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.

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

Big thanks to Pennie and David for making our stay so enjoyable. Property and cottage lovely with beautiful views. The horse and cows were very friendly. both Pennie and David went out of their way to make sure everything in the cottage was working. Had Many chats with David while he was working on the farm. Loved their dog dusty too. Would definitely return to stay.
