About John Mahaffy
We run the B&B as well as a wholesale nursery,& have cattle on the 32ha farm. As experienced travellers we understand what people are looking for to have a relaxed, peacefull experience & will be available to help with local advice or help if necessary.
John Mahaffy purchased this Cottage in 1972
Why John Mahaffy chose Grose Vale
Only 1 hour from Sydney at the end of a quirt country lane, the 32ha farm is ideal if you want to relax, recover from the pressures of city life & rebalance your energy. Bushwalks on the property, lovely valley views with no traffic noise only the sounds of birds.
What makes this Cottage unique
A private 32ha valley, with bushwalks, large garden to sit in , drink coffee on the terrace, or in winter sit in front of the log fire & sip a red wine, read a book, relax.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Very relaxing stay
Could not have asked for anything better !
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, John and Peter were great hosts. Our accommodation very comfortable
Great place, felt very much at home. Our pup Panda enjoyed Jellybeans company also.
Charming and very special
We loved our stay
Our privacy was respected and we were well catered for.
My sister and I are from North Queensland and stayed at the cottage for 8 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The cottage was very comfortable, set on a beautiful property with everything we needed for our stay. It was such a joy being able to have family come visit and be able to cook for them. Peter and John were quick to help with any request and made our stay that little more special. Thanks again for a wonderful time. Lou and Celie
Bed & Breakfast
The continental breakfast cereals we had to choose from was out of date, some packets were open also the jams had been used before. Yes it is an old place but it was dirty. The best part about our stay was the view
We are sorry you found things not to your liking, we were present during your stay & as you did not say anything to us we were unaware that you were not happy, so could not offer solutions to improve your stay.. We have used IXL jams in glass jars for 8 years & this is the first complaint we have had. Checking the cereal packets we could find none open.
my family and I stayed here over the ANZAC long weekend and cannot stop thinking about Hermitage. The property is vast with lots of walking and farm experiences. The cottage is delightful and my boys absolutely loved the fireplace. Thank you John and Peter for your kindness and hospitality. As a family it was a well earned break from Sydney and we will be back to hear those amazing bellbirds.
It was a pleasure to have you stay & the boys were delightfull, full of energy & curosity. Thank you for leaving the cottage spotless.
