Our Useful Features & Services

Situated on top of the hill in the Dargle valley, between green paddocks and an enormous indigenous forest, Old Kilgobbin is the perfect haven for those wanting to escape from the hectic pace and pressures of city life. The main cottage, Gobbins’ Cottage, is a spacious double storey two bedroom home with a large open plan kitchen and a cosy lounge with underfloor heating for those chilly Dargle winters. The kitchen is well equipped with large fridge, oven and hob, microwave and there is a cupboard filled with spices, olive oil, teas, coffees and cookies. The veggie garden is right outside the back door, and you can collect eggs if your egg- finding skills are good (if not, bring your own!!). Climb the wooden stairs, past the Victorian style bathroom (shower and slipper bath), to the large bedroom that has 2 queen extra length beds, complete with down duvets and electric blankets, loads of antiques and a great sense of tranquility. The Cubbyhole, the little second bedroom, has a luxury bunkbed smothered in patchwork quilts and down duvets. The cool back veranda, nestled beside the veggie garden and old plum trees, offers a perfect spot to store your muddy gumboots . The front veranda is perfect for late breakfasts, lazy lunches, late afternoon G&Ts, and has a forest view to lift your eyes beyond all life’s deadlines.

A second cottage, the Chicken Coop, is a quaint Victorian style building with stained glass windows and has 2 single beds, a bathroom with shower, a cooking nook (complete with fridge, convection microwave and gas hob), and a closed- in wood and iron veranda that is the cosy lounge and breakfast area. The beds are high and comfortable, layered with down duvets and rose quilts, and as you lounge in the sun streaming through the veranda windows, you can watch the chickens wandering across the lawn towards the veggie garden.

Take a walk on this 450 hectare farm and you may see reedbuck grazing on the ryegrass fields ,the endangered oribi antelope blending into the hayfields , samango monkeys nibbling on nutgrass at the forest edge, and the shy duiker peeping out of his rocky home near the skinny dip dam. If you arrive home in the moonlight, the pesky porcupine may shake his quills at you and have you running for the cottage door! And of course you will see paddocks full of beautiful black horses because this is the home of Kilgobbin Friesian stud and HorsePlay.

Discount available if both cottages are booked by one party.
