Between sandstone bluffs, with a permanent creek winding around the house, cows in the paddocks, bird calls in abundance, grapevines,and orchard, this property is a nature lovers paradise. Just relax on the wrap around verandah or entertaining deck to enjoy the aura and views. On a clear night the stars are amazing, you can spot the falling stars and satellites whilst enjoying the warmth of the safely contained outdoor fire.

The house is fully furnished, cooled with air conditioning in summer, and heated in winter with a wonderful wood fire. The kitchen has been renovated and is ready for guests to cook up a feast. Bedrooms are comfortable, bathrooms clean and every effort will be made to help guests enjoy their stay. Perfect for small gatherings, the quiet valley setting means parties and large gatherings will need prior approval from the owners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, peaceful and family friendly property We stayed at Tilbatilla with our 2 year old and both sets of grand parents. We all had a wonderful stay. The owners Toni and Michael were warm and welcoming and showed us around. The house is beautiful, spacious, very clean and modern and has wonderful country views. The beds are comfortable. The property is also secluded and very private. My 2 year old son had so much collecting the eggs from the chicken, hearing the rooster crow, looking at the cows and hearing them moo and patting the horses. The property is ideal for people with kids. I cannot recommend it more highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to get away What a lovely stay we had at Tilbatilla. The hosts Toni and Michael were friendly, hospitable and really made us feel welcome. The house was spacious, clean and modern, and the wood fire was super cozy. Beds were really comfy including the doonas, which made sleeping in all the more enjoyable. We collected fresh eggs from the chooks each morning, fed the chooks during the day and enjoyed picking fruit from the trees in the nearby orchard. Our two miniature poodles loved the place too, including racing around the paddocks. The huge fire pit was great and a focal point in the evenings, where we baked potatoes and damper. It was a beautiful place to relax and unwind. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful and relaxing property We were six 30 year old friends who wished to get out of Sydney for a relaxing time over the New Year period and we were lucky enough to find Tilbatilla! We knew we were in for a special time as we drive through the gate and up the tree-lined gravel driveway to the house. There we were greeted by our lovely hosts Toni and Michael and we soon settled in and took in the afternoon sun as it set across the valley. The house is spacious, clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed cooking up a storm in the modern and well-supplied kitchen. The front porch has a great view out across the paddocks dotted with cows and the back porch accommodates al fresco dining. The back garden has a fire pit which we utilised on New Years Eve. Our days were spent taking in the sunsets on the porch, visiting the nearby cellar doors, going for leisurely walks along the valley and gathering around the dining table for some hotly contested sessions of board and card games. Tilbatilla is an ideal place to 'get away from it all' without being too far off the beaten track. I highly recommend the property.
