What a wonderful surprise it was for us ,

The ambience ,,the wonderful staff , the food ,and any room you choose has its own charm .
Keep this beautiful home on your ( to do book )
You could spend hours just looking at all the ornaments and antiques that Christine has collected over many years .and all the special touches Christine has put together .

We had the absolute pleasure of staying with Christine, David and their team this weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the time Christine met us at the door as if we were old friends returning home till we sadly departed we were in the lap of luxury. Bishop's Court is simply stunning. The rooms are magnificent and luxuriously appointed. Guest's want for nothing. Every little detail is taken care of. We had the pleasure of dining in that evening and the food prepared by Christine and her team was succulent and delicious. Breakfast the next morning was more of the same with beautiful stewed fruits and cereals to lovely fresh farm eggs and bacon. Christine's passion for Bishop's Court, the community of Bathurst and everything it has to offer is fabulous. Bishop's Court Estate is a magnificent. We will be back.

"enter as strangers, leave as friends". This is a small plaque on one of the many bursting bookshelves at Bishop's Court - and it's true. Bishop's Court is an intimate experience - with clientele who seem to come again and again.
I don't know how they do it, but Christine just seems to get every little and big thing right.
Supported by a clearly doting team, this is a very special way to spend a night.
My only reservation was that I didn't stay longer.
The residence is wonderful with beautifully appointed rooms - surrounded by a wonderful garden. Plenty of spots both inside or outside to be by yourself, or join others. A bit of a sanctuary actually. We were there for work - and it was the perfect place to collapse after a long day of travel and meetings - but I'll be back for pure pleasure! Thank you.

We want to say a big Thank you ! to Christine ( our host) from Bishop's Court Estate in Bathurst. My Colleague and I stayed there for one night in early September and it was an absolutely amazing experience - outstanding actually! Bishop's Court is a beautiful heritage house situated in the heart of Bathurst that is elegant , luxuriously appointed but importantly very homely. From the moment we stepped through the front door we were introduced to a timeless elegance and classic ambience that echoed throughout the property and it's extensive verandas and gardens. We were greeted with wonderful hospitality that is unique in this day and age. My colleague and I both agreed that it was actually the best accommodation we have ever had the good fortune to stay at. Beautifully appointed, but extremely comfortable as well. Christine is an excellent host and obviously a highly talented interior designer who clearly enjoys visitors to her estate and makes her guests feel very welcome. Christine's extensive knowledge of the history of Bishop's court and Bathurst in general makes the stay even more interesting and unique. Breakfast was lovely and relaxing in the 12 seater dining room, freshly made juices and cappuccinos flowed alongside the array of breakfast options . We found it rather hard to leave after just one night ! Thanks Again Christine for a wonderful stay in beautiful Bishop's Court with its timeless character and charm. A Must to stay! Vicki

Beautiful residence and gardens with luxurious decor. Nothing but the very best would satisfy Christine, David and their staff who made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Delicious food obviously prepared by very talented kitchen staff and Christine who has a passion for cuisine.
Would we go back - absolutely. Time of year - anytime. Reason - no reason needed except to be pampered.

I’d love to tell you how welcoming Christine and her team were from the moment we first contacted her about staying at Bishops Court until the moment we left.
I’d love to tell you how, without fuss, Christine made some fantastic recommendations to local attractions and wineries and found us a table at a booked out restaurant.
I’d love to tell you about the quality of the furnishings, and the attention to detail throughout Bishop’s Court.
I’d love to tell you about the amazing conversations we had in the kitchen while she skilfully demonstrated and shared her cooking techniques with her Cooking School students.
And I’d love to tell you about the amazing breakfast Christine and her team served up on Sunday morning and how she made everyone of her guests feel like they’d joined a group of their favourite friends in the dining room.
But, I won’t. Because then you’ll want to stay at the best kept secret in Bathurst, and I won’t be able to get a reservation next time.
On the other hand, if you’re like me and don’t quite understand how people could be so effusive with their accolades for Christine and her team, do yourself a favour and check out Bishop's Court. I’ve stayed at numerous B&B’s and high-end hotels throughout the years, and I’ve never found someone who manages to make you feel like part of her extended family the way Christine does.

Bishop's Court is a magnificent and tranquil place with beautiful interiors and gardens decorated to the highest standards. However, it is not only the beauty of the place but more importantly, the kindness and care shown to us by the people at Bishop's Court that made our recent stay an unforgettable experience of great joy, relaxation, excellent food, fun and friendship.

Christine and her wonderful staff greeted us warmly like old friends when we arrived. They took very good care of us by anticipating all our needs and wants and made us feel very special throughout our stay. The juices, wine and food were superb - not only in terms of taste but also in presentation.

Our group of 6 took an afternoon cooking class from Christine. I highly recommend that you do too. Christine is a fabulous teacher and shared with us a number of very helpful techniques, shortcuts and tips which we could easily use at home.

Our menu consisted of Pumpkin, Sage and Ricotta Ravioli served with a Burnt Butter and Pinenuts sauce, Pork and Veal Terrines with Cranberries and Pistachio Nuts and Chicken Ballotine with Crushed Potatoes and Leeks Served with Thyme Jus. We had them for dinner and they were absolutely delicious. We then went into the kitchen where Christine showed us how to make our dessert - Passionfruit Souffles with Grand Marnier and Raspberry Creme. We agreed that it was the best souffle, and definitely among the best desserts, we have ever had.

A very big thank you to Christine and her wonderful staff. We certainly indulged, relaxed and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. I just can't think of anything which Christine or her staff could have done better for us during our stay! We hope to return soon.
