Additional Accommodation at Broughton Ridge: The Cottage
We are delighted to advise guests that tucked away privately within the grounds of the main property there is a lovely, cosy 1 bedroom fully self-contained cottage which sleeps 2 people very comfortably. This can be rented for a very reasonable additional cost either separately or as part of your booking from the main house.
Please note that the cottage may be separately occupied during your stay at the main house. However, please be assured that as the cottage is located away from the main house, with its own entrance and access road, guests in the main house have complete privacy at all times. Guests staying in the main house will enjoy exclusive use of the facilities at the main house such as pool, spa and firepit. If cottage is booked along with the main house, the price per night for additional 2 people is $200.
Things to do in the area
Head down to beautiful Seven Mile Beach National Park, Gerroa, which is only a 20 minute drive from Broughton Ridge. Extending from Shoalhaven Heads east of Nowra, to Gerroa in the north, Seven Mile Beach National Park is a small coastal park packed with options for everyone. Head to the "Berry Beach" picnic area at the end of Beach Road for a game of beach cricket and a BBQ (gas BBQs and toilets locatedin the picnic ground). Wander up to the lookout and take in the stunning ocean views and golden sandy beach stretching into the distance.
Experience the unique coastal environment on the Sand Track. Walk through the forest, admiring the plants and local wildlife, then kick off your shoes and feel the sand between your toes as you stroll back along the beach.
Pack a gourmet picnic and spend a lazy afternoon under the shade of a nearby tree at secluded spots like the Gerroa picnic area. Then get away from it all and enjoy a long walk on the beach, with only the crashing waves to disturb the peace.
Pop down to Berry, an historic village only 10 minutes down the mountain, and visit the award-winning Treat Factory (jams, preserves, chocolates, cake baking equipment), Pompodours Chocolate House Berry, South Coast Providores (preserves, Locavore Friday, balsamic vinegars and oils), The Berry Teashop (tea, teacups, tea cosies, everything to do with tea, plus a cafe for tea and scones).
Berry also has some terrific restaurants and cafes:South on Albany, Berry Woodfired Sourdough Bakery Cafe, Mezzadella's Woodfired Pizzas, Savanna Cafe, Delicious Cafe, Berry Thai, The Berry Hotel and the Great Southern Hotel.
Head in the opposite direction for about 20 mins to reach Kangaroo Valley shops and cafes. Try Cafe Bella, the Kangaroo Valley Friendly Inn, Bistro One46, Jing Jo Cafe and Restaurant, the Kangaroo Valley Fudge House and Ice Creamery. While there you could hire a canoe from Kangaroo Valley Kayaks or take a guided or self-guided kayak or canoe trip with Kangaroo Valley Safaris. If you are keen on horses, you could organise a horse ride with the Man From Kangaroo Valley Trail Ride.
Bush Walkers: Drawing Room Rocks (4km return, grade 4-5, 2 hrs walk). At the top of Woodhill Mountain, turn north into Brogers Creek Road. Drive along this road for 0.2km. Turn right at mail box (this is a public road) and park at sign marked Barren Grounds Nature Reserve. Walk on the road for a short distance to the first grid. Do not pass through the gateway as it marks off private property. Look for the little sign on the fence which states to Barren Grounds with an arrow pointing to the right. Now follow an old single land walking track leading up to the ridge. It becomes steep in places but is good walking. After a while you walk to the left of the ridge under a spectacular sandstone formation. There is a zig-zag half way up which is easy to see. The upper section of the track is overgrown in paces while still being fairly easy to follow to the top of the ridge. Once there, the Drawing Room is easy to identify as there are rocks that resemble tables and chairs. (Please do not sit on the chair overhanging the cliff and note that there is no further access into Barren Grounds Nature Reserve from here). From Drawing Room Rocks you are rewarded with one of the best coastal views Australia has to offer. Look down on Gerroa, Seven Mile Beach National Park, Nowra, Berry, the Shoalhaven River, the ocean and Kangaroo Valley.
Birdwatching: Barren Grounds Nature Reserve provides important habitat protection for endangered birds such as the ground parrot.
Take a Foodscape Tour to visit local farmers and producers.
