About the property

Welcome to Cloudhill. Perched atop the ridge off Range Road in Mittagong and sitting at around 800 metres above sea level, the property has glorious country views across farmlands to Sydney, the Blue Mountains and beyond. As the name suggests, expect to wake some mornings to fluffy white clouds floating past your window and if the weather and season permits, maybe a complete five-station firework display from Sydney Harbour!

Formerly part of a 500-acre dairy farm and now sitting prettily on 6.5 acres surrounded by 100 acre lots - it is a quality property and a quiet and peaceful retreat with abundant wildlife. There are eagles that hunt on the property on a daily basis, lots of rabbits and the occasional fox and wombat. In season there are cows and sometimes calves on the property.

The gorgeous refurbished cottage has character-laden original sections with beautiful Kauri floorboards and original parts of the dairy cottage are over 100 years old but it has been refurbished with all the modern conveniences, and furnished with a mix of antique and vintage furniture, to ensure a blissful stay.

• Large living room with sun-room and great family dining area with magnificent views

Beautiful family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at beautiful Cloudhill. The house exudes warmth and country charm, the children loved the garden and the views are just spectacular. We could not have wished for a better or more relaxing break from the City.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit this review for Cloudhill. We agree, this property has the most wonderful views and the owners have certainly done a great job in setting up this property. Given the property's seclusion it is hard to imagine that Bowral and Mittagong are both just a short drive away. We, at the Holiday Rental Specialists - Highlands Holidays are very proud to have this property on our books and we hope to have you stay again soon.
