“A must do visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

A great opportunity to visit a historically important house and be able to meet the family who is bringing it back to life. Would definitely recommend.

“Worth a look”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

It is a wonderful building with a great history and the tour was done by the son of the owner (? Morgan ) who was passionate about it. Sadly it needs a lot of restoration and the once beautiful (I'm sure) grounds are unkempt and wild.Inside is bit over cluttered and it is hard to appreciate the pieces (collected by the owner Rex Morgan from all over the world )when displayed in this way.In saying all that,it is still worth a look as the design is unique with stained glass windows and many ornate features.The gift shop needs a makeover however as I was happy to buy something as a way of donating ,but not even a typical tourist tea towel ,mug or similar all junk really.

“A Victorian Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Built in the 19th Century by a successful grazier who wanted to display his success by recreating a Scottish mansion, Abercrombie house is a beautifully restored heritage building. The Morgan family have spent 30 years restoring the mansion to a magnificent condition. The current owner, Chris Morgan can give a fascinating account of the history of the house and of his own labours in the restoration. The house also contains a rich collection of artworks and Asian arts and crafts. Worth visiting Bathurst to enjoy it.

“Open Day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

It was open day so we got a guided tour all through the house. The most fascinating thing for me was all the different old wallpaper.
