Excellent property

We really enjoyed our stay at Yarramin park, the cottage was set in a peaceful area & was clean with all amenities eg. Books, DVDS etc there to make our stay enjoyable. Our dogs were also made welcome!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lyn and Paul, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and we thank you for leaving the cottage in such a wonderful state. You would not even know that your two very well behaved pups had even stayed. Thanks and hope to see you again

Beautiful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our fur baby Jakey over the hot weekend just past. This place is extremely pet friendly and safe for your fur babies. Everything Cate the owner wrote on her page is spot on, if you read everything carefully, this place will meet and exceed your expectation. The place was so clean like 5 start hotel, fully equipped kitchen and everything worked. The weekend we stayed was probably the hottest weekend in history but we stayed cool by staying in the pool. The pool is over-looking the farm and the horses, it was so serene and beautiful. Cate allowed our Jakey to swim in the pool too - Thank you!

Their poodles were very welcoming and friendly. We loved playing with them too.

The cottage has great DVD selections, books and board games.

Foster and Tuncurry was a short drive away which was perfect.

We could not ask for more for the stay. We will be back and refer this place to our friends for sure.

If you plan to stay in the property as much as we did, make sure bring bottled waters with you. There were some waters in the fridge but I was not sure tab water was safe to drink or not.

Thank you Cate for being a friendly host.

PS: thought that 3-star feedback below was too harsh.

Owner's Response: Thanks Haree, Krystian and Jakey, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay, even in the hottest weekend we have experienced in many years. Tank water which is pure rain water is very safe to drink and tastes so much better than chemical loaded town water. Hope to see you again, you were wonderful guests and left the cottage so immaculate.

Pet friendly

  • 3 of 5

We had three nights at Yarramin with our 2 dogs. The property is very pet friendly in that there is an enclosed yard and the hosts will provide bedding etc as needed for your furkids. The accomodation is very well equipped and has recently been refurbished. The location is also handy for Seal Rocks, Boomerang beach etc and easy access to the Pacific Highway.

A couple of points I would make - It is quite a small apartment - for example in the bedroom there is only room for a standard double bed, so if you prefer a queen sized bed, then this might be an issue. The accomodation is also a few metres from the owner's house (at the end of their garden basically). The hosts aren't intrusive in any way but the accomodation does feel a bit overlooked.

There isn't really any views from the actual accomodation - although the garden area is next to the paddocks with the owner's horses. However it isn't really a farmstay, so the name is a little misleading.

We were also put off a bit by the fact that there are laminated notes all over the accomodation with rules as to what you may and may not do. For example, we get that the property relies on rainwater collection and septic tanks - but that's true of virtually every rural property in Australia. It isn't really necessary to put up notes in the bathroom saying 'NO LONG SHOWERS' in shouty letters. A more professional approach is to have a house manual with these kind of things in them and politely ask guests to read the manual.

These may be minor points for other guests, so if you're looking for pet friendly accomodation in the area (and we know how hard this can be to find) then Yarramin is definitely worth considering.

Owner's Response: Thank you Al for your comments. Everything is very transparent on our web page. The small cottage is 15 metres from our back door and not a few metres and guests have their own private courtyard which we do not see visually from the main house. We do have some signs in the cottage regarding our house is on tank water and ask guests to conserve as we rely on rain water to supply our small farm on 18 acres, many of our guests are from cities or overseas and have no knowledge of tank water. We have previously breed stock horses but now only have 3 horses grazing the paddocks. There are some lovely views from the guests courtyard of paddocks, hills and our horses grazing. As said by Al the property is very pet friendly and glad of his comments. Thank you Al, your two dogs were gorgeous and am happy to give a reference for them if needed at any other properties that you visit.

Perfect place for a perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

Had such a good weekend at the Farm Stay. Accommodation was super comfortable and the outdoor area and BBQ perfect for a morning fry up. DVD selection is great also. Most dog friendly place I have ever stayed, dog bowl and towel even provided.
