Conveniently located on Sydney's north west doorstep in the "lowlands" region of the upper Hawkesbury Valley - a little pocket of paradise only 4 minutes drive from Windsor and just over a 1 hour drive from the city centre.

The surrounding area is a flat rural picturesque patchwork of citrus orchards, small agricultural farms, turf farms, equestrian stud farms and polo fields.

Cornwallis House is a grand and charming two storey Queenslander style house blending with its surroundings perfectly. The interior is contemporary and stylish, creating an atmosphere of elegant comfort and total relaxation.

This house provides guests with a level of comfort, space, privacy and relaxation unmatched in the area.



The surrounding uninterrupted 360 degree VIEWS that give the house its WOW factor You will be mesmerised from the minute you arrive till the minute you leave.

You'll feel like you're way out in the country, yet you're still so close to the city, and you don't have to spend hours to get there.

The superbly equipped gourmet kitchen including coffee machine, which is the focal point of the house and the place where everyone tends to gather. The kitchen and outdoor BBQ on the verandah is for people who like to cook. You won't need to bring anything extra with you it is completely fitted out with everything you're ever likely to need to cook up a storm.

Relax with a soak in the 6 person outdoor SPA which has prime position on a mezzanine deck facing the river and offers the best views in the Hawkesbury Sunset and stargazing from the spa on a clear night makes for a memorable stay. Sunrise is pretty spectacular for any early risers in your group too.

If you want to escape for a snooze, or a quiet read , there's no more tranquil place than in one of the 4 extra large family size hammocks on the upstairs wraparound verandah.

Wander through the orchard picking oranges straight from the trees in season May - Sep. We have a heavy duty juicer in the kitchen for you to use during your stay. You'll never taste orange juice as good as this.

Some of the other activities you can enjoy are : fishing from the riverbank, going for a walks down the quiet country lane, flying a kite, playing outdoor games, or lighting up the firepit and roasting marshmallows.

There are many great attractions in the area for you to explore including some outstanding cafes, breweries, bars and restaurants, plus lots of local historic buildings and a lively art scene.



Cornwallis House was designed with entertaining in mind. There are two levels of outdoor space, upstairs and downstairs, with multiple outdoor settings and places to relax and dine outdoors. It's perfect for small groups who like to stay in and cook for themselves, spending quality time together relaxing with a few drinks over long lazy meals.

We allow guests to invite extra family or friends to visit during their stay, however there are limits and venue hire fees may apply, depending on the numbers and your requirements. Please ask us about this when you enquire, and remember that honesty is the best policy.



On the days when the weather is not so good you'll find shelves of new paperback novels, stacks of magazines, over 200 DVDs to watch or CD's to listen to, a Wii games console with adult & childrens games, as well as a large variety of board games & card games to play, as well as a full size table tennis in the large multi purpose room downstairs.



When you're feeling active we have 8 adult and 2 childrens bikes with helmets for you to use. You can choose to go for a ride along the quiet country lanes exploring the Cornwallis "lowlands" area, or you could go for a relatively flat ride into town Windsor along a new bike path, where you'll find an ice cream shop, an old fashioned lolly shop plus lots of cafes, restaurants, pizzerias, pubs, and shops.


Our guests tell us how glorious it is not to hear their children say the dreaded 2 words..."I'm bored". There's always something to keep them happy and occupied. There is a small cubby house for younger children, acres of grounds and lawn for outdoor games such as volleyball, cricket, baseball, soccer, badminton, croquet and boules. We also have an orchard full of orange trees to pick the fruit from in season. In summer we have an inflatable water slide for the toddlers see image in the photo gallery and two "slip n slides". We also have loads of childrens DVDs and board games and toys for babies and younger children. There's loads of child and teenage friendly places and activities in the area.





Our proximity to the city means it is easily accessible for weekend stays. You can be at Cornwallis in a ONE HOUR DRIVE from just about anywhere in Sydney.

So, instead of checking out at 11:00 a.m., on Sunday mornings, as you would with most other accommodation properties, why not stretch your break further in the Hawkesbury by staying until late on your last night Sunday, OR, better still, have a bonus extra night and check out the Monday morning, at no extra cost.

subject to availability at the time. We call this our LAZY LATE CHECK OUT DEAL Stay 3/Pay 2 nights special offer. Not valid on public holiday long weekends or special event periods.



To enhance your stay we can arrange in house PAMPER TREATMENTS or a PRIVATE COOK/ CHEF to prepare a special meal for you. Please ask us about this.



We have many groups stay with us who are either getting married, or are attending a wedding, at one of the many fabulous local wedding venues.

We're often asked we will allow weddings on the property, and the answer is generally Yes, our guests are welcome to have their wedding at Cornwallis House. We're well set up for small country garden weddings on site. Maximum number is 100, and venue hire fees apply. Please contact the owners, Angelo and Alannah, for more information and a quotation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute Amazing Property & Owners!! Myself and a group of friends stayed at the Cornwallis house at New Years for 2 nights. I wish we could have stayed longer! The photos don't even do this place any justice, the view is amazing, the whole house is to die for, very clean, massive, beautiful house. The spa was so good and to get use of the tinny and bikes was great fun as well, oh and those comfortable hammocks!! To top it all off Alannah & Angelo pretty much stocked the fridge up for us. There was a carton of eggs, a whole thing of bacon, milk, juice, bread, bowl full of fruit, a box of chocolates and all the utensils, olive oil, paper towel, garbage bags, everything you could possibly need. We didn't even need to bring anything. Absolute top quality owners & top quality property! I might even consider getting married here one day, loved it. Would definitely stay again. Thanks so much!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just perfect My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Cornwallis House. The location, accommodation, and all other facilities came together so well on the day, it was beyond our expectations and it truly made our day more perfect then we could have imagined. Alannah and Angelo were extremely helpful in the lead up to and on the day of the wedding. I really cannot fault it and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending this location to others – I’ll be sure to visit again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing property! My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Cornwallis House a few weeks ago and it was absolutely beautiful. Alannah and Angelo were both so willing to go above and beyond to make our day extra special and it turned our to be an amazing day. They supplied us with a lot of different equipment for the wedding, and helped us out wherever they could. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the property was, and everyone loved the relaxing and laid back atmosphere, which was a one of the main reasons why we picked Cornwalls House. We would recommend this property to anyone. Thank you for everything!
