Stayed at Marple Lodge while at Bathurst for a conference. Three adults and one child - my parents came with me to baby sit. Plenty of room (inside and out) and lots of things for my daughter to do - they did not feel they had to be taking her somewhere all the time (in fact I think they were all very happy to stay 'home' quite alot of the time). A beautiful residence with top quality finishes and first class attention to detail. Very comfortable and truly a home away from home. The beds were especially comfortable and we all enjoyed great sleeps! Katy and Bruce were lovely hosts - friendly, welcoming and informative. Well located close to town but in a semi-rural setting - peaceful, quiet, relaxing... Marple Lodge is highly recommended!!!
