Overview

About the property

(Visit melross farm for more information

The Rye House is a luxury self-contained farm house set on the historic property "Melross" in Kangaroo Valley. Situated on 200 acres, Melross is widely considered one of Kangaroo Valley's most beautiful properties. Breathtaking views from the house look out across the hills into the spectacular cliff escarpment that surrounds the entire property.

There are so many ways to enjoy your break at The Rye House on Melross - take long walks around the property and down to the river, wander across the lawn to collect some freshly-laid eggs from the chickens, lounge by the swimming pool and sip on a latte from the Aldi Expressi coffee machine, create a feast on the barbeque and enjoy your meal with a glass of local wine, cuddle up by the fireplace, or just sit back and watch the animals graze and soak up the stunning views from the veranda. Come evening time, there's nothing better than a home-cooked dinner enjoyed outside on the deck gazing at the perfect valley stars.

However they choose to spend their time all our guests say the same thing: we never want to leave!

Only 5 minutes drive and you are in the charming township of Kangaroo Valley, which features the lively Friendly Inn and a select choice of cafes and restaurants.

Please note that there is a two night minimum stay.

The House

You will instantly fall in love with The Rye House on Melross. The house features generous veranda's, perfect for breakfasts overlooking the stunning Valley.

The Rye House has five bedrooms - two with queen size beds, two with double beds and one with two king single beds - and two bathrooms. We also have a porta cot and highchair for guests with a baby. The house is perfect for families or a weekend away with friends.

The open plan, air-conditioned dining and lounge area creates a perfect area for socialising or sitting back and watching the large-screen television. For those who enjoy their cooking, the well-equipped kitchen will help you cook up a storm!

The outside deck overlooking the swimming pool is perfect for dining day or night. At night, our guests love to have a candlelit dinner on the deck while marvelling at the Valley stars.

Surrounding areas

At Melross you will feel as though you have the world to yourself, yet you are only 5 minutes drive or a 25 minute walk from the town where you can enjoy browsing the shops and watching the world go by in one of the charming cafes.

If you're feeling active, the Valley features a golf course, horse riding trails, tennis courts and canoe hire. Further afield, you can enjoy the township of Berry (only 1/2 hour away) and the scenic beauty of Jervis Bay where you may be lucky enough to spot a dolphin! In the other direction, you can enjoy the majestic falls and two scenic bushwalks at the Fitzroy Falls national park (15 minutes drive).

A piece of paradise - a dream come true

  • 5 of 5

Nothing could compare to the smiles and happiness my family experienced during our recent stay. One of the best holidays our family were lucky enough to experience - so peaceful, so beautiful - everything one could wish for. We really enjoyed the long walks - each day discovering something new!! Collecting fresh eggs which I'm sure my grandchildren will never forget, watching the rabbits hop around. Such a lovely experience, we did not want to leave. John and Terrene were a pleasure to deal with. We all can't wait to come back again!!! THANK YOU!!

Perfect family escape

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house in a beautiful setting. We stayed with three families and four kids and there is plenty of room for everyone. The house was perfectly equipped. Unfortunately it was already a bit too cold for the swimming pool.

I was hoping for a few more farm animals for the kids to pet and feed but we had great fun with the chooks.

Great family weekend

  • 4 of 5

This was the second year our family stayed at the Rye House. Perfect for a family get together. Last year we stayed in the winter and loved the open fire, this time it was very hot and the grandkids loved the pool. Hope to go back again next year. Also the chooks were a hit with the little ones.

Beautiful property!! So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a stunning property! It is magic as soon as you turn off the main road. Complete privacy despite there being several properties on the land. Summer must be stunning, with an inviting pool to dive into. But even in Winter it was so beautiful and very cosy inside with a fantastic stove and plenty of heating throughout the house. Just to let you know that despite the house having 2 bathrooms, one of them is an ensuite, so in reality the 4 other bedrooms were sharing 1 bathroom, which was intimate to say the least. But other than that we wanted for nothing. A lovely house. A beautiful stay.

Fantastic country getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house, very comfortable with everything you could ask for in a holiday property. We loved the chickens and wandering around the lovely grounds. It's very peaceful and the perfect place to recharge the batteries. We'll definitely be back.
