About the property

'The Diary' has been fully renovated featuring second hand building materials offering you every comfort with a country style that will appeal with french doors, lead light windows, claw leg bath, comfy brass bed, slow combustion stove for cozy winter nights, air conditioning and ceiling fan for warmer weather.

Full kitchen and gas BBQ. All linen, towels and wood supplied.

The result of our efforts to create a perfect weekender will amaze you and it can all be yours... a great place to spend a romantic weekend or mid week getaway.

With us you can do what you please - a little or a lot.

After a hard day relax in front of the fire on the comfy lounge or take a soak in the deep old fashioned claw leg bath before climbing into the brass bed for one of the best nights sleeps.

Come and see for yourself you won't want to leave.

Do it all or do nothing

For the active there are great hills to climb, wineries, olive and stone fruit farms to visit (3 within a 1 km drive) or just sit relax on the wide east and north facing verandahs to catch the sun, read that book, enjoy the weekend papers while listening to the birdlife or spot the cheeky kangaroo or wombat family in the vines or our wilipole sheep in the paddock next door or just gaze at the Milky Way.

Enjoy the privacy, relax and enjoy

A TV, DVD and bookcase of books to browse and magazines to skim. Bring your own music.

Mobile reception is patchy so you can escape the world and reconnect with each other - long walks and talks, cuddles by the fire or just an afternoon snooze.

Enjoy that local bottle of wine with a fabulous local cheese or olives while watching the local birdlife with a rural outlook and starry, starry nights.

Great cosy weekend

  • 4 of 5

The Dairy has everything you need for a weekend away from it all. We really enjoy our bbq's on the deck with a glass of wine, after a fully day out tasting. The Dairy has wonderful views and is just around the corner from the centre of town. Would definitely recommend The Dairy for a weekend.

Convenient location and lovely outlook.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our two night stay at The Dairy. Loved the look of the antique bed but it wasn't very comfy! Don't want to sound picky but think there maybe a problem with the bathroom plumbing. After emptying the bath, water proceeded to rise through the floor drain. I also think a note should be left on the BBQ telling people to clean it after they use it. No big deal, but the hairdryer was missing. Anne and Terry were very helpful with their info on the surrounding region and it was interesting looking at their old photos of The Dairy and the amazing job they have done with it.

Magic Mudgee @ the Dairy

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the stay at the Diary. Be prepared for no mobile reception and to switch off! Conveniently located next door to the amazing Logan winery and only a short drive into town, this place is great to relax and unwind. It has a little kitchen and BBQ to cook meals and sit on the deck and enjoy the colours of the dying sun in the afternoon. Anne and Terry are amazing hosts and made everything easy! Definitely going to head back!

Rustic and well placed

  • 4 of 5

The Dairy was a last minute grasp at accommodation for the long weekend. Within a minutes drive of three wineries, and overlooking a vineyard, the Dairy proved to be a neat location. Dinner on the deck each night watching mountains change colour was magic, along with clear skies. Anne was very helpful with info on Mudgee.

Great Value, thanks Anne !

Milkyway view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend away.

It was our first time in Mudgee and it was so relaxing and the view was beautiful.

It can be noisy because it's on the highway but not to extent that you can't relax. (at night it gets quiet)

The house itself is very warm and cosy.

There's no reception in the area but you are only 10mins away from the main city.

We will definitely come back again.

Excellent property and location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed at The Dairy,Appletree cottage and thouroughly enjoyed the experience. The interior is very neat and clean and the slow combustion fire just finishes off the cosy feeling. If I would make a request it woul be for the radio to be tuned into a station. We were unable to listen to any local news or music during our stay although we did have some CDs which we purchased in town. Great quiet relaxing location.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the suggestion. I'll also put a note on top of the radio with the local station in case it moves off again. .
