Description

Built in the late 1800's from bricks made of the clay bed on which she stands, Auntie Eileen's is a simple but elegant old-style farmhouse. Set on an acre and a half, she is surrounded by an ever evolving Australian cottage garden and has a gentle farmyard atmosphere complete with resident farm animals. Situated on the eastern side of the valley floor, Auntie Eileen's is an easy 15 minute stroll from the restaurants, cafes and shops of Kangaroo Valley village.

Auntie Eileen's is built on sandstone piers and has double brick walls, which help keep her cool in summer and cosy in winter. The north-facing lacework verandah has clear views to the Upper River escarpment and wraps around the house to the shade of the old plum, quince and pear orchard and beyond to the native plant hedge. It is here you can dine out, have a good belly laugh at the antics of the waddling duck quintet or just relax to the sight and sound of the local Australian native birds.

In the paddock live Olivia the pig and her buddies P1 and P2 ; grazing, having a nap or keeping cool in their mud bath. In a separate paddock you will find the goats Pip, Boots and Ursula along with Maggie and Mary the sheep. You can also take your pick from our small covered veggie patch or collect eggs from the near by chook house.

Inside, the house itself, is decorated in a funky eclectic mix of approachable antiques and collectables to create an old world romance which changes tempo from room to room.

Relaxed Comfort for Families or Couples

There are three bedrooms which can comfortably sleep a family of six or up to five adults. The front bedroom has a queen-size bed and a fresh French Provincial feel. The second bedroom has a wood frame country double bed and offers a sense of cosiness. The third bedroom has a set of bunk beds and leads to a small adjoining playroom which is great for the kids but could also be used as a hideaway nook to do the crossword. All rooms have views to the garden.

The cosy lounge room has a slow combustion wood fire. Here, you can snuggle up with a good book, play board games, or watch a DVD, all of which are available from the book shelf. Bake to your heart's content or whip up a fantastic meal together in the country style kitchen and serve it in the warm glow of the separate dining room or in the bright breakfast room away from the preparation mess.

And when it's time, relax in Auntie's big claw-foot bath.

Auntie Eileen's is about the simplicity of country living. The comfy house in which to relax, the fun of watching farm animals, the joy of being with family and friends. It's arriving to a basket of freshly picked produce, flowers and eggs when available and delighting in a freshly baked cake for morning tea.

Like anyone of her grand age, Auntie Eileen's is a little quirky with a character all her own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well preserved farmhouse and beautiful grounds My husband regrets not owning a farm - so farm-stay was ideal for him - sitting on the verhandah was peaceful, farm produce was cooked and eaten and little talks with the animals special. Special for me were the vases of fresh flowers and the slow combustion fire albeit we didn't need to light it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Aunty Eileen's The places was homely, spacious and perfect for our family stay. My daughter loved the access to the animals, the space and the toys. We would stay again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no further! Our family with 2 toddlers had the most incredible stay. Everything was perfect - a character filled cottage, friendly animals that delighted the children, delicious freshly baked sponge, abundant fresh farm produce (you can't beat freshly squeezed juice in the morning), all topped off with Helen and John's generous hospitality. We cherished the opportunity to slow down, relax and unwind, and we are already planning our next visit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect getaway We had a wonderful time here. The house is absolutely beautiful, with everything you could possibly need. The location was ideal - right in the heart of the valley. The farm animals gave us city folk a great insight into a working farm without being too overwhelming. It was indeed just like my own Aunty's house from my childhood. The toyroom, puzzles, books, magazines and DVDs were popular with everyone in the family and the hosts were lovely. You will not be disappointed staying here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for families with young children We stayed in this warm and cosy cottage with our extended family including 3 young children who delighted in the animals and Farmer John who with his infinite patience led the children around the animals at feeding time. The cottage has a north facing verandah which was delightful on a cool winter's day with a simple plate bbq and some of the many childrens' toys. No need to bring toys for the children as the playroom has an amazing array including dress-ups!! Helen couldn't have been more helpful and her sponge cake was as delicious as everyone says. The beds are exceptionally comfortable with electric blankets and flannelette sheets for winter. I loved the flowers in all the rooms and the fresh produce left there for us. The kitchen is particularly well equipped as is the whole cottage. We will come again!
