The Cottage at White Birch Farm is a charming two bedroom fully self-contained cottage located on our 25 acre hobby farm at Robertson in the NSW Southern Highlands. It is north facing with stunning rural views from every sun-filled window, all the way to the Blue Mountains. The building is nestled in three acres of beautiful old established gardens including Japanese maples, magnolias, rhododendrons, azaleas and hundreds of bulbs. Our pastures support 13 friendly sheep, two alpacas, three donkeys, and some cattle. They all have names! We have also recorded 70 species of birds on the property.
There are two bedrooms sleeping four people in total. Bedroom 1 has a queen bed and bedroom 2 has two king single beds. Tariff includes all linen, towels, bedding, tea and coffee and free wifi. Reverse cycle air conditioning is in the living room and there are oil heaters and electric blankets in the bedrooms. There is a flat screen 3D TV in the lounge, and DVDs, books and games are provided. The well equipped kitchen includes an electric stove, oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and cooking utensils. A gas BBQ is on the verandah. The cottage is on town water supply.
