“An amazing place to explore New England”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

What an amazing place to stay...

The farmstay is in a stunning location that feels miles away from the road between Armidale and Dorrigo.

Lucy, who runs the farmstay, offers a free breakfast on the first morning, consisting of bacon, eggs and fresh milk - all of which was delicious.

The house has got all of the home comforts anyone could need.

“Ideal rental to explore New England High Country”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a great time at Ridgemount House. You are completely “away from it all”, down a smooth gravel road about a km from Waterfall Way without another dwelling to be seen within the very extensive view. We opted not to take part in the farm activities and were left in perfect seclusion. The sky at night is breathtaking.

Comfort was five star with large, clean rooms and an efficient air conditioning system with (silent) outlets in each room. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking from spices to aluminium foil, so all you need do is bring some food (except for the delicious first breakfast which is provided).

The property is in an ideal position if you want to visit the tourist attractions in New England. Three National Parks are less than 20 minutes to the East and Wollomombi Gorge (a must see) is about 10 minutes to the West. Going further afield, Dorrigo (rainforests) is about an hour to the East and Armidale (and Gara Gorge) about 40 minutes to the West.

We created wi-fi from the mobile reception and found it was good.

“Beautiful picturesque location”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Very comfortable house with all facilities in beautiful picturesque location. We hope to be able to return some time. Please note those for whom it is important there is no wifi, though mobile reception (including data) was fine for our stay.
