This outstanding 60 acre property is nestled at the very end of a small valley & surrounded on three sides by the Dharug National Park. The Hawkesbury River is a short stroll down the driveway. Plenty of space for the whole family, dog, boat & more

The space

The house is built from recycled timbers and has a wonderfully warm and inviting feel. There are two separate living rooms, one with a fire place and both with reverse cycle air conditioning. Both bathrooms have underfloor heating. The main house has 3 bedrooms: King, Queen, Singles x 4 plus a sofa couch in the living room. The cottage has one queen bed, kitchen and bathroom. There is a spare single mattress that can be placed where you need it. The cottage is never rented to another party. The whole valley is yours.
Minimum stay is two nights. Public holidays are either three or four night minimum stay. Xmas and New Year's Eve is a 6 night minimum stay.

Guest access

The house will be opened when you arrive. The kitchen is jammed with useful items. Plenty of plates, cutlery etc for large family feasts. There is a gas bbq outside with a large dinning area. The pool is for your private use. It has solar heating and a solar blanket which will extend the swimmable weather - definitely not warm enough through Winter. Portable cot and high chair on request.

Interaction with guests

You might meet Denise the cleaner or her husband Jeff the handyman. They live locally and can help you out. Shauna, the owner is on the end of the phone or email. We try our best to keep out of your way.

Other things to note

You can bring one well behaved, house trained family dog that doesn't shed hair. Please do not allow the dog on the couches or beds. Also, please be aware that there are horses on the property and they will kick dogs that chase them. Under no circumstances are the horses to be ridden. Although they are extremely friendly and love a cuddle, riding them would be unsafe.

Great place beautifully situated in your own nearly private valley. Well equipped and perfect for larger groups, such as we did with 3 families. Thanks Shauna we will be back.

Breakfast Creek House & Cottage easily accommodated 12 of us. It was such a beautiful home, nestled away in a secluded valley. Waking up each morning, to the view of a paddock, horses and stream nearby was a refreshing escape from Sydney. The fireplace was a welcome retreat in the evening after a full day of laying out by the pool or fishing. I would highly recommend this house for family and friend gatherings. The photos don't do the place justice.

My cleaner wasn't impressed with the way the house was left. Pool very low. Stain on blanket, we suspect its vomit

We had a lovely stay at the property. The pool was fantastic. Comfy beds, plenty of space , horses to pet and a fireplace!

The whole family had an absolutely fantastic time at Shauna's farmhouse. It was very private and enclaved by hills and trees. The house was clean and well equipped and everyone loved hanging out around the fireplace at night. The horses were very friendly and it was a great experience for the kids to come up close with the big animals. It was also a treat for the adults just lounging in the sun by the pool. Thanks Shauna for being a great host and for making us feel at home, we'll definitely come back again!

Great location. Well looked after and clean. The kitchen is very well equipped, the views and bush walks were stunning. Managed to end the days by the fire and left feeling refreshed.

Hi Shane Thanks for your great review. Sorry I didn't get to write your review before the 14 day expiry (I actually didn't know there was such a thing). You and your group were fabulous and left the house in a perfect condition. You are most welcome to come back in the summer. Cheers Shauna

Shauna provided attentive service and made it easy to find the house and get us settled in. Great secluded location, out of range of cell towers make it a fantastic place to get off the grid and enjoy time with friends and family without the constant pull of social media (while free wifi allows for a technology fix when needed). Had a an awesome weekend here with my girlfriend and a few other couples and we had more than enough space to hangout together in the spacious lounge (with fireplace), or kitchen/ livingroom areas while cooking. This was great in winter, but I'm sure summer here would also be great with access to the river. Highly recommended!

I'm tall. I don't eat oysters. My favourite movie is Harold and Maud. I once sang a duet with Barry Humphries. He was Ethel Merman, I was Donald O'Connor. I ski, ride horses, play basketball and don't watch reality TV.
I live in Sydney but luckily get to spend time in the country with my family.
