Please see the PRICING tables below.

Dear guests also please note that our pricing includes inclusions such as a games room and pool, wifi and foxtel not offered by most genuine rural properties at this price range.

The best of both worlds nestled between the Southern Highlands and Southern Tablelands, 2 EASY HOURS FROM SYDNEY CBD in a tranquil pastoral setting with lovely views to the distance.

ENTERTAINERS DELIGHT with adjacent indoor/outdoor games room

and screened gazebo.

Our guest cottage can accommodate up to 10 people in beds plus additional children in port-a-cots and on floor mattresses. The cottage is a modern, clean, comfortable and well appointed home away from home with 3 bedrooms, open plan lounge/ dining/ kitchen, 2 bathrooms and lots of outdoor areas to chill or play.

Once you arrive you will feel far from urban life.

Bring your bikes and ramble along the quiet roads or walk, play tennis or indoor/outdoor games and just chilling out with friends and family let you recharge or get busy with farm activities:

Feed the chickens, enjoy their eggs and taste real free range. Visit the ducks and geese.

Interact with the friendly sheep, cows and alpacas, they all have personalities

The pool refreshes on a hot day after a bbq and outdoor fun while winter fires warm and welcome in the cooler months either indoors or while you watch the stars by the campfire.

The games room also has equipment for outdoor activities, and the plasma TV with DVD and full foxtel round out the impossibility of being bored.

FUNCTIONS and CLEBRATIONS WELCOME -please ask as the games/alfresco area is an all purpose entertaining area that is all white and can be decorated and has hosted many guests and their invited friends and family.

Grab a drink and a chair and chill in the circular garden with elevated view to the distant blue ranges. Bird life abounds.

Sit around the bon fire on a crisp night, domed by millions of stars, or get busy with the billy tea and camp oven for scones and damper under the open sky settler's style.

The sunrises and sunsets are often breathtaking as the elevated house block allows you to take in the vast sky while you listen to the frog and bird orchestra.

The Olive Grove with guest harvest in late April/May features complimentary olive curing to take home and the olive trees are on their way to producing an interesting blend of table olives. Sometimes we press for oil and it is for sale if in stock.

OLIVE TREES of various sizes and varieties are FOR SALE and are an ideal fruiting garden tree that can be shaped to size.

Walk the olive grove and take a seat on the hill around sunset with your favourite drink and a lovely view to the distant ranges.

A Little more about the region:

Stay in the same area, which was hand picked by Hannibal Macarthur, as prime grazing land back in the 1800's. Local farms in the area still carry large numbers of sheep and cattle .Read about how the little pocket of Big Hill got it's name and was settled.

Walk to the historic convict built sandstone church which still holds services and weddings with a non-denominational service every 4th Sunday of the month in a casual bush style where you can yarn with some locals over a cuppa afterwards.

We assist with information if the tourism bug bites, and it's not far to travel for:

Sporting events like cycle rallies

Festivals such as Brigadoon

Scenic lookouts

Historical attractions

Wineries and restaurants

Weekend markets and activities proliferate the calendar year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Holiday Very happy with the stay at Eco-Olive farm. The accommodation was fantastic, it had every thing and more than what we needed. Monica was a great host, she took us around the farm. Kids had great fun feeding animals. Would recommend to every one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Country Retreat Our family of ten stayed for two nights and it we would have loved to have stayed longer. The property was clean and tidy and had the most homely cozy feel you could imagine. There was a lovely fireplace which was well stocked with pre-chopped firewood. In addition the kitchen was well-stocked with all the cooking equipment / utensils you will need. Monica was the most gracious host. She allowed our family complete privacy but was available on call whenever we needed anything. Monica took our whole family to meet her farm animals , including cows, sheep, alpacas and ducks. Monica also started the campfire for us so we could cook dinner under the stars. The property is spacious and has magnificent views of the surrounding farmland. I recommend EcoOlive Farmstay for everyone - whether it's a huge family holiday or a romantic retreat to get away from it all. What I loved was it is only 2 1/2 hours from Sydney but you feel like you are in another world far far away from the city. Monica is a knowledgable and warm host so book now. I know my review sounds like an advertisement but it was an amazing holiday. Thanks Monica - Andrew Wong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Music Retreat Six of us stayed for band retreat and could not have done better. The double garage/ playroom was perfect, allowing us to set instruments, amps, PA and foldbacks. Monica, our host, even joined us for vocal backup. The house was perfect for us and the surrounding countryside wonderfully relaxing. It is also easy to see why it has received highly favourable reviews from family groups friends looking for a rural retreat within easy driving distance of Sydney. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family holiday We had a terrific 3 nights. Monica was incredibly helpful, always friendly and went out of her way to help. Our 5 kids (aged 12 to 4) all had a great time feeding chickens, ducks, sheep, cows and the favourite - alpacas. Nights were by the fire, days were in the bright sun. The kids loved the trampoline, swings and mud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Farmstay! We have just returned from staying at Eco Olive and what a great experience it was. Monica, the host and owner was more than welcoming and providing everything we needed for a very relaxing long weekend away. Like other reviewers, this has to be one of the cleanest houses I have stayed in ever. Monica has thought of all the amentities for kids and adults alike. The kids loved jumping on the ute to feed the animals and just as much fun in the well equipped pool in the afternoon. Not sure who got the best use out of the games room, the adults or kids and this had everything you could ever want. Would highly recommend this farmstay property and we'll sure be back.
