The space
The homestead is located five minutes drive from Peel Forest village.

Wake each morning to the sound of birdsong and nature. Plenty of space for you to relax and unwind, whether it be in tone of rooms of the house, on the veranda or under a tree in the large garden, surrounded by native bush.

A number of private rooms are available - please see my other listings.

Guests will have access to a choice of two bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, as well as a number of other rooms in the house i.e. a TV room and conservatory.

Other things to note
A great setting, good food and company. Feel free to relax in the house and garden, or use the house as a 'home base' for local events & activities.
