About Ann Poppelwell
I have lead a varied life initially coming from NZ after qualifying as a RN. Travelling to Australia UK Europe Sweden then Northern Africa adn then spent 1 year living in Capetown RSA then Zimbabwe (when it was Rhodesia) shows you how old I am. Then after 3 years there during the civil war where I worked as a surgical assistant (where I actually got to operate on minor cases myself). Then back to Sydney and nursing and then a relationship. With 2 kids later I found myself working in the Aged Care industry as a Director of Nursing and later as a CEO of an aged care complex. Following this I was involved in training and accreditation in this industry. After 15 years though I felt I needed new horizons so started up and manufactured Silk clothing label called Simply Silk and Bamboo clothing under a Bambootoo. Now another 15 years later I feel it is time to move on so am trading out of this areas too. I supplied over 200 shops in Australia and NZ for some years, but now the retail market climate has changed and most of these stores have been forced to close. High rents and online shopping the cause of most of these closures. I still have my online retail under Simply Silk and will continue to sell this way until all stock is gone. As they say one door closes adn another opens so will see what my next adventure will be. I met my lovely partner Simon 5 years ago in Berrima and we now live together behind Poppies in a new home that has just been built. This makes it easy to greet guests and show them how everything works etc. We both love to travel and hope to keep doing this.

Family wedding weekend
Poppies is an amazingly beautiful property that is so cozy and relaxing. It has everything you need to make you feel welcome and forget the outside world.
At least until it’s time to leave that is!
I would recommend it to anyone and will certainly look forward to returning again myself some day.
Home away from home
The home was fantastic - beautiful grounds with spring flowers, a courtyard garden for an afternoon drink and lovely birds. The house had plenty of space to be together or spots for a quiet moment alone. It was was well-equipped, and Ann provided plenty of breakfast makings and extras. It is located very close to the main street so access to all that Berrima has to offer was an easy walk. We had a great long weekend.
Family get-together at Poppies
Booked Poppies for wedding last week-end. What a great house to have all the family together before the big day. Ann is such a beautiful and generous host. With food, fresh flowers and her geat personality. Loved our stay at Poppies.
I meant to add to the review that it was really lovely to meet you and your family and you are most welcome to come and stay with us anytime. Thanks also for the flowers etc too.
Perfect Sisters Getaway
We (6 sisters - 2 from Sydney and 4 who flew in from New Zealand) stayed at Poppies last weekend, for our annual get together. The weather was cold and sleety outside, but inside the house it was warm and cosy, with the gas fire going and the heated flooring. The home was beautifully presented, from the lovely bed linens to the fruit bowl and breakfast provisions provided. The home is well laid out for a group, with spacious living and bedroom areas. It is well situated in Berrima and close to vineyards, Mittagong and Bowral (our general travel area). We would highly recomend this property and would like to come back.
It was lovely having you stay with us Mary and you are more than welcome to return when you and your family are next here from NZ. Thanks again for your comments.
Short break for busy group of Mums.
Booking was smooth and easy. Anne made sure we were all looked after for our arrival. House was nice and warm, beds were comfy, and property was in a great location, with a short walk to local cafes and shops. Would consider staying here again.
Jeanette and her family were great guests, easy to accommodate and left the house so clean and tidy that you would scarcely know they had been 4 days there. Always welcome back anytime.

Amazingly comfortable and peace
Comfortable home away from home offers great opportunities for a relaxing holiday in the beautiful Southern Highlands. It has three spacious double bedrooms, with comfortable beds and delightful decor. Great living space as well, plus a most attractive garden that just invites you to appreciate the bird life and seasonal colours.
Thank you Ruth for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you here to stay with us.. Almost couldn't tell you had stayed as you left the place so spotless.
Just to add though that we have 4 bedrooms, one has the 2 single beds. You are all welcome back anytime too.
