We stayed in one of three bedrooms (with en-suite bathroom) in an outbuilding with a communal kitchen and lounge. Everything was very tidy, and there were scented candles in the room and chocolates on the bed. The bath was not really adult-sized, though. Ingredients for breakfast were provided, but you needed to prepare it yourself and wash up afterwards. There wasn't a dishwasher or even a drying rack. When we stayed there, the toilet paper holder fell off from the wall. Overall though, it was a relaxing break except for some glitches which, for the price charged, we weren't expecting. It's a very picturesque hobby-farm location with a view of lush rolling hills and some farm animals.
Late in the week, we decided to have a couple of nights away on the Central Coast and found the Acreage B&B to be available. It is located in rural acreage and is reasonably quiet. The room is not overly large, but adequate for 2 night stay with a good covered balcony to sit out on and look out over the valley views, which have unfortunately for the whole area, been somewhat drought effected. The breakfast arrangements worked well enough with the common kitchen and dining area. We had a nice visit but for what is being sold as a premium B&B, the less than premium detail in presentation of the room, the general building and grounds maintenance means that it is difficult to give it a really great rating for what is a reasonably high nightly tariff.
Lovely secluded, relaxing spot at the Acreage, which was a great setup for 4 of us on a girls weekend. 3 spa suites in a separate house from the owners, with kitchenette and large lounge. We organised a mobile beauty spa company to pamper us for the afternoon with our self catered bubbles and snacks. We were far too relaxed to go out, spending the evening watching cable tv Sex & the City reruns and eating takeaway. Continental breakfast plus eggs/bacon for those up for cooking. Coffee pod machine a bonus! Definitely coming back.
Very much enjoyed two night stay. Breakfast's highlight a huge serve of fruit. Bottle of champagne on arrival. Balcony overlooks property and valley with an array of birds. Alpacas including an adventurous two week old one. Selection of books and DVDs. Large share room with couches and big screen TV. With three rooms it seems to work on who every is first. You guessed - it wasn't us! No bar fridge in room but large share one downstairs. Would stay again - given card for 10% discount on next visit.
What a wonderful place The Acreage is! Nestled in a peaceful valley at the midpoint between Avoca Beach (5 min drive) and Terrigal Beach (7 min drive) you will find a beautifully appointed B & B. The Acreage is a real oasis of calm and tranquility - after a long day, we relaxed straight away in our room, which came with everything you might expect and was also large, light and spotless. Marisa and Rick, the owners, couldn't have been more welcoming and generous with their time. Highly recommended. We look forward to returning.
