Privacy close to Canberra

Lovely manor with owners personal touches. We were very comfortable and looked after well. Beautiful place close enough to Canberra, but far enough out for peace and quiet.

5/5 Excellent

Home away from home

The homestead was a lovely place to stay. It was like being at home. I loved that there was a generous breakfast selection, including fresh juice, T2 teas and crumpets. The homestead was warm on arrival and there was also a roaring fire in the sitting room as well as complimentary port to enjoy. Our room was warm, as well there was a heater and 'mink' blankets just in case you were chilly.

Pros: I liked that it was far enough away from the city, but close enough to all of the attractions we wanted to see. (approx 20 minute drive to city)

Location: We drove to the attractions in Canberra, inc National Gallery and War Memorial
