Tucked away in private gardens is Thistledown Cottage which is ideal for two and accommodates four. Complimentary breakfast is provided for the first two days. It is fully self-contained with a spa bathroom, cosy fire-lit lounge, one double and one twin share bedroom. It also has a verandah and a deck with outdoor settings and a barbecue to help you enjoy the majestic view of Mt Barney. Guests can play and relax with a game of boules or croquet.

High Tea is available in the Rose Garden and/or guests may come inside to the Homestead to enjoy a sumptuous Federation style decor from a bygone era. Here they can dress up for a candlelit or ‘themed’ dinner served with delicious food and wine.

In this peaceful and restorative setting, the hosts also offer life coaching and residential life focus retreats.
