“Camphill Cottage” 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, antique shops and old pubs of historic Rylstone, it is the ideal option for those seeking peace, privacy, space and authenticity.

This charming, rustic cottage offers two queen size bedrooms and a large mezzanine loft with two single beds sleeping a total of six. 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.

The cottage 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 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.

The 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 Beautiful, authentic country cottage. Camphill Cottage is a wonderful place to stay if you want to experience a slice of true Australian countryside. The cottage is about 5 mins drive out of Rylstone, and is set amongst rolling fields dotted with cows and horses. A couple of the horses are super friendly and will drop by to munch on some carrots if you have any to spare. The cottage is spacious and is equipped with everything you need, particularly in the kitchen. The beds are cosy and comfortable, and it's wonderful to go to sleep to the sounds of the country. Janet was a warm and welcome host and helps you get settled upon arrival, but then respectfully keeps her distance - unless you need her, when she's very responsive. Our family loved spending the weekend and will be back. Thanks Janet!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Complete and friendly property My husband, 2 dogs and I had a relaxing and private weekend. Janet met us when we arrived and spent an appropriate amount of time showing us where everything was. She had included condiments and some basics to make our evening arrival easier - she pointed out features i.e. the moon rising over the hill to make our stay memorable. Air con was perfect and facilities just what we needed. We will stay there again. Thank you Janet for sharing your property with us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cottage and convenient location I booked the cottage through Stayz to accomodate my parents and their friends for my wedding week end which happened on the farm next door. The cottage is clean, well decorated, with views on the paddocks, horses and nearby hills. It has a nice kitchen and good size bathroom, the two bedrooms downstairs have plenty of space. Communication with the owner prior to the date has been great, i also met Janet in person on the day my parents arrived, she is a really friendly person and she showed me around the property. It's a good location if you want to enjoy the area, not too far from Mudgee, with beautiful landscapes. The cottage has two bedrooms and the attic has two beds as well which is great for family and friends travelling together. I hope you enjoy the place as much as my family did

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Camphill Cottage The cottage was very spacious and we experienced a very relaxing stay. The open space and beautiful view made the stay very relaxing, while still easy driving to Rylstone and Mudgee. The cottage was well equipped and this made it a real home away from home.
