We offer self-contained accommodation in private cottages and a host of Creative Arts and Health & Well-being Workshops in our garden.


My Rural Retreat is a beautiful place to unwind, escape your everyday and reconnect with nature. Our property ‘Cabarfeidh’ is a working cattle station located in the beautiful New England Region of NSW, surrounded by world class National Parks.

We have a wonderful grazing history, operating alongside historic ‘Ollera Station’, settled in 1838 and remaining in family hands.

Tom, my husband does most of the heavy lifting on our property, managing our commercial Angus herd. My role and one I cherish is to keep the wheels turning for our family of five.

I am passionate about rural communities, supporting local, eating fresh food, gorgeous gardens and finding beauty in the simple things in life.

And I love welcoming guests to our part of the world, and hope they leave relaxed, re-charged and with a greater sense of life balance.

Whilst here you can do as little or as much as you like. Winter sees early morning frosts and clear sunny days, new life is all around us in Spring. Summers are temperate and our Autumn colour is spectacular. Fish for trout along Georges Creek, picnic under the willows, curl up in a hammock amongst the elms, enjoy red wine beside the outdoor fire or visit the interesting and eclectic towns of Guyra, Armidale, Inverell and Glen Innes, all within a 50 min drive.

With prior arrangement we can organise a cheese platter on arrival, breakfast basket or picnic hamper.

And make sure you check out our workshops. We have so many talented people in our region and beyond, from artists, to garden designers to yoga instructors and so on. It will be a pleasure to share them with you. Get a car load of friends together, come and enjoy a workshop and stay a night or two with us. Hope to see you soon.
