Stunning scenery coupled with luxury comfort and the cuteness of newborn animals made for the perfect spring country getaway. Jill and Ray are without a doubt the best hosts we’ve experienced. Jill bought us freshly made scones and homemade jam when we arrived and Ray kindly took our little trainee farm girl on two fabulous farm tours to meet and feed the animals and see the newly born lambs and calves. Super comfortable beds, a roaring fire on chilly nights, lots of thoughtful touches and fresh eggs and herbs straight from the garden. Only a 2 hour drive from Sydney, the Southern Highlands has a south of France vibe with lush rolling hills, quaint villages, and a surprising number of wineries and excellent restaurants. Thank you Jill and Ray for your exceptional hospitality, you have a truly spectacular property in a magnificent location and we’d love to come back again soon. Best wishes to Kalamata (the baby lamb we named) x
The only thing we didn't like was having to leave, could have happily stayed for a week.
We loved the breathtaking view from this property. We particularly enjoyed the walk to the hidden cabin. We loved the tranquility ! My seven year old daughter loved feeding the animals!! We shall come back!
Exeter Farm Stay was the perfect spot for my time in the Southern Highlands. It gave me the chance to breathe deeply crisp air while gazing over rolling hills. The views from the rooms were wonderful - watching sun and shadows over the hills was relaxing. The great bonus was the hidden cabin. It was a such a great thing to have a walk across the farm with an enticing destination. A wonderful place to sit with a cuppa watching wallabies and birds at sunset.
The kids loved the farm experience and Jill was extremely accommodating in showing us around. The little extras like DVDs, board games and soccer balls made the experience even better for them. The place was immaculate and comfortable and the little food hamper was perfect.
No stove top, but this was not a big deal as there was a microwave and bbq available for use.
The scenery was amazing, the animals were cute and fun but the hosts, Ray and Jill were most accommodating and friendly especially for our ten year old child. We'll be back for sure!
Set on a 140 acre picturesque, cattle grazing property, just outside the village of Exeter in the heart of the NSW Southern Highlands, this elegantly presented farmhouse provides guests with a peaceful country getaway just 1.5 hours from Sydney and Canberra. Your 2 bedrooms can accommodate 2 couples or a family with up to 2 children. Your self-contained accommodation has its own entrance and undercover parking. The apartment comprises living room with wood fire, kitchenette with microwave, breakfast/dining room, 2 bedrooms - queen bed in one and either a king or twin in the other - and a large bathroom, with heated floor, which is shared by you and your friends/family. We invite you to enjoy any part of the property, from the landscaped gardens to exploring all of our 140 acres. Within our property we have around 60 acres of native bush and various walks that you can take depending on how energetic you are feeling. A highlight is our small sunset cabin, hidden away in a secluded valley, where you can enjoy a picnic breakfast, afternoon tea or a sundowner drink and nibbles. It's a great place to relax and commune with nature. This is a working farm focussed on breeding Dexter cattle, a small and friendly breed. In spring and summer we typically have 25-30 cute calves running around. We also have around 15 Suffolk sheep and an alpaca named Angelique. Native animals abound - kangaroos, wombats and a myriad of birds. You may even spot an echidna up on the hill.
