About Anne Thackway

We have been operating a farmstay and bed and breakfast since 1995.

As we sold our farm the farmstay no longer operates of course, but the habit continues. So now just a B&B at our new address.

Have been profiled very favorably on TV and the press several times.

So far we have hosted more than 35 different nationalities.

Many guests keep on returning and .... many many friendships have developed with guests over this period of time

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

It is like staying in a country homestead with amazing vistas to the east over farmland and national the peace and quietness of rural living..... yet with city only approximately 5 minutes drive from Armidale.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with our two kids (3yo and 4mo). We also had my mother and her sister stay. The location is great, comfortable and very modern and relaxing accommodation.

There are a few areas of concern that have made us think about this property again if travelling with our young children. For example if sharing with others not from family. If travelling as a couple or with older kids (teenagers +) then this place would be great !!

Anne and Mike are warm and welcoming and the breakfast is enough, only if it is continental.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, Lovely people and a truly beautiful setting. I couldn't have asked for better hospitality and a nicer place to stay. Our room was delightful, spacious, spotless and had everything that you could possibly need. Breakfast was delicious, with a wide range of treats. It was great opportunity to meet the other guests, talk to Anne and Mike about the history of the area and get some local insights into where to visit and what to do. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a great weekend!
