We had a wonderful time at madison's. Loved the farm and Alpacas, the heated spa was a big hit with my 5 YO. Only problem we had was there should be a curtain at the carriage window walkway where the bathroom is. Otherwise the bedroom & loungeroom carriages were very warm, maybe needs heating in the kitchen bathroom area -... More

What an amazing feeling as you drive onto the property and see the alpacas and chickens with great cabins to stay in. We had a glorious wood fire and a great sleep then an amazing farm breakfast hamper with fresh chook eggs!! Great time with the family.

We visited Madison's with our 2yo and 5week old newborn for a lovely break close to sydney and stayed in T1. This refurbished train was great fun for all of us. i was surprised how huge it was with ample space for my toddler to run around and play. The London bus bed, Thomas train table and suitcase full of... More

We stayed for the long weekend in June and found it to be peaceful and relaxing. We would definitely recommend families staying in the carriages as there is plenty of room and is warm and inviting. We enjoyed the facilities including the spa, swimming pool and tennis court, meeting and feeding the Alpacas. There is a easy bush walk that... More

We had a lovely weekend, the place is beautifully maintained, the staff are super friendly and relaxed and our 17mo loved exploring the property and of course seeing all the animals up close. There was even a little cubby house with lots of toys to keep him busy. It's perfect for a family with kids of any age, but feels... More

Lovely property with very welcoming and helpful service. Our kids were very excited to be staying in a train carriage and the red bus bed was met with screams of joy. Comfortable and relaxing stay and easy to get to from Sydney.

We really enjoyed our stay at Madison's - we had really bad weather, rain & fog, but this seemed to add to the relaxation of the stay. The alpaca's were lovely to watch & feed. The hen's wandering around the grounds very peaceful. Lots of colour autumn colour in the tree's. The cabin was very comfortable, the fire awesome &... More

Stayed here for the nearby (30 mins) Mt Wilson Autumn Festival. On Bells line of road but traffic noise wasn't a problem (rain may have helped). Stayed in a cabin. Best things were a very very comfortable king bed, great shower/water pressure, verandah overlooking dam, dog-friendly, peacock, alpacas. Pleasantly surprised to find they had tv which wasn't expected. Managed to... More

We arrived here during a heavy day of rain, from SYDNEY airport having flown in from Singapore. Our flight was early, so we arrived earlier than expected. Although our cabin wasn't ready (we didn't expect it to be, but thought we'd try), we were advised to go to the nearby Botanical gardens for an hour, which we did. On our... More

We had a problem with this place as they were stocking caffeinated water (yes caffeine infused water) in their fridges for the use of their guests. We thought it was water....(I mean how often do you look at the label of apparently normal water bottles). Our two young children drank the water, we had the worst nights sleep as they... More

Yes, we did give you a unique gift and I am sorry that you did not appreciate it. It is clearly marked both in its name (H20 + Coffein) and its ingredients, and it does not look like a normal bottle of water. You gave the children the drink as it is impossible for a small child to open the... More
