Queen bed would have been ideal but this is a minor criticism. We really felt as if it was home away from home
Thanks Allan for your stay. We have been considering putting in a queen bed but the space does limit and would have to take out a bedside table. Thanks again for leaving the cottage so well and hope to see you again in the future..

Beautiful peaceful place
My husband and I were thinking of finding a place to stay with our 2 poodles. Then I found Yarramin Park farm stay. We felt so good the vibe was amazing as well as a beautiful atmosphere as soon as we got out of the car.
Then we walked in to a cosy cottage, and the courtyard was just gorgeous. Beautiful views and a peaceful environment, just what we needed.
Very clean and well equipped. Can't wait to stay there again. Thanks to Cate being so friendly as well.
Eva and Andrew
Eva and Andrew Thanks for your review and leaving the cottage so wonderful, especially with two pups staying. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again. Regards Cate and Brad and Millie and Dolly
Nice and Peaceful
My husband , I and our puppy really enjoyed our stay in Yarramin Farm. It's a cosy and very well designed place. The view is great and our puppy enjoyed watching horses walking around.
Having access to the pool was a great benefit as well.
We would like to thank Cate for her hospitality and all the useful information she gave us to make our stay a great one.
This was the word my wife used for the stay we had at Yarramin Farm stay.
We were there 4 nights and I have to comment on the instant hot water which I really appreciated and did not expect being in a rural property far better than where we live in the city.
The property has a beautiful fenced off garden so our dog was very happy he is only a 9KG dog so he had lots of space, the location is great as we had visits to Smith's Lake, Seal Rocks, Coomba Park, Forster all less than 30 mins away.
The bedroom is recently fitted and has a luxurious calm feel I slept-in which is unusual, the bed is a Double rather than a Queen/King.
Shower and Bathroom recently refitted and is nicely tiled and fairly large.
The Living area is separated by a sliding door from bedroom so good if you have an inquisitive Pet as we wanted to make sure the bedroom stayed in its as new state.
Kitchen has a microwave, a little oven/toaster which I found worked well and sufficient other stuff that you will need to have a meal or tea etc.
BBQ got used and the owners are very accommodating sorting us brekkie stuff for our first night for a nominal fee and then offered us seafood later in the week for another nominal fee all made the stay very relaxing.
I really liked the views from the garden whilst sitting sipping tea. The horses in the nearby paddock kept our little dog intrigued so much bigger than a City Dog!
On the final night it was a very clear sky and the stars viewed from the back garden was a truly magical experience.
I recommend for a Couple with a pet to stay.
Thanks Simon for your stay with us and your gorgeous dog. Thanks also for leaving the cottage so immaculate, it is so appreciated. Hope to see you again. Regards, Cate and Brad
We loved coming back for a break. Wonderful for our Dogs to stay too. Owners are absolutely Fab !!! We could have stayed for a few more days......We will be back for sure. Highly recommended !!!! Thank you Cate ;-)) Karin & Dave and the 2 Barkies
Thanks Karin and David for your stay with us again. We appreciate how you always leave the cottage and we would not know that there were two pups staying. Sorry the prawns did not happen while you were here but maybe next time.
We had a lovely stay Yarramin park with our two staffys. Our hosts were wonderful and we were lucky enough to get a kg of prawns from Cate and Brad from the previous nights hall. The cottage was very comfortable and beautifully furnished. Very secure courtyard. We will be back!
Thank you Nicole for your stay. We appreciate the way you left the cottage. We hope to see you and your 2 pups again. Regards, Cate
