Ideal for a romantic interlude, escape the city or just for a peaceful and relaxing country stay in a very comfortable, private and cosy studio in the beautiful O'Connell Valley, a 2 1/2 hour drive from Sydney. Good access to many interesting places.
Spacious, private, clean and comfortable modern self contained studio (The New Lock Up) is a separate dwelling located on the site of the Old O'Connell Police Station (Circa 1865). Enjoy breakfast overlooking the garden with sunlight streaming in or just sit and enjoy the peaceful surrounds while watching a variety of beautiful birds in the garden. The studio is perfect for couples to curl up on a sofa with a glass of local wine or a cuppa. When you aren't out visiting the many interesting places you can relax and watch a movie, play a game of trivial pursuit or just read a good book etc. The studio is set up to accommodate couples, however a fold up bed can be provided if separate beds are required?
New fully equipped kitchen with fridge, kettle, toaster, convection microwave, ironing facilities, hair dryer. large screen television, DVD player, dvds, books, magazines and board games. Extremely comfortable queen bed with quality bedlinen and electric blanket for those cool nights. There is also reverse cycle air con to provide year round comfort (warm in winter and cool in summer). Enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch with a mug of Fish River Roaster coffee at the O'Connell cafe, open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Walk/run or drive to the Historic O'Connell Pub for a cool drink and a great lunch or dinner. If you prefer to eat at home there is a convection microwave or Weber BBQ. Just a 10 minute drive to the oldest inland town of Bathurst provides a large variety of restaurants, shops and many interesting and historical places to visit. The picturesque town of Oberon is a short drive and a visit to Mayfield gardens or Jenolan Caves are a must?
Interakcija s gostima
The studio is set back from the main house, (old police station) however use the same driveway. You would have complete privacy and be left to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the new lock up! I like to meet my guests on arrival and am available if guests require any information etc.
Where to eat
The O'Connell Cafe opens Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays where you can enjoy a great breakfast or lunch with local Fish River Roasters coffee. I suggest you try some of the delicious home made cakes/desserts with your coffee.
Lunch and dinner is available at the-Historic O'Connell or Tarana pubs.
A 10-15 minute drive to Bathurst will give you a wide range of cafes, restaurants and hotels serving a variety of food and drink!
Please be mindful of water usage as there is no town water and water is from rainwater tanks.
Smoking is NOT allowed in the studio, however outside is fine. Please ensure electric blanket and reverse cycle air conditiiner are turned off when not in use and before vacating!
No illicit drugs or parties allowed.
Please do not bring pets.

I enjoy walking playing tennis, reading, cooking, travelling and spending time with family and friends. I love to travel and am interested in meeting people, learning about their history and culture, therefore I try to go to different places every year. The places that I have enjoyed most have been Turkey, France (southern) and Maritius. I love to read, mainly historical fiction and enjoy going to the movies. I enjoy all kinds of food, especially Thai, Indian, French, Italian and Greek food.
I love to meet people and enjoy having visitors. I want them to experience all the wonderful things in country living, whether that's just relaxing, siteseeing, cycling
bushwalking or just enjoying the aboundng wildlife.
My motto in life is "to live life to the fullest and enjoy every day".
