About The Homestead

A large modern house set provides wonderful views of the surrounding paddocks and countryside with roaming horses and wildlife around.

This unique country getaway offers an exclusive stay, perfect for a group of friends for a celebration and for families looking for a retreat with the children and pets who are also welcome to stay.

Flexible accommodation is available across two floors with a combination of twins and doubles plus a large family dormitory style room at the very top!

The owners welcome you to meet their friendly horses and enjoy the stable yard community, which makes this accommodation so very different, with the working stable yard across from the property within the estate. Should you be keen to don on the riding hat and look to enjoy a hack, arrangements can be made at a nearby school, please ask us for more details.
