8 people
This beautiful 1900s homestead sleeps 6 and 2 additional guests in Bonnie the cottage 2 steps away on a private property. We can host a total of 8 guests but there is still room for more. Please contact us.

Group accommodation venue within the beautiful Hawkesbury. This gorgeous Ranch in Grose Vale, set on 30 acres provides a private respite from city life—there is so much to explore on the property and animals to meet. From the pool to the enormous gardens, lake with a jetty and endless trails among the nature there is an abundance of things to keep anyone entertained large or small. Breath-taking views among the bellbirds and the odd koala if your lucky.
