The daily grind of inner-city living can rapidly take its toll on one’s mental and physical health leaving you feeling rundown, and wrung-out. While caught up in the routine hustle and bustle of “9-to-5” life, it can be easy to forget how important spending time in nature is.
Luckily, the perfect fix is just two hours’ drive from Sydney. Jamberoo Valley Farm Cottage is now offering an incredible farm stay experience that is certain to help you unwind and recharge your batteries. Imagine, waking to the peaceful sounds of the countryside around you and padding your way barefoot across your private cottage’s timber floors to a window… Gazing out across a seemingly endless valley, you’ll find your breath catching in your throat, meanwhile visions of the standard smoggy cityscape are long forgotten.
The cottage is perfect for a romantic retreat, or a family getaway and sleeps up to six people. The two comfortable bedrooms are well-appointed with a plush queen-sized bed in one, and two king-single bunk beds in the other.
For the kids in tow, Jamberoo Valley Farm is brimming with activities that are both entertaining and also educating for children. What better place to teach your children about where their food comes from than directly at the source? They’ll enjoy greeting the chickens in the morning and collecting freshly laid free-range eggs for breakfast as well as walking around the farm and taking in the sights. There are also plenty of other farm animals to be spotted including sheep, cows and pigs, as well as wildlife such as echidnas, deer, wombats and kangaroos.
For a daytime adventure out-and-about in the local area, Jamberoo Valley Farm managers, Dom and Tash, recommend bushwalking in the Minnamurra rainforest, exploring the nearby beaches or checking out the markets in Kiama.
Decked out with thoughtful touches and luxurious Scandinavian finishes, the cottage is incredibly well equipped with a range of amenities. A steaming outdoor Swedish hot tub offers the perfect vantage point to relax while taking in the breathtaking Jamberoo Valley views. For the warmer months, the tub is transformed into a cold plunge pool to provide the perfect place to cool down and refresh in summer.
The fully equipped kitchen will entice enthusiastic cooks, while those who’d prefer to let someone else do the cooking will find a delicious selection of local pubs and restaurants in nearby towns including Kiama, Gerringong and Gerroa.
