“Wonderful setting- great value, great service”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Why are there not more farm-stay motels? What a great concept. We had an impromptu stay when we arrived in the region too late to set up camp- Wendy saved the day with her great value family room. Rooms are a nice spacious version of your standard motel- super clean and with a kitchen well stocked with all the equipment you could need. The kids loved the play equipment and we enjoyed dinner outside at the BBQ area warmed by a camp-fire. Animals and the wonderful view were a treat to wake up to. They also are well set up for those travelling with dogs. A great find- happy to recommend.

We stopped in here with my wife and 2 young children. The access to all the animals on the farm is a terrific experience for the children and the calmness of the surroundings in the evening while listening to the wild life was absolutely wonderful.
The hosts Alan and Wendy we very pleasant and helpful. The cook your own breakfast is a nice touch so you can do it at your own leisure.
Will be back.

We enjoy sharing our beautiful farm with families and seeing young children interacting and feeding the animals and the animals love the attention.

This place was a great choice to get away from it all. A nice and secluded spot, with great views, and plenty of wildlife and farm animals to watch as you chill out.

Breakfast was provided in a hamper the day before, and was a nice touch. The rooms were comfortable, clean and homely.

Owners were warm and friendly.

Would definitely stay again.

My husband, Dave and I stayed at the Bumblebrook for 6 nights while attending and making funeral arrangements for our Dad. Needless to say we needed a quiet, sanctuary. The Bumblebrook ticked every box. Quiet, breathtaking scenery, fantastic hosts, and a great room with everything and anything you could think of. We were able to prepare our meals in the kitchen, relax on the lounge and watch TV and get a great nights sleep in the very comfortable bed with tasteful linens. Our dog, Millie was very happy to take walks on the property and have a covered fenced in area under the unit to stay in when she wanted to be outside.
We had to drive to Bega everyday. It was a quick 20 minute drive through the most beautiful scenery. We were also near Merimbula where there is an abundance of great restaurants and shops. The pub in Candelo had the best burgers and staff. (An easy 5 minute drive if you are too tired to go anywhere else). But best of all were our hosts, Wendy and Alan. They have a sixth sense knowing when you want to be alone and knowing when you might like a little company. The last night we were there we sat by the outdoor fireplace with them, had a little wine and cheese, and just enjoyed talking and finding out more about their venture at Bumblebrook. Thank-you Wendy and Alan. We are still talking about that wonderful cheese you gave us! We wish you good fortune and fun times. Renee and Dave

Bumblebrook is located closish to Bega and is super quiet if your looking for a getaway from hectic city life. We stayed just one night but the rooms were cosy and well equipped and the views from the room out over the valley are amazing, each one feels like your own private cottage. Food is supplied for you to cook your own breakfast which is nice with the curtains open and the greenery visible outside. There is plenty of animals on the farm and pets are also welcome. The place can be a little tricky to find, especially at night, and it literally is in the middle of nowhere so if your after a raging nightlife then its not for you but if your after a quiet getaway then I recommend it. The beds were comfortable and great for sleeping although I did find the biggest moths in history bashing on the window somewhat disconcerting!

This is a beautiful farm motel, i didn't expect much however upon arrival rooms where clean, tidy, modern, flat screen tv and even breakfast was supplied.

Dog friendly which is great, lovely views.

Will defiantly stay here again if I visit the area.

Really nice farm stay cottage, near Bega. Quiet, with gorgeous views over a green valley. Cows, llamas and sheep wander close by. At dusk, the roos come. We stayed here just one night, but after leaving Sydney it was exactly the sort of 60-to-zero downtime we needed.

Cottages felt fairly rustic, as you'd expect at a farm stay. No frills, but a great back deck, and a proper country feel.
