Decidedly disappointed, the food was very generic and childlike. Everything was scheduled and we felt compelled to be at certain places at certain times. The young woman showing us was snappy as my daughter was a little fearful and impatient even when i explained. I would not

Thanks for being so candid I suppose I can take from this that it wasn't for you and I get that. Our food is child friendly because that is our market we don't claim to be a foody experience although we produce much of the produce ourselves and rely on local growers for much more. I'm not sure about your guide though I have not had female field staff for quite some time in any event I expect all my staff to be empathetic to those who have had little or no exposure to farm animals, great and small. Our program is structured and overwhelmingly suits the bulk of our guests. As a working farm we have a huge amount of complexity and competing interest for capital spend, I think (hope) its fair to say we are in drought recovery the cost of getting through that alone is not understood by most, we're not out of the woods but it feels a lot better than this time last year! Our lodges range from 90 to 150 yrs old they are clean, serviced have the amenities you would expect but we're a farm not a resort. The fencing is to serve a function not a magazine, we have extensive 4 wire electrics for our cell grazing area, and all internal fences are functional. Our driveway fence is old but secure (electric) although this is being replaced however the drought has changed our time lines. We need all the feedback we can muster because that where progress lives, I take your comments on board, cheers.

Blair & Elise where fantastic. We had a blown head Gasket , but we managed to get there at the end. On Arrival we there in time for dinner. Blair had a glass of wine waiting for me at the dinner table. We felt so relaxed. It was so sad to leave at the end. I didn't have my car

Well you certainly earned your break! We were keen for you to be able to enjoy your short break as soon as you arrived, looks like we achieved that. We had a great weekend lots of fun and engagement (a big thing for us). Hope to see you back here at the farm some time soon with all the automotive reliability you need ! Cheers.

We spent a magnificent weekend at Mowbray Park Farm. This exceptionally child friendly farm caters for everyone’s needs. The setting of the farm is beautiful and it is hard to believe that it is only just over an hour from Sydney. Whilst there is nothing fancy about the farm

Thank you very much for your review, you have captured well how we see and consider the priorities of our business. We are a working farm so you're seeing it from that perspective, by that I mean we don't have all the bells and whistles of a dedicated tourism facility. Really delighted you enjoyed our simple country style meals, our rooms and our 'old school' play ground. Look forward to your coming back and spending some more time with us. Cheers

We did a one night last minute stay in the tiny house at Mowbray. It was fabulous. You are free to wander around the farm and see the animals as well as participate in all the arranged activities. It’s relaxing and stress free and the hosts and staff make everything easy and

We stayed 2 nights at Mowbray Farm and found it a great place for a family holiday. There were always activities throughout the day and the freedom to roam wherever you wanted during any downtime. Kids loved the campfire, damper making, pony rides, and of course milking cows,

Gosh thank you for your wonderful and honest appraisal of your stay. I love to share all our reviews with the team this will thrill them all. We are a working farm, being ourselves is I think our strength. When families engage to the level you did our day blossoms especially through this drought we have at the moment although pleased to report we have had some rain. I hope you can find your way back here some time, that would be special. Cheers

There are also trains as far as Picton; best to check the Sydney trains site for timetables. Pick up from the station can be arranged by contacting the local taxi company en route: 133 834.

November is not school holidays here, but if it's weekend it will probably be busy. I believe their busiest nights are Friday and Saturday. They should be good with staffing, when we went the owner was away on holidays, it was school holiday period and their busiest time. We stayed in Barker lodge, can't comment on the other one. It's very rustic 3 star as expected on a farm.

Hi, would love to have come stay with us, unfortunately the best lodge for you is booked out that weekend. It is Cheddington Lodge it has 10 bedrooms, 3 with en-suite and queen beds, another 3 rooms with doubles , two lounges areas, small kitchenette and two bathroom areas. The rest of the rooms are dorm style with bunks and singles. have a look at our web site for details. This site does not let me put web site or email details in but I'm sure you can find ours and I'll scoot through additional details for you. If there are any other weekends that might suit let me know via an email or give me a call at 02 46809243. Cheers Blair

"All the rooms are great."
"Various options to suit your needs, self-cater or have it fully catered."
"Don't choose your room -- ask Mowbray Park to place you in what's most suitable"
"Families stay in one room with access to large common room/ kitchen"
"If you don't have a large family with you request a room away from bigger families - it can be pretty noisy."
