Camphill Cottage

“Camphill Cottage” as it has been known in the district since 1860 - is not just a farm stay - it’s an echo of a time zone - one of confident simplicity, dramatic landscapes and birdsong chorus. Situated a five minute drive from the cafes, antique shops and old pubs of historic Rylstone, it is the ideal option for those seeking peace, privacy, space and authenticity.

This charming, rustic cottage offers two queen size bedrooms and a large mezzanine loft with two single beds (sleeping a total of six). All beds are endowed with quality manchester and electric blankets. The large living area is equipped with a cosy wood fire and reverse cycle air conditioner. A glass enclosed verandah on the northern side looks out over a large dam to the mountains and at sunset will still the buzziest mind. The eastern verandah looks toward original haysheds and horse stables from a bygone era. 

The cottage is situated on a horse establishment where horses graze the green paddocks bound by post and rail fencing. The property dates back to the 1860s and had it’s origins as a blacksmith’s shop forging horse shoes, farm implements, carriage wheels and tools necessary for life in the Central West. The original stone “blacksmith’s forge” still stands to this day located on the 60 acre property.

The gardens are a mixture of native and deciduous trees and plants providing shade and habitat for native fauna such as wombats, wallabies and native birdlife.  The autumn colours are magniicent in traffic stopping reds, rusts, pinks, magenta and golds.

We pride ourselves on making all efforts for a safe and happy stay for our guests.  To that end we strictly observe the safety of children.  This is a farm with dams that are unfenced.  Children are welcome, however they must be supervised to ensure their safety.  This includes around the fire, and around the house yard, incase they venture off toward dams.  Dogs are welcome but are strictly by negociation.  We love our dogs and understand that others are the same, but we ask that owners make sure they are not on the furniture or beds.  There is ample space for dogs to enjoy the outdoors, and we ask guests to observe the safety of their dogs as this is a farm and farm animals can become frightenend if dogs chase or bark at them.  Usually common sense is all that is needed to avoid any mishaps or accidents.  A cleaning fee of $50 will be charged for guests with dogs.
