You’ll love our place because of the totally unique setting in a rural environment, in the heart of an historic land mark farm and grounds of Beacon Hill Estate. est 1862.
You will find our place is close to all the local amenities, shopping, cafe's and restaurants that are a short 3 - 5 minute drive away. Situated just 2.5 km from the edge of Richmond shopping centre and 15 minutes from the airport.
The recently built shabby chic apartment with a vintage and french theme, is set in the shell of the old milking shed. Built in the early 1900's and now converted in to accommodation for family and travellers wanting a special country experience without the inconvenience of isolation or distance. The apartment is both rustic and comfortable and an additional trundler bed is available if required for an additional (4th) guest.
The apartment is self contained and guests will be able to enjoy the immediate grounds, interact with the pet deer, pig, yaks, ducks and other farmyard critters from time to time.
You may like to hike on the farm and this can be discussed with us. We live on the same property in the homestead and will be available to help if required. Of course we would love to meet you.
