The Cookhouse is the old cook’s quarters/kitchen/dining room for the shearing teams that used come and stay for the annual shearing. The facilities are no longer required as the shearers we now use live locally, so we have converted the cookhouse into a simple, but very comfortable, 2 bedroom cottage.

Being located well away from everything else, about 300m from the river, it is ideal for people who want the feel of camping but with a warm bed and a solid roof over their head.
The cookhouse has 2 bedrooms; one with a queen bed, the other with 2 singles, a sitting/dining room, kitchen with gas stove and oven, outdoor covered living area with a large BBQ and open fire pit. An external shower and toilet block is about 50 metres away.
In keeping with the camping feel we have intentionally not provided TV or DVD facilities but feel free to bring your own screens as the cookhouse is amply powered (no pun intended) by a 1.5 Kw stand alone solar system with good storage and there is good mobile coverage, or you could just avail yourself of the numerous boardgames and books supplied for those nights in front of the wood heater.
The “Cookhouse” accommodation suits 4 people comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms, 1 queen and 2 singles. If required, we can accommodate 1 extra adult OR 2 extra kids on trundle beds.
