My place is close to Armidale - 37kms and Guyra <1km on the New England Tablelands. Access is via the New England Highway which is an excellent alternative route to the Pacific Highway from Sydney to Brisbane.
The Mother of Ducks Lagoon - an extinct volcanic shallow crater lake is nearby for walks and bird watching.
New-England/Guy Fawkes River, Cathedral Rock and Oxley Wild Rivers National Parks are within driving distance.
You’ll love my place because of the night sky, usually excellent sunsets, clean air, rain water, the extensive rural views, proximity to Guyra with its many historic buildings, easily accessible main street and friendly shop owners. The cabin is rustic on the outside but inside it is very comfortable with a separate lounge area and separate entry/study nook. The cabin has a very good queen bed with high quality linen provided. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
Guests are welcome to access the extensive gardens of the heritage listed main house and the lands near the cabin.
If guests require any information about the Guyra area, I am happy to assist. There are plenty of natural attractions nearby. Fossicking for quartz and gems is available at the village of Tingha. Trout fishing is available nearby in the trout fishing season. And bicycles can be hired locally. Or just enjoy the garden and the local town and its people.
I am happy to socialise but only if guests would like to do so.
It can snow during winter. Guyra at 1330 meters above sea level is the highest town in the New England Tablelands. Even in summer the weather can turn cool to cold. It is rarely hot and humid providing a summer contrast to the nearby coastal areas. So be prepared. Look at weather forecasts. Autumn is particularly beautiful as the leaves of deciduous trees change to reds, yellows, bronze and brown. Spring is also great with many bulbs and roses and cottage garden plants in flower.
Guyra is a small town of 1950 people. It has a golf course, heated swimming pool and an exercise track. It has a small hospital and 3 local doctors.
