Travellers' Choice
Built in 1858 by the Hon. Sir John Marks as a 'gentleman's residence', Terragong House is included on the Register of National Estate with the Australian Heritage Commission, as well as on the Register of the National Trust of Australia. A local landmark and a wonderful example of Georgian Colonial architecture, the house sits on 12 acres of gardens and pastures. Your hosts Darryl and Simon have completed 18 months of sympathetic renovations, including construction of a new kitchen and family room annex as well as the addition of en suite facilities for our three luxuriously appointed guest rooms, which are located in the single-storey weatherboard wing, dating from the late 1800s. Each is queen bedded, and has a unique, tasteful and sophisticated décor - with original period details such as pressed metal ceilings and sash windows, as well as vintage, designer and antique furnishings. Accommodation includes two-course breakfast served daily and one hour of complimentary wine and nibbles each afternoon served in the Library. Terragong offers a bed and breakfast experience unsurpassed in the region for luxury, exclusivity and a genuinely warm welcome.

Terragong 1858 Country House was much more than we expected. The setting is a beautiful Georgian house in a rural landscape of gnarled old trees and green pastures. It is not far from the village of Jamberoo. What made this stay so enjoyable was the generous hosts who go out of their way to make you feel very welcome. Their attention to detail in every aspect of their home and what we experienced was extraordinary. I cannot imagine more attentive hosts. They operate on a very generous philosophy that too much is never enough. Their heritage house has been lovingly restored so it is much more than a beautiful home. It has been filled with fine furnishing and collections that they are keen for their guests to enjoy. I recommend that you read all the other reviews for more details, or like us treat yourself to a stay at Terragong and you will be satisfied beyond your expectations.

Thank you to Simon and Darryl for making our weekend so perfect - we had the most wonderful stay. We highly recommend Terragong for a special event, a chance to relax or just because. From the moment Simon and Darryl greeted us on our arrival, we felt welcomed like friends and instantly felt at home. Terragong is stunning, it’s a beautiful Georgian home that just exudes the love and care the owners have put into everything they’ve done. It is exquisitely decorated and has views of the gorgeous property and the surrounding undulating farmland. Everything was so lovely that I had to sit for a while in each of the public rooms to take it all in - the fine furnishings, the timber windows and doors from the 1800s, the artworks and the views. I think that Simon and Darryl are the best hosts we’ve ever had - they have thought of everything that a guest could want and done more. Simon is an amazing cook, and his love of cooking and fine food is showcased in every last detail, from the beautiful menu tailored to each guest, the incredible 2 course breakfasts, the delicious platters for happy hour and drinks and chocolate left out should you want a night cap at the end of the night. Other reviewers have mentioned the boiled fruit cake on tap, and yes, that was also given a good nudge during our stay. Oh and then there is Daisy, their lovable, spoilt, but rightly so, rescue - she was the icing on the cake.

Terragong is a very upmarket B&B and unlike a lot of B&Bs it lives up to everything it claims to be. House is beautiful, pool is great, and Simon & Darryl are wonderful hosts - you feel as if you’re old friends rather than just paying guests in their home ! Simon’s breakfasts are amazing too !

I can’t speak highly enough of Terragong 1858 Country House Bed & Breakfast. Simon and Darryl are the most amazing hosts, and the house itself combines beautiful heritage style with modern luxurious touches. It really was a home away from home for us, and we can’t wait to visit again.

We just spent last weekend of Nov 2020 in this beautiful Heritage Farm House in Jamberoo, Kiama. Simon and Darryl were very welcome when we arrived. The House is amazing, very well designed and maintenanced, every little touch from the owner makes it perfect (little flowers in bedroom). Simon baked us all a cake to share during our stay, cooked yummy snack food during happy hour in the afternoon and prepared every morning a healthy breakfast which was very impressive. Even we were there during hottest day of Spring, 40-43 deg but the house design makes it very cool. The bed is so comfortable which we slept through whole night and almost late every morning for breakfast. We love the swimming pool most because it makes us feel like we were having an escape to somewhere in Italy or French village in Europe. Simon and Darryl are great host, they advised all good restaurants and places to visit in the area. We travel alot in Australia and this is one of place we want to come back. Hope soon. Thanks from Leo and Alex.
