Restored 90 year old farm building separate from main house overlooking the magnificent McPherson Ranges and Mount Barney on a 20 acre farm block with cows, calves, two Percheron draught horses and many different species of birds. Great place to stay if you are walking up Mt Barney, Mt May or Mt Maroon - 40 mins drive north. We can help you find somewhere local to walk or cycle too. The cottage can accommodate 3 people using a queen bed and a trundle bed (extra $15/night).
Our 20 acre block is just a couple of minutes walk from a small rural village in northern NSW and no more than 2 hrs south of Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Being in the country we don't have access to all of the telecommunication providers that the majority of Australians have in the city and living on the coast. We don't have access to Optus or Vodafone, for example. However, we are served by Telstra so if you have a Telstra account you can use your mobile phone, laptop, ipad here. We have access to a wi-fi - ask for the password (charges may apply). Our advice is to disconnect from the city and reconnect with the country.
You can access the great outdoors - all of our paddocks and the Woodenbong Common. Great for dog(s)!

We are happy to provide you with tourist information to get the best from your stay with us. Happy to draw you a mud map so you can drive back to Brisbane or the Gold Coast a different way from the way you came.
Please be aware that we are served only by Telstra if you are bringing your phone, ipad or laptop. We have a wood heater for warmth; off-the-grid solar power for electricity; gas for hot water and the cooktop; septic toilet system and tank water. Dogs who accompany their owners are not allowed inside the cottage.
With courtesy and care towards the building you are using and the people and animals you are sharing space with.
Whilst we are dog(s) friendly I'm sorry that we can't allow your dog(s) inside the cottage. They are welcome to stay on the deck or in your car at night.
I am a retired primary school teacher. I enjoy playing golf and travelling in Australia and overseas. I live with my husband, Dean, who has a disability. We have been married for nearly 20 years. Dean loves horses. About 16 years ago he bought a couple of Percheron heavy horses which he likes to drive about the property. Dean also makes heavy horse harness. He also collects horse drawn farm machinery and Australian Light Horse gear. He is passionate about what he does and loves to share his passion with our guests. We try to live a simple life - we have solar power, septic tanks and tank water - and enjoy the natural world around us.
