"Few bed & breakfast places offer a self-contained experience. Even fewer offer a throughly original feel. Southdown does both and virtually demands that you dream a little. No other place we have stayed at has quite offered the intrigue of the Southdown Stable"

Sydney Morning Herald review:

"Few accommodation places offer 4 uniquely decorated historic self-contained accommodation cottages. They gives you access to this Southern Highlands iconic 6 acre garden and yet you are just 3 minutes from the many cafes & restaurants and 10 minutes from the many vineyards, antique shops, surrounding villages and National parks."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful and relaxing stay! We spent 4 nights at Southdown Stable in July 2016 and it was a lovely stay. The Stables are beautifully and authentically decorated and we loved finding new bits of history in each room. The grounds were spectacular, even in the dead of winter, and our 2 year old particularly loved exploring each garden and searching out and feeding the chickens were a daily treat. The Stable as well serviced and catered for everything we needed as well as generous breakfast provided for the first 2 days. We will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relax country comfort Beautiful property and cottage. We stayed in the 2 bedrooms Stable. Comfortable beautiful relaxing location. As it is Summer, we did not used the fireplace. But would love to come back for that. I can imagine just sitting there all weekend listening to music and read. Would love to come back again. Love the little town too. Easy and close to town for food, grocery...etc. Nice location. Stayed in Jan 2016.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful place! 4 of us and a baby stayed at the SOUTHDOWN STABLE. It was a beautiful place. The photos online do not do it justice! The garden on the premise was also devine! Very convenient location close to the shops.
