Stay a night or a week you wont find a better place to unwind. Kirkham Manor invites you to relax and do 'nothing, or do 'everything' !

Offering accommodation for 2-10 people in a park-like setting. Guests have the use of a fully self-contained 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom 'home away from home' or the delightful self-contained guest suite with a queen sized bed and en-suite.

Both guest areas are attractively furnished with your comfort and relaxation the main priority......... Ask about the special rate for children; reduced rates for seniors or enqire about the great weekly rates.

The features of Kirkham Manor are many and include secure keyed entry and all linen and towelling (for both shower and pool) is provided. The guest house has a stylishly comfortable lounge and dining area; large flat screen TV, extensive DVD library, great reading and CDs; fully equipped kitchen to make life easy, with dishwasher, gas stove top, electric oven, microwave, full size refrigerator, quality utensils and tableware - everything you need to cook your own meals. Should you decide to eat in - you can bring what you need or shop in Moss Vale, just 5 minutes away.

A breakfast 'feast' is provided for you including eggs, bacon, sausages, tomatoes, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, bread, tea, coffee and juice. All local produce and 'deli' items. You only need to do is shop for your other meals.

The guest house has 2 deluxe queen sized beds, 2 comfy single beds, a very comfortable queen sofabed in the lounge area and 3 portable single beds. The guest suite has a luxurious queen bed. Two of the bedrooms are easily able to take the extra portable beds - a bonus when you have a family get together and would like everyone to stay in the same accommodation. There is also a portacot and highchair.

Relax by the indoor heated pool and spa, designed for your year round enjoyment. Run around on the Edwardian gravel tennis court for a bit of ‘hit and giggle’ and then unwind in the covered barbecue area, sitting by the open fire in winter, while enjoying al fresco dining. Dining at night outdoors is an experience - on a clear night the stars are breathtaking.

Kirkham Manor prides itself on continually updating and upgrading the facilities. People return again and again, commenting on their return that 'there is something new' to enjoy - whether it be the refurbished pool area or new lounge and dining furniture. We know you will love staying and will become part of our 'Kirkham' family.

Enjoy a glass of wine as you sit by the lake, take in the wonderful rural views and RELAX!

Kirkham Manor has been featured in many home decorating publications, since opening in January 2007, including Country Home Ideas, Country at Home and Kitchen & Bathroom Style magazines. Listed as a State Finalist in the 2008 and 2009 Self Contained Accommodation Awards, Kirkham Manor won the National Award in the Self Contained Accommodation category for 2010.

Visit and see why !

Relax in this centrally located award winning country location

The village of Sutton Forest, renowned for its rural lifestyle, is an easy 1.5 hours pleasant drive from Sydney or Canberra and 45 minutes from the coast and Wollongong.

Once you have settled into Sutton Forest (Phar Lap country), you can explore the nearby wineries and historic towns of Exeter, Bundanoon, Moss Vale, Robertson ('Babe' country), Berrima and Bowral, with their beautiful buildings, fashion boutiques, quirky homeware stores, antique shops, art galleries and gift stores. The Morton National Park is just 10 minutes away, with views that will amaze you and, of course, you have to visit the Glow Worm Caves.

With the many pubs, sports clubs, service clubs, cafes and restaurants in such close proximity you can eat out as much as you like, or do some local shopping and cook in your own kitchen.

Wonderful seasonal retreat

The floral magic of the Southern Highlands comes alive when you stay at Kirkham Manor - spring has rhododendrons, tulips, daffodils and jonquils on show; summer brings the perfume of roses and the splendour of lilies and hydrangeas; autumn sees the changing of the colours from the beautfiful greens to wonderful autumn hues and winter brings the stark contrasts of deciduous trees and delightful winter flowering plants - a treat at any time of the year.

As you wander through the garden listen to and watch the endless variety of bird life that call our garden home.

During the day take advantage of the Southern Highlands wine trail or have a round of golf at one of the many beautiful highland golf courses, then return home to Sutton Forest and enjoy your country home away from home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful house, wonderful owner I booked this house for a girls weekend away and was absolutely blown away at the customer service provided by Susan, the owner. The property is marvellous and everybody involved couldn't stop raving about the place. Would definitely hire this house again in future if there was another event or occasion with a large group involved! 10/10.
