“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 Best place to stay in the area What an amazing place to get away from it all. Lots of space and sleeping areas, kid and dog friendly. Lovely views of the district and some friendly horses next door. The house has everything you need in it, BBQ, underfloor heating in bathroom, fire place, reverse cycle aircon/heating. You only need to bring your self and your friends and family. Janet the host is incredibly hospitable and really cares for the property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing place The minute we arrived Janet greeted us with a smile and showed us in. The cottage was very clean and very comfortable. My 2 teenager boys and my 2 dogs quickly made themselves at home in this beautiful country style cottage. The kids loved the horses that came to greet them which only enhanced our stay. The cottage was warm and the fire place was great. The kitchen was well stocked with basics and all the equipment, crockery and utensils was so clean. The beds are so comfortable it was hard to get out of bed ! The view from the cottage was great and we all felt relaxed the minute we arrived. I highly recommend staying here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful rustic cottage Lovely spacious rustic cottage with beautiful vistas to the surrounding hills & horse paddocks. The decor is charmingly eclectic, the beds super comfortable , kitchen , pantry & fridge incredibly well stocked. Love the wood fire heater! We felt miles away from civilisation yet close to Rylstone, Mudgee, wineries and the national park. Janet is amazingly hospitable & an great source of information on what's to do in the local area. Our stay felt like we were visiting an old friend.

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.
