Our last minute getaway from Sydney to this mountain retreat was well worth the drive. Our children aged 4 and 6) loved hand-feeding the alpaca's, looking for the free-range chicken's eggs in the gardens, feather finding and generally exploring the farm on their own. We all took advantage of the heated plunge pool in the middle of winter as well... More

The wood fire in the cabin was perfect for cuddling up by and watching movies or reading a book. The alpacas, goats, chickens and Andrew the peacock really made for... More

If you're looking for a peaceful setting with cosy log fires, comfy king beds and spacious verandahs, this is perfect. The cottages are very well stocked with all "essentials" for a great weekend - even a generous brekky basket. We came as a family group for a 50th celebration and all age groups were catered for with the little ones... More

We were a very large group who ended up booking out 4 of the cabins and 1 of the train carriages. What a wonderful location, the cabins were clean and warm and we were made to feel extremely welcome. We used pretty much all of the facilities and the kids loved the pool, spa, tennis and common room. A fire... More

We loved our short break here. The alpacas were adorable and friendly, Fiona was a sweet and welcoming host who was keen to fulfil our every wish, and the setting was glorious in its autumn splendour. Perfect for cosy, fire-warmed weekends of walking and reading. And the bed was sooo comfy.
