The space

Our four bedroom home is situated on five easily accessible acres about eight kilometres from the rural city of Orange , about three hours west of Sydney and about one thousand metres above sea level so we enjoy a lovely cool climate .

The area is home to many excellent cool climate wineries, cherry and apple orchards and features the popular "FOOD" week held each year which attracts people from all over Australia.

The farm is one and a half hours east of the wonderful Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo and the Parkes Radio Telescope the famed "Dish" of the movie.

The home is situated in a large garden with lots of outdoor living furniture and a barbecue under cover for use in any weather.

We have two stables with feed and gear rooms and a full sized sand dressage arena plus lovely country rides through surrounding bush. There are 4 grassed paddocks with electric fencing.

If you would like to take your horse for a country holiday this may well be the spot, however we do not provide horses. You would need to bring all equipment and feed for your horse and be completely responsible for it.

We have four bedrooms with two queen beds, one double and a pair of twins. The main bedroom is very large, situated above the double garage with en suite, walk in wardrobe and its own patio.

The weather in summer is generally warm but not hot and in winter cool to cold with morning frosts and rarely some light snow. Not enough to ski!.

You really will need your own car as there is no public transport out here and your neighbours are a considerable distance away as all blocks are about five acres.
Orange and the nearby historic and picturesque village of Millthorpe is the home of many highly regarded restaurants and cafes and a full range of top quality shops are available should you feel the urge.

The place is exactly what you see. Beautiful countryside, within easy distance of town and really nicely appointed. Ian makes sure the place is spotless and there is nothing more you could ask for. The few things he provided for breakfast on our first morning was a nice touch.
