Stockyard Mountain Cottage is a cosy and private off-grid cottage nestled on the mountain between Jamberoo and Tullimbar, less than 2 hours from Sydney. Set on 150 acres, the Cottage is located in a pretty corner of the property overlooking a dam and surrounded by lots of natural bush. Kangaroos often come to the dam in the evenings and there are "resident" wombats living near the Cottage. The property itself offers magnificent views over the escarpment, Jamberoo and the coastline.

The space
Best suited to either 1 or 2 couples but can also accommodate a couple with children. The Cottage has a downstairs bedroom and an upstairs loft bedroom - the loft is accessed by a pull-out ladder and care should be taken when accessing this space (please see photo showing loft access). There is a fully-equipped kitchen (small fridge only, no microwave and no dishwasher - best for simple creations rather than big cook-ups) and a 2 burner barbeque outside. There is also a bath in the bathroom to soak your cares away.
The Cottage is off-grid - it runs on solar and has an inverter for charging mobile phones or playing your own music but has no TV - it is a place for either taking time out for yourself or for interacting with those who are with you. It is a perfect spot to just chill out, read, write, go for walks, meditate, do yoga, listen to nature and sit by the fire with a wine in the evenings. Once you arrive you will probably not want to leave, however if you do want to explore the area then there are many options available.
Feel free to walk around the property but please be aware that it is a rural property with 2 small dams, so keep an eye on any children and watch where you walk.
The other vehicular track on our property leads to our neighbours property - please respect their privacy and avoid trespassing by turning back if you arrive at their site whilst out for a walk (note: security cameras are present).
The drive in from the main gate is about 2km and is via a shared gravel road - accessible by 2WD.
There is complimentary tea and coffee.

Guest access
Guests are free to roam the entire property.
Guests must not trespass onto the adjoining property located at the end of the other vehicular track - turn back as soon as any vehicles or outbuildings are sited.

Other things to note
The Cottage has a septic facility - so care is needed with waste disposal. No foreign objects are to be put down the toilet.
The Cottage also operates from a rainwater tank, so please be considerate with the amount of water you use.
The Cottage runs on Solar and has an inverter - this is for recharging phones or occasionally playing your own music (it will not support hairdryers, coffee machines or other items which draw a lot of power).
Please note that the Cottage is completely off-grid, so you will need to be mindful of your power usage - only use the lights you need and don’t have phones etc constantly plugged into the charger (inverter). Make the most of where you are and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.
