Family holidays are unique at Ashmar: try your hand at milking a cow, collecting farm eggs or feeding the animals and enjoy a hay ride around the property.

Set on a 200 hectare Hereford cattle stud, Ashmar Farmstay is a Destination NSW Award Winner offering a true country experience loved by all its guests, especially the kids!

Ashmar is a self-contained heritage cottage set in a beautiful country garden with spectacular views across the property and beyond. Designed and built with comfort and convenience in mind it includes 3 bedrooms sleeping up to 13 people, a 3-way bathroom, well-equipped timber kitchen and laundry/second toilet with washing and ironing facilities.

Plus there is extra accommodation for two more guests with a double bedroom, extra bathroom and sitting room ideal for the Grandmother and Grandfather’s retreat. This is available when more than 6 adults are staying.

During quiet moments enjoy the colour TV or in-house video or simply sit and relax while taking in the fabulous scenery. During the cooler months make yourself warm in front of the crackling wood fire. Included in the tariff are linen, towels and all cooking utensils for your convenience.

The cottage is set in a lovely country garden with barbecue in a covered courtyard. The garden is a wonderful place for you to enjoy the peace and quiet and to watch the many native birds and the nearby grazing cattle. Peace and quiet is assured as Ashmar has only the one cottage – you do not have to share this wonderful experience with anyone!

Such a fantastic time away! Ian and Gayle are wonderful - everything about our time at the farm was fantastic - our little boy was so excited to help Ian feed the animals every day! The cottage is beautiful. Thank you so much for a lovely time! We will definitely be back!

The best farm experience. Took me back to my childhood days. Was happy to see my kids running around the farm animals. Planning to go back again.

Hospitality at its best. Not only the stay was best, but also could come close to the nature. The kids had a blast with the farm animals. Loved it.

A GENUINE and classic farmstay. This is a small/medium operating farm (not just a tourist/hobby farm), with a great range of animals. All still hand-fed. There is one free-standing guest cottage near the farmers’ house (so only one group of guests at a time). You are free to either keep to yourself or join for the daily animal feeding or just explore the 500 acre property. Hosts, Ian and Gayle, are relaxed and accommodating and made us feel super welcome. While we were there, there were sheep, goats, 150 cattle, horses, ducks, rabbits, chickens, guinipigs and bunnies. And something always seems to be having babies. We were invited everyday to feed all animals, milk a cow by hand, bottle feed lambs and collect eggs. We also went on a hay run, learnt about the water, supplies and struggles with utilities on the land. And watched the dogs round up cattle and sheep. It was everything we were hoping for in a farm stay for our young family: the kind of experience you would have visiting your own family’s farm.
