'Brucedale' is the sixth generational property of David Suttor and the oldest continual family agricultural business in Australia.
Why chose Peel
‘Brucedale Cottage’ is self-contained accommodation for up to 4 guests. The cottage has two bedrooms (one queen and one double), one bathroom and a slow combustion wood fire in the living room, with wood supplied for the duration of your stay. The historic cottage has a vibrant interior, decorated with a collection of art and artefacts from around the globe. While there is no undercover parking, you can park on the stone drive at the cottage’s doorstep. The cottage has a private northerly facing wide verandah, with outstanding views across the valley – the perfect space for an evening BBQ and to welcome in the night sky by your fire pit under a blanket of stars. Across the Blue Mountains ‘Brucedale’ comprises 2700 acres of undulating landscape and straddles Clear Creek and the Winburndale Rivulet. Built in 1864, next to the main homestead, ‘Brucedale Cottage’ is the perfect space to take a break and enjoy the pleasures of ‘Brucedale’ (circa 1832) - or use the cottage as your base to explore the region. The ideal retreat for those wishing to take a country walk, picnic or just relaxing and soaking up the beauty of the area. Wander the property and look out for wombats, echidnas and kangaroos. The accommodation isn’t suitable for pets - as ‘Brucedale’ is a working property with stock, working dogs and own pet dogs and cats, we are not able to offer accommodation for guests wishing to travel with pets. Mobile reception is only available through Telstra and if you plan to work during your stay, you will need to BYO a Telstra modem or dongle as there is no wi-fi at the cottage. The nightly rate is for two guests sharing the same bedroom. If you require separate bedrooms, the extra guest rate applies after the first guest. A community tennis court is located in Peel. If you’d like us to book a time for you to enjoy a game, please let us know in advance so we can check the availability. There is no fee for use of the tennis court.
What makes this Cottage unique
For a booking to be accepted, you will need to provide proof of double vaccination status (a MyGov Vaccination Certificate) for every guest you are wishing to include in your booking, proof of address for every guest you are wishing to include in your booking (if your LGA is in lockdown, we won’t be able to accept your booking) and, if applicable – an essential worker requiring accommodation in our region – evidence of permission to travel into Bathurst is required. If you are travelling from outside of our region, we also require evidence of a negative Covid test within 72 hours of arrival. If you are wishing to book for children within the age group of 12-15 years, you also need to provide proof of double vaccination status. Sadly, we will not be accepting booking for children under the age of 12 years, who cannot be vaccinated. While we don’t wish to cause offence, we have a firm commitment to our region. Subject to availability, tours of the farm are available upon request. Bathurst is the oldest inland city in Australia and there are many scenic drives to nearby villages such as O’Connell, Sofala, Hill End, Millthorpe and Carcoar
