Heggy’s Farm Cottage near to both Kangaroo Valley & Berry, NSW, is a gorgeous rural retreat on a hilltop overlooking the typically green hills that are a classic feature of this part of rural NSW. The cottage itself is quaint, charming and very well appointed, but it comes second to its fabulous surroundings; the beautifully tended gardens, the farm and bushland, and the lovely views all around.
The homely little cottage can sleep a maximum of two, and is fully self catering and fully private. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a lounge area and one double bedroom and bathroom. Though modern, super clean and comfortable, the cottage, quiet refreshingly, doesn’t have any WiFi or TV; it is a place to switch off, though it does have a radio!
You can choose to have as much or as little interaction with the friendly farm owners as you like. The farm itself is a fully working farm, with cattle, hens and honey bees. It has won awards for some of its food, with its home spun honey, jams and chutneys, being especially popular.
To try some for yourself you will be offered a great, complimentary, gourmet breakfast basket to start the day with which includes fresh homemade bread and farm eggs, and of course their famous honey. You can also of course welcome to buy some of the farm produce to take home. The farm and the bushland that surrounds is lovely to wander around and has various walking trails that can be explored, and guests will also have facilities like the swimming pool and tennis courts at their disposal.
Near the famous Kangaroo Valley and to the town of Berry, NSW, the farm stay is a great base for exploring both. For those not familiar with the area you can read all about it here, but to sum up; this very lovely and very fertile part of rural NSW has long been famous for its rich agricultural tradition, then graduated into being equally famous for various forms of nature and agri-tourism.
Farm stays are just one aspect of this and sit alongside such things as farmer’s markets, wine tourism and general foodie culture. You’ll find plenty of good restaurants around that can rival some of the best in Sydney, where the general trend is to source the freshest ingredients from around Kangaroo Valley itself.
The small towns of Berry and Kangaroo Valley are beautiful and charming, and you’ll be just 15 minutes drive from each at the farm stay. A boat trip along the Kangaroo River is a particular highlight, as is a car trip; a slow drive in pretty much any direction around this gorgeous countryside is certain to impress.
Note: In line with the rural retreat concept no children or pets can be accommodated at this farm stay! And, as this place is very popular, and with only one cottage available, you’re very much advised to book ahead.
