Description

If Fingal Farm is booked out when you want it, then have a look at Maccas farm that adjoins the property www.stayz.com.au/122891

You have the 150 acres to yourself and it is close to great attractions. The farm has friendly Boer goats, alpacas, miniature horses and small Irish Dexter cattle. There are 340 million year old fossils to collect. The terrain is mostly flat country and a creek flows 1km along one boundary. Take nature walks and see the wildlife - especially birds, wallabies, & goannas.

The house is a small four bedroom cottage with a large covered veranda. It has a main bathroom with bath/shower/toilet, separate toilet and also an ensuite in the main bedroom. There is a well equipped kitchen- gas cooktop and oven, dishwasher and coffee machine. The lounge room has a comfy leather lounge, is reverse cycled air conditioned and there is a wood fire. There are polished floorboards and ceiling fans throughout. Two bedrooms have Queen beds, another has two single beds and the fourth bedroom has bunks and a king single. There is also a trundle with mattresses to give flexibility in the sleeping arrangements. The house is surrounded by a nice garden in the two acre house paddock. The house has internet broadband.

You will find books & magazines to read, two TVs and DVD/VCR, Xbox, Wii (some games but bring your own) , gas and wood BBQs and a phone for local calls.
There is a table-tennis table, cricket gear, swing set and a trampoline.

Pets are very welcome but normally must stay out of the house. The "house paddock" is well fenced to keep most dogs in and the large undercover veranda will protect them in bad weather.

Our insurance company has advised that we cannot be insured if you want to ride trail bikes, so sorry but these are not allowed. There are fire trails nearby if the bikes are registered.

It is located about 2.5 hours drive north of northern Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. From Sydney follow the F3 freeway north to Bulahdelah. The farm is only 10 mins drive from the town of Bulahdelah and only 5 mins from the Pacific Highway.

Location

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet location, very well appointed We were impressed by the amount of space (inside and out) and the fit out of the house. Our two young boys always had plenty to do, even when it was drizzling outside. Fossil collecting, feeding animals, trampolining, helping collect firewood. A great stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Place To Write Music Me and two friends hired out fingal farm for a getaway to write some music. We had an absolute blast! Fantastic prices, and it has the best selection of books, movies, activities, kitchen supplies etc which makes it feel like you are being welcomed into someones home. I think this will be our new annual band getaway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second time just as good if not better This is the second time our family has stayed at Fingal Farm and if anything it was even better. Everything works, is clean, maintained to a high standard and clearly the owners have thought of visitor comforts and needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect place to connect We have stayed here many times. The family looks forward to our stay at 'The Farm'. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. It was lovely to meet new friends...The horses. The children like feeding all the animals and appreciated the wifi to submit their uni assignments. Great place to stay. See you next year :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect place to take a family Fingal Farm was fantastic! There was so much to see and do. Mining for fossils was really something special! The place is incredibly well-equipped, which made for a hassle-free stay that felt like home. We honestly could've spent weeks there.
