The Sykes family are from convict stock who were pardoned and granted land by Governor Macquarie (Goulburn and surrounds remain in the family) and have been on the land for generations. It was time for this generation to return to our roots. We live on the property and welcome you to share our experience of what we love about Mudgee and the Australian country.
Affectionately named Kurrajong, Cypress and Stringybark; the north-facing cottages are secluded with your own exclusive access. Each cottage comes with a fully equipped kitchen, including full sized fridge, microwave, cooktop, oven, and popcorn machine (popcorn included). There is an onsite laundry facility for long-term guests, or guests travelling through. Guests love that we’ve 'thought of everything and a home away from home’. Please contact us for a list of inclusions, so you don’t have to ‘bring the kitchen sink!’
Relax and unwind
Your cottage features a wood burning fire, R/C air conditioner, library, magazines, CDs and DVDs, board games, balcony and Weber Q BBQ to cook and enjoy delicious local produce collected on your travels. Plus for the more energetic, a frizz bee and soccer ball for use on the open paddocks.
Each cottage has the same configuration: 2 queen size bedrooms to accommodate 4 guests + 1 foldaway for a child, plus portable cots, high chairs and baby baths for the little ones available on request. Your Cottage bathroom has a walk-in shower including toiletries, hairdryer and first aid kit.
Take in the views
We have 35+ birds on the property and plenty of places to sit and observe them in their native surroundings. Please contact us for Birds of Bandalong Catalogue. Each Cottage has a ‘star-gazing basket’ and on a clear night, the stars are simply 5 star. Mudgee Observatory is a near neighbour and guest love the experience (bookings essential).
