We stayed in the Coachman Cottage. Wonderful, cosy, beautifully presented old world charm. Louise Archer was kind, caring & most helpful on our arrival in the cold & dark. She set & lit a fire in the charming front parlour & made us feel most welcome. She answered all our questions on the family history of the Archers at both... More

Thankyou for your review and you have discovered that Winter is a perfect time to visit Brickendon as you can enjoy the character of the convict built cottages with the open fire and exploring the property at your leisure. We look forward to seeing you and your family again. More

We spent one night in the Gardeners cottage and wished it had been more! The cottage is located at the end of a laneway at the far edge of the main house. It is in a lovely secluded spot all on its own surrounded by a cute cottage garden. We arrived in the afternoon to a fire lit in the... More

We stayed two nights in June and were delighted to have the village to ourselves. We stayed in the Old Farm Cottage and were very comfortable relaxing by the fire, exploring the village and chatting in the reception. What a special place to stay. We would happily return at any time of year, but don't be put off by the... More

Thank you so much for your great review. You are right about Winter being a lovely time to travel, less visitors, invigorating days and great to enjoy the open fires at night. More

Really enjoyed a visit to Brickendon and exploring the Historic Village. The buildings are fantastic, and it's easy to get a feel of how it must have been when it was a busy village back in colonial days. Loved seeing ducks, and chooks, just roaming around.

Thank you for your review of Brickendon and you have highlighted one of the features that makes Brickendon different. The farm animals bring the historic Farm Village to life ! and the convict buildings truely reflect their history of more than 190 years. Thankyou. ! More

Stayed at the Gardener's Cottage and enjoyed the privacy, and surrounding views and environment. Away from urban life and away from the reality, you'll just get soaked into the quiet atmosphere in the cottage and in the estate area. Get in touch with the farm animals too. It's just fun! Wonderful place you must visit should you choose a farm... More

Spent a night in Pumpkin cottage. One of a number of cottages on Brickendon Estate. Beautiful quiet farm stay, many sheep ducks chooks cows and a very hard working Louise. Cottage has double and single bedroom lounge well equiped kitchen with all that is needed for continental breakfast and lovely rear verandah overlooking the broad farming paddocks.

Old Farm Cottage is a modernised cottage with upmarket towels but only instant coffee - at this price! There were well preserved outbuildings with farm animals to feed in the morning and helpful staff. Seeing the grounds after hours was enjoyable, especially the walk through the fields to the river.

This review is from the perspective of a mother of a 1 and 5 year old. We stayed in the Pumpkin Cottage for one night in January 2016. The cottage was quaint and the fridge had been thoughtfully stocked with milk, orange juice, and baby food. But the magic was in the evening when I spotted a duck in the... More

We have stayed at Brickendon a couple of times before - in the Gardners Cottage. This time we had an overseas friend with us so chose one of the farm cottages with 2 bedrooms (sweetcorn). We absolutely loved it. The cottages are built so perfectly sympathetically to feel like they'd been there for 100 years. The beds were comfortable, the... More

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in a different cottage. Yes the cottages do all offer different experiences which hopefully encourages return visits! Moddy the cat has been a favourite for many visitors to the Farm Cottages and offers a good "substitute" for pets left at home. We look forward to seeing you again.!! More

Stayed one night in Old Farm cottage with overseas friends. Beautifully renovated cottage, comfy warm and had everything we needed. Rooster crowed at 4am - but that is part of farm life. Lots to see and do and very friendly helpful staff.
