About the property

Couples Retreat

Pudding Hill Farm, a couples retreat, is nestled in the emerald landscape of Foxground Valley, less than two hours from Sydney and under three hours from Canberra. Its 10 minutes from the quaint town of Berry or the beaches of Gerringong and Gerroa. One of the hidden treasures south of Sydney, Foxground is hugged by the escarpment and encompasses rolling green hills, rich farmland, a beautiful crystal clear spring fed creek (Broughton Creek), peace and tranquillity.

We offer two cottages (Saddleback Cottage and Broughton Cottage) allowing you the choice of a relaxing couples getaway or book both cottages for two couples.

Our farm starts at the foot of the valley and stretches up into the rainforest, horseshoed by the escarpment and views of the ocean, it's the perfect setting to relax and forget about the demands of daily life. It's also a great base so that you can explore the local area, browse the shops and markets of Berry and Gerringong, engage with us on the working farm, visit the local wineries and top class restaurants….or do them all!

On arrival, you will be greeted with a cheese plate and locally produced wine. Our brand new cottages are beautifully furnished and have a self-contained kitchen with enough equipment for you to stay indoors and not leave the farm. We will also provide a selection breakfast items such as cereals, fresh farm eggs, fresh milk, local bread, coffee (Nespresso machine) and tea.

We have alfresco dining with your own BBQ and numerous outdoor settings giving you the choice of ocean or escarpment views. Relax on the Adirondack chairs and read a book or snooze on the comfy daybed.

Other features include a digital TV with USB port, Bluetooth speakers to listen to your own music, a selection of board games, large bath including underfloor heating in the bathroom.

Enjoy the experience of more than 45 varieties of bird life and 22 variety of native animals. The local mob of kangaroos and wallabies will welcome you in the morning and late in the afternoon. Watch in the afternoon as the black cockatoos or flying foxes (this is how "Foxground" gets its Anglo name) glide majestically across the valley. You will be spoilt with the choice of watching the sun set across the valley or the moon rise.

My husband and I stayed at Puddinghill farm as the 1st stop down the south coast for our honeymoon over 2 years ago. I write this review now because it is one of very few places that has stuck with me, it was truly unforgettable! We loved every second there, decor was stunning, the eye for detail remarkable, wine and cheese upon arrival, clean and quality throughout, and the view simply magical. I'm only sorry that I didn't write this review sooner and were aching to get back to enjoy some more time together in the place thst kickstarted our wonderful marriage xx

My new husband & I stayed here recently for our mini-moon and it was absolutely amazing!!

The little personal touches- keys waiting, cheese & champagne chilling in the fridge, farm fresh eggs, fresh bread & milk were so so lovely to arrive to.

The cottage itself is stunning, so modern, clean & very comfortable. It had everything we needed for our little getaway and the view of course was just incredible.

We will most definitely be back, thank you so much for having us!

Much needed break.

  • 5 of 5

We drove the road less travelled around the quaint area of Foxground and turned into the property marked as 'Pudding Hill'. High up on the rise, we could see our accommodation and breathed a sigh of relief knowing it looked just as seen on the Stayz site. Our relief continued when we entered and saw just how cute this place was. Everything was as described. We relaxed and tried to put our city life behind us for the few days we were there and pretty well succeeded! We breathed in the country air and slept well.....something that we hadn't done in a while.

Anyone wanting a chance to escape the rat race....this is the place to go! And as others have noted....the sheets are crisp and the jams need to be tasted to be believed. Thanks guys for providing quality not quantity.

Beautiful serene country comfort

  • 5 of 5

The photo doesnt do justice on how beautiful this place is. The surroundings, the comfort of the cabin & its facility is a 5-star service in a farm setting. That was one of the best & relaxing getaway we have ever had. Like it so much i requested 2 nights. Im sure they will be impressed too.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved the sample cheese and wine and jams. We could not fault the beautiful location and the layout and presentation of the cottage. We did struggle to work out how to change the bath tap to shower as the button was very stuck. But overall we enjoyed our stay.
