Rokbara Cottage - a farmstay getaway

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

a gorgeous 1 bedroom cottage overlooking the beautiful Bara Valley

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

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 recharge 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..

Please note if you are wishing to bring a pet, we ask that all animals are kept in the enclosed cottage paddock and not allowed inside the cottage, if you wish to have your animal in the cottage we will require an additional $50 for cleaning the cottage once you depart.

Cute and charming in a beautiful part of the world.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay with Rochelle and Karl, the sheep and newly arrived lambs. The property has a wonderful hill to climb where you will get a great view of the surrounding country. Far away from it all with all the mod cons needed for a comfy stay however, make sure to bring all your food etc. as its a long way to the shops. Make sure you get good directions as the road is unsealed and be aware of wildlife if travelling at night.

Lovely, peacefull stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 7 month old son, kelpie and I stayed at Rokbara over a cold weekend in July. The cottage is really cosy but functional and allowed us to curl up by the fire and catch up on some much needed sleep. Mudgee is fairly close by (35 mins) which we took advantage of by doing some cellar door visits and lunch through the Saturday. We had a great time here and recommend to anyone who wants to unplug and get some quite.

Wonderful Cottage With Stunning Views and Lovely Hosts!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Rochelle and Karl for an amazing stay!! What a beautiful cottage and a beautiful area you guys have. The cottage was perfect for everything we needed it for, great distance to Mudgee for wineries and activities, and we loved having a few beers up on the hill at sunset! And the pizza and wine we ordered were so delicious! My only wish is that we had a bigger car/4x4/jeep so that we could of been a bit speedier on the dirt roads down to the house! But other than that was perfect - lovely to meet you both and will absolutely be recommending you to all of my friends. (p.s Patch is probably my favourite dog I have ever met!). Wishing you all the best, Rosy & James.

Peaceful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful farm cottage. We enjoyed the stay very much. Wonderful weekend away, wish we had few more days to spend.

Rochelle and Karl were very welcoming and hospitable. Karl took me through my first ever 4WDing up the hill and my daughter still talks about the planets she saw from Karls’ telescope.

It was one of the great experiences of a country farm and surroundings far from the hustle and bustle of the city. We are thinking of going back again..

Karl and Rochelle are a great host and great couple. Thanks for staying up late waiting for us.

I recommend everyone to try this once. All the best to Rochelle and Karl. Hope you get to build that dream cottage at the top of the Hill.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a beautiful review, we loved having you and the family stay with us. The 4WD experience was so much fun and we were so thrilled to share our farm and star-gazing with you all. Look forward to seeing you again, and thank you again for staying with us here at Rokbara Cottage. Karl & Rochelle

Relaxing, Peaceful and Fresh

We had a lovely time staying at Rokbara! Rochelle and Karl were fantastic hosts, giving us space yet helped us when we needed it. The setting is just peaceful yet not far away from cafes, wineries and local activities. Highly recommend a stay at Rokbara!
