We spent 4 days at Avaleigh Elms with our 5 & 6 yr old sons. The cottage was the perfect size for our family. Well equiped kitchen and BBQ as well as a lovely log fire for the cold afternoons and nights.
We loved visiting the very friendly sheep, alpacas and donkeys each day also feeding the hens and collecting eggs. The cottage is perfectly located away from the main house so we didn't feel like we were disturbing our hosts when kids want to be kids.
Close by was horse riding, fossicking, fishing and Jenolan Caves.
Jen and Don were great hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Thanks for a lovely long weekend.

We enjoyed our time here! It was sooo good! The hosts were amazing! Checked in with us both days to make sure we were comfortable and had our keys to get in!! They even put in more firewood and got the fireplace ready for us the next day!
The scenery was breathtaking! There is absolutely nil nada zero nothing negative to say about this place!
Thank you so much! Btw, we loved the nibbles! Wish there was more!!!

Enjoyed our stay at the farm cottage. It's simple, well kept and private. Which is all that we needed for our weekend away. Our host Jen was very welcoming and we appreciated the lovely touches of farm eggs and a baked slice on arrival. The friendly farm animals were a bonus as well.

We planned to book this accommodation so we could explore the area and visit Jenolan Caves. We were very lucky to have it snow as we arrived. The roads were closed when driving in but we had a 4WD and our hosts were very helpful. We had such a lovely time. Our 5 year old loved it! We loved the fire, electric blankets and no phone reception!

Great for whole family no matter what age.
Our teenage kids and us took time off our very busy lives to enjoy the friendly animals, the serenity of the location and each other. Fire at night was lovely too. Recommend.

Really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this lovely little cottage. Kids enjoyed meeting the farm animals in their setting. Log fire at night a treat.

LOVELY PEACEFUL COTTAGE
We had a fantastic stay... too short! Cottage was comfortable and well equipped and I actually enjoyed washing up with views from the window of rolling hills, beautiful countryside and farm animals. Owners were very accommodating. Great place to relax.
Donna, Sept 2015 November 4, 2016
The most amazing place!
We took our 2 dogs to Avaleigh Elms for the weekend and had the most magical time. The cabin is a romantic dream come true with a log fire and cosy blankets and it was impressively clean and homely. We were lucky enough to have some snow during our stay which made our experience complete! The dogs had an amazing time walking the hills and fields and making friends with the cows, horses, donkeys, etc and we had a fantastic time watching the families of roos hopping across snow covered fields, taking photos of the wombats and enjoying the farm fresh eggs and delicious baked treats generously supplied by the very friendly owners. We want to go back there already!!

We loved staying at the farm.
An escape to the middle of nowhere (but close enough to the Caves and the Blue Mountains) was exactly what we needed. The cottage is well maintained and felt like a home away from home. Jennifer and her husband are lovely hosts. Thank you so much for our stay.
Sarah, April 2016 November 4, 2016
We enjoyed our stay.... very much.
Kids fell in love with all the animals. Beautiful sceneries and nice, clean accommodation. The owners were great. We want to go back again.

Had a wonderful visit. Well equipped, cosy cottage in beautiful countryside. The children loved stroking and feeding the animals. Plenty of space to explore on the farm and good location to visit the Jenolan caves and other local attractions. Very hospitable hosts and we look forward to visiting again.

We walked in and felt immediately at home. The cottage is warm, inviting and homely. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and beauty of this place.

My son, Chris said we were being “swallowed up by the hills” as we drove through the grand landscape. We arrived at the cottage which was cheerful, clean and cosy, with a fire going. We had everything we needed – thanks heaps.
The animals checked in on us through the kitchen window and were friendly and enjoyed being patted, to our delight.
Ian, Melinda, Christopher and Rocky January 20, 2018
Once again, a lovely stay. The week went really fast and we were pleased we got the cold nights to enjoy the fire.
Loved the walks around your property and the animals are always ready for a pat.
Couldn’t think of a nicer place to relax.
Donna and John January 20, 2018
We have had a wonderful relaxing stay at Avaleigh Elms with our family. The cottage is so cosy and warm and had everything we needed. We loved the outdoor wood BBQ and used it every day. The walks around the property were great and we saw heaps of kangaroos, a deer and an echidna up on the hill, which has an amazing view.
Norm and Debbie January 20, 2018
Thank you for a wonderful experience. The kids now love the country. Mission successful! So good to leave the city and enjoy natural bushland surrounds.
Sophia and Kyle January 20, 2018
Thanks for sharing a piece of paradise with us. The kids loved feeding the animals and waking up to the cows talking to each other in the morning. We loved snuggling on the couch in front of the wood fire crackling away.
A great break away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney life. We will be back!
Kirsty and Colin, Liam and Jake January 20, 2018
We’ve all had a lovely time here at the cottage. During the hot days, we headed to the swimming pool and had lunch at the local produce café. Delicious!
Your animals have been so friendly and our girls enjoyed waking up and going outside to say hi to them. Thanks for your hospitality. We’ll certainly visit again!

Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend. The peace and quiet was a sublime break from Sydney. We’ll see you again!

So good to stay here and be able to walk around the farm. The scenery is beautiful and we were thrilled to see so many kangaroos this evening! Loved the birdlife too. The Mayfield Gardens are amazing, what a fantastic project.
Many thanks for a warm and comfortable stay and for the eggs and slice.

Thank you so much for the most wonderful weekend in your beautiful cottage. We have loved our stay and our daughter has loved running around the property and feeding the animals carrots. We wish we had booked a longer stay!
Thank you so much for your hospitality. We look forward to seeing you again.

Thanks for having us to stay at your beautiful property. We enjoyed every aspect of it. The quiet, the cows, the trees, the walks, the chats, the donkeys, the fire, the night sky etc etc!
Your hospitality was perfect. We would love to come back sometime.

Thank you for having us for a couple of days on your property. It has been a lovely getaway from the daily grind in Brisbane. Our main reason for visiting was to visit the Jenolan Caves, which were amazing but your cottage added to the experience, by giving us a home away from home.
Waking up to frost everywhere was a highlight!

Thank you for having us, again! The girls loved the farm. We visit Jenolan Caves every year and the back road trip was a new adventure……..
See you next year. Many thanks.
