Overview

About the property

THE GRAINERY@THE HOMESTEAD - A stunning piece of old world charm nestled in a hidden rural valley surrounded by magnificent sandstone escarpment in beautiful KV. (2 night minimum stay)

THE HOMESTEAD is the original farmhouse of the property The Cedars in Barrengarry (Kangaroo Valley) NSW built in 1930, renovated in 1980, and reinvigorated in 2012-16. The original outbuilding and underground well date from late 1800s. The eclectic collection of building material and furnishings include antique, old, new, recycled, and reinterpreted items collected from the property, the district and overseas, particularly featuring cedar furniture where possible. Located on five rural acres including manicured gardens, vegetable and herb gardens, and "girt" by original rainforest featuring century old cedar trees. THE HOMESTEAD is surrounded by Morton National Park, pastoral surrounding rural properties in the foreground and nestled amongst the majestic sandstone escarpment. THE HOMESTEAD is located towards the end of a rural road and provides a quiet, peaceful farm experience; yet is easily accessible only 10 minutes by car to Kangaroo Valley, 35 minutes to Berry and Bowral, and 2 hours from Sydney or Canberra.

THE GRAINERY – a fully self-contained studio cottage with antique queen wrought iron bed, kitchenette, bistro table, sitting area, wood burning heater, ensuite and deck overlooking gardens. The building is made partly of original recycled materials from a demolished building on the property (a grainery) imbibing a blend of old world charm and modern convenience. The furnishings feature cedar antiques. Sleeps 2. $295 p/n. 2 night minimum.

If you would like friends to join you for your stay, we do have BnB style room with private entrance in the main house - THE PEACOCK ROOM. POA.

Accommodation includes breakfast. All the ingredients will be awaiting you so you can prepare it in your own time. Also included is the use of a full size tennis court, outdoor spa with breathtaking views; open air fire circle; access to 5 acres diverse with rainforest, formal and informal gardens, veggie and herb gardens; and developing orchard. For the adventurous, a Parks and Wildlife easement offers a rigorous trek up to wonderful views from the escarpment. Or, if you prefer you can take a gentle walk down the country lane. Enjoy the garden, playing games such as badminton, boule or croquet. If your preference is to spend some quiet times inside, we have numerous board games and reading material.

A visit to THE HOMESTEAD is like stepping into another time, an opportunity to cleanse the spirit and reconnect with the inner quiet, present to the magnificence of natural beauty to awaken the Senses!

Introducing the animals on the farm:

Harry, the dog – is an adorable staffy with heaps of energy and more heart than is imaginable. Our main meeter and greeter, he loves visitors and makes them feel very welcome.

Sheba, the cat – Sheba by name, Queen by nature. She is very shy and only makes cameo appearances.

Polly, Imogen and Isabella, the alpacas – look like moving sculptures on the landscape. Feed them by hand. Polly is the most friendly and is very inquisitive around new people. Isabella is the matriarch and rules the roost which often means nudging Imogen, who is a little more shy, out of the way. Depending on the time of year, they have a thick coat of sought after wool. Other times they are shorn and look a little more silly.

Rajeev, the peacock – struts his stuff from October to February with full plumage, but is always walking around for show. He was a resident of the property before we were and we feel very privileged that he allows us to co-habitate with him. He is the property mascot and much of our décor is inspired by his beauty.

Our chooks, Franca, Josephine, Alexis, Maxine and Christine are back after an extended holiday! They provide you with farm fresh eggs.
