The Kuchel family built our homestead and outbuildings in the 1860s. We have rebuilt the old Kuchel stone dairy to create two adjoining, fully self-contained cottages we have named them Sunset and Dawn to match the best views you can capture from their private outdoor areas.

We have also restored a very old stone building to create The Stables, the ultimate in pampering, with generous proportions, a private garden, cathedral skylights, luxury spa and cosy wood combustion fire.

At certain times of the year when we are not in residence, we offer the Homestead for short-term residential use. If you are looking for a peaceful country experience with all of the comforts of home, the Homestead offers everything youll need for a relaxing break.

Each is beautifully appointed with a blend of new and antique furniture, polished timber floors, textural stone and mini orb ceilings for added warmth and charm. All feature private parking and outdoor areas with heaters and BBQs, In short, everything you need to (big deep breath in and out) really relax.
