Welcoming Hosts

  • 4 of 5

Went to Oberon/O'Connell to visit Mayfield Gardens. Nice location lovely hosts and close proximity to the gardens. Only issue was with the fire needing some TLC but other than that was a lovely stay :)

Lovely country cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the wood fire kept the cottage nice and cosy when there were cold winds and frosts outside! It was very comfortable and we felt very much at home. The location is perfect halfway between Bathurst and Oberon and its only about 20 minutes away from the amazing Mayfield Gardens.

The slow combustion heater warms the cottage and plenty of wood is supplied. The O'Connell pub has fabulous food and the café opposite serves great coffee Fri, Sat &Sun.

Owner's Response: Dear Bronwyn & David What a lovely surprise to read your review, thank you so much for being so complimentary. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. I visited the exhibition on the Friday - my goodness what a very well organised event and spectacular to see. I gather it was a great success with visitors from all over the place. How did the fishing go? I hope you enjoyed the experience of being on the river. Did the girls enjoy the show? It was the first time we took our little grandchildren 2&3! they loved the animals and rides. Please don't worry about the sheets - all are clean and white! I hope we see you again you are very welcome With kind regards David & Pennie McKibbin
