We offer self-contained accommodation in private cottages and a host of Creative Arts and Health & Well-being Workshops in our garden.


My Rural Retreat is a beautiful place to unwind, escape your every day, and reconnect with nature. You will stay on ‘Cabarfeidh’ our working cattle station which is located in the beautiful New England Region of NSW, surrounded by world-class National Parks.

We have a wonderful grazing history, operating alongside historic ‘Ollera Station’, which was settled in 1838 and remains in family hands.

As well as managing our commercial Angus herd, Tom and I are passionate about rural communities, supporting local, eating fresh food, enjoying gorgeous gardens, and finding beauty in the simple things in life.

We love welcoming guests to our part of the world, and hope they leave relaxed, re-charged, and with an extra spring in their step.

Whilst here you can do as little or as much as you like. Winter sees early morning frosts and clear sunny days, new life is all around us in Spring. Summers are temperate and our Autumn colour is spectacular. Fish for trout along Georges Creek, picnic under the willows, curl up in a hammock amongst the elms, enjoy red wine beside the fire, or visit the interesting and eclectic towns of Guyra, Armidale, Inverell, and Glen Innes, all within a 50 min drive.

And make sure you check out our workshops. We have so many talented people in our region, from artists to garden designers to yoga instructors, and so on. It will be a pleasure to share them with you. So get a carload of friends together, come and enjoy a workshop and stay a night or two with us. We hope to see you soon.
