Description

  • NATURE'S CHILDRENS PLAYGROUND - LET THE KIDS RUN FREE

Spring has arrived along with the lambs. We have 5 orphan lambs who are being bottle fed, so

come and give them some feeds and cuddles!

Perfect days for wandering in the bush, relaxing on the deck in the sun then snuggling up by the woodburner with a glass of wine. Come feed the sheep and chooks and even give the pet lambs a snuggle. Explore the stunning bush surroundings or just kick back and relax on the sunny deck for a BBQ.

Surrounded by working beef and sheep hill farms and nestled at the entrance to a 35 acre spectacular private bush block, absolute privacy, peace and tranquility is assured. Wildlife is all around with tuis, bellbirds, rosella parrots, sulphar crested cockatoos and wild deer and turkeys. This is an idyllic place for hiding away.

    Great, well equipped and well maintained cottage in very quiet and peaceful location. The perfect place for a relaxing break (and feeding lambs and sheep!).

  • Absolutely delightful cottage and location

    Absolutely delightful cottage and location. Such attention to detail like lovely linen and home baking. But the stars of the show were the tame sheep who kept the children amused for hours with their antics. We will be back.

  • A superb getaway from it all cosy, cute, lovely cottage

    A superb getaway from it all cosy, cute, lovely cottage. Perfect for a family weekend of board games, books, movies and walks. The cottage has everything you need and is very private with friendly sheep at your front door. A great place to relax and enjoy the peace & quiet. Thank you Caroline, we had a great time.

  • The cottage was wonderfully cosy for a winter weekend getaway

    The cottage was wonderfully cosy for a winter weekend getaway. The land is great for taking little people on adventures and the friendly sheep just made it! Brand new lambs and cuddly big ones. Absolutely perfect antidote to city life :)
