Where you’ll be

Rydal, New South Wales, Australia

Rydal is a quaint little village just beyond the Blue Mountains which was named after the English village of Rydal where the poet William Wordsworth lived for many years. For two weekends in September, Rydal hosts a daffodil festival to raise funds for local charities.
The Owl Pen Cottage was built in 1832 as a kitchen for the historic Queen Victoria Inn, and was situated on the Cobb and Co route to Bathurst.
The surrounding native bush provides lovely walks and bike rides. Try your hand at trout fishing or canoeing in nearby Lake Lyell and Lake Wallace, or four (4) wheeling driving in the nearby forest, alternatively take a leisurely drive to a local cafe or country pub for lunch.
It is the perfect location to explore the towns of Bathurst, Orange and Mudgee (wineries, galleries etc) and only 40 minutes from the gorgeous village of Leura and the attractions of the Blue Mountains.
