ABOUT CORNWALLIS HOUSE:
------------------------------------------

LOCATION: -

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

Situated on a quiet country lane with no through traffice, and hidden among the orange groves on the banks of the Hawkesbury River you will find Cornwallis House, a luxurious holiday home, ideal for those looking to find the perfect escape.

The surrounding area is a flat rural picturesque patchwork of citrus orchards, small agricultural farms, turf farms, equestrian stud farms and polo fields. You cant help but be absorbed by the tranquility of the river.

Cornwallis House is grand and charming, 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.

OUR GUESTS LOVE.......
---------------------------------.
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.

Feeling like they're way out in the country, yet they're still so close to the city, and that they 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 anthing extra with you it is completely fitted out with everything you are ever likely to need to cook up a storm.

Soaking in our 6 person outdoor SPA which has prime position on a mezzanine deck facing the river and offering 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 too for early risers).

Escaping for a snooze, or a quiet read and there's no more tranquil place to do so than in one of our 4 extra large family size hammocks on the upstairs wraparound verandah. The kids love them too.

Wandering through the orchard picking orange fruit straight from the trees (in season May - Sep),
You'll never taste orange juice as good as this anywhere else.

Fishing from the riverbank.

Going for a walks down the quiet country lane.

Exploring the many great attractions of the area, including some outstanding cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as the local historic buildings and lively art scene.


ENTERTAINING:
----------------------
Cornwallis House was designed with entertaining in mind. There are two levels of outdoor space, one upstairs and one downstairs, with multiple outdoor settings and places to relax and dine outdodors. 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, depending on the numbers and your requirements. Please ask us about this when you enquire, and remember that honesty is the best policy.


INDOOR ENTERTAINMENT:
-------------------------------------
On the days when the weather is not so good you'll find shelves of new paperback novels, stacks of magazines, over 160 DVDs to watch or CD's to listen to, a Wii games console with adult & childrens games, as well as a large variety of new board games & card games to play, complete with a poker set, as well as a full size table tennis set up in the multi purpose room downstairs.


OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES:
-----------------------------------
When you're feeling active we have 8 adult and 2 childrens bikes (with helmets). You can choose to go for a ride along the country lanes exploring the Cornwallis "lowlands" area, or you could go for a nice 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.


HAPPY KIDS, HAPPY PARENTS, HAPPY HOLIDAY.....
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. We have a small cubby house, 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.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOMETHING EXTRA:

*LAZY LATE CHECK OUT DEAL
---------------------------------------------
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, 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)

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 Amazing house I booked the property for a Xmas in July party for 8. Angelo and Alannah made the process simple and seamless throughout. The house is great for a group as each bedroom has their own en suite. The whole group were thoroughly impressed and we have already recommended it to several friends/ colleagues. We'll be sure to return in the future. There is plenty to do with the bikes, table tennis table etc, however we found it difficult to part with the spa which is such a luxury to enjoy. A huge bonus is its proximity to Sydney! Overall a great weekend retreat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Slice of Heaven in the Hawkesbury Upon arrival to Cornwallis House we were greeted by the friendly owners who walked us through this gorgeous property. We were pleasantly surprised by the grandeur of the house exceeding even our expectations. The house consists of high quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings which are in abundance. The tranquillity of the property with its various features indoor and out were thoroughly enjoyed by our guests with their children and ourselves, making it a very comfortable and a memorable stay. I would highly recommend Cornwallis House to anybody looking for a luxurious stay with the ability to host any event or function. The owners have done an outstanding job setting the property up for multiple families to come stay and play whether young or old. The sweeping views overlooking the Hawkesbury river are truly breathtaking and Cornwallis House is a "slice of heaven in the Hawkesbury".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pre-wedding backdrop My fellow bridesmaids and myself booked Cornwallis house to stay in the night before and after my sisters wedding. The house acted as the perfect backdrop for our pre-wedding festivities and made for a very comfortable morning. The spacious living area allowed for 1 bride, 5 bridesmaids and two mums to get hair and make up done without feeling overcrowded. The view made for beautiful morning photos and we loved staying there. We really appreciated the amenities available upon arrival as you don't often get that when staying in a property. Having breakfast products, juice, tea etc made for a stress free morning and we really appreciated that. Thank you so much for having us at your beautiful home. Hopefully we will be back for a relaxing weekend to enjoy the property a little more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful home away from home Our group enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at this gorgeous property hidden amongst the orchards. Alannah & Angelo were the perfect hosts, meeting us at the door Friday night to show us around the property. We were a group of 10 people and yet we felt there was enough room for all. The 4 bedrooms are large, each with ensuites provided total privacy for each room. We also had additional blow up double beds set up in the function room to accommodate our large group. The kitchen is completely stocked with cutlery, crockery & appliances for all your cooking needs. Alannah & Angelo even supplied us with a beautiful breakfast for the first morning of our stay! The combined dinning and lounge area is very spacious and comfortable. The whole upstairs entertaining area was light & airy with full height windows and doors opening out onto a massive deck area which looks out onto the Hawkesbury river. The large downstairs " function" room comes stocked with lots of sporting equipment, games & even a table tennis table. The highlight for us were the beautiful hammocks that hang in the corners of the wrap around deck and the spa bath that looks directly over the Hawkesbury. We also took advantage of the generous BONUS NIGHT OFFER and enjoyed check a stay over until the Monday morning. We highly recommend this beautiful property for your stay in Windsor!
