Shearer's Cottage is a small cottage, the perfect size for a couple. The property has wonderful views and a few walks you can enjoy. Sitting on the back porch watching the farm animals is very relaxing. Sitting by the fire on the rocking chair is very enjoyable and plenty of wood is supplied. The old Sydney stove's oven (while very quaint) is very slow so if you're thinking of cooking a roast it might take a while. There's also no freezer only a fridge.
The area was outstanding in beauty. The cottage was probably lovely when it was first renovated but is now very tired and needed a good clean. The paintwork was dirty, the shower curtain was dirty, the whole of the cottage was very dusty. Everything had to be washed before we could eat and drink- all utensils, cups, plates etc.The "quaint" stove was a health hazard and covered in mouse droppings.There was only one pan for cooking with. We had a mouse that visited regularly inside the cottage and lots of flies. The whole cottage needs a serious amount of TLC and cleaning. There was no information about the surrounding area- no leaflets, pamphlets.
Relaxing with beautiful views!
The Shearer’s cottage was the perfect place to relax and reset for 2 nights. We were blown away by the views from the cottage and enjoyed relaxing on the porch and watching the animals at sunset. The property is stunning and we saw lots of wildlife and more beautiful views on the 2 walks we went on. The cottage was self contained and had everything we needed to enjoy our short stay. Thanks Rob and Deb! We will definitely be back!
Cozy and comfortable
The house is closer to the road than it looks in the photos, but you can't hear the traffic from inside. It's close enough to town and wombeyan caves for a nice day trip.
Was very cozy with the fireplace and plenty of cut firewood. Would've loved to check out the walks but the weather didn't allow while we were there. Nice and cozy for a couples weekend away.
Also, the owners were quick to reply to questions online, (before we got there- minimal reception onsite) but gave us complete privacy while we were there.
Great for a weekend getaway in country
Cute & cosy for a quiet weekend with country life experience. Perfect location for Wombeyan cave visit and explore the area around.
Beautiful and peaceful place
Great place to stay for the weekend. Peaceful and beautiful. Surrounded by farm animals and kangaroos. Excided my expectations. Thank you Rob!
