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 escape your every day, unplug and reconnect with nature.

‘Cabarfeidh’ our working cattle station is located in the beautiful New England Region of NSW, surrounded by world-class National Parks.

We have a wonderful grazing history, with our adjoining property  ‘Ollera Station’, being settled in 1838 and remaining in our family hands.

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

We love welcoming guests to our part of the world, and hope they leave here 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 artists, garden designers, yoga instructors, etc…join us every year. Why not get a carload of friends together, and stay a night or two with us.

We hope to see you soon.
