Avaleigh Elms Farmstay

Bedrooms 2
Property type farmhouse


About the property

Avaleigh Elms is a well appointed cosy country farm stay cottage with two bedrooms (1 queen and 2 singles). Guests can self cater or come down to the main house for an excellent home cooked breakfast (extra charge).

Meet the resident feature creatures, namely the donkeys, horses, sheep, hens and alpacas on our farm which is in the middle of picturesque prime grazing country.

Just 20 minutes from the wonderful Mayfield Garden with its Water Garden now open all year, except over Christmas.

Caving at Jenolan, Wombeyan or Abercrombie adjacent to the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, trout fishing, mountain bike riding, fossicking, mushrooming and blackberry picking (seasonal), horse riding nearby and bush walking at magnificent Kanangra Boyd National Park.

Our countryside has gentle undulations, perfect for walking out to discover many species of parrots and birds inhabiting the large stands of eucalypts. Village pubs offer hearty country food and a warm welcome.

Avaleigh Elms is two hours drive to the wine and food regions of Orange and Mudgee, 11/2 hours to the town of Goulburn and 2 ½ hours to Canberra on the Tablelands Way.

The property is situated 1250 metres/4000 feet above sea level on the Tablelands Way near the historic town of Oberon.

Don and Jenn are waiting to give you a warm country welcome and advise that Avaleigh Elms now welcomes well behaved pets.

Bring your own horse!

Guests are welcome to bring their own horses to ride in the adjacent State Forest. There are lots of tracks and it is almost impossible to get lost. View the wildlife from horseback in the cool pine forest. Perfect in any weather!

We have secure paddocks and a big yard on water for visiting horses.

Beautiful country escape

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful visit. Well equipped, cosy cottage in beautiful countryside. The children loved stroking and feeding the animals. Plenty of space to explore on the farm and good location to visit the Jenolan caves and other local attractions. Very hospitable hosts and we look forward to visiting again.

Fantastic family friendly farmstay

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the well maintained farm with its friendly animals and bush walks to the cosy, clean and comfy cottage was an absolute treat for me any family (kids aged 8 and 5). We can't wait to come back to see how the new lamb is thriving.

Cosy cottage in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a cold afternoon to find this quaint little cottage had a fireplace! It was well-appointed and within half hour of arriving were welcomed with a lovely home-baked loaf of bread and extra bedding. Jenn was most generous with her time, introducing the kids to the farm animals. Needless to say we all had a comfortable stay and loved every minute of it!

Let it snow!

  • 5 of 5

We planned to book this accommodation so we could explore the area and visit Jenolan Caves. We were very lucky to have it snow as we arrived. The roads were closed when driving in but we had a 4WD and our hosts Kerry & Brendan were very helpful. We had such a lovely time. Brendan took us out for a drive and the animals came to visit every day. Our 5 year old loved it! We loved the fire, electric blankets and no phone reception!

Great for whole family no matter what age.

  • 4 of 5

Our teenage kids and us took time off our very busy lives to enjoy the friendly animals, the serenity of the location and each other. Fire at night was lovely too. Recommend.
