In any season our home provides an amazing escape into the heart of rural New South Wales less than a 3 hour drive from Sydney.

The property runs from the Bucketts Mountain range right down to the Barrington River - a hive of activity for water sports - kayakers, canoists, kids and big kids racing on inner tubes, and fishing lovers all use the river especially during the summer. The walk to the river from the house is about 500m.

Your kids will also spend a lot of time in the fully fenced salt water in ground pool - you can watch them as you laze in the sun.

Sit on our verandah, listen to the birds and enjoy the spectacular backdrop of the famous Bucketts Mountain Range. You are not too far from civilisation - just 15 minutes by car takes you into historic Gloucester with cafès, pubs, supermarkets, shops, tennis courts and parks.

We love to relax up there and we love the time away from our phones and computers - but we do have wifi and a large screen tv with foxtel just in case you need to keep in touch, want to know what’s going on in the world or just want to check the sports scores.

We have a number of activities on and off site in case you do want to keep busy:

• canoe

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just beautiful! What a beautiful place to escape the city! The house is clean and well equipped and the pool was a fantastic bonus! We all enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave! The mountains as the backdrop and the cattle as your only other company, it is truly a place to relax and unwind. The location is great. Far from any hustle and bustle but only a short drive away from a good coffee and a woolies for any necessities. There is much to explore in the area but we were happy to spend the hot days by the pool. The property is on a working cattle farm and the shed is near the house but Paul made sure we got the privacy we wanted. Thankyou. And it was a pleasure dealing with Jenny from start til the end which made it all the more stress free so thank you also. We would have no hesitation in recommending this place and look forward to going back soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous property! We had an amazing stay at this property. The house was extremely well stocked and comfortable with a lovely outlook over the surrounding gorgeous scenery. The swimming pool was a great asset which we made full use of in a lovely setting. The owners left lots of information regarding the surrounding towns, things to do and places to eat which made everything easy. We would definitely recommend this property for a great holiday and hope to return there again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fantastic Once again we have had the most amazing annual family get away. Barrington River House is perfect in every way, it accommodates for everyone my 10 year old nephew love the pools, walking down to the river and dragging us up the mountain so he can ride his bike down, my parents in their 70's also love relaxing taking in the view and the ease of getting around in the level home. We always manage to cook up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen and love a wine at sunset, the views are stunning. Thanks for another wonderful holiday Jenny, we will be back next year.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Our stay at Barrington River Houser The location of the Property is excellent and the House is very nicely done & comfortable. The only negative we had was that they didn't give us enough towels for 5 Adults which we had booked for (only 4 left) and the house hadn't been vacuumed from the previous occupants.
