The Old Dairy
Cudgera Creek, NSW, Australia • Sleeps 4 | Bedroom 1 | Bathroom 1
What was once an old milking shed sitting unloved for 40 years has been transformed from an empty shell into a sustainably-minded retreat that makes for a romantic escape or unique family holiday. The original timber was kept and creature comforts added in, including the oversize round bathtub. But while the interior is completely charming – and you can watch the sunrise from the four-poster canopy bed – the real energy is found just outside your door. Wander the farm and feed the goats, explore local bush trails on foot or by bike, pick fruit from the orchard, enjoy farm-fresh honey and marmalade with your breakfast, and toast marshmallows over the fire. And while the kids will love getting to know the pigs, Maggie and Martha, and playing ring toss and bocce, you can also reach the beach and creek of Pottsville in five minutes and Byron Bay in 25.
