in the kitchen for us to use during our stay. The bathroom tiles were also heated and there is a slow combustion heater which is a plus during the cold winter months! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely think of returning again in the future. A great winter escape
