Beautiful setting and very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this property and won’t be our last. It’s a great place to escape the city and disconnect. Excellent for recharging the batteries. The “shed” is very well equipped. You only need to bring your clothes and food. Leigh and John have done a great job in designing and decorating this place.

Very relaxing and private

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here mid winter and found the place to be a perfect city getaway as faraway from the rat race as you could imagine yet only a short drive from Sydney. It certainly has a rustic charm but is well appointed. Plenty of heating options and no shortage of hot water. I even relearned my firemaking skills with the wonderful open fireplace. It is easy to find with Leigh's great instructions but very secluded and private. Our small dogs enjoyed the paddocks for playing around and the unusual scents left behind by the nocturnal wildlife including wombats and echidnas. We were very comfortable and left feeling totally relaxed. A bonus feature here is no 4G mobile service and no internet which is a great way to detox!

We look forward to our next visit.

You won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The Old Dairy was a perfect spot for a weekend away. Leigh & John have done a great job. It's clean, comfortable and very stylish, with all the mod cons in a rural setting. We loved the peace and quiet (no phones and no internet), and walks around the area where we spotted wombats, echidnas, wallabies, a blue-tongue lizard and oodles of birds. The outdoor shower was also a lot of fun! All in all we had a great stay. You'll be so relaxed you won't want to leave...

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented both the OKD and the OKD Shed. This was great as we had a large group.

These quaint houses were clean, roomy and had everything we needed. The presentation was warm and the gardens are lovely.

Anybody looking for a relaxing weekend in the Valley will love their stay at the OKD and/or the OKD Shed!

Best in the Valley

  • 5 of 5

Excellent. Quality fittings and comfortable. Loved sitting under the stars around the fire pit. Beautiful , landscaped gardens with mature trees. Designer rustic in a dairy! We've stayed in many places in the valley and this is tops for a private country getaway. The detail and love that has gone into this place is clear. The secret spots and recommendations from our host Leigh were right on the money.
