The GateHouse is a unique rural location offering quality self-contained accommodation for couples, friends or families. Set at the entrance of a 50 acre cattle farm located between Gerringong & Berry and only 10mins to the beautiful South Coast beaches. It is a cosy 2bed cottage with 2king beds or 4singles, reverse cycle air conditioning, slow combustion wood fire, self contained kitchen with full size fridge, a huge covered deck & bbq, outdoor heaters and overlooking a rare remnant rainforest.
Tucked just inside the gate near the cattle yards and tractor shed of our 50 acre cattle farm is the 2 bedroom cottage with a large covered deck area & overlooking a pretty remnant rainforest. The bedrooms have king beds (both can be split in 2) the beds are made up with quality bed linen and we provide bath towels lotions and potions, tea, coffee and a few staples . We can also accommodate a horse in an adjacent small paddock for a small extra charge (you would need your own insurance) however we cannot take in other pets
You will have the cottage to your self
We live at the main house 1 km up the hill, our shed is close by the Gate House so there will be comings and goings from time to time.
Children are welcome to observe & interact with the cattle under our supervision.
We can offer assistance & recommendations of things to see and do, book restaurants ahead for you etc. We respect your privacy and will stay out of the way as much as possible

Bernard & Helen moved from Sydney in 2011 and have been on a sharp learning curve ever since. Bernard has spent his time learning the tricks to managing soil & growing out beef cattle for market, renovating a building my extensive vegetable garden and chicken house. While my interior design business sits in the background I have been honing my cleaning, bed making, cooking and gardening skills (luckily, a nurse in an earlier career)
Bernard & I have renovated the 2 separate accommodations on the property and are happily sharing these with others (that's You) we feel so lucky to be able to wake up in our beautiful sounding views it would be a shame not to share.
We love travelling especially in Europe, read novels as and when we can. I do Pilates, walk and go to the gym often, am nearly always on a diet (5/2 is our preference!!) because of my love of cooking, eating and a couple of red wines. Currently I head up SlowFood Saddleback (not slow cooking) which is an international organisation that started in Italy promoting good, clean and fair food for all. We both participate in the local Foxground Landcare & Bernard has become a volunteer fireman and a member of the Shoalhaven beef association.
we hope to see you at EagleViewPark soon
Helen & Bernard
