Just an easy three hours drive from Sydney, Kilfeacle is a working cattle farm surrounded by forest and with stunning views out to sea. Walk among the cows, feed the chooks, and play with Maggie our super-friendly Labrador!
Mollymook and Narrawallee beaches are only 15 minutes drive away. Visit historic Milton, go for a bushwalk on the farm (through rainforest or to the top of the old Potato Patch) or just relax on the verandah with a good book. Our guests often return here, loving the serenity.
The cottage was originally a creamery for the dairy farm that was established here in 1860. We added the small kitchen and bathroom as our family of four lived in it while we built the main house.
For sleeping, there is a cosy loft accessible by ladder (see photos) which can sleep up to four people (one kingsize mattress plus two short [1.5m long] single mattresses suitable for children). A pullout queen size sofabed downstairs can sleep two people. Bedlinen and towels are supplied.
A small kitchen provides most things for everyday cooking, including dishwasher, and although there is no oven there is a Weber BBQ outside.
The small bathroom has a restored antique clawfoot bath, shower and toilet.
A potbelly stove provides heating through winter (wood supplied). The cottage is very well insulated and stays warm in winter and cool in summer. It is a special place with breathtaking views and above all, peace and tranquillity offered by the forest.
Guests will have the cottage to themselves, as well as sole use of the small garden in front of the cottage, and bushwalking on the property. You are welcome to pick lemons, herbs and vegetables from the vegie garden.
We are happy to help you plan your stay, welcome you on arrival and provide assistance, but once here you will have privacy.
Kilfeacle is surrounded by bush, native birds, our cows and local wildllife. It's just a 15 minute drive to historic Milton, famous for its music culture, boutique shops and cafes (we will happily recommend our favourites!). Mollymook, Narrawallee and Conjola beaches are also very close, with surf lessons, snorkelling and beautiful Narrawallee inlet just great for small children to play in.
The cottage is close to our house, but it has a private outlook over three sides with forest, pasture and ocean outlooks.
Accès des voyageurs
Access to our property is by a mostly-sealed council-maintained road which is fine for two wheel drives, however if you drive a low-slung vehicle you will need to take care over the rollovers (take them at an angle) to avoid scraping your vehicle.
You will need your own vehicle to get to and from Kilfeacle.
Our road has a small creek crossing. During rare periods of extremely heavy rain it can flood for a day or two. This can temporarily make it difficult for guests to cross in 2WDs.
As a solution we can provide a 4WD to guests if the creek is higher than normal. This 4WD is easy to drive (automatic) and is registered and insured (with baby seats if required). We will give you all the advice you need so you can cross with ease.
Think of the creek as part of the authentic rural experience!
Please be aware that we have a lovely friendly labrador named Maggie who may visit you.
We will respect your privacy and wish for peace. Please respect ours too.
