A very warm welcome from one of the owners who gave us a comprehensive history of the family estate. The farm buildings were very interesting and the garden at the main homestead were truly beautiful.

Brickendon Estate is still a working farm with many historic farm buildings. The buildings are spread out but easy to walk around.

W enjoyed everything about our stay here. The cottages are wonderful and as you are on site you can wander around in the evening or go and eat in Longford or cook in the cottage. We enjoyed feeding all the animals and looking at the interesting buildings especially the tiny church and the shearing shed.

The history of the estate is very interesting. Lots to see and do. Make sure you visit in time to join the animal feeding (sheep, donkey, horses, goats, chickens, pig, ducks, turkey, calf etc). Beautiful gardens (we saw an echidna here).
