The Coach House

Set in rambling heritage-listed gardens at The Rift estate, The Coach House is an elegant, charming country retreat. Gourmet kitchen, expansive living, dining, and relaxed alfresco spaces; minutes to bushwalking trails, wineries and Bowral town.


The Rift is a grand old late-nineteenth century Italianate mansion set on one of the early Bowral estates. The Coach House accommodated the coachman, horses and a foundry, and retains many original character features that reflect its rich history.

Luxurious Country Retreat

A gourmet kitchen awaits, and an outdoor entertaining area with bbq and deck chairs on the verandah for relaxing. More energetic guests can play croquet and badminton on the lawn, or wander down to the field for a game of cricket or football. There are gardens full of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers to explore. Named for the geological rift at the base of Mount Gibraltar, there are bushwalking trails and scenic paths to explore nearby.

Our guests enjoy a truly luxurious stay, with amenities including:

• Free wifi.

• Flat screen TV.

• De'Longhi coffee machine and appliances.

• Fully equipped chef’s kitchen.

• Luxury Sheridan linen and towels.

• Arctic goose down duvets.

• Three open fireplaces, heaters in all bedrooms and underfloor heating in bathrooms.

• Claw-foot bathtubs.

• Laundry with washing machine, dryer and iron.

• High chair, infant cot, games and toys for children.

• Wheelchair access to property, bedroom and ensuite.

Tranquillity Awaits

The Coach House very private and separate from the main house. Guests are warmly welcomed on arrival, then left to relax in their own space.

The Neighbourhood

Bowral is lush, quaint and picturesque. Locals take pride in their homes and gardens, and the main street in town is full of delightful boutiques and cafes.

Getting Around

A Country Link train will transport you from Sydney or Canberra to nearby stations, only minutes from Bowral. Southern Highlands taxis can be booked for minor transits, as well as maxi taxis for a winery tour.

Other Things to Note

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sadly disappointed Sadly we had a terrible experience staying here. Not so much the accomodation but the re-emburstment of the bond. Excuses made, could not prove either of the so called issues had been fixed even when we asked to see receipts/photos. Even spoke to Stayz to try and mediate but The Rift just ignored the correspondence. They kept a large amount of our bond and feel others should be aware.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing attention to detail We had such an amazing weekend staying at The Coach House, for a friends wedding. The house is spacious and comfortable, with all details thought of and provided for such as heaters in all rooms, plenty of cutlery and crockery, hairdryers in each bathroom. Janet was a wonderful host, and ensured we had no issues. I highly recommend this property, and would definitely book it again!
