We own a small organic winery situated on 40 acres of bushland only 20 minutes from Kangaroo Valley , 25 minutes to Berry and 20 minutes from Nowra. There are natural gullies, bush and paddocks alongside the vineyard which makes for many lovely tranquil spots to relax or explore. You can wander around the property and the vineyard, feed the chickens, collect the eggs and throw in a yabbie pot in the warmer months and see what you catch. This is a quiet setting with the options to sleep in, read a good book, take a bush walk or head off to the wonderful places to see around the Shoalhaven area. Our accommodation offers the opportunity to escape technology for a while with no phones, internet or TV in the rooms.
There is a large grassy BBQ area close by your room so you can enjoy your evening meal with a glass of wine or port without leaving the property. We are a family friendly property with many interesting things for your children to see and do. If the grapes are on, watching the children's faces as they pick their own bunch from the vines, is priceless. No Grapes, then we have chickens, sheep and ducks to enjoy.Our two dogs are very social and love to play and interact with guests. This is your chance to escape the suburbs, technology and enjoy a rural setting not too far from the city.We include breakfast provisions for your stay however , if you would like to include some extras, we can organise an organic breakfast basket, BBQ and Salad packs , Devonshire Teas and Cheese Platters. Make use of our picnic basket and throw rugs to find a special spot to enjoy a meal on the property or at one of the many places we are happy to recommend .
We are only a 30 minute drive to the beaches of Gerringong and Shoalhaven Heads or you can visit the fantastic Fleet Air Arm Museum at HMAS Albatross, go to Hanging Rock lookout or visit Shoalhaven Zoo. We are also very close to Arthur Boyd's Bundanon Estate where you can tour the art studio or time your visit to coincide with one of the fantastic events held there regularly through the year.

Cooler nights you can enjoy your own wood fire heater, making your cabin warm and cosy or you can use the fire pit near the cellar door and toast marshmallows. If you really enjoy the fun aspects of camping ( but happy to not have a tent) then make use of the camp oven and waffle irons and be surprised by the incredible night sky.
The cellar door is open by appointment and in the summer those staying with us can enjoy the cool inground cellar to taste our organic wines and port. In Winter, the pot belly stove is perfect to warm up around. A selection of my favourite local products are available along a small range of relishes and chutneys made here with our homegrown summer produce.
