ONE 1 bedroom.

1 queen bed

2 single bunks

1 single bed in the lounge room if you really needed an extra.

This one bedroom is L shaped.

There is a queen sized bed, with built-in bunks in the same room around the corner.

It doesn't suit everyone but there is also a shearers bed in the lounge room if you really need a fifth person staying.

This arrangement has suited many a family with small kids.

This often suits a family with older kids.

This sometimes suits a group of adults that say have shared a tent before and laugh chat & giggle themselves into a champagne induced sleep.

We regret that we cannot accept any dogs.

We adjoin a sheep farm with sheep and lambs coming right up to the fence.

This fence is a farm fence and is not dog proof.

Moruya Country Retreat is a spacious and relaxing refuge from a busy lifestyle.

Situated on the crest of a hill it has farmland views in every direction.

A full renovation was completed in August 2012.

You would want to stay here if you like a unique location oozing with character and authentic pieces. There are oversized rooms, little in the way of neighbours and plenty of easy parking.

Concrete floors throughout, the bedroom & bathroom being polished, the lounge proudly showing the character of a century of work and painted in the kitchen/ dining.

Heating and cooling is available through energy efficient design and construction and air-conditioning units in the bedroom and kitchen/ dining.

There are three verandahs and a large covered 6m by 4m deck with table and chairs, and a gas BBQ.

The lounge-room is 6m by 7m and has a 6m cathedral ceiling with exposed beams.

The TV is a full HD LCD/LED with Blue-Ray disc player. A cross-section of DVDs is available, music, comedy, action, documentary, kids and romantic comedy. A selection of family games and travel books will tempt you to re-engage with your fellow travellers.

The massive eat in kitchen is 6m by 6m and has expansive views to the North, West and South. Bench seats in the corner and an iPod/ iPhone docking station to listen to your favourite tunes as you potter in the kitchen, spend a couple of days reading the weekend paper or just finishing off that book you have finally found time for. This is a room that feels like a destination in itself you may not feel the need to go anywhere else at all.

The kitchen has a large two door fridge for all your supplies and indulgences, a 900mm electric oven and a dishwasher. There is an under-bench front load washing machine and dryer in the kitchen so you don't need to take a load of dirty washing home with you. Large french doors open from the kitchen dining onto the oversized covered deck where you might choose to have a BBQ or just become one with the wildlife.

The bedroom has two large verandahs, one to the North-East and another oriented to the South. En-suite bathroom has a separate shower and timber surround bath. Building includes a second toilet.

Moruya, a country town but just 7km from uncrowded unspoilt beaches

Moruya Country Retreat is a heritage listed building 5km west of Moruya.

Moruya has a population of 8,600 people, with many impressive cafe's and eateries and great shopping.

Moruya is 20 mins south of Batemans Bay.

2hrs from Canberra.

4hrs from Sydney.

Regional Express Rex Airlines flies to and from Moruya airport daily.

Our cheese factory was first opened in 1892 before becoming a cordial factory, private music hall, pigeon house, man-shed and now a unique place to soak up the ambience of an old building and recharge your batteries.

We offer exclusive use of the building, privacy and plenty of space.

The building is one bedroom with a Queen bed, two deluxe built in bunks and a day bed in the lounge room if you need to squeeze in a fifth person. Feel free to bring a cot along for a little-un for no extra charge.

The property is in a quiet location, during busy holiday periods you will be completely removed from the crowds and traffic. Sometimes when we duck into town we are taken by surprise by the bustle and action that is so close yet out of sight.

15mins drive from a number of beaches, there is plenty to explore locally or take a day trip to one of the other gorgeous towns on the south coast.

All the usual outdoor sporting options are available such as river, lake or ocean fishing- plenty of room here to park your boat. Moruya has a surprisingly challenging golf course as does Narooma to the south and Batemans Bay Catalina to the north.

If you are caravanning why not take a couple of night off to spread your wings or take refuge from nasty weather, there is good access and easy parking for the largest of home away from homes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Place What a great location. So beautiful and yet so close to town!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning We had such a special Christmas holiday at this perfect country house. The property is a few minutes out of town, which is so lovely for relaxing but still close enough to wonderful quiet beaches and lots of water sports. We spent hours on the back deck looking at the mountains and sheep, playing petanque on the lawn and cooking up feasts in the kitchen. The house itself feels really spacious and the bathroom is such a treat. The photos of the house really dont do it justice, as its so much better. Thank you Bec and Bernie, you'll be seeing us again (hopefully soon).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful space! We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay and particularly loved the large, well-equipped kitchen and the fabulous shower. It was a good base from which to explore the area with Mogo, Narooma and Tilba Tilba all within easy reach. There was plenty of room and bunk beds in an alcove off the main bedroom as well as a single bed in the enormous lounge so would suit a family as well as couples. We spotted plenty of bird life from Black Cockatoos to Rosellas. Also lovely is Midnight Mist, the owners' friendly, food-loving pony. Mist is quite the character and would trot over to the verandah whenever we appeared in the hope we might have a spare carrot. Be aware mobile reception is poor/very patchy but that's minor in the scheme of things! It was great to be 'in the country' while still being close to restaurants and things to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great spot for a relaxing break We spent 9 nights at Moruya Country Retreat over over Christmas. The house is perfectly located if you are looking for a relaxing time, 10 minutes from the centre of Moruya, with easy access to the beaches and the bush for walking and biking (from the house). It is a great base for exploring the area, we travelled around a fair bit and enjoyed Narooma, Tuross Head (you must try the fish and chips at the Boat Shed), Central Tilba, Braidwood. It's a lovely property, great for two adults, plenty of room......you can literally spend hours sitting on the back deck taking in the views and and relaxing. The kitchen is well appointed, we cooked a full Christmas lunch with all the trimmings, large oven, dishwasher, plenty of utensils, pots pans etc. There is aircon in the kitchen and the bedroom and ceiling fans in the lounge, where there is a TV and DVD, with stacks of DVDs to choose from. Although Bernie, Rebecca and their children live onsite in their house quite close, you wouldn't know they were there!! However, if you do need anything they were more than helpful and made us feel very welcome, hope you are keeping on top of the bugs on the fig tree Bernie!! Thanks for a great stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From the moment I was in touch with Bernie and Bec I knew this was going to be a special holiday. They were communicative, friendly and welcoming from the beginning.We enjoyed a 3 night stay with all the comforts we would need and then some - like beautiful bedding, a scrumptious bath and gorgeous homemade bread for breakfast.The position of this special property is just picture perfect and you just know so much thought and love has gone into such a special place with so much history.It was like this place was just made for us.There is plenty of room for a family of 4 (as long as the kids are under 12), and if you're quite a close family/group and don't mind bunking down together, 5 of you could happily have a great holiday here.As a family of 3, we had more than enough room, it was perfect for us really, because our young son could have his own 'space' whilst still being close to us.I don't want to say too much more, because lots of the magical things we experienced were magic because they weren't expected or planned.It's definitely worth the drive from Sydney - such a great spot to set yourself up to some of those most beautiful spots on the South Coast.Thank you Moruya Country Retreat, we had a fantastic time!
