A homely alternative to motels! This B&B (note please, this is not self catering but a well-provisioned help yourself breakfast is provided) is on the northern edge of town, only 2 minutes' drive from the Great Western Highway, 12 minutes' level walk from the station and Main Street shops and cafes. The hills form our backdrop and the garden overlooks the cricket field and hockey pitches. There is offstreet parking for cars/bicycles. Well behaved pets are very welcome after prior discussion.
Situated a 2 minute drive from the Great Western Highway and 12 minute level walk from the station and Main Street, this charming house (and its dwellers!) on the edge of town will welcome you for your visit/stopover. The building was built in 1870 to house the meetings of the Directors of the Hermitage Colliery adjacent (gone now!!!!!) then extended to offer them overnight accommodation. Now over 100 years later it returns to that role!
This will be a refreshing alternative to motel accommodation! We are surrounded on 3 sides by garden with ancient oaks and linden trees and this area is pet friendly. It overlooks the cricket and hockey pitches.
The private wing has a cosy bedroom with queen sized bed, a stylish shower room and a large living room'. Here there is a fridge, kettle, toaster, coffee pod machine and this opens out onto the terrace (as do all the rooms) if you wish to breakfast al fresco. Please note - there is no kitchen. This is a 'serviced' Bed &Breakfast.
A mix'n'match selection of breakfast items will be provided for you to choose and prepare yourselves at your leisure in the morning. Also do ask about special dietary needs.
All the rooms open onto a verandah and terrace with formal lily pond.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We are always around, pottering about in our own part of the house and garden. We like to think we are a sociable couple of individuals. But you can have any level of privacy you want.
We do stop for tea and cake each afternoon and you'd be welcome to join us!
Being classic car lovers, pet people, hands-on (and we mean that!) gardeners and renovators with artistic families living in Lithgow or driving round the world in his Land Rover ... well we have lots of interests. We don't have pets at the moment, so will love to meet yours. And Morris Minor lovers will find an eager audience - we still haven't finished restoring ours! We've had a few old cars of various model and marque pass through our garage doors over the years!
We are pet lovers and will welcome your best friends by negotiation. Also we would happily babysit any small creature -2 or 4 legged - during the day or evening.
We don't have any baby cots. And pet owners please bring your own comforts for him/her.
We are a non smoking household and even have allergic reactions to smoke. I have many fragrant plants which is all we'd like to smell. If the thought of a few hours without a puff is unthinkable then we will place a chair downwind in the garden!!!!
This is not a rule - it's a request. If you wish to bring your pet(s) or baby, please do get in touch before requesting a booking and we'll have a chat about arrangements to see if they suit. We do not allow pets to be left alone in the rooms or in the garden if we are not home. We love dogs, but love the garden more! Bored dogs get up to mischief.... we know!!
We ask for a $100 fully refundable cash damage deposit on arrival, just in case Fido does the unthinkable .....
Note the formal pool is 300mm deep. Toddler supervision is the parent's responsibility.

Half and halfers - Australian/English. Ex B&B and holiday cottage providers in the Shropshire Hills and then Cornwall, now B&B hosts in NSW in the town which our creative sons and families have made their home. You can be assured we will be the BEST guests and old hands at hosting! We love gardens and Morris Minors - but always seem to be working on both! - and by proxy Land Rovers through a son who, although born with a rare condition called Noonan Syndrome, has been travelling the world solo in his Land Rover for several years. Somewhere in Guatemala I think just now.....
