Mount Darragh Friesian Farm Stay

The light and airy farmhouse has been completely modernised. A slow combustion fire keeps the rooms warm over winter, making it perfect for curling up with a glass of wine and a good book, or just enjoy the outlook. The farmhouse has beautiful views to the north and overlooks the paddock where you may see a stunning Friesian horse or two grazing. This 70 acre property is a working horse establishment. Enjoy the tranquillity of a rural environment whilst being only 20 minutes from the coast.

The Space

The farmhouse has stairs leading up to the veranda. The lounge area has comfortable couches and chairs, with a slow combustion fire and a large flatscreen tv. The kitchen has all modern appliances including bread maker, with basic pantry items provided. The bedrooms are all good sizes; 2 of the bedrooms are adjoining, so you have to access to back bedroom through one of the other bedrooms. Unlimited wifi is also available.

The town of Wyndham has a great general store/cafe that’s open 6 days a week, serves breakfast and lunch and also has general groceries and fuel.
Merimbula is an easy 30 min drive from the farm with amazing beaches, some of which are horse and dog friendly.

Guest Access

The entire farmhouse is available for guest use.

All our fences are electrified, so children or dogs must be supervised at all times. We have dogs, chooks and cats as well as horses, so any dogs coming onto the property must be friendly and/or on a lead. We also have dams that are easily accessible, another reason for supervision of young children.

You are free to wander around the property, however paddocks where there are horses are may not be accessed unless accompanied by myself.

Interaction with Guests

If you would love to come for a holiday with your horse, I have accommodation for your horse (maximum of 4 horses) $20 per horse per night, which includes use of stables and/or undercover yards and meadow hay is provided. This can be booked once accommodation is arranged. If riding on the property, a waiver form will be emailed to you and must be completed and returned prior to your stay. This also includes use of all facilities. Indoor arena, outdoor arena, round yard, wash bay. Beach is 30 min drive to horse friendly beach. Room to park floats and trucks.

I will be also offering dressage lessons for $50 a lesson on your own horse.
Lessons on a dressage schoolmaster Friesian are also available for $70 per lesson (limited availability).

Other things to note

We use tank water, which tastes great but is a precious resource. Please be water wise when showering and using the washing machine.

Guest Reviews

I spent five blissful days and nights in this delightful old farmhouse, which has been done up beautifully. I loved the front verandah – it’s the perfect place to sit and soak up the magic of the surrounding countryside – especially at sunrise and sunset! Sue is the dream host, helpful and caring and happy to share the pleasures of living on a farm. I was overwhelmed by her generosity when she offered to take photos of me on Friso, so that my friends could see where I had been holidaying. They were delighted! It was perfect. I will be back again as soon as possible! Many, many thanks Sue and Nick, for providing such a beautiful home away from home.

Our stay at Sue’s place was very last-minute, after a planned camping trip fell through. Sue’s prompt response really helped us out of a jam, and we (self, husband, baby, and two dogs!) showed up at her place within half an hourof making the booking. The Farmhouse has a quirky layout, with 3 bedrooms, one of them with a king-sized bed. The bathroom is huge and includes a spa, a good shower and plenty of hot water. The kitchen is well provisioned. The property is located in a lush valley, and there’s dogs, cats, chickens, and some of the most beautiful horses you’ll see. Sue was kind enough to take me around to meet some of them. Sue was a friendly and kind host, and I would recommend her place.

My family stayed at Sue and Nick’s farm stay in July. We have already planned our return trip. It was fantastic and was the family country get away we all needed. The cottage was lovely and spacious with plenty of firewood for toasty winter nights. The beds were very comfortable and the morning views are simply lovely (not to mention the coffee!). Lots of farm fresh eggs every morning, our kids running through the fields, playing with pups and feeding the horses along with Sue, the toasting marshmallows under the stars…it was brilliant. Our children also loved the opportunity to ride, under Sue’s excellent tuition. Thank you Sue and Nick for all your generosity and hospitality, for sharing your passion for your absolutely magnificent horses, and for making us feel like we were staying at a friend’s farm. We can’t wait to return! Kath, Dave and the (very happy) kids.
