Roscrea Homestead is set in a private and tranquil setting, on a working beef cattle property at Glen William on the banks of the picturesque Williams River.
Few of us are lucky enough to call this beautiful region home – most of us are probably urban, likely rushed, stressed, harried and tired. Sometimes we just need a place like this to recharge our batteries for a time.We will tell you upfront - when you’re at the property you just don’t want to leave.
Sure there’s lots of things you can do during your stay; you can enjoy fishing or picnicking on the river; visiting surrounding historic towns such as Dungog, Paterson or Morpeth; walking in the nearby World Heritage listed Barrington Tops National Park; taking a BBQ lunch to Chichester Dam or exploring Australia’s famous Hunter Valley wine district.
However – we want to be honest and tell you that there’s something so magical about being there that you won’t even want to go to the shops for food! Originally built as a getaway for RM Williams Chief Executive Group – it is now available to anyone needing to dip their toe into a place that soothes the soul.
Perfect for families and friends to stay for holidays or just the weekend, as all rooms have a private bathroom, which is essential for communal stays. Importantly – there is plenty to keep the kids entertained (and you in peace!).
There is a swimming pool, a cubby house, a media/playroom – and not least wide-open spaces, fresh country air and nature.
If peace and solitude is what you are seeking – well we have that in spades. The energy of the place is such that you will immediately and arrestingly feel healed, and nurtured.
