We stayed here for 2 nights with 8 adults, 5 kids and 2 toddlers. It was perfect, well stocked kitchen so we cooked up a storm, chickens at the back door, a gorgeous view. We all loved it and the kids had a ball.

This house is exactly as described and pictured, but what the description doesn't convey is just how beautiful the view is. Everything about our stay here was easy and everything we needed (including umbrellas and gum boots) was there. We were only there for 2 nights for a family wedding, but the spaciousness of the house was great, the beds were comfortable, the shower plentiful and warm. Loved the chooks pecking around outside too. The drive was a little bumpy due to unseasonal heavy rains, but this all added to the fun. We were happy customers. Thanks Kathy and Frank!

A group of eight of us (ladies) stayed at Budderoo House for a weekend getaway. The house was spotless, spacious and well-equipped. The scenery was amazing and the farm was fun to explore. Location was private & peaceful, yet only a few minutes drive into the town of Kangaroo Valley. Thanks Frank & Cathy!

Response from Frank:
Thanks for staying with us! Lovely group of ladies who relaxed and enjoyed the property. The House was left clean neat and tidy. Also thanks for keeping an eye on the mother hen during your stay, two little chicks hatched the next week!

Lovely place, close to town but nice and quiet. Lots of room for a big group and the ice machine rocks in the hot weather

We had a great family break, with 3 generations. The kids enjoyed feeding the goat and collecting eggs. The farm is in a great location, easy walk into town. We went exploring and had a wander around the whole farm, very relaxing and gorgeous scenery.

Our stay was for a family get together with 7 adults and 2 kids (5,3). It was rainy and overcast but that didn't spoil our time at Budderoo House. There was plenty of space for everyone and we all loved the access to the chooks and other farm animals. The provision of chopped wood for the fire and animal feed was a real winner! Gorgeous scenery from the lounge and a delight to walk the grounds in the provided gum boots. Thankyou Frank and Cathy. The house and grounds are fabulous

We found Frank and Cathy extremely accommodating. They were responsive to all communication. Cathy checked in with us during our stay and was very friendly without being intrusive, a great skill Cathy! Budderoo House was great for our large group and we found it was well prepared for us, the beds were excellent and the firewood chopped and stacked ready for use was really appreciated. I would recommend this place to anyone as, while Kangaroo Valley itself is lovely to visit, once you are on the farm you didn't need to leave. Lovely views, the kids (big and small) enjoyed the farm animals and the open space. We had a great weekend.
