Summer Holiday Farmstay NSW Booking Now

If you'd like to book in for a great summer holiday, our farmstay (just 3 hours north of Sydney, and even closer if you're on the Central Coast or Newcastle) gives you great hosted farm activities, has a solar heated pool and dam (with pedalboats) and is just 20 minutes to the beach if you'd like to head to the surf too. 

Best Farmstays in Australia - thanks QANTAS!

So great to be included as one of the best farmstays in Australia in this latest guide by QANTAS . Farmstays from NSW , Queensland , Tasmania and Victoria are included in the list.  Farmstays are a great way to get back in touch with nature !  You will laugh lots, relax and learn too! 

The guide has been put together by QANTAS Travel Insider and you can read about the farmstays here:

Pony rides and horse play for farmstay guests

Our pony Soda and thoroughbred Hollywood are available for hand-led pony rides for any children staying with us as farmstay guests. Learn how to groom, muck out paddocks and enjoy a hand-led ride as part of your farmstay. If the kids aren't into horses, there is also a chance to go on a quadbike trailer ride and there are plenty of ride-on toys like kid-size John Deere tractors and more. If you'd like to go on a trail ride during your stay, there is Clarendon Horse Riding not far from here and also beach horse rides available down Forster way.

Using Sawdust for Veggie Garden pathways

The veggie patch is about 8 years old now and every few years we refresh the paths with free sawdust from the mill. We use sawdust as it's nice and soft underfoot, and is a snake and snail deterrent.

Originally we put down layers of cardboard to stop weeds getting through, but these have well and truly rotted through so this year we're putting down some weedmat underneath instead.

Book in for a Cosy, Eco-friendly, Fun & Relaxing Farmstay - Just 3hrs Easy Drive from Sydney

Today it finally feels like Autumn has arrived...just a little late seeing we're well into April!  Autumn and winter on the farm offer a refreshing getaway, crisp mornings and nights around the campfire or stay toasty around the fireplace in your cottage or the farmhouse.

Autumn and winter involve lots of activity on the farm, there are animals to care for ( alpacas, sheep, goats, miniature galloway cows, horses and chickens), as well as lots to involve yourself if you're into herbs, gardens, bushtucker and sustainable living - or you can just relax with a book.

Come for a tour or a farmstay, here's why...

We recently had a visit from travel writer Carla Grossetti, and the truth is, we're not a fancy resort or a super luxurious architect-designed farmstay, nor a place built off the back of investors who can sink in money to a venture, or who have an off-farm income to support it. And that's okay! Because what we are is one little family, just doing stuff (and that means you can too!).

In Carla's piece she wrote:

New kids obstacle course opens in time for school holiday fun at Nabiac near Forster

Uh oh, what does watching Ninja Warrior do to farm kids when combined with their farmer father's love of building things... welcome to the new o-BEE-stacle course!

Opened just in time for the school holidays, the low level course challenges balance, strength and patience for kids. And kids need lots of small challenges in their lives to help them grow and feel good about themselves.

Free Carpet Clean for your Car for all Farmstay Guests...thanks to our crack team of Chickens!

The family road trip up the Legendary Pacific Coast...it's what memories are made of.

Often guests arrive at the farmstay with their car's carpet covered in food thanks to the kids in the backseat. But our empowered chickens are on the case and have recently launched their own free carpet cleaning service for all overnight farmstay guests!
