“Ahhhh...so peaceful”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

For that perfect getaway .... away from the daily grind .... spend some time in the Jenolan Caves walking , caving & relaxing with simply the most peaceful & beautiful place to stay.
Your hosts are great people who do what it takes to make your time with them an event you will never forget.Other than the surrounds the home cooked meals are the absolute highlight...

With fantastic access to the Kanangra-Boyd National Park and the Jenolan Caves, a beautiful vista over the rolling green hills and some of the nicest people you will meet, this is one of the best places I have ever stayed. Brian and Sandra went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable including cooking meals to our vegetarian and gluten free needs. The property is beautiful and really tidy and quiet. The rooms are clean and the place has a great pool and spa which was happily turned on for us to relax after our race weekend. Nothing seemed too much trouble and I can't wait to stay there again.

This is a fantastic B&B built on a farm. The rooms are very comfortable and beautifully decorated with underfloor heating.

The main room for eating and relaxing has a fire place, and a pool and spa is also available which was perfect for relaxing after a day at the caves.

The hosts (Brian and Sandra) are very knowledgeable about the caves and were very helpful as well as providing delicious meals.

Jenolan caves is about a 10 minute drive (going downhill) from the farm.

Keep in mind the closest town is Oberon. It is a small town, with not many restaurants (when we went there, most had shut early. we ended up eating in the RSL). So you'd probably want to take Sandra up on dinner for at least one night of your stay (you won't regret it).

Everything a B&B should be - beautiful location on a small dairy farm, views over the valley, extremely comfortable and clean rooms with underfloor heating, good food, lovely and helpful hosts. A great place to explore Jenolan Caves from - only about 5 to 10 minutes drive down to the Caves carpark. To top it all off they have a 15m indoor pool and spa! Would not hestitate to recommend.
