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 , or for a larger event such as a wedding which can be held in the downstairs function room or in a marquee on the lawn.

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 full of recent paperback novels, stacks of magazines and puzzle books, 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, not to mention free wifi so you can download your own entertainment on your portable devices.



When you're feeling active we have plenty of 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 nice 20 minute gentle bike ride into town Windsor along the flat road and bike path.


For the little ones we have a small cubby house, scooters, acres of grounds and lawn for outdoor games and an orchard full of orange trees to pick fruit from in season.

In summer we have an inflatable water slide for the toddlers and two "slip n slides". We also have loads of childrens DVDs and board games and toys for babies and younger children. There's also plenty for teenagers and older children to do in the area. Ask us and we can give you a list of activities in the nearby area for older children.





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 either 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 nights/ Pay 2 nights. Not valid on public holiday long weekends or special event periods or for midweek stays.
