Directions

The house is located on the Bathurst side of Orange, about 7 km before the main town.  As you drive North-West towards Orange from Bathurst you'll see a turn-off on the right-hand side for the Northern Distributor - take this and follow the road along for approximately 2 km until you come to Icely Road which cuts across the road - turn right into Icely Road.  Travel along the road for another 1.5 km, you'll cross a low bridge and as you come up the rise, you'll see a white paling fence on the left-hand side which is our place - you'll see a sign with the number and property name.

"Gorgeous House" This is a great house with lovely grounds, a really wonderful place to stay. We had hours of fun relaxing in the pool and playing tennis as well as getting out and exploring Orange based on the comprehensive local information provided by owners. I would highly recommend a stay here.
