Mansfield is just 3 hours North of Sydney, 1 & 1/2 hours North of Newcastle, all on tar sealed roads.
We are only 30 mins from the Barrington Tops World Heritage Wilderness.
The property has been owned and operated by four generations of the Perram Family, originally operating as a Dairy and Beef Farm, from the 1800s. On display at Mansfield, is a Christmas card from my Great Grandfather & Great Grandmother for Christmas 1913.
In September 2002, the Cottage was converted into Holiday Accommodation and enjoys a very successful role in the local tourism industry.
Although Mansfield is just 100m above sea level, the contrasts of the seasons are tremendous, from a summer high average of 24.5c (maximums of +30c) down to a cool winter low average of minus 2c (minimums of below -4c can occur).
As you can imagine, with these changes the seasons of Autumn & Spring are fantastic.
The comfortable, traditional, 3 bedroom farmhouse cottage is located in the picturesque Barrington River Valley and just 150m from the Barrington River. This river is well know for it's canoeing, swimming, fishing and tubing activities, as well as a great location for bird & fauna watching - seeking the shy and elusive platypus is very popular.
Modern conveniences (sorry no dishwasher or clothes dryer), together with reverse cycle air-conditioning and slow combustion fire ensure your all season comfort.
We comfortably sleep 7 (2 x 2 Doubles - 3 x Singles).
Just bring your own food and drinks, remember all linen, towels and even soap are provided - with our fully equipped kitchen and laundry, what could be easier.
