A gem away from everything

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location away from everything, yet handy to Mudgee itself and all its attractions. The house is very comfortable and clean, with air conditioning and a fire place for those cold winter nights. Access to the house is through a well maintained unsealed road. If travelling at dusk or at night, need to drive extra carefully as you will encounter a large number of kangaroos in the area. Will certainly come back to Bara guesthouse.

Lovely property.

  • 5 of 5

We all really enjoyed our stay at Old Bara. Sally and Richard were very accommodating, even leaving us a cake tin and candles to make my daughter a birthday cake. The kids loved riding their bikes around the property, we loved relaxing by the fire and the dog loved the yard and barking at the cows. We'd love to come back!

Warm inviting home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at this warm and inviting home and loved all it had to offer. Beds were so very warm and comfortable. Kitchen had all you needed and a great undercover BBQ as well. Our dogs loved the fenced garden and the lovely walks on the property. Whilst it was a little way out of Mudgee we really enjoyed the peace and quiet and cooking at home with the stunning platter from the home grown grass fed beed, yummo. The outlook from the home is also stunning.
