This is my 3rd visit to Pub Hill Farm which I absolutely love staying here, just getting away from Brisbane’s mad city rat race, and very handy where my parents live up the road in Batemans Bay. I come here because Iam a Border Collie lover, just love mingling with the resident dogs, meeting the newest member to the Border Collie pack that Micki said she was getting last year, Kijana (Ki for short)
I was sad to find out last year 'Couger' the Border Collie passed away just before Micki and Ian got back from holidays in June 2011 and not long after I left and Jessie Border Collie passed on earlier in the year…sad!
Iam still here at the farm as of writing this review, the Croft is very nice with always spectacular views of the Inlet and the sun shining in the early morning, waking me up and the dogs come to greet me and my Indian Ringnecks, Greenie and Harry Birds sitting on top of the cage and Ki wanders in just give them a smell and amazingly the birds are not frightened of her. While Micki and Ian are away on holidays, Janine the host cooks up the most beautiful breakfasts, eggs, bacon, mushrooms, sausages, tomatoes..ect and make beautiful coffee as well and the general chat while she is working away in the kitchen.
After breakfast I walk Ki and Sari (Janine’s Border Collie) around the farm near the Inlet, but not of the property boundary as before as I took the dogs a grand tour of the South Coast a couple of years back. I experience a little bit of farm life as well helping moving the cows to an adjacent paddock last week and feeding the horse in the afternoons and the 4 Border Collies.
Well as I will be leaving on Friday 10th May as it will be a little sad, I would just love to add that it is so enjoyable being here in the peace and quiet especially when you are here just yourself and the dogs and animals and no one else, just relaxing enjoying a movie! Wonderful place you have here Ian and Micki, you are truly blessed! (Neil, Wed 8th May 2013)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A gorgeous water frontage farmstay self contained cottage for two, high on a hill overlooking the lovely Wagona Inlet and with views to Mt Dromedary in the South. Peaceful, tranquil and welcoming. Hear only the sounds of the birds as you relax on your private terrace and gaze at the views. Only ten minutes from both the seaside town of Narooma and the National Trust village of Central Tilba, Pub Hill is an ideal stopover on the way from Sydney to Melbourne. But plan to stay two nights at least...this area has plenty to offer and is one of the loveliest parts of the stunning NSW South Coast. ... more less
