Rokbara Cottage - a farmstay getaway

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Rokbara is situated 30kms from the CBD of Mudgee, the home of wine and food. We are a farmstay with sheep, goats and chickens.

Its a comfortable 3.5 hour drive from Sydney which makes it the perfect destination for that weekend escape.

Rokbara is your perfect country escape for couples, for families who want both a farmstay or a place to rest after a busy day in Mudgee. Its also the perfect escape from connection - there is no mobile coverage at the cottage, just a short trek up the road to our coverage spot gets you connected - but if you want to unwind and relax, this is the place for you.

Our property sits on 100 acres with your own private apple orchard, you can sit on the verandah and just rechage the batteries.

You can bring your own bikes, motorbikes or quadbikes to explore the surrounds of Bara. We are only 20 minutes from the Louee Motorcross Track.

Rokbara is a privately owned property and is reasonably flexible and can be designed to suit your stay, just ask the friendly owners. Our wineries in the region are amongst the best and offer a range of tasting & dining experiences.

Rokbara Pizzas are the perfect way to recharge at the end of a busy day - ask about our menu when you request your booking ! We also can cater for breakfast, lunch or that perfect romantic picnic.

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Rokbara Cottage. We were greeted with a friendly and warm welcome from Rochelle and the kids (and dog!). We went up the hills to watch sunset, the view from the top was breathtakingly beautiful. We finished off the perfect evening with a delicious homemade pizza delivered by Karl, followed by stargazing out in front of the property. We woke up the next day to the chirping sounds of birds. We wish we could have stayed for longer. Highly recommended for a relaxing getaway!

Stunning views and fabulous hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Rokbara Cottage. It is a simple cottage but has everything you need. The real jewel in the crown, was the setting. It was absolute bliss to sit on the veranda and watch the kids discover the natural setting, from yabbies in the dam, feeding the sheep and playing with Patch the dog. Rochelle and Karl really looked after us and even cooked us VERY tasty pizzas one evening. I cannot wait till we can visit again. Pure heaven!!

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Rochelle, Karl and kids thank you so much for the warm friendly welcome. The drive to the accommodation itself is beautiful and then nestled into the hills is this beautiful cottage. Our family loved our time here, hearing the birds in the morning, feeding the sheep, lambs and goats. Early morning walks up the hill at the back of the house was a great start to the day and the wildlife in abundance was fab. The accommodation was very comfortable and made you feel "away from it all". Thanks again Hazel, Mel and girls

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in this cottage twice already and we are going back there again end of the month. It is perfect for a romantic get away as you are left alone with your partner surrounded by beautiful scenery and sound of birds. As dog owners we were sick of motorway inns, the only place where you can stay when you travel the dogs. For us, it is like having found a luxurious second home where we can be all together. We enjoyed funny stories and hospitality of the owners, Rochelle and Karl and their invisible maybe imaginary kids. The barbecue on the patio looking down the lake and the wine tasting with wood fire in the room operate the magic even for an old couple like us. The town is only 20mins away but we never really went out as we preferred bush walking with out dogs and snuggling in the cottage.

Country Comfort

  • 5 of 5

A warm, cosy and clean little cottage with all the amenities tucked away on a beautiful parcel of land with welcoming and helpful hosts.

We had a wonderful 2 night break here with our small children who loved the tree swing, feeding the sheep at the doorstep and coming face to face with a real life wombat on the driveway. Rochelle and Karl were wonderful hosts and we'd love to thank her for waiting up for us on our late evening arrival. Definitely the place to stay on a visit to Mudgee.
