Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable - amazing views Our stay was peaceful and relaxing with the only negative being the barking of the dogs. The Cubby House was very clean and comfortable and very private. Enjoyed the kitchen. Views are mesmerising! Good beds, plenty of warm bedclothes. Generous supplies of tea, coffee, eggs etc. Beautiful property - plenty of walks, all with amazing views. Pleasant hostess. We saw the eagles each day, and lots of birdlife, including the jenny wrens nest building. Enjoyed the goats and chickens. Good value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice quiet stay Extremely well equipped accommodation set in an ideal location for a few days off from the outside world. Great views and the Host, Margaret, was very hospitable and not intrusive which is something that I worry about when staying at this style of accommodation. The stay has given our youngest child an appreciation of the way things work and recently commented that she hoped Margaret was getting the rain we were experiencing at home. With 2 of the 4 of us unwell when we arrived we didn't get to explore the outer reaches of the property but can see there is plenty to explore and we'll be having a look on our next trip!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace, serenity and country hospitality The Cubbyhouse Farmstay is exactly what our family needed. After a very easy drive from Sydney we arrive down a country laneway to one of the most picturesque properties you can imagine. Honestly the views over the Capertee Valley were simply sensational. Margaret our host was there to greet us and show us around the very well equipped farm home that was to be ours. There was an abundance of animals including babies to satisfy our 5, 6 and 10 year old children and hubby was thrilled with the chairs on the wrap around verandah and the prepared log fire. The children were delighted to find a box of games and I chose a book from the shelf. The beds and linen were clean and comfortable and I think I had the best night sleep ever. Morning was simply a delight, the mist coming up through the valley gave us some amazing photographs and the free-range eggs Margaret's chickens provided eggs that made for a delightful breakfast. Then there were the animals, we had ducks and ducklings, chickens and a very handsome rooster, sheep and lambs, plenty of goats, cows, a lone horse and the most amazing native birds as far as the eye could see. We took a walk with Margaret around the farm and 100 images later, I have memories that will last a lifetime. We will definitely come back again, many times, and highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking for peace, serenity and country hospitality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely stay Thank you for having us! It was a lovely stay. The house is a little dated, but that is part of the charm and it's clean and comfortable. I would absolutely recommend The Cubby House to the any family or couple looking for a low key weekend on a beautiful property. You can walk for hours on the property, passing sheep, cows and kangaroos. The views are incredible and the fire place warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great location and lovely views Directions from Margaret were great and she was a good host. Fire was efficient and heated the house quickly. We were only there for a night but had a nice walk across the paddocks before we left. Needs a bit of work tidying yard and throwing out cracked china. It was a great experience though to get back onto a farm.
