Perfect and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay so much! The location is extremely nice, the house is very well kept and clean, there's plenty of room, lots of board games to fill in time, and Margaret made us really feel at home! A great weekend escape within driving distance from Sydney, would recommend to anyone in the area.

Pleasant & peaceful home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at "The Cubby House". We were made very welcome by Margaret and her family even included in a birthday celebration! The location was perfect for the two of us for our visit to our old home town. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean.

Comfortable - amazing views

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was peaceful and relaxing with the only negative being the barking of the dogs. The Cubby House was very clean and comfortable and very private. Enjoyed the kitchen. Views are mesmerising! Good beds, plenty of warm bedclothes. Generous supplies of tea, coffee, eggs etc. Beautiful property - plenty of walks, all with amazing views. Pleasant hostess. We saw the eagles each day, and lots of birdlife, including the jenny wrens nest building. Enjoyed the goats and chickens. Good value for money.

nice quiet stay

  • 4 of 5

Extremely well equipped accommodation set in an ideal location for a few days off from the outside world. Great views and the Host, Margaret, was very hospitable and not intrusive which is something that I worry about when staying at this style of accommodation.

The stay has given our youngest child an appreciation of the way things work and recently commented that she hoped Margaret was getting the rain we were experiencing at home.

With 2 of the 4 of us unwell when we arrived we didn't get to explore the outer reaches of the property but can see there is plenty to explore and we'll be having a look on our next trip!
