About Randall Cook

We are a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenage boys). We live on the Gold Coast but this farm is the remnants of Randalls parents property which we purchased after they retired from active farming.

Why Randall Cook chose Stanthorpe

It is a beautiful peaceful location, but only a 5 minute drive into town. There is abundant wildlife around and plenty of space. There is an operating orchard across the road which is stunning in spring when the trees are all in flower.

Great location, very cosy.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Kintyre Cottage and would be happy to stay there again. A quaint home on a lovely property. We loved watching the kangaroos and enjoying the winter sunshine. The house was very clean and tidy. The gas heater and electric blankets made for a cosy and comfortable stay. Location is great, a nice sense of space and being in the country while very close to the convenience of town. Very pleasant and easy communication with the owners.

Magical Experience

  • 5 of 5

beautiful position, very cosy and private. On the last day of our trip we woke up to find the entire property coverered in snow! A great experience, would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a very affordable getaway. Only real downside is the lack of a fireplace inside the house, which the gas heater compensated adequately for anyways.

Good property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the stay. Missing power point in bathroom and facility to wash car.

Everithing else was quite good. Liked sunny position for winter, warming kitchen and family room with little use of heater.

This cottage is excellent value for money. We found the house to be impeccably clean. It was spotless! Not a bit of dust or dirt anywhere. It is very baby and toddler friendly - we visited with an 11 mth and 26 mth old. During our stay we felt very safe, secure and "at home" in this cottage. It is a very spacious house with all that you need for a break away provided. Location is great - close to all the attractions of the Stanthorpe region. Thank you Jo and Randall for providing such a pleasant place to stay.
