About the property

See taste orange for more information.

The small property runs along the pretty Boree creek, shaded by she oaks. You may be able to wander down and spot a platypus or just enjoy the peace and quiet sitting on a rock with a book or a glass of wine.

Squatter's cottage is a simple 2 bedroom 1 bathroom cottage which will accommodate 4 people. The living area is light and airy and a wood heater provides a cosy room in winter. There is a fully equipped kitchen with plenty of fridge and freezer space but shops are only 15 minutes away. All linen and towels are provided with electric blankets in winter.There is n Iron and ironing board but no laundry. Tea and coffee are provided.

The cottage itself is comfortable and a bbq and outdoor table allow outdoor seating with views down towards the creek and up towards Hospital hill.

You can wander over to the old shearers huts which although in a state of disrepair provide a glimpse of cooking and sleeping amenities for the local shearers and farm workers.

The property is part of a working farm and there are usually sheep grazing in the paddocks adjacent to the cottage so it is important to close the gates. However please feel free to explore at your leisure.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay!

It is kid and dog friendly (although our kid and dog didn't like the cats eye's in the garden).

It got very hot and we were very happy that the aircon worked so well :)

The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped.

Easy drive to/from Orange and of course the cellar doors!

Would definitely recommend the cottage!

We would love to visit again - maybe in the cooler months so we can enjoy the fireplace :)

A great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Squatter's Cottage Rural Retreat. The accommodation was fantastic, very clean, with a well appointed kitchen, comfy beds and a fantastic wood heater which kept us warm on some very cold nights. An easy drive to Orange and some lovely smaller towns. Highly recommended!

Cosy modern cottage

  • 5 of 5

Everything you needed for a clean comfortable stay. Little phone coverage and hard to find property in the night but really lovely country retreat. Would stay again without hesitation.

Enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We didn't spend as much time at the "squatters retreat" as we would of liked because, we had such a busy weekend, but everything was great, the beds were comfortable and the furnishings were great ! Had everything you needed the only thing that might of been good would be a washing machine and dryer but every thing else was perfect and the bottle of wine on arrival was a nice touch :) thank you for renting your holiday home out :)

Warm, cosy cottage for winter

  • 5 of 5

It was literally snowing in Orange when we came to visit but the cottage was very warm with both combustion fire and heating system. The small farm is a great space for the kids to run around and go exploring. Everything is new (it looks like the whole place was only built a few years ago), comfortable stay if you are looking for a country retreat.
