About this property

Idyllic Farm Cottage With Outdoor Bath Under the Stars

Family-friendly agritourism property in Manildra with hot tub
Outdoor bath with hot running water, fresh air and a view. Lie back listen to the birds settle down for the night, watch the stars come out - and all from the bath! A truly unique and glorious experience.

Idyllic hideaway cottage on the boundary between the native forest and the farm just over half an hour from Orange. Outdoor bath with hot water, fresh air and a view. 3 bedrooms to suit up to 6 people. Fully equipped kitchen. New indoor bathroom. Comfortable living area with wood fire and magnificent view. Bush garden with bonfire area and views across the rolling hills to Mount Canobolas. Explore the forest, walk in the paddocks, or along the creek, see the birds, kangaroos, wallabies, emus, eagles, wombats, and maybe an echidna or a platypus. Enjoy the peace and quiet.

10 minutes to Cudal or Manildra. 30 minutes to vineyards, restaurants, Canowindra, Molong or 40 minutes to Orange.
Dirt road access - both public road and on-farm track, conditions vary on both. 4WD is NOT required.

We cannot take pets.

Sunny house with
1 new Queen bed in master bedroom
1 new Double bed in second bedroom
2 new King singles in third bedroom - can be converted to King Double
All with built in cupboards and plenty of space.

Slow combustion heater.
Can have bonfire in yard between 1st April and 1st October - as long as it is not too dry.

Free to air TV
Good mobile reception - although you can pretend there is none.
Lots of books, boardgames and puzzles.

Kitchen stocked with basics as well as some local goodies and a little produce from the farm vegie garden.

Beautiful walks across the paddocks or through the bush right at your door.
Space for the kids to run around, ride their bikes or just potter about in the yard or the paddock. You can watch from the recliners on the verandah with a coffee or a glass of wine.

Wineries close by and all the other attractions of Cabonne and Orange districts.

Handy location for Orange Food and Wine Festivals, Orange Winter Festival Canowindra Balloon Festival and National Field Day at Borenore.

There are 3 golf courses in Orange, plus courses in other surrounding towns - Canowindra, Molong, Forbes, Parkes, Cowra, all within easy distance.

Nangar National Park is only a short distance away.

We are a working farm, and on the edge of a real forest, so children must be kept in sight at all times to ensure their safety. Although The Rockies is 2km from farm sheds so it is very quiet.

The creek is on the farm, but is 2km from The Rockies house. In wetter periods there are streams closer to the house. Kids or adults can play at building dams, paddle, etc, in any of these, season and safety permitting.

Our weather is between that of Parkes and Orange. It is colder in winter than Sydney - but not as cold as Orange. The house has heating and air conditioning. We are happy to share our pool if you are here in hot weather.

We are in the country, there will always be wildlife, from kangaroos, emus and eagles to snakes, lizards and insects.

We occasionally have floods which prevent access to the farm. If this occurs and your booking has to be cancelled, we will refund the full cost of the booking, except the Stayz fee, or you can change your booking to another date.

5/5 Excellent

A wonderful peaceful getaway
What a wonderful property with a great host who went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. My children loved spending time by the creek with the farm dogs and wandering for hours around the farm. I would recommend it to anyone who needs a break from suburbia and the noise of neighbours!

5/5 Excellent

The perfect break
Sally and Jono were lovely, the property was amazing. It was a perfect break away from busy life. Bon fires, bush, and the magical bath making sunsets and sunrises all the more magical. Definitely coming back!

Bath under the stars
Great set up, Great bath Great hilltop position

5/5 Excellent

Amazing getaway
This place is perfect to get away and enjoy nature. The outdoor bath was definitely a winner, watching the sunset while having a soak. We then spent the nights outside next to the fire watching the stars. Lots to do around the area also or a perfect spot to stay in and relax. Sally was an amazing host. Would recommend to anyone to come here. We will be back!
